Frequently asked questions:
• Why are Shubb Capos the best for not creating tuning problems?
Intonation is the feature that really distinguishes Shubb capos from all others. They are designed to close onto the neck just like your hand, and to press the string just like your fingertip, and they are totally adjustable.
• Why should I get the Deluxe instead of the Standard capo?
The main difference is material. The Deluxe is made of stainless steel, while the Standard is made of brass and nickel plated. Both are high quality materials. Stainless is harder, so it's more resistant to nicks and scratches, and it has no plating. And for those who prefer to buy strictly US products, the Deluxe is one of our models that is made entirely in the USA.
• How many different models and styles do Shubb Capos come in, and what are the differences?
The "model" refers to what neck shape the capo fits (1, 2, 3 etc.), and the "style" refers to its finish, material, color, etc. (deluxe, Lite, Capo Noir, etc.).
Here is a chart showing all the models and styles.
• What is the correct way to apply the capo, from the top (bass side) or bottom (treble side)?
Either is correct. Users seem to be about equally divided, even among the top players.

• Will the curve of the capo match the radius of my fretboard?
Yes, it will. Although there is some variation in fretboard radii, the curve of the Shubb capo is a good fit for all of them.
