the Shubb Capo for Dobro*
and other brands of resophonic guitar


This is the best capo ever put on a resophonic guitar.

It is NOT for use on Weissenborn style guitars with hollow necks, because their necks are too deep and too fragile.


Unlike other Dobro capos that attach only to the strings, the Shubb clamps solidly to the neck to provide great tone. It uses the same patented locking action of our Shubb guitar capo, and it aligns by touching the fret, not by eye, making it fast and accurate.

*"Dobro" is a registered trademark of the Gibson company.
This capo was designed with the cooperation of the Gibson company to fit on Dobro brand guitars. For about a year it was packaged with the Dobro logo, and marketed by both ourselves and by Gibson. In addition to fitting Dobro brand guitars, it fits most guitars that are commonly referred to (generically) as "dobros" — as long as they are set up to play with a bar, with high string action (3/8" – 1/2" above the fretboard).
