This year we're participating in more shows, festivals, and various events than ever. Gary will go from Americanafest on a week-long trip visiting music stores. Raul will return from Winfield this week, and IBMA is coming right up. A whirlwind year for us; we'll try to catch up with posting some pictures in the next couple of weeks.

Our showcase at Folk Alliance, the Capocabana, was jumping each night. Although the light was a bit low for photography, we got a few pics anyway. Check out our gallery.

The John Jorgenson Quintet was incredible at our Friday night event at the NAMM show.

We recently introduced our wider version of th FineTune Capo. the model F3. (its opening measures 2-3/16"), and also made replacement sleeves for the FineTune capos available online..

Raul Reynoso has come on board full time with Shubb Capos. He's been with us at the NAMM show for many years, but now he has relocated to Northern California, and has joined Gary and myself in customer/artist relations, sales, and promotions. Welcome to the team, Raul.
