April 17: near the end of this month Gary and Raul are both heading out to exhibit at festivals. Gary will be at the Tacoma Guitar Festival in Washington State, and Raul will be at Merelefest in NC. If either of these is close to you, stop by and say hello, and check out our latest model: the eye-popping, engraved capo.

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.
jj The whole NAMM show was quite a whirlwind; we're just back from Anaheim with barely time to catch our breath and prepare for Folk Alliance.

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.

We've exhibited at more shows this year than ever before, and we're still cathcing up with sorting out pictures and posting to the Gallery. We expect to have some new stuff posted soon.

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.
