Shubb logo and image.jpgFor more than forty years the name of Shubb has been synonymous with intelligent design and quality manufacturing. With more than five million capos sold, the Shubb Capo is the first choice... often the ONLY choice... of discerning musicians worldwide.

Rick Shubb began crafting capos in 1974 while he was working as a professional banjo player, aRick_0209_72.jpgnd was unsatisfied with the options for capoing the banjo’s fifth string. Together with his student at the time, the machinist Dave Coontz, Rick created the first batch of Shubb banjo capos. Shortly thereafter, Rick and Dave created their first guitar capo, which quickly gained the attention of players and retailers.

The original Shubb design remains among the most popular guitar capos, and Shubb has added partial capos, light-weight designs, banjo and ukulele capos, and the new Fine Tune Capo to its lineup. No matter which Shubb product you use, you’re getting the best of Rick’s 40+ years of absolute dedication to meeting the needs of musicians.
