The new Shubb “Royale” Capo in Gold titanium finish will shine like gold for many, many years. This capo is to suit a 12-string guitar, or any steel string guitar with a wide fretboard. It is 2.25″ wide and curved for a radiused fretboard.
Gold plating is an elegant and desirable finish for instruments and accessories. But while gold is undeniably beautiful, it is not at all durable; it will wear off far too easily and quickly. And it is famously expensive. But now we have researched a high-tech finishing technique that utilizes titanium to produce a capo that has all the beauty of real gold, but is as durable as any metal finish you will ever find.
The choice of millions of musicians worldwide, now upgraded to feature the roller design and contoured lever.
When the Shubb capo was first introduced more than 30 years ago guitarists throughout the world fell in love with it. They’re still in love with it today. We’ve given it a few tweaks through the years, but its basic mechanical principle remains the same: a unique over-center locking mechanism that provides an unrivalled combination of power, speed, accuracy and ease of use. One smooth flip of the lever locks it securely in place, and removes it just as quickly.
And the Shubb capo is BY FAR the best at not creating tuning problems. Its soft, resilient rubber is specially designed to work just like a fingertip, so it doesn’t bend the strings over the frets. Its closing action is just like your hand, so it doesn’t pull the string off center. As a result, no re-tuning is necessary!
Capos continue to come and go, but the fact remains for the guitarist who is serious about quality and intonation …nothing but a Shubb will do.
