The Shubb Lite lightweight aluminum capo is for you if you're into removing mass and reducing the weight of your 12-string guitar.

What makes the lightweight Shubb capo so special? For one thing it has an ingenious design: its patented locking action provides unrivaled power, speed, accuracy, and ease of use. One smooth flip of the lever locks the Shubb Lite capo securely in place and removes it just as quickly.

Additionally, the Shubb capo doesn't create tuning problems. Its soft, resilient rubber is specially designed to work just like a fingertip, so the capo doesn't bend the strings over the frets. Its closing action is just like your hand, so the Lite capo doesn't pull the string off center. As a result, no retuning is necessary!

Is a lightweight capo for you? Maybe, or maybe not. Some people associate a certain amount of heft with quality, and feel that weight is necessary to properly do the job. If that describes you, then a lightweight capo isn't your style. But for years, Shubb has been aware of another school of thought wherein guitarists have been removing mass from their Shubb capos in an attempt to reduce their weight.

One thing is certain: if you often carry your capo around in your pocket, your trousers will prefer the Shubb Lite! The Shubb Lite capo for nylon-string guitars is made from aerospace-quality aluminum and is nickel plated. It weighs less than one ounce.

Since 1980, Shubb capos have set the standard against which all others can be measured. Shubb capos are the first choice of more than a million musicians worldwide. Serious guitarists will settle for no less.

Precisely machined and carefully hand assembled, the Shubb Lite capo is manufactured without compromise. Snapping it solidly onto a guitar neck and then removing it will instantly confirm the capo's reputation of excellence.

Doesn't Work

By Zachary

from Burlington NJ

Simply put. I bought this for my 12-string because it is supposedly made for 12 string and wide neck guitars. It is very small so I had my doubts before I even tried it out. I was right. It's not strong enough to hold all 12 strings. Some strings were muted, others buzzed. Don't buy this for a 12-string.

Nonretuning, Trouser Pleasing, Easy to Use Capo!

By Jake Marohn

from Plymouth, Indiana

This capo had to be made in heaven. For those of us who use capo's, we're aware of the retuning problem, what happens when your strings get pressed down really hard by the strength of the capo which causes them to go out of wack. Not anymore! This capo is like your finger tip, although it clamps on strudily, its not overpoweringly strong. It uses very soft rubber and an ingenius clamp design, which allows this capo to be installed and removed very easily, just by the pull of a lever. It is very lightweight, which makes it a perfect pocket pal. And its for twelve string guitars! It may seem a little pricey, but quality is always more important when it comes to music. I would recommend this to anyone who has a 12 string guitar!
