Crafted of solid stainless steel to resist nicks and scratches,
this capo will look just as beautiful years from now as it does today.
When the Shubb Capo was first introduced in 1980, capos were elevated to a whole new level. In 1998 the Shubb Deluxe pushed the envelope again. Many people thought that the original Shubb could not be improved, but with the Deluxe we introduced upgrades in materials, design, geometry and ergonomics. It became the flagship product of our line. Still made in our shop in Missouri and assembled by our crew in California, as it always has been.
Why should I get the Deluxe instead of the Standard capo?
The main difference is material. The Deluxe is made of stainless steel, while the Standard is made of brass and nickel plated. Both are high quality materials. Stainless is harder, so it's more resistant to nicks and scratches, and it has no plating. And for those who prefer to buy strictly US products, the Deluxe is one of our models that is made entirely in the USA.
