Original Shubb capo, plain brass. A natural for anyone who favors a retro look.
For 12-string guitar or any steel string guitar with a wide neck.
A few years ago we upgraded the original nickel plated Shubb capo, giving it the roller design, and a more streamlined look and feel. But whenever you change something, some people will prefer the original. So for those who still want the “classic” — the original Shubb capo as it has been for over 40 years — we are continuing to make the ORIGINAL Shubb capo available in plain brass.
Plain, unplated brass will darken in time. For those of us who appreciate brass, we prefer this look; reminiscent of an old microscope, or a piece of gear from a sailing ship. But if you like your brass to shine, it can be polished with a cloth and most any commercial metal polish.
