Information about Shubb Partial Capo (C8b) Drop-D Tuning
Special Partial Capo
Skips the bass string and capos the other 5.
Skips the sixth string (low E) and covers the other five, emulating a drop-D tuning.
In response to requests, Shubb introduced this capo at the 2004 Winter NAMM show. Applied from above the neck (from the bass side), it cleanly skips the bass string and centers solidly on the neck while capoing the other five strings. While it is possible to accomplish the same thing on many necks using our one of our regular capos, they need to be applied from the treble side, off-center to avoid the bass string. Many users prefer to apply the capo from the bass side. This capo is designed to be applied from the bass side, with a step built in to skip over the bass E string, and it centers properly for improved stability.
The Shubb Capo is designed to reduce tuning problems.
- It presses the strings exactly like your fingertips
- It closes onto the neck just like your hand
- Its pressure is totally adjustable
The result : no retuning is necessary.
Precisely machined and carefully hand assembled, a Shubb capo is manufactured without compromise.
Its ingenious design enables a patented locking action which provides an unrivalled combination of power, speed, accuracy and ease of use. Its soft, resilient rubber is specially designed to work just like a fingertip.
It is the first choice, and often the only choice of millions of musicians worldwide.
