Shubb C1 Royale Steel String Guitar Capo in Paua Pearl Finish
Our Paua Pearl capo uses the same durable titanium process as our other Capo Royale models, so its color-shifting beauty will last practically forever. And its randomly occurring color patterns make each capo unique.
Pāua is the Maori (native New Zealand) name for a species of abalone whose shells are the most beautiful and colorful. Luthiers often use Pāua shell for the inlays on their most special guitars. Fine jewelry crafted from the shells are known as Pāua Pearls. When we came up with this new finish, its dazzling iridescence reminded us of paua pearls, and so that became its name. It uses the same durable titanium process as our other Capo Royale models, so its eye-popping, color-shifting beauty will last practically forever. And like the Pāua shell itself, no two are exactly alike. The patterns of color occur randomly, so no one else’s Pāua Pearl capo will look exactly like yours!.
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 unrivaled 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.
