Purchased a C2B Shubb Capo

C2B shubb brass capo
 Shubb clamping action    We purchased a C2B shubb brass capo on Amazon for $16.19.  We want to use it to play the A-D-E chords I am learning so I can have access to more songs using the same chord shapes I already know.  We picked it as it is real brass and and is shaped for 2.25 inches wide flat fretboards as on our classical guitar.  It is solid unplated natural brass which will develop a natural brass patina with use.  Its tightness is adjustable so its over center clamps are on just enough to play cleanly and yet to tight to stretch the nylon strings.  It is also designed so as not to pull the strings off center when clamping.

    1.4 ounces. 4 x 0.3 x 2 inches.  4.8 stars with 45 reviews on 1.4 ounces.  4 x 0.3 x 2 inches.  4.8 stars with 45 reviews on Amazon.  Machined and hand assembled in Missouri. 

    I look forward to learning to use the capo when I receive it. It will be my first capo for my new guitar hobby.
