Shubb Capos are the world’s leading brand of capos and were designed by musicians for musicicans. The C5 is the Original banjo capo and has a polished nickel finish. The over-center cam action and a proprietary rubber sleeve, applies exactly the right amount of pressure to hold the strings, assuring proper intonation every time. All done with the flick of a lever.
Shubb Capos work on an 'over-center' locking principle. If you've used one, you know the feeling. As you close the capo onto the neck, it passes through a point of greatest resistance (the center), and then relaxes somewhat into its locked position. All Shubb Capos are designed to provide just the right amount of pressure applied in the closed position for the truest tone.
