C8b - Partial capo for steel-string guitars (acoustic and E-guitars)
The C8b skips the 6th string (low E) and covers the other 5, emulating a drop-D tuning. Attention: partial capoing is not the same as open tuning.
Introduced in 1980, the original Shubb Capo is the choice for musicians worldwide. A patented locking action provides an unrivalled 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. With the Shubb capo areno tuning problems . Its soft, resilient rubber 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.
