Capo Noir now includes the design features previously available only on our stainless steel models!
• Roller design - smoother action, superior geometry, reduced wear
• Rounded edges - softer to the touch
• Contoured lever - easier to use
For years our most commonly requested combination of features has been "can I get the Shubb capo
in black with the roller?" Well, now you can.
Machined of brass and plated in black chrome, this stunningly beautiful capo will be the choice of
anyone who prefers an elegant and inconspicuous look onstage or off. Perfect for instruments with
black hardware or any dark finished instrument, and a must have for anyone who likes the stealth look!
The roller mechanism equalizes the dropoff across the full range of the capo.
Because the roller head adjusts upward on an arc (as opposed to a straight line) it moves inward toward
the center curve of the middle piece of the capo as it is tightened - so it does not move further past
center when it is set tighter. This maintains a relationship between the moving parts that results in the same,
ideal amount of dropoff at any point within the capo's working range.
So you get the ideal amount of dropoff on a thin neck, on a thick neck, and all those in between...
and on different parts of the same neck.
