Shubb C7B Partial-Kapodaster
I was introduced to the concept of partial capoing many years ago by the great acoustic guitarist Harvey Reid and by Jeff Hickey, who developed the Third Hand capo (an elastic capo designed exclusively for partial capoing). These guys both were users of Shubb capos for "regular" capoing, but were WAY into the possibilities of partial capoing. In addition to using a Third Hand, I noticed that Harvey had modified one of his Shubb capos by cutting it down so that it skipped the outside string and covered only the next three. He got some really wonderful sounds with this partial capo. Shortly thereafter I saw Chris Proctor using one he had customized, evidently inspired by Harvey.
A few years later I met Adrian Legg, who was introduced to me by John Pearse as "the best guitar player in Europe," which is no exaggeration. I noticed that he, too, was using a sawed-off Shubb capo quite a lot, as an integral part of his amazing guitar style.
Adrian, Harvey, Chris, and Jeff had urged me for quite some time to put an end to this wanton mutilation of Shubb capos, and to actually make one ourselves that would do the job. In 1995 we introduced our partial capo, and it has been growing in popularity ever since.
Seit 1980 erstellt der Kapodaster von Shubb die Norm, nach der sich alle anderen richten müssen. Kapodaster von Shubb sind die erste Wahl - und häufig die einzige - von Tausenden von Musikern weltweit. Sobald ein ernsthafter Gitarrist den Kapodaster von Shubb entdeckt hat, läßt er sich auf keinen anderen mehr ein.
Die patentierte Verriegelung bietet eine unübertroffene Kombination von Kraft, Geschwindigkeit, Genauigkeit und müheloser Benutzbarkeit. Darüber hinaus verursacht der Kapodaster von Shubb keine Probleme beim Stimmen. Der Spezialgummi funktioniert genau wie eine Fingerspitze und biegt die Saiten nicht über die Bünde. Daher ist kein Nachstimmen erforderlich.
