The Shubb C8B Partial Capo skips the sixth string (low E) and covers the other five, emulating a drop-D tuning. This capo is made in "Original" style in Plain Brass finish.
Applied from above the neck (from the bass side), it cleanly skips the bass string and centers solidly on the neck while capoing the other five strings. While it is possible to accomplish the same thing on many necks using one of our regular capos, they need to be applied from the treble side, off-center to avoid the bass string. Many users prefer to apply the capo from the bass side. This capo is designed to be applied from the bass side, with a step built in to skip over the bass E string, and it centers properly for improved stability.
