The Shubb Fifth String Banjo Capo

This was the product that got it all started for ‘Shubb’ back in 1974, and to this day it’s STILL the only fifth string capo worth putting on a banjo. It operates on a lever principle, not a spring, so it provides sufficient pressure to fret the string without muting the tone. It slides on a slim, dovetailed bar which mounts flush to the neck, making it sturdy and unobtrusive.


We strongly recommend that you have a luthier or repair person install your fifth string capo. Most places that work on instruments can mount it for you in just a few minutes. Or if you are handy with small tools, and not shy about working on your banjo, you could install it yourself. In either case, the Clifford Essex Music Company is not responsible for the quality or consequences of the installation process.

Installation instructions are provided in the package.
