The Shubb Lite is made of aluminum. It weighs less than one ounce. Is a Lightweight capo for you? Maybe. Some people associate a certain amount of heft with quality, while many others feel that a capo should be as light as possible.
Neither opinion is right or wrong; it’s a matter of choice. If a lighter weight capo is to your liking, and that of your instrument, then the Shubb Lite is definitely the capo for you!
Less than half the weight of other Shubb capos, the L1 is best suited for a steel string guitar with relatively low action and light to medium strings.
