Past Masters

They're gone, but their music lives on. And when their music called for a capo, their choice was Shubb.

About our artists program

We've never paid anyone to endorse our products because:

A) We can't afford it.    
B) We don't approve of it.    
C) We don't need to.    
D) It's just not how it's done


All of the above. Many players are so satisfied with our capos that they are happy to be associated with them. In fact, many times players have contacted us, simply asking permission to say that they endorse our capos. Of course, we say yes. Once a connection is made, we take pleasure in standing behind our artists in whatever way we can.

Most of the best players use Shubb Capos, as you can see by the names on this page. All of these artists have enthusiastically given us their permission to use their name and image, and they all use Shubb capos exclusively, by their own choice.

Many other top artists not listed here also use Shubb Capos, but we have not yet made contact with them to get permission. When it comes to endorsements in the music business, it is not like the larger world of advertising. Unlike sports stars or pop idols who receive a fortune from big companies to pretend that they prefer one brand of soda pop or underwear, professional musicians will only use the stuff they want to use. And most of the companies that make the stuff they use (our company, for one) don't have a spare fortune to throw at them for endorsements. They wouldn't take it, anyway. So when you see someone using a Shubb capo, I guarantee you it's because that is their choice.


 

Should you be included in our artist program?

• Do you make your living playing or teaching music?
• Do you use a Shubb Capo exclusively, and no other?
• Would you be a sincere and positive spokesperson for our capos and our company?

If you would like us to consider including you in our artist program, email some information about yourself including link(s) to video(s). Or snailmail us a CD and promo pack.

If you are already in our artist program and have any questions or needs, you are invited to contact:

Gary Mobley | gary@shubb.com
Raul Reynoso | raul@shubb.com
both at 707-843-4068
