Unlike other Dobro capos that attach only to the strings, the Shubb clamps solidly to the neck to provide great tone. It uses the same patented locking action of our Shubb guitar capo, and it aligns by touching the fret, not by eye, making it fast and accurate.
Call it what you will: Dobro®, Resophonic® or resonator guitar, square-neck guitar, some used to call it a hound dog guitar. If your striung action is at least 3/8" - too high to fret with your fingers, and you play with a bar - this is the right capo.
This capo is designed to work on instruments that are set up to play with a bar, with high string action (3/8" – 1/2" above the fretboard).
It is not for use on Weissenborn style guitars with hollow necks, because their necks are too deep and too fragile.
