I got a Uke as a present and wanted to be able to quickly change keys for certain songs. My MF rep suggested using a Kyser Banjo/Mandolin capo, as it was designed to fit thin,narrow fretboard applications - perfect for a Uke, though not marketed that way ordinarily. I got the Kyser, put it on my Uke and it was PERFECT! No string buzzing, no problems. Highly recommend it for Uke use!

This capo achieves the goal immediately, however the extreme pressure it exerts on the neck/frets, may cause pitting of the frets on instruments with softer frets. I should have bought the Shubb but was feeling cheap the day I ordered this. Still, this is a very effective product.
I would only recommend this if you have hardened stainless steel frets.

      great capo

      By ukeman

      Comments about Kyser Banjo/Mandolin Capo:

      I have used it on a tenor uke (w/ a radiused fretboard) and it works great. It is light, easy to use, and is small enough to keep out of the way.

        Just ok on Loar acoustic. No good on Fender electric.
        Difficult to use-will stick with Shubbs, much more positive.

          Comments about Kyser Banjo/Mandolin Capo:

          5th banjo capo I've tried. It's faster to move around than the Shubb, but the tension isn't adjustable so there are intonation issues. It's alright, but my search continues. It DOES work pretty well on a mandolin.

            This capo works the way I need it to on my Epiphone Mandolin. It takes a little jiggling to have it work properly at every fret, but functions fine once it is set. Like most, if not all, capos one must check tuning.

              Does not fit radiused fingerboards

              By Rod-WHBW.

              from Evans, GA

              Comments about Kyser Banjo/Mandolin Capo:

              I ordered this capo with my new Michael Kelly mandolin. I use Kyser capos when playing guitar, and love them. However, unlike the guitar capos, the mandolin capo is completely flat/straight and does not follow the curvature of the fingerboard. As a result, the E and G strings of the mandolin are not pressed firmly against the frets, and they sometimes buzz. Also, it's quite wide for a mandolin neck--I guess it's really designed as a banjo capo. I may try to do surgery on mine to shorten it and contour it to match the fingerboard.

              Comments about Kyser Banjo/Mandolin Capo:

              I bought one of these to use on a ukulele for a church service. Now I have 2 of them, one for my electric sopano uke and one for my acoustic baritone uke, and I want to get another pair for my mandolin and banjo. This capo is just like its big brother the kyser quick-change, which I also love for guitars.

              Comments about Kyser Banjo/Mandolin Capo:

              I have been using it for a bit on my mandolin, and now there is a cut from the the spring. Well, it does do it's job nicely, I don't know if it's from my mandolin or the capo but from the 6th fret up it has it a more of a 'Bling-Blang' sound. The capo doesn't seem to be strong enough to knock it off tune to be a noticible difference. If your not careful the capo can take the strings off the side of the neck. Works fine if you don't need to use it all the often.

              It's a capo, don't know how in depth one can get. I got this for easibility really. I got sick of switching my guitar capo back and forth. This is much more attractive than a guitar capo on the banjo and it works perfect on my friend's mandolin too. Get it!

              Comments about Kyser Banjo/Mandolin Capo:

              It gets the job done, but if I was going to use it a lot, I would probably try other brands/
              Overall it does the job. The way it opens is different from my guitar capo and therefore its a bit awkward to use it.
              Seems a little fragile; most likely because its a guitar capo on a smaller scale. It will be interesting to see if it holds up over the long haul.
              The price seems a bit high.
