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.

        This capo works well on the mandolin. Easy to use and enough grip to work on any fret for a clean sound. Who can ask for anything more ?

              Comments about Kyser Banjo/Mandolin Capo:

              This capo didn't work on my Applause mandolin. The E string buzzed on the 2 and 3 fret. Using my thumb and index finger, I pushed the capo down at that location and was able to stop the buzzing. I think the capo spring just wasn't strong enough for this particular mandolin. I ordered a Paige brand and will comment on it when possible.

                  There is not a lot of room for a capo on a uke, but this one fits the bill. The slender width leaves you ample room on the narrow frets and allows you room to get around it.

                    Comments about Kyser Banjo/Mandolin Capo:

                    It's a "universal" capo for smaller-necked instruments such as ukelele, banjo and mandolin. It works fine on my mandolin, a little wide but no big deal. I use it primarily to adjust tuning while playing with recordings (I'm a guitarist and am still learning my mandolin chords). It gets the job done! Thanks for offering.

                        Works well on a uke, although it is a little high to finger over. The narrow frets on my Eleuke make it a little tricker but I like this better than the other ones I've used.
