      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.

        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 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 ?
