OVERVIEW

Keeps you in tune while avoiding any string buzz or excessive force on your uke's neck.

Designed specifically for ukuleles, the NS Ukulele Capo Pro assures buzz-free, in-tune performance at any fret. A micrometer adjustment mechanism allows you to dial in the exact tension needed for clear ringing notes without excessive force in any position on the neck. This greatly reduces the need to retune your ukulele during and after capo use. The sleek aircraft grade aluminum construction can withstand the toughest playing/touring schedule while adding negligible additional weight or obstruction to the instrument.

FEATURES

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Ukulele Capo Pro:

    I needed a capo for my ukuleles and liked the slim, compact design of this model. This capo hugs the neck so there's nothing sticking out above or below to get in the way. It's easy to put on and works great on all size ukuleles. It also works on my mandolin. I liked it so much that I bought the larger model for my guitar. I'm a mountain dulcimer player so I'm used to a screw on type capo. I like being able to adjust the amount of pressure applied to the strings to get the best sound. I highly recommend this capo.

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Ukulele Capo Pro:

    Bying a capo without actually seeing it is risky, but this paid off! If fits my Baritone 'Uke perfectly, is easy to adjust and is much smaller than other's I've tried. It doesn't interfere with playing. The con is very minor. The thumb screw must be loosened to move it but moving isn't done while playing so that isn't a real issue; it just takes a moment more to do so than the larger, spring loaded capos. Love it! Absolutely recommend this capo!

        Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Ukulele Capo Pro:

        I use this D'Addario NS uke capo on my banjos with wider necks. The NS banjo capos are not long enough to grab all the strings. The NS banjo capos are fine for banjos with narrow necks (as is this one). I used Shubb capos for years which are fine and easier to use, except that sometimes my fretting hand bumps them in the middle of a song, and they fall off the neck.

            Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Ukulele Capo Pro:

            Was looking for a small enough capo that it would not get in the way when used. I have been using a guitar capo and it was just to big for my uke. This capo works fine and is small enough that I will use it more often. That said, small means a little more fragile than a hefty guitar capo. It has not been an issue, but I have been very careful until I feel more confident that it will survive my use?

                  I use this product on a soprano ukelele and it works great. I had tried using a standard Kyser guitar capo, but it was far too large and got in the way. I purchased both the NS capo for ukulele and the NS capo for classical guitar, and they both work great. They are lightweight, easy to use, have adjustable tension, and are so small they do not get in the way of playing like other capos often do. I have only had them for less than a month, so I am not sure how well they hold up, but they seem well made and I am very pleased with them so far!

                        Super strong and stays out of the way of your fretting hand. You can reach over it like it's barely there.

                            I use Shubb capos for all my guitars, but I find this Planet Waves NS Ukulele Capo Pro to be the best for (tenor) ukulele. It's nicely machined, compact, light, and effective. It's not instant on, but I quickly learned just how tight to set it for any fret.

                                      Great inexpensive Capo. Fits Gretsch Banjolele with a thick neck and Tenor Ukulele with a thin neck just as good. You can also adjust the tension you put on the instrument.

                                          This is a very nice capo just right for a ukulele. Difficult to find locally; it was easy to find and order on-line from Musician's Friend.

                                              I needed a capo for my five string banjo at the store where I teach. The closestthing they had was this ukulele capo, so I gave it a try and it worked beautifully. Although designed specifically for the uke, it works just fine on a banjo.

                                                Easy on/easy off. Obviously slightly more effort than the spring trigger type capo (I also have a Kyser for my guitar), but has the advantage of being low profile so that if I'm making a chord close to the capo, I'm not dueling with the trigger.
