Hey I use a capo for classical guitar if I ever need a capo for my uke. Also, you could get a mini-capo if you search for a mandolin or banjo capo. Those are nice a small and are perfect sized for uke.

haha definitely. When you can't find it anywhere else, don't forget to check on ebay. It'll probably be cheaper too.

google is your friend. search for "ukulele capo" and the very first link shows one for less than four dollars.

I agree, any banjo one does the trick and is the perfect width. Schubb and Dunlop (Trigger) make nice ones. Matt, you know where to find me to get one, not on eBay :)

You can also make a home made capo with an old pencil and a few rubber bands. Use the rubber bands to adjust the tension as needed to barre the frets.

Takes a bit of tinkering- but it's an inexpensive alternative.

Here's mine:

Thanks, guys.

And I forgot to say before, but if it's not holding the strings down right just twirl the pencil around. It works better if you use an edge rather than a side.

Look for a Jim Dunlop Banjo Capo on the internet. I have one and it's perfect.

Nothing will happen if you use your guitar capo on your ukulele. Go for it. :D

I use a banjo capo similar to the one pictured below and available online as well as your local music stores.
