CooL... didn't know they existed. I've used a mandolin capo on my uke.. it works well. However usually I don't employ a capo. It makes me learn more chords... hee hee.. :p

I will upload a YouTube video of it as soon as it arrives so just follow me YouTube the link is below. I've recently lowered the key of my uke to a baritone from a tenor and have a wedding Saturday and no time to work out the key changes hence the volcapo

has anyone thought of introducing a re-entrant string capo like you get on a lot of 5-string banjos?

OMGoodness! I just wrote to them asking for one (I'm getting the standard maple) b/c I'm playing at a wedding, too!

And I just got my uke on 1/24/2011, so yep, capo it is (that E chord is a killer).

That's definitely an interesting design for having that adjustable tension. I'm not sure how practical it is, but the concept is pretty cool, and it is definitely an attention getter.
