I was wondering if this capo would work for my tenor ukulele?

I do realize that Shubb also makes ukulele capos, but I have a black one for my guitar and I would love to get a matching one for my uke. They don't make them in black for ukulele.

Thanks

It kind of depends on the thickness of your ukulele's neck. Some ukulele necks might be too thin (from back to front) for some banjo capos. However, I am using a banjo capo from G7 for my ukes, and it is fine.

That is the capo I use. Works for all my ukes * with the caveat that my Howlett with it's very thin neck, I add a small piece of a clear plastic tube over the clamp to make it fit better.

* all are flat necks

I also use a Shubb Banjo Capo on my Kala Tenors. It has to be tightened more for the smaller uke neck, but it can be done (enough adjustment available with the capo). I had an extra banjo capo and it allowed me to not have to buy a uke capo. So, it works for me, and with the suggestion in the previous post, I think it woud probably work for you. Good luck.

I like this one. It's a Kyser banjo/mandolin capo....
