D’Addario’s Planet Waves division has long offered various capos for guitars, and now the company has expanded its offerings with capos made specifically for banjos, mandolins, and ukuleles. The result of a collaboration with famed instrument designer Ned Steinberger, D’Addario’s new NS Banjo/Mandolin Capo (the capo fits either instrument) and NS Ukulele Pro Capo feature lightweight aircraft-grade aluminum construction, and a precise micrometer adjustment mechanism (as on the NS guitar capo) for easy installation. 

SPECS: Aircraft-grade aluminum construction. Micrometer adjustment clamping mechanism. $14.99 street (NS Banjo/Mandolin Capo), $19.95 street (NS Ukulele Pro Capo).
