 Capo

A capo is used to transpose the pitch of a song. For example, if you put your capo on the 2nd fret, and play a “C” chord, the pitch is actually that of a “D” chord without the capo. Why would you use a capo? It’s primarily used to effortlessly transpose the pitch of a sing while playing the original chords. For example, if you’re a singer and the song you’re playing is in a key too low for your singing range, add a capo to the 2nd or 3rd fret and ta-da; The song is now in a higher key that fits your vocal range! Here’s our ukulele capo recommendation: Neewer Brown Single-handed Specially Designed For Ukulele Banjo Mandolin Capo

Ukulele Accessories

A Capo for ukulele and guitars

Case
Yes, every ukulele deserves a case for protection, and if you don’t have one it should be one of your first ukulele accessories. It doesn’t necessarily need to be a hard case that costs more than your ukulele did in the first place. To provide the necessary protection, here’s our recommendation of a great soft case that will do the job wonderfully! Here’s a great soft-sided case that will protect your ukulele: HOT SEAL Waterproof 20MM Classic Super Thick Durable Colorful Ukulele Case Bag with Large Storage (26in, Coffee)
