Traditional guitar capos are too large for ukuleles. That’s why Kala — the uke company — has created a capo made especially for ukes. This capo is rugged, easy to use, and looks great. Its soft silicone pads safeguard your instrument against scratches.
Looking to add some variety to your ukulele’s sound? Try a felt pick. Conventional picks emit a plasticky click on uke strings, but the D’Addario Planet Waves Ukulele Felt Picks give you the warm tones of fingertip playing with greater projection. The elliptical cutout offers enhanced grip and flexibility for fast playing.
There are a variety of types of ukulele strings from various manufacturers. When searching for uke strings for your instrument, make sure that you buy the right string for the right instrument, e.g., tenor, baritone, etc.
