Capos – When It’s Just Not Written in the Right Key

Sometimes you just don’t feel like playing that song in D-flat minor. Sometimes you need a capo so you can play normal chords and still be in tune with everyone else. There are a couple of capos that are rated extremely highly by their owners that I’ll tell you about here.

Both of these capos should work just fine on these stringed instruments.

  • 6-string guitar
  • Banjo
  • Mandolin
  • Ukulele

That said, they should work equally well on any stringed instrument with a suitable neck. If the neck of your instrument is similar enough to one of those listed above, you can get either of these capos and attach them to your strings.

TANMUS 3-in-1 Capo, Plus 4 Picks

The TANMUS guitar capo comes in these colors or finishes.

  • Black
  • Silver
  • Bronze
  • Metallic Silver
  • Wood Grain

You can also get a 2-pack in these combinations of colors.

  • Black and Bronze
  • Black and Wood Grain

What makes this a 3-in-1 device is that it’s a combo capo, guitar pin puller, and pick holder – a very handy gadget indeed! The lower end of one of the “handles” is the pin puller. There’s a slot in the upper section of the capo where you can stick a pick.

The 4 picks you get as a sort of bonus come in 3 thicknesses. Two are 0.46mm (light), one is 0.71mm (medium), and the last is 0.96mm (heavy).

The bonus here is a pack of five 0.71mm (medium) celluloid picks.
