We know that there are different models in the market, how to choose one that fit correctly to the Ukulele Arm? Can i use a guitar one? Is it possible for a bonnet to damage the arm of my instrument?
Many people have written to us to ask about the Capo or Capotraste, one of the artifacts that help the Ukulelists to play in different scales and tesuras.
An application can be transport a hue without having to change the shape of the chords. For example, you know a song that has the chords C major and F major. However, for whatever reason you want to play it on Me and La, because you just have to place the bonnet on the fourth fret and that's it; you play the song without having to make the chord of the nut.
Sometimes the Hoods can damage the arm of our instrument if they do not have a soft coating that insulates the metal from the wood, some are made of elastic material and with metal buckles that can tear the wood or cause grooves in the fretboard, something that nobody wants for their Ukulele.
In the Ukulelería we have the original Kala brand bonnet which is of clip type, one of the most recommended ways for all types of Ukulele since it is very simple to use and adjust to the frets of our precious instrument, this bonnet was specially designed for the Ukuleles of this brand, but it is compatible with any Ukulele and Mandolin, It is also a small size ideal for transporting in the cover of your Uku.
However, there are some brave people who do not have a professional one and make their own with feathers and garters, something that can work but is difficult to adjust and can become uncomfortable when executing the tones in the air.
Some buy one for guitar and when adjusting do not create pressure on the strings or hang on the arm since the thickness of the arm is very different.
When choosing, we recommend that you have your instrument at hand and make it sound to Verify that you press the strings properly.
We hope this information is useful to choose well and remember friends to use the bonnet responsibly. ;)
