I received another Meideal capo today. This time is a Ukulele model. It is different from the previous Ukulele model I have from Meideal.

The previous model MC10U, was a rounfed  Zinc alloy, with light grey fretboard and neck pads, printed axle cover, hollowed levers and no curve in spring. I noted that the spring looked ready to leave the capo.

The new one, Model MC20U, in Aluminum alloy with squared edges, black fretboard and neck pads and a different design in the spring holder including a plastic insert to induce a curve in the coil spring. I assume this change is to address the precarious look of the spring mount in the older model.

It is much lighter, but not as comfortable to hold to the square edges.

I have one more Meideal coming, their Classical Capo.

Capo Count: 31, Expected: 3

I need help :)
