Rating and Reviews: Kyser Guitar Capo

Look ma, one hand is all it takes to change fret position for the Kyser Quick Change capo. The padded neck grip also helps protect your guitar.

Back to Product Information
Feature: It gets the job done, all open strings sound good, no damage to the guitar. Works on just about any guitar. Quality: It's really simple, and it's not like a capo goes through much abuse. So it's highly unlikely to break without some sort of major abuse. A sledge hammer would probably break it. Value: $15 isn't much money in the long run for a good capo, but still, it's more expensive than most other capos. Manufacturer Support: Impressive warranty. The Wow Factor: It's a good-looking capo. Mine matches my black Les Paul, but it really clashes with my acoustic Guild. Overall: It's simply a good capo. There are no problems with it. It doesn't harm the guitar or the strings. It doesn't affect sound quality.

"BECAREFUL... Good for SOME guitars... TERRIBLE for others!" submitted December 21, 2006

Music Style: Rock... and everything else... not elmo! not religious!
Back to Product Information
Sound: If it doesn't slip, it sounds great! Holds strings tight! Feature: Strong! Here are the problems... on an acoustic with a flat playing surface, it slips down (in other words pulls the strings up toward the big E string) It will pull the e string completely off the fret board! And of course by that time, you are so out of tune with your other band members it sounds terrible. On mine the short rubber piece that holds under the guitar neck, actually slips off slowly... which is why it pulls the strings up! On an electric, it seems to play well. Ease of Use: Quick! Easy on / easy off! Fast to change frets... Quality: Have had it for at least 4 or 5 years... still VERY STRONG! Value: Fine for practice! Does good on electric... real bad for live performance with acoustic!

VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Feature: It needs less tension on the capo and a LOT more padding to keep from ruining your guitar neck. Quality: It is well made and easy to put on the guitar. Of course if you don't mind the damage it does to the neck of the guitar it would be great. Value: It is over priced, I have now bought a cheap dunlop one that causes no damage. Manufacturer Support: I have not had any contact with them yet but I am sure going to tell them what there capo has done to my guitar. Overall: I would never buy another one of these capo's again. It has ruined the neck of my new Martin guitar. I have indentations everywhere I have clamped this capo on the neck. It is easy to put on (if you are a weight lifter with a stong grip) but that is about all I can say positive about this thing. I am very upset about the damage to my guitar. Be careful and always inspect for damage each time you use it. I did not notice the damage until I had used it up to the 5th fret several times, but then it was to late and the damage is permentaly there.

Back to Product Information
Ease of Use: Admittedly, the Kyser capo rates high in the ĻEase of UseĻ category. You just clamp it down on the guitar. Quality: Itīs made from fairly durable plastic, metal, and rubber. Itīs not going to break any time soon. Value: Definitely not worth it. Shubb capos are much better. The Wow Factor: They look terrible. The handles stick out from the neck and look pretty stupid. Overall: Donīt buy it. It clamps down really hard and can damage the guitar neck, and it throws the guitar way out of tune. Shubb and G7th capos are much better.

Kyser Guitar Capo Customer Review submitted January 14, 2007

Overall: I recentlypurchased a new Taylor 314CE and put on an acoustic 6 string Kyser capo at the first fret for a minutes. WhenI removed it, it had left a very noticable indentation on the back of the neck. So much for the guarantee that it will not damage your guitar. No more Kysers for me. I'm back to my trusty Shubb Capo. KW
