Does It's Job! Does It Well! Capos Aren't Just For Beginners, They Can Be Used To Get Great Tone That You Can't Get Without A Capo. I've Also Found It Handy To Stick My Slide On. Really, Just A Great Capo. Remember, You're Never Too Good For A Capo!
Simply the best capo out there. I've tried them all. Broke half of them. Got frustrated over most of them. This one is not only stylish, it's fast, it's accurate, it's versatile.
I feel like every guitarist should own one of these. Listening to The Smiths a lot, my whole life, it was only a matter of time that I would try playing their songs once I got really into playing guitar. This has proven to be essential for covering Johnny Marr's riffs...and has become a mainstay for me in writing and experimenting. Try one, you'll love it!
I have three of these bad boys as well as four other brands of capos. Needless to say, I've tried a lot of capos out. The reason I have three of the Kysers is because I have found them to be my favorite. Their grip is just tight enough to consistently change the pitch of my guitar, but not so tight that it squeezes the life out of my neck. I have played with several capos that are too weak to really get the job done and suffer from buzzing or tuning issues. The Kyser just simply avoids these issues and thus I have three of them to save time when switching between guitars. A great capo!
I've heard people say it looks attractive, but I disagree. I've also heard folks say it works really well, but I have found my strings to be out of tune more often than with other capos. I would like to think it has nothing to do with user error, since I have been successful with other capos ... not saying this one doesn't work but you gotta check your tuning every time you use it without fail. Also, not a bad thing, but I feel the spring is a little harder to squeeze than some other brands.
