"For what I do, that capo is perfect. For my band, we’re a live rock ‘n’ roll band. Kyser capos are the easiest that I’ve found to do what I need to do. I’ve been a fan of those capos since I started playing. I don’t even know how many years! They get the job done." - Langhorne Slim in an interview with Guitar World.more
In this performance, Stuart had been using a Kyser capo for acoustic songs.
mainly got this as it was free for the guitar bundle and also its very functional and stylish, very solid construction and doesn't hurt the guitar one bit thanks to the rubber parts, the capo works great on 12 inch radius fret boards which most acoustics have anyway, you dont need an adjustable tension capo. the shop didnt have black so i went for black chrome which is sort of aged and battered, with the edges of the capo having a bare metal look whilst the flat parts are a worn aged black, very nice. springs a bit stiff but al least all the parts are replaceable and should last all your life (if unabused)
I know the whole world uses this one and once it sits right, it works fine. So maybe it's just me, but does anybody else have problems placing it really straight on the fret from a playing perspective? Most of the time it seems a bit odd.
I play in a lot of different keys with my songs, and a lot of those I end up using capos for. I'm a BIG capo user. Many people complain about the accuracy of tuning when using these, and you know they may be right, but many listeners wouldn't even be able to tell. It's SO easy and simple to use and thats why I love it.
