I bought this capo with my 1996 Martin D12-1 (12-string). The ability to quickly move this capo with only one hand is almost a must when I play on stage, whether in between songs or modulating keys during a song!

The spring weakened only within this past month such that some of the strings would not stop buzzing. I bent the spring back slightly to restore the tension needed.

I recently acquired a Takamine 12-string guitar. I tested a Kyser 12-string capo on a Tak 12-string exactly like mine at a local music store. The capo completely failed to press down the thin octave A string and it only worked about 60% on the octave low E string. I had heard and read all the great reviews of this capo. Glad I checked it out before I just went ahead and bought one.

        Comments about Kyser Quick-Change Capo for 12-String Guitar:

        What I especially LOVE about Kyser capos is that the "handles" are above the fretboard instead of under the neck. That means the capo can be placed right ON THE FRET to avoid detuning and still not get in the way of your chording hand! I find it distracting to "knuckle bump" a capo when chording a song...

          Comments about Kyser Quick-Change Capo for 12-String Guitar:

          I had been using other models from Dunlop that claim to work with 6 & 12 strings, yet I could not get them to work with any of my 12-string guitars (Fender, Breedlove and Takamine). I decided to give this capo a try and ... why did I wait this long???
          Easy to set up; it does actuates all 12 strings; easy to remove and clip back on the guitar head.

          It really does what it claims!!! A great buy and a must if you play 12-string guitars!

            This capo has a strong spring, great shape and puts the strings DOWN like you would expect a capo built for a 12 string acoustic guitar to do. I capo to fret 5 for several songs I perform. It works flawlessly. No Ringing on frets or buzzing. Great product for the serious 12 string player!

              Very well made. Holds tune and fits fret board and neck. I use it on a Martin D 12-20. Great tone,response and sustain.Install is two handed. Some interference for some chord positions.

                  This 12-string guitar capo is also used for a 6-string guitar as well as a 12-string guitar, holding a tight quality tuning anywhere up the neck of the instrument. I have used Keyser tuners for years on mandolins & guitars, pleased with the long life and durability. THANKS!

                      I've been playing guitar and using capos for more than 50 years. One of these is in each guitar case - the 12 works on a 6-string too, although a bit heavier on clamping onto the strings.

                      The only other capo I've kept for any length of time is my very first, a rosewood flamenco capo for nylon strings that's lasted over 50 years.

                        After the capo came in the mail I grabbed my 12 string and got to work.This capo reaches across the fretboard with no problem. With a regular capo you have to jockey for position to cover 1st strings completely.As a result sometimes you would have issues with maintaining sustain.Kyser puts out a well built quality product.

                                  I'm already a big fan of Kyser Quick-Change capos in all 6-string applications, but it indeed requires a special capo to get enough tension over the 12-string neck. Well, this puppy has the grip of death! Problem solved -- clean and clear open ringing as expected.

                                    I bought this because none of the capos I have for my 6 stings worked very well on my Danelecrto 12 string. This capo does the trick. It's wide enough and has a very tight spring holds the strings down very well .. no buzz ..

                                                  I have been using a 6 string Capo with limited success. Tried buying locally but they never got the item in stock. Musicians Friend came through quickly and reasonably priced
