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 bought this for an Ibanez 12-String. Every time I put this capo on my guitar, I have to re-tune the strings. It has WAY too much tension to keep the same pitch on the strings. I can not say anything about how it performs on other 12-string guitars, but it does not work well for the Ibanez-12. Now, you can always put it on and then re-tune and take it off and re-tune. But who likes that hassle right? Especially when you need a quick change! I takes a little longer to tune a 12 than it does a 6. Just saying. Of course its durable and performs its job, but just not like you would want it to for the Ibanez.

              I needed a capo dedicated to the 12-string, and so I tried this. It's tight! I like its design and it does work well.

              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.

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

                  What I can say about this capo is that it's generations ahead of the one I used some 40 years ago. Also, instead of dealing with a less than full sound coming from the higher strings of my 12-string, this capo placed on the 2nd fret brought out their sound without diminishing any from the lower octave strings. The overall sound of my Seagull 12-string took a leap forward from an already comparable quality of sound to other, much more expensive makes and models. Thanks to all the people who supplied the decision making information leading me to the purchase of this particular capo for 12 string!

                        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...
