      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.

          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...

                    Use on a 12-string electric; allows each string to ring clearly with no buzz.

                      This capo seems to have a stronger spring to clamp with more strength than the previous model.
                      All 12 strings ring well without any buzzing on my prize '69 Ovation Balladeer. I use 0.11 - 0.56 La Bella Silk & Steel strings (46 years, tuned to concert pitch) which is rare for any Ovation 12 string guitar to be able to handle. The Kyser capo is quick, saving time between songs. I've always used older model chrome Hamilton clamp & screw type capos which never failed. I will be interested to see how this improved Kyser capo retains it's strength over time. For now, I like it.

                                  I play guitar for a Gospel Group, and this is the only capo I use. It keeps all 12 strings held down with no buzz, or deadening of the strings. I do wish they had more color options for the 12 string capo, but that's a con that I can live with. Best 12 string capo out there.
