I purchased this Kyser 12 string Capo since the 6 string Capo (also Kyser) really didn't get the job done to my satisfaction. This Capo was inexpensive to purchase but rich in results. A new Capo is something that I don't spend a lot of time dwelling on. One day I was playing my 12 string acoustic and did not like the tone from the low E string with the 6 string Capo. Now that I have this new KYSER 12 string Capo my sound has improved to a degree I did not expect. I highly recommend this important, must have tool. Enjoy!
