SAY "PEACE" WITH THE NEW KYSER TIE-DYE QUICK-CHANGE

Traditional methods of tie-dye were formed in India, Japan and Africa as early as the sixth century. However, in the 1960's, tie-dye was brought to America through the hippie movement. Hippies wanted a way to escape from the strick social norm of the 1950's, and tie-dye was just one way of expressing their free-spirited nature. After clothing designers started using tie-dye patterns in their designs, and music stars such as Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix started wearing it, tie-dye became a bandwagon the youth generation jumped on. This design is just as popular today with all generatoins as it was with the youth of the 1960's. Tie-dye says "freedom", "peace", "music", "harmony" and "beauty". Now you can let your Quick-Change capo express these values for you while knowing the quality of this accessory will be second to none. The Kyse® Tie-Dye Quick-Change® -- guaranteed for life.

MILTON KYSER 1933-2014

2 Corinthians 5:8 "We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord."

At 6 pm on January 23rd, 2014 Milton Kyser peacefully passed away with loving family members praying at his side.  After 80 awe-inspiring years on this earth, Milton has gone home. In July 2013, the entire Music Industry community helped wish Milton a Happy 80th Birthday in person at a Summer NAMM All-Star Gala in Nashville, TN. Up until very recently, Milton would go to the Kyser manufacturing facility and also the distribution center each and every work day.  It's what he loved to do. It was his life. He was so very proud of his business.
“If I'm not working, I don't know what else to do. My work is my hobby and it makes me happy." - Milton Kyser. 
From an elderly person's health perspective, the past several months have been challenging for Milton. Although his health wouldn't allow him to move about freely, visit the job sites, and check on production, he remained in good spirits and always made efforts to connect with the loved ones who surrounded him. 
We, as a company, are so incredibly grateful for Milton's ingenuity, creativity, and passion for life, love, family and his musical products. 
Kyser is honored to continue to be a part of and also to grow Milton's legacy in an industry which he truly loved. 
Our continuing mission is to make the best quality musical products we can -- right here in the USA -- products Milton Kyser would be proud of. 
God bless, 
Kyser Musical Products

hAPPY BIRTHDAY MILTON!

More than 30 years ago, Milton Kyser made his first guitar capo in his garage workshop in Texas. Today, he turns 80 years old and the company he founded sells almost 1,000,000 capos yearly, in over fifty countries around the world. Kyser® is the only capo that's still made entirely by hand, right here in the United States. While we know you won’t be online today, we want to wish you a Happy 80th birthday, Mr. Kyser. We're proud to know you.                                                                               

And here's another interesting thing -- Mr. Kyser's dream didn't even get started until he was 46 years old.
Relax. Enjoy the music.
