Kyser Musical Products, Inc. has created three new Hawaiian-themed Quick-Change capos for ukuleles – Red Hibiscus, Pastel Hibiscus, and Hawaiian Lei. These Kyser Quick-Change capos are specifically made for the small neck and flat fretboard of ukuleles. With a much smaller body, no curved radius, and lighter spring tension than the original Kyser Quick-Change capo, it’s the perfect fit for ukes. Ukulele players can now use a beautiful, island-themed capo to quickly and easily change the pitch of their instrument without changing their chord fingerings.

Made in Texas, USA.

Guaranteed for life.

Kyser® Musical Products, Inc. launches a new Low-Tension Quick-Change® Capo for 6 string guitars. Many modern guitars feature low-action set-ups; where the strings are close to the fret board. Because of this, less spring tension is required to fully hold down all six strings when using a capo. The Kyser Low-Tension Quick-Change Capo has 25% less spring tension than regular Kyser Quick-Change Capos. This easily allows guitarists to obtain the perfect amount of tension when changing keys up and down the neck without worrying about strings being pulled sharp by too much tension. The Kyser Low-Tension Quick-Change® Capo is the same tried and true design that musicians all over the world depend on and now it’s available in a Low-Tension matte blackout finish: matte black color, black spring, black rivet, black boot, dark gray Kyser logo. The Kyser Low-Tension Quick-Change Capo works on both acoustic and electric 6-string guitars. 

Made in Texas, USA.

Kyser Musical Products has created the Kyser Capo App for iOS and Android phones in recognition of a musician’s need for multiple guitar-related functions within one easy-to-use application. This free app has custom capo chord charts which help guitarists transpose chords. Users can choose which guitar fret the capo is on and what chord they want to play, and the Kyser App will show the correct fingering position. Alternatively, users can choose what guitar fret the capo is on and what chord fingering position they are making, and the Kyser App with tell the user what chord sound is being heard. The Kyser App also features an easy and accurate guitar tuner, and an adjustable, audible and visual metronome with a rolling dial and tap feature. The camera button on the Kyser App pulls up the phone’s camera so guitarists can shoot video or snap pics and then instantly share on social media sites without first having to save the files to the phone. Additionally, Kyser will release discounts and coupon codes through the app which can be redeemed for other Kyser gear in the Kyser e-store.

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

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.
