Hand-applied Chrome and Candy Teal powder coat, because Milton liked to "make 'em shine"
Although most would never imagine, many steps go into the manufacturing and production of the Kyser Quick-change Capo. At least 14 different hands handle the capo throughout the process. And although our product could be made by machines or robots or mass produced in other manners, nothing can beat the pure heart, soul, blood, sweat and tears that go into each and every one… and we are all proud to say that we made it right here in our humble East Texas factory.
Our work is our family, and so our work is our life. It takes 35 people to make just one Kyser capo, and we hand-craft each of them in a 14-step process from the best American-made materials available, and only on the custom machinery Milton Kyser designed himself. That’s because good parts and good work make good products, and at Kyser Musical Products it’s just that simple. Quality over quantity, or don’t bother coming in tomorrow. It’s Milton’s recipe; it’s the East Texas way, and it’s remained unchanged for nearly 40 years.
We are the house that work built. From Milton, to our President and his niece, Meredith, and all the way down to the end of the line, Kyser Musical Products is a family that works, grounded in equality, bonded in pride, and committed to innovative manufacturing, while remaining dedicated to the artists that depend on Kyser Musical Products every night–and that’s not just an idea.

Who is "Meredith" you might ask? Milton Kyser wanted to create a good, reliable capo and that trust is what has propelled Kyser forward for 40 years. But it was when he turned the company over to his great niece Meredith McClung-Attebery that the future of Kyser truly began to take shape. The president and owner has refined Kyser's approach locally and globally, with a footprint in more than 35 countries and commitment to existing and emerging artists worldwide. Meredith honors a 40-year legacy while pushing for a more inclusive and connected Kyser community. She isn't afraid to stand for what she believes in. And neither are we.
To celebrate that independent spirit and the future of music leadership, Kyser is proud to introduce the "Meredith" Signature Quick-Change Acoustic Guitar Capo. The second in our 40th anniversary signature series, this limited-edition capo has been thoughtfully designed to commemorate not only where we've been, but also where we are going.
