C-clamp capos are great for their flexibility, but dialing in the perfect tension can be a pain.

Trigger capos, like the Kyser Quick-Change Capo, offer convenience over utility.

Features:

  • Clamping Mechanism: Torsion spring trigger
  • Materials: Aluminum
  • Tension Adjustment: none
  • Suitable for: 6-string Acoustic or Electric guitar

Pros

While the design is often copied and there are similar capos in the market for less, users looking for a premium trigger-style capo like the Kyser Quick-change capo for its simplicity and long-term durability. Also, their reviews often note the longevity of the springs and rubber pads; even mentioning how one capo lasted them several years.

Cons

Some note that the spring is too tight, making one-handed operation a chore as well as putting the strings out of tune. If you don't have good grip on your non-dominant hand, it may present some trouble. Proper positioning of the capo is necessary to alleviate some of the tuning problems.

Overall

The Kyser Quick-Change Capo is best for those that want a capo to last. It might be too tight for guitars with higher action at the nut or bigger frets.
