Kyser Musical Products, Inc. has released the Limited-Edition Milton Kyser Signature Acoustic Quick-Change Capo, or the "Milton" capo, in celebration of its 40th anniversary in 2020. The capo is thoughtfully designed to pay tribute to company founder Milton Kyser, who revolutionized guitar performance with his invention of the Quick-Change capo, while looking forward to a bright future of invention and expression through Kyser’s humble East Texas handcrafting facility, and its global stable of artists.
"With this special product, we’re not only paying homage to Uncle Milton’s 40-year legacy of fine craftsmanship," said Kyser owner and President Meredith McClung, "we are also acknowledging and honoring his commitment to unity through music. This capo represents 40 years of making that vision a reality, but will also empower future artists and inspire creativity and human connection for years to come."
Available in an exclusive run of 2,020 units and handcrafted in Texas, the "Milton" capo features a number of premium touches never before curated together on Kyser’s flagship Quick-Change design. Features include a special powder-coated chrome finish, a "Milton Kyser" original signature stamp, and blackout appointments, including a black boot, black rubber pad and black low-tension spring for seamless, in-tune performance.
"The Kyser brand is strong because the product is strong," said Kyser CEO Scott Attebery. "Milton Kyser’s design has withstood the test of time. He set the standard for quick-change capos with a commitment to American-made, handcrafted quality. That’s why artists have trusted Kyser for 40 years now."
The capo comes bundled in a special keepsake box complete with a hand-numbered certificate of authenticity signed by McClung herself. The official anniversary festivities kick off at the 2020 National Association of Music Merchants Show in Anaheim, California. this week.
