KYSER® DROP-D The Kyser® Quick-Change® Drop-D acoustic guitar capo puts alternate tunings at your fingertips without changing your fingering. Sink into the delta to practice your hammer thumb, or hammer out heavy licks with perfect one-finger power chords. The Drop-D lets you drop in anytime, no tuning required.
The Kyser® Drop-D Quick-Change™ is a tool for creative exploring. With it, you can get new, richer sounds from your guitar without having to relearn how to play the chords you already know. Place the Drop-D on the 2nd fret, and play a triangular-shaped D chord. Normally, you'd only play the high 4 strings, but now you can play all 6. Because the Kyser Drop-D is in the second fret, you're hearing an E chord - and the low string is an E, too. It sounds like Drop-D tuning! Now play a normal G chord. It'll sound just like it always did. If you retune, you change the fingering. With the Drop-D, the fingering stays the same, except if you want to play on the low E string. Play an E minor chord. Because the low string is open, you'll need to fret the low E string on the same fret as the capo, either below or above it.
he Kyser® Drop-D can be used on any fret, in standard or inverted position.
