Because Kyser capos are Guaranteed for Life, you can always submit a warranty claim for an unexpectedwear, tear and repair, and we'll replace the capo for you free of charge. With that in mind, we recommend considering a replacement capo when the quality of your tone or instrument is compromised by extended use of the accessory.
No! We have dutifiully designed our soundhole humidifiers to drop directly in the guitar without any surface scratching or damange. With that in mind, we recommend ensuring all water is squeezed from the humidifier sponge before installing the humidifier. We also suggest storing your instrument in a case rather than hanging it to prevent the accumulation of moisture at the bottom of your guitar.
Kyser humidifiers are very easy to use: simply soak the sponge, squeeze and shake to remove excess moisture, thensnap the sponge back into place before inserting the humidifier into the soundhole of the instrument. The ring on the humidifier should sit on the edges of the guitar soundhole comfortably.
