Strymon El Capistan 2 – dTape Echo – Tape Echo Delay Pedal

Vintage Vibe Machine.

With Strymon El Capistan 2, plug in, play a note or chord, and you feel it: All the warm, saturated, distinctive qualities and subtle nuances of vintage tape echo combine to instantly create an unmistakable atmosphere. Additionally, everything from classic slapback echoes to psychedelic space explorations have stunning richness and depth, responding to each note and knob turn in a musically inspiring way.

Turn up the repeats for organic delay feedback with just the right amount of grit. Dial in some spring reverb to further enhance the sense of space. Effortlessly create multi-layered ambient soundscapes with the tape-style sound on the sound looper. Specifically, transform your pedalboard into the inspiration machine it was meant to be.

Magnetic Monster.

El Capistan provides three different tape machine types in one pedal. Furthermore, each with three unique modes and extensive control over tape quality, machine health and tone shaping. Go from the full-range sonic stability of a fresh-from-the-factory echo machine. Afterwards, go to the heavily fluctuating sound of a road-worn unit in need of service.

In fact, enjoy the full-bodied sound of fresh tape, or dial in the dark, gnarled and vibey qualities of worn-out tape. Strymon meticulously handcrafted dTape™ technology and powerful ARM DSP give you a range of tape experiences. In fact, these would be unattainable with a single traditional tape machine. Plus you get sound on sound looping, all without the headaches of tape machine maintenance and repair.
