The Strymon El Capistan Tape Echo Pedal is the best tape echo emulation pedal on the market. Don't worry about carrying around a full size tape echo unit! This pedal has everything and more than a real tape echo/delay has. El Capistan provides three different tape machine types in one, each with three unique modes. With ten parameters to tweak, you get extensive control over tape quality, machine health and tone shaping. Go from the sound of a pristine, studio-quality tape machine to the heavily fluctuating sound of a machine in need of service. Get the full bodied sound of fresh tape all the way to the gnarled qualities of worn out tape. Because it's DSP driven, you get a range of tape experiences unattainable with a traditional tape machine. All of this without the headaches of tape machine maintenance and repair! Five "hidden" knobs for extensive tone tweaking:Tape Crinkle, Tape Bias, Low End Contour, Spring Reverb, +/- 3dB Boost/Cut. Just hold Tap and Bypass simultaneously to access the secondary features. Your 5-knob El Capistan is really a 10-knob tape echo!
