With the same advanced electronics and outstanding tones, Strymon treated some of its classic pedals to sleek black finishes near the end of 2021. These dark pedals are part of a limited run from Strymon. All tones and functions are the same as the original models.
Imagine a world where you could have the amazing tone and mojo from your favorite analog tape delay, with the reliability of digital technology, in a pedalboard friendly size. Okay, you can stop imagining now and open your eyes... you’re freaking me out! The Strymon EL Capistan dTape Echo is exactly what the doctor ordered. With three different style tape delays modeled, a spring reverb and 10 controllable parameters, the EL Capistan is an incredibly functional and amazing pedal. Thanks to Strymon’s powerful DSP technology, they’ve managed to meticulously and accurately recreate the tape delay experience without the quirks of an actual analog machine. Being a digital pedal also allows the use of tap tempo, something that is unheard of and nearly impossible on a typical analog tape delay. In addition to the features mentioned above, the EL Capistan also offers a sound on sound tape looping mode. By using the tap tempo button in the single tape head setting on mode C, you can create incredible loops with the added bonus of analog tape delay mojo imparted on the signal. The EL Capistan is the perfect solution for anyone who is looking for an amazing analog style tape delay without all of the fuss.
