Strymon’s El Capistan dTape Echo pedal is the perfect choice for anyone who wants the natural warmth and sonic idiosyncrasies of real tape delay, but doesn’t fancy calibrating and maintaining analog tape technology. By harnessing the impressive power of an entire SHARC DSP chip, Strymon’s dTape algorithms bring to life three classic tape machine styles. With ten totally tweakable parameters at your fingertips, El Capistan is a creative musician’s best friend, and bonus features including onboard spring reverb and a sound-on-sound looper provide a staggering range of time-based effects.
