Strymon El Capistan dTape Echo, Midnight Edition
Strymon El Capistan dTape Echo Effects Pedal, Midnight Edition
When Strymon decided to develop an effects pedal that delivers the sound and feel of their favorite tape echo machines, they knew they had to relentlessly study and faithfully recreate every last nuance. They spent months in the Strymon sound design labs with an intense focus on capturing the warm, saturated, distinctive qualities of tape echo machines. The result is the hand crafted Strymon El Capistan dTape Echo. This model comes in a limited Midnight Edition finish for extra added aesthetic!
Utilizing a ridiculously powerful SHARC DSP, every drop of processing power is harnessed. El Capistan provides three different tape machines 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!
