“The El Capistan is a real treat that is guaranteed to put a smile the face of anyone who grew up loving tape echo. We compared it to real tube and solid state tape echo machines, and were able to authentically reproduce those sounds.”
“Strymon truly achieved their goal of offering the discerning player a pedal that accurately emulates the performance and sound quality of many of the great tape echo machines of the past. Better still, they did it at a reasonable price!”
Be sure to read the entire review over at Dinosaur Rock Guitar. They include an interesting history of tape echo machines onward into digital delays, onward to El Capistan!
