We’ll choose two winners who will both get an El Capistan dTape Echo and Tap Favorite combo.

The rules:

    • The next time you’re playing your instrument, take a photo of what you see or what you’re looking at.

  14. Patrick Lamont says:

    this paddle gets a reel tape sound

  15. luigi di berardino says:

    Bei pedali mi piacerebbe averne uno gratis

  16. Andrew Shively says:

    I actually own an el cap and I’m not just saying this to kiss up, but it’s my favorite pedal ever and in my opinion the best pedal ever made. If I was to win I would actually give it away to my friend who is new to playing guitar. In life, we decide we wanna go deeper into things when we love doing them. The el cap would be a key factor to help him get a sound to fall in love with.

  17. Emmanuel Pagakis says:

    Good luck to everyone. Strymon top pedals!!!

  18. bohall says:

    I´d love to win

  19. Caevan O'Shite says:

    I already have- and LOVE- an El Capistan; in case I win, if Strymon won’t substitute a BlueSky or Flint, the worst thing would be, I’d set up one El Cap for a sweet slapback and some other setting for the “Favorite” call-back, and run it into my current El Cap set to other, longer delays ‘n’ ‘verb, and use one, the other, or both together. ( B^}= Or, MAYBE I’d be nice and give the new El Cap to some deserving soul!

  20. Jacob says:

    I loved that pedal ever since I tried it out at a buddy’s pedalboard, hope I can get mine!

  21. TIM Takewell says:

    Great pedals

  22. Mark says:

    My El Capistan puts me into another dimension and unleashes my creative energy. Strymon is my mantra and the El Capistan my muse. Pedal genius!

  23. Sho Tada says:

    Timeline is awesome. But I need this one.

  24. Henry Arias says:

    The Capistan is the Best tape Echo Pedal I’ve tried !!!!!

  25. Martin says:

    Great Products!
    I own the BigSky and Timeline!

  26. Alex DeCaro says:

    This would add such a great ambient tone

  27. Michael Joseph says:

  33. Mark Gardiner says:

  34. Daniel says:

    I love
    this pedal!!!

  35. Pime Hernandez says:

    How cool..!! I’d love to win. I always sign up for these giveaways but never win! I think this pedal is amazing! It would be a dream come true to win.

  36. Mike says:

    Amazing pedal! My favorite pedal by far.

  37. Monty Curtis says:

    Strymon pedals are second to none! I have two Strymon pedals on my board at present. Both of which I use in conjuction with an expression pedal. Unique to Strymon (as far as I know) is that you can assign any on the controls to the expression pedal. That’s very cool and very useful.

  38. I love my Lex Rotary pedal!!

  39. Varun Darmaraj says:

    I am a current owner of the Flint and must say I absolutely love it! Just started collecting pedals so I don’t own a pedal board yet but I’ll still try my best to send some creative photos. I must say that the El Capistan is definitely a Dream Pedal for me. It’s unarguably One the best and most versatile Tape Delay pedal, with a pure sound and sleek design. Been a Strymon fan since I saw a friend with the Timeline, and will always be. Wish everybody all the best for the contest!

  40. Soony says:

    There have been several of these giveaways requiring you to participate in online social media. I would love to enter but refuse to conform to any part of what is intrusive/marketing. I am not giving my rights to privacy away for some million to one shot.

    That said I like the Strymon pedals. Rock on!

    • Angela says:

      Hi Soony, we understand that not everyone enjoys social media, so feel free to enter by emailing us your photo (strymonsocial@strymon.net). We do request permission to share it if you win, but we will only have it posted on our blog page announcing the winners.

  47. Krup Tschimm says:

    .. the next time you’re playing your instrument, take a photo of what you see or what you’re looking at and post it ..

    “I can see the pure power of noises. It can wake up minds
    .. and it might even make people disappear .. well,
    at least leaving the Room”

  52. Pasi says:

    STRYMON pedals makes me a better guitar player. I don´t even dare to step on stage without having at least one of their pedals on my pedalboard 🙂 . It´s just simply magic that happens when you connect your guitar with one of these pedals and that is why I can´t wait what kind of songs and tones the ElCapistan is holding inside. #STRYMONVIEW

  53. TIM Takewell says:

    Very nice sounding pedals

  54. Kerry Johnson says:
