David Bryant from Godspeed You! Black Emperor just sent us a few photos of his El Capistan at The Pines recording studio.

well if thats not the biggest thumbs up ever for an echo, i dont know WHAT is.
I just watched the demoes for the first time today. Holy…. this thing sounds intense! The double/tripple function knobs are a great idea!
(I built the yellow pedal in the 2nd pic, which is how I found this)
“El Capistan”? do you mean “El Capitán”? and this is wrong spelled in all your pedals?…
@Gon, Pete, our resident Sound Designer thought it would be neat-o to combine the word capstan with El Capitan to create our own word, El Capistan. A capstan is the part of a tape echo machine that helps move the tape through the tape machine. El Capitan is Spanish for the captain. It’s also a 3000ft rock formation in Yosemite National Park here in California. A place where echos are very prominent!
