Alex Somers and Jónsi – El Capistan on tour

Posted by Ethan

Alex Somers, guitarist with Jónsi, just sent us a couple photos of himself and his El Capistan, which he used on their most recent tour. He told us that the pedal made it onto his touring rig as soon as he received it. “It sounds so good! Thanks so much for making such a cool pedal.”

We’re glad that his El Capistan is contributing to such wonderful music!

blueSky and El Capistan – drippy, shimmery music video

Posted by Ethan

Hey everyone… You may know me as the Strymon marketing guy, but i’m also a guy that spends way too much time writing songs and making videos. Here’s a piece I put together the other day that starts out with an old Univox drum machine running into both blueSky and El Capistan. The knobs slowly get cranked up all the way to create a wash of drippy shimmery drum machine echos.

I decided to turn this drum machine effects noise fest into a more involved piece, so I added piano, guitar, drums, vocals and some synths. El Capistan is also used heavily on the Roland Juno-6 and Yamaha DX21 synth parts. Hope you dig it.
