The El Capistan dTape Echo by Strymon delivers three types of tape machine in one, each featuring three distinct modes. With ten parameters to tweak, you have comprehensive control of tone sculpting, tape quality, and machine health. The El Capistan allows you to go from the sound of a primitive, studio-grade tape machine to the intensely fluctuating sound of a machine needing service. Capture the full-bodied sound of new tape to the gnarled characteristics of old tape.

    For me, this is a versatile and great-sounding pedal, but there are others worth considering. My Boss RE-20 Space Echo sounds as good but is way less expensive. The El Capistan also isn’t the most user-friendly option available. I don’t find the tap tempo very helpful, and it only gives 1.5 secs of delay max.
