Strymon El Capistan dTape Echo Pedal V2 - NEW


In brief: Tape Echo Pedal with Fixed/Multi/Single Tape Heads, 3 Modes, Spring Reverb Control, and Tap Tempo


The Strymon El Capistan dTape V2 is a tape delay emulator pedal that captures the sonic warmth and vintage character of analog tape delays without the hassle and expense of maintaining actual tape machines. It offers three classic tape machine emulations, each with its own unique characteristics and three modes to adjust delay time ranges, select tape heads, and access sound-on-sound looping. Whether you're aiming for vintage emulations like Echoplex or Space Echo or creating new analog delay sounds, the El Capistan provides a wealth of onboard parameters for precise sound shaping.


The pedal features six primary knobs for controlling Time, Mix, Tape Age, Repeats, Wow & Flutter, and Spring, allowing you to dial in a wide range of echo effects and character. Additionally, pressing both footswitches grants access to four secondary functions: Tape Crinkle, Tape Bias, Low-end Contour, and a +/- 3dB Boost/Cut. You can also connect a footswitch or expression pedal for instant recall and parameter control on the fly.
Underneath its surface, the El Capistan V2 incorporates several improvements for enhanced performance. It includes a high-quality JFET input circuit for improved responsiveness and dynamics. Switching between mono and stereo modes is simple with a rear-panel switch, and the pedal can be controlled via an expression pedal or MultiSwitch Plus. The introduction of a new ARM DSP chip increases processing power while reducing energy consumption, resulting in a clearer and more accurate tone.
With its versatile tape machine emulations, extensive parameter controls, and under-the-hood improvements, the Strymon El Capistan dTape V2 delivers the sound, feel, and functionality of analog tape delays in a convenient and high-performance pedal.
