The sonic warmth and unpredictable quirks of a genuine tape delay are often sought out for their ability to imbue vintage character into any project. That said, collecting and maintaining analog tape tech can be an expensive hassle. Building on the success of Strymon's original tape echo emulator is the El Capistan dTape V2, bringing a trio of classic tape machine styles to life with a wealth of parameters on board to fine-tune your sound to perfection. You still get the same Fixed, Multi, and Single tape heads of the original along with a three-position Mode switch to alter the pedal's operation depending on which tape head is selected. The addition of a Spring control allows you to dial in varying levels of reverb without affecting input or output levels. Accessing this pedal's four secondary modes is as easy as pressing both switches, allowing you to tweak Low-end Contour, Tape Bias, and Tape Crinkle along with a +/-3dB boost or cut. Add the Strymon El Capistan dTape V2 to the toolkit and harness the real-deal sound, feel, and functionality of analog tape for yourself!
