I picked up a few things on an order from Thomann last week. One of the things I got was a Strymon El Capistan. I heard clips from it a good while back and thought it sounded great. I checked out more vids and they all sounded really good so I was looking at them but the price put me off. When I was on tour last year I got to try one out in a pedal shop and was blown away by it, the guys in the shop were all praise about it too. My other delay started acting up too so I just went for it.
So far I've toyed with it a nice bit and there are some amazing tones in there. I brought it to band practice and gave it a shot in a few places but I'll need to tweak it a bit to get it sounding better, I had it in front of the amp but I'll try the loop next time. I'd say I'll use it a good bit in the studio when I record next too. It's got a lot of character that would be great for some ambient sounds and layers.
