As much as I love my TimeLine Delay from Strymon, I find the banking system to be a little bit difficult at times. Having to hit 2 switches at once to go up or down scrolling through presets is not my favorite part about that pedal…well, I must not be the only one, because Strymon has heard our complaints and come up with an elegant, easy-to-use and multi-functional solution: the MutliSwitch. Compatible with the TimeLine, BigSky...

Where to begin… Lets start with washy, wobble, and crinkle. So much tape goodness in one awesome pedal. Ive owned the El cap for about 7 months, and it still keeps me guessing what corner of the unknown universe i will be carried to next. But I digress, lest my rambling be in vain. The El Capistan can really make a huge array of sounds. Ambient, ethereal, nostalgic are obvious and easily attainable, but I really just love it for...

Well, this is a big one. The current reigning champion of the Delay world in stompbox manufacturing, the TimeLine Delay from Strymon. I gotta tell you, I was a bit skeptical about this pedal, and had gotten a little sick of seeing it everywhere, to be honest. Roughly 3 minutes after I plugged my guitar into it, I understood what all the hubbub was about. This moderately-sized gray enclosure seriously holds the keys to all your delay...
