Strymon el Capistan and KORG ms-20 Jam session

Yeah, i have been a very bad boy... i came home with a strymon el Capistan today. I so much fell in love with the blueSky and its no nonsense setup.. direct access to all params from the pedal = perfect for my style of playing jamming which allows real time tweaking.

When i connected it, i instantly found a sweet spot for my classic BURG solo sound = Tape Head / fixed, mode C, with tape age on 12 o'clock, wow and flutter on 1.. repeats being tweaked borderline self oscillation at times. I also added 50% spring reverb (tap+bypass, time knob)..

The dreadbus does a simple 16 step sequence just for flavour and beat, internal delay + the bluesky with some room reverb.

Not really a track, just a jam as i wanted to record the nice feeling of the ms-20 solo sound.. which becomes super dynamic and musical together with the el capistan.

Let me know what you think :)

cheers !"
