I just bought an El Capistan, and I have to say it's one of the best pedal purchases I've ever made. I bought it to go with a '63 Fender Bassman I'm getting, and I hooked it up to my Axe-FX in the meantime. This thing just SMOKES! The El Capistan setting in the Axe-FX doesn't even come close IMO. I went through the Axe-FX FAQ and dialed in the tape-echo settings there. Nice, but not in this league. Any review from you beta testers on the new Tape Echo effect in the Axe-FX II? Sorry if I've missed such a review. If I have, please point me there. I've been busy playing with my El Capistan.
