Looper Pedals
« on: May 25, 2013, 09:15:14 PM »
I don't have a lot of experience with these things, so I figured I'd get one and spend some time with it. Well, a few years ago (I don't know exactly how long) I thought I'd try the Boss RC-3 Loop Station pedal. Now I really was kind of intimidated by this thing which was one of the reasons why I didn't get that thing (the other being the price). At $199, it still isn't cheap. Yeah, there was a looper in my Line 6 M9, but it was a chore to use. At least for me. Fast forward a few years and I got this itch to try again. Especially since I saw the "Ditto" looper from TC Electronic. Looks pretty simple I thought, and the price, $129....... well lets just say yeah, lets do it! But wait a minute.... I found something else even better! What you ask? Feast your eyes on this!!!!  http://www.digitech.com/en-US/products/jamman-express-xt  ......and the battery IS included! Yes, I can wait.

I think the m9 looper is ok?
Although I prefer the jm-4 since it has so much more, like a sd card to load wav files on. Not
To mention it comes with songs and drums already. It's a bit expensive but incredibly valuable for practicing. I use it a lot for teaching.

Well right now I'm basically looking for a stand alone unit. That type of thing you can pretty much just jump into. If I had a JM4, it would be a stay home unit for sure. Then again, one of those would be somewhat of a learning curve for me.

Just ran across this today. The original looper by Les Paul?
