Looper Pedal
« on: June 25, 2017, 06:19:36 pm »
Does anyone have a recommendation for a good budget looper pedal? Just looking for something to replay a rhythm, so I can play lead along with it.

Thanks.

I would recommend the Electro Harmonix EH 360, I've got the 720 which has the same electronics but double the time storage, it's been really good and had plenty of use. The Ditto is also very good but I think it might be more expensive  than the EHX.

I've got a Donner Looper pedal off Amazon, it's similar to the ditto. It's simple, does it's job, is cheap and I've had no issues in 12 months

Hey man.. Does donner one has any warranty with it when you buy it? I am considering it.

The Boss RC-1 is a bit more, but the display looks pretty useful. Anyone used one?

I used the Boss one once at a friend's place. It had more features, but was more confusing, in my one jam.

I have a Ditto and a Ditto 2X. For practice, the Ditto is fine, but to stop it requires a double tap, which is tricky if you ever want to use it for performance - it can be hard to do a double tap whilst maintaining rhythm with your hand and voice. So, I got the 2X, which has single button stopping and a few other features, which I never use.

Yes I forgot about that, the other reason for me getting the 720 was separate switches for on/off. Plus it does stereo as does my amp.

I'm listening in on this as I believe Boss makes a 2 button/peddle looper, which for me would much easier to use than the single ones when playing live.

It might be easier and, possibly, cheaper to add an external footswitch to a RC-1. That's what I have done with my RC-3.

The Digitech Jamman loopers are also worth looking at, and they definitely do a 2 button version.

Cheers,

Keith

Since we are listing features, the Ditto 2X also allows you to split your signal into two amps.

I own an RC-1 for practice only. It does the job. For live gigs I'd definitely buy the external foot pedal.

I have the RC-3 and following advice on here, added a separate FS-1 which does the stop and clear functions. Absolutely revolutionised it and makes it a really useable gigable device.

Thanks guys! I'm a long way from giging so will probably go for the Boss for now. Thanks
