    Hi there:

    I`ve just rewatched Bass Day 98. I just love MM performance and wondered about
    that loop device he uses when playing "Teen town".
    I mean, I`ve never used that kind of devices for soloing and wonder:

    - What was it ?
    - Are they easy to manage ?
    - Approx.cost ?

    I know Steve Lawson uses a lot of loops in his solos (maybe you can guide me too)
    I just wanna get a little knowledge and know if they`re worthy.

    it looked like 2 lexicon jam-mans to me. I don't think they're being made anymore. The current box of choice to replace the jam-man is the Gibson Digital Echoplex. That one costs about 800 USD + 100 USD for the foot controller.

    is this the reggae-ish kinda song? that was soo sweet

  4. Wasn't that Victor Wooten playing "A Night in Tunisia" at Bass Day 98???
  5. And i'm pretty sure that Vic is using an Echoplex (EDP) at BD98.

    I did, as Bass of Galt suggested, use two Lexicon JamMans to play "Teen Town" at the Bass Day 98 show. The JamMan had a nice feature that allowed them to be run in sync, giving you more loop options. They were a pretty simple device and relatively easy to use, but unfortunately they are out of production these days. There are a number of cool loopers out there, though. Have a look at www.loopers-delight.com for the complete info.
