    ok, just readed a lot of posts of looper pedal and i discovered than i need 1.

    everyone talks about loooper, but my options are just the ones you can get in music123.com or musiciansfriend.

    so, should i get a BOSS LS-2? or its a bad idea to get a non-true bypass?

    the othe i found that is simple and effewct loop with true bypass is the aramat:

    any comments on this one?

    alos, im buying a pedalboard, and i looked to the BOSS BCB60,
    which seems to have many inputas and outputs, but i cant find what are they for, maybe theres a effect loop there, anyone?

    Why are you limited to musiciansfriend and music123? The Aramat Looper is identical in function to the Loooper, for $19 more and a much larger case. Electronically, I believe it to be exactly the same. If you want to spend that kind of money, go for it, but remember, you can have a smaller loooper for $42 shipped.

    bump here for not starting a new thread.

    the new question is,

    i need the looper for not going throght 4 boss pedals in off, but since i readed thje LS-2 is not true bypass maybe ill be with the same proble, or does the LS-2 doesnt change the signal to a point its notisable?

    Anyone know where I can get a really small looper pedal? I saw one that looks like it's barely bigger than a pack of gum or two.

    I just got a custom loooper from David Boggs..this thing has top shelf construction..silent, no noise ,pops, or coloration. I got the tuner mute option as well as the blender option.

    Petary- He does make a mini loooper.
    I highly recommend his stuff.

    That loooper site is sweet! What's the difference between having 1, 2, 3, or 4 stomps?

    if you mean 1,2,3 or 4 loops....
    it would be like having 4 fx loops all switchable.

    you can run any combo of pedals thru a loop...all to be activated at once. With 4 loops, you could run 4 different banks of pedals. My friend is making what we call a poor man's Bradshaw.....he's taking a 4 loop pedal and making a custom snake that runs to his rack shelf with the stomp boxes. He also owns a real Bradshaw system...but this one is for his smaller rig.

    the tuner mute is a must..

    What is the thing below your blend knob?

    that's a rocker switch that takes the blend out of the circuit...on/off

    Ah! I didn't see that option when I ordered mine. One of my loops has a blend knob, but it is defeatable by a mini toggle.

    I was looking to set up a loooper almost exactly the same only without the blend rocker. looks great too!

    How much did that run you?

    without the blender..take off 20.00 bucks.
