    Thanks for the suggestions michael. i can't wait to get home to my loopers. i run 2 repeaters in my rig, controlled via footswitch and am constantly using them for practice and composition. can't wait to try out your excercise suggestions.

    It was a great read. I've never really thought of playing with a looper. Thank you Michael!



    P.S.

    My wife doesn't thank you- Now I'm GASing for a looper.

    :D

    it is a worthwhile investment...who needs a band when you can loop?

    I've been thinking about biting the bullet and just buying a new Jamman from Musicians Friend. I just bought an Ashbory, so I have to save up some more funds before I can get one.

    I REALLY want one. Too bad the 12-months-no-interest dealio doesn't apply to orders $499 and under.....
     
  6. Why not get Mobius (zonemobius.com) and a MIDI floorboard? PC based looping for considerably less than $499.

    I'm, too, going to buy a looper. From thomann.de you can get Digitech JamMan for 200-300€.

    I've been having fun with my brothers old guitar amp with in-build effects. It has two delays and the long delay is particulary lots of fun. I use it as a looper. I just have to loop stuff over and over again. Great for practicing time.

    Hmm. Great artictle, fun to read. Thanks.:)

    i've been playing with the Boomerang Phraser Sampler for a few months.. love this toy.. simple layout/interface, but with amazing verasitility once you figure out how to use it... it's all about timing..

    Thanks for the comments, everyone. I’m glad to hear you’re saving up for loopers and I like the suggestions for looping on a budget. In a pinch anything with a reasonably long echo will do just fine.

    I just bought a Digitech Jamman, and it's everything you described it to be! I'm practicing a lot more lately, and it shows.

    I've made some pretty interesting although rough compositions so far, and I'm very happy with the JamMan. It's a great tool, and I don't know how I ever lived without one. :D
