    Some people are really amazing with loopers, but even those folks get fatiguing to me when they spend three minutes building loops for a song that only lasts another three or four minutes. Sometimes simple really is better.

    I agree. But I don't like listening to the 'look, I am going to pick up my fiddle, and tap on my guitar for the rhythm, then pick up a bass' kind of looping. I want the loops to be transparent, in that I can't tell what is live or what is looped. David Torn and Robert Fripp are amazing at that kind of looping.

    Makes a lot of sense

    What do you want the looper pedal for? For me, the main appeal is for solo practice . . . it's not something I'd use live. But for solo practice something like the digitech trio is leaps and bounds better than a simple looper.

    At the high end of the market is the Aeros. It's getting more and flexible and powerful with each release. Pricy, though. $599 ouch.

    If still looking Donner makes a good cheap one $40-45 10min loops, infinite overdubs reverse and a half speed and usb plugin if you just have to "save" one......I've sold my more expensive ones.

    I have read a lot of positive reviews on the 360. Thinking of getting one too.

    I've been using a Ditto X4 live lately, which allows 2 unsynced loops playing at once, and has a dedicated stop button, which is important to me. The new Ditto + has a multiply function, where you can take a 1 bar loop and play a 4 bar overdub over it. This is something my old Echoplex did 25 years ago, but it is a new concept in pedal loopers, so that is a plus.

    I'm currently shopping for a looper and the Nux JTC Drum & Loop Pro looks very good for solo practice. Liking the drum fills.

    I'm seriously considering that one, too. I want the drum tracks included, and it has two switches built in, and good specs. There's a couple of videos that show how it works, and it seems pretty good for the money.
