    The 2 I use:
    a pair of Echoplex Digital Pros, which are the absolute king of loopers, and a close 2nd for improvisations, the Ditto X4.

    The tried an true red label Boss? It comes in two button and a four or five button. Had the two button years back and couldn't complain at all. Little more pricey than the EH and TC I believe.

    The Boss one isn't bad for practice, and if you use it to compose using traditional song structures. It tends to lock looping to a grid, which many like, but isn't my thing. It is a great pedal for soloing practice, though.

    Jam-man Express. Gets me through. I'd like to add a Ditto looper to it. Dittos go for $60 all day on eBay.

    The only thing about the Ditto is that when clearing a loop, you hear it for about 2 seconds of the loop before it realizes it has to erase it. The Jamman Express doesn't do this, which is why I got it.

    I use the Boss RC20XL. Like Mincer said, it's probably not the best thing if you're doing heavy live usage, but I like it a lot. Small learning curve, so it's easy to go from "What the hell is this thing?" to having fun with it.

    Several of my delay pedals have a loop option, which Iíve never even tried. I donít use loops, because typically I, like, play with other people? ;-)

    Well, I play with other people, too, which is why I love using them. I think people get stuck in the 'let me build a song from the ground up' style of looping with rhythmic loops playing backing patters with the loopist soloing over it. That gets boring to me, unless I am practicing at home. I generally use 2 un-synced loops underneath what the band is playing, filling out the sound. They are constantly changing, and don't line up with the band or each other (they are non-rhythmic) providing a bed of underneath.

    I play with myself..but also play with others..

    Nux Loop core ($99) does the trick for me....

    Also bought an "Ammoon" stereo looper foe $60..very nice, but I blew that up using the wrong walwart (15V instead of 9V).

    For me... This sounds like a recipe of senseless wankery.

    In the wrong hands, certainly. Better stick to what you know.

    This sounds like band "practice" on a Saturday afternoon after a few beers.

    Boss RC-3
    can set the switching order however you best like it (I hate it stock so I set it like my flashback's looper)
    can run with or without beats or a chirp/click track (quantizes if beats are on, but not if off)
    can download your own beats also!
    can store 100 loops and many hours
    can use remotes to expend it's convenience (even just one non-latching for tap-tempo/kill is great)

    It's not a performance-based looper but can work for that too if needed, especially with a dual remote setup.
    I'd agree with Mincer that it's more of a song builder type looper, but can easily be less than that too.
