Ditto Stereo Looper Review

The original Ditto is a legendary looper, casting aside complexity in favor of top-notch sound quality and ease-of-use. Since then, the X2 and X4 versions have taken the concept further, incorporating effects and more footswitches into the same core framework. But the follow-up pedals both lost some simplicity in the process, and if you’re a fan of the minimalism of the original Ditto, you might be looking for something that bridges the gap between the two.

Boss RC-202 Loop Station

Boss’s RC-505 took looping in a new direction. When it was released, looping was really all about guitarists, and it still is today to some extent. But the behemoth of a looper was expressly designed with broader goals in mind. The “tabletop” looper was designed to be operated by hand, and vocalists and beatboxers (like DubFX) were the intended audience more than six-string wielding guitarists.

Electro-Harmonix 720 Stereo Looper Review

The 720 Stereo Looper is basically Electro Harmonix’s version of the Ditto X2. There are benefits to both options, but it definitely gives TC Electronic’s pedal some serious competition – offering pretty similar features and more onboard memory – and it’s actually a little bit cheaper too. This ultimately means it offers a lot of the same core benefits, particularly its simplicity and great sound quality, and it’s another solid looper pedal, especially for casual players not bothered by the stuff it can’t do. If you pick it up instead of the Ditto X2 or other similar loopers on the market, you definitely won’t be disappointed, and you’ll save yourself a bit of money too.

Electro-Harmonix 22500 Looper Review

The Electro-Harmonix 22500 dual stereo looper was announced at NAMM 2015 and seems to be the pedal many people have been requesting. For example, it has two stereo loops that can be played either in parallel or sequentially for verse/chorus switching. Plus it has a mic input with phantom power and built in drum patters. These features alone take it to the top of many guitarists wish lists. It has just enough features to do about everything you could want in a looper pedal, without becoming a monstrosity on your pedal board.

Boss RC-1 Loop Station Review

For a while there, it seemed like Boss and Digitech were competing to make the most complicated looper on the planet. Stripped-down, simple-to-use looper pedals are becoming more common, however, with options like the Ditto, JamMan Express XT, Nano 360, and the Wally offering back-to-basics functionality. Boss isn’t a complete stranger to this game, having released the RC-2 and RC-3 – which were stompbox-sized, but still had plenty of features. With the RC-1, Boss has ventured further into minimalist territory.

Electro-Harmonix Nano Looper 360 Review

Tiny loopers are all the rage these days, and after Electro-Harmonix’s multi-track 2880 and 45000 offerings, they’ve decided to get a piece of the action too. The Nano Looper 360 is a tiny unit, immediately opening up comparisons with pedals like the JamMan Express and the TC Electronic Ditto (and Ditto X2). These are primarily aimed at those new to looping, wanting something to improve their jam sessions or just have a bit of fun with without paying the big bucks to get their hands on a larger, more feature-laden unit. However, does the simplicity work in its favor, or will you just be left wanting more?
