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.

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.

TC Electronic Ditto X2 Looper Review

If you loved the Ditto looper but wanted just a little bit more in terms of features, TC Electronic may have hit the nail on the head with the Ditto X2. It’s the same great sounding looper pedal as the original, except it has two footswitches instead of one, lets you import and export loops and jamtracks to your computer, and gives you reverse and 1/2 speed effects. Just like the original Ditto, the Ditto X2 is easy to use right out of the box, with all the features you need, and none of the fluff you don’t.

Pigtronix Infinity Looper Review

Pigtronix didn’t pull any punches with the marketing of the Infinity Looper. Promising revolutionary new features for live musicians and a looper which doesn’t interfere with your tone, it generated much anticipation from the looping community. Although most guitarists assume these claims are about as reliable as political promises on the run-up to an election, the Infinity might actually be able to back it up. It was finally released in November 2012, and it just might give the bigger manufacturers like Boss and Digitech a run for their money.

Boss RC-300 Loop Station Review

The Boss RC-300 Loop Station is the new “flagship” looper from Boss. Being hailed as the second coming before it was even released, the Boss RC-300 has a lot to live up to. Not only was it’s predecessor, the RC-50 Loop Station, loaded with features, Digitech’s competing looper pedal, the JamMan Delay, is similarly large and loaded with cool features. With such stiff competition, the RC-300 Loop Station has to deliver something very special to stand out from the crowd.

Boss RC-30 Loop Station Review

Boss kicks off 2011 with two new looper pedals, the RC-3 Loop Station and the RC-30 Loop Station. The RC-30 Loop Station is a twin pedal and the larger of the two.
