Good for price, but practical limitations.

RichardH59, 22.06.2018
I am a guitarist / bassist, playing in a indie pop / rock band.
I bought this pedal as an introduction to looping. My idea was to use this initially as a practice and composition tool, perhaps using it during performance if I could find a use for it.

The pedal itself is quite small, but feels solid and well made. The foot switches operate cleanly, but given the size of the device may be a little too close together for use in a live performance. Especially if you have large feet or wear heavy boots. Avant-garde performance artists intending to wear dive flippers on stage take note!

I needed to spend a little time understanding how the controls worked before I could get anything useful out of the Looper. Not necessarily a criticism; I have not used any similar devices so can't compare functionality. Once I had figured it out, the looper proved easy to use. Others have commented on the brightness of the LED's and I would agree - they are so powerful it becomes hard to read the pale grey labels against the red background.

My initial tests were with an electric guitar plugged directly into the Looper with the device running out to a small Fender practice amp. As I built up loops it became clear that the earliest parts soon became buried. This issue can perhaps be addressed by judicious use of the level control. However, I think the number of useful overdubs one can achieve is limited. Again, this issue might be alleviated by routing left and right channels into separate amplifiers, but I have yet to try this.

It is also worth mentioning that the output causes distortion if headphones are connected directly to the output. The outputs were not designed for this purpose, so not a criticism. Just be aware if, like me, you are hoping to use this for private practice.

To sum up, this is a well put together device in a format that may be a little too small and fiddly for live performance. At the price, however, it is a reasonable entry level Looper which rewards a little time taken to learn how it functions.

Very Disappointed

Resophonic, 18.04.2018
I was expecting good things from this looper, but I found it to be very disappointing.

1) The manual is not very clear at all. Until I worked things out myself, it was recording only the first note of a loop, the manual is not very clear in that the second switch does more than simply be an FX switch. I finally got it working to record simple loops, but only by flicking switches and working it out myself, when I found then that....

2) The sound degradation is very poor, it loses a lot of quality on the recorded loops.

3) It is over complicated for simple looping, yet the poor sound quality doesn't make it compete with the more complex loopers if that what you may need.

Luckily the power supply that I had to buy for it, will work with other better quality loopers that I think must do a better job than this one. I think a Jam Man Express may be a better buy than this one. Shame, because Harley Benton guitars are pretty good quality wise.
