Although looper pedals can’t offer a cool new sound to add to your arsenal of effects, they are becoming a staple on many musician’s pedalboards for offering something more. A loop pedal lets you record a riff or chord sequence to create a "loop", which is played back repeatedly until you decide to stop that loop. A lot of loopers let you overdub too, which means that you can record on top of the first loop and form layered arrangements and soundscapes. This isn’t only amazing for live applications, but also for creating your own backing tracks to jam along to!
With loop pedals like the TC Electronic Ditto and Boss RC-1 available for those that want something simple and affordable, these companies also produce more sophisticated units that are designed for the true experimentalists! Plenty of other leading guitar pedal brands offer their own loop pedals too, such as Electro-Harmonix, Pigtronix and even Landlord FX.
