Let’s talk about Loop Pedals… I mean, who needs a band anyway?! We are super excited to have the Nu-X Loop Core and Octave Loop in stock at Sunday Guitars now and we thought this was a perfect moment to talk about loop pedals and why one would want one in their setup.
Loop pedals allow the player to record a phrase or part of a song and then play that phrase back on repeat, or a “loop”. This is wonderful for the solo/singer-songwriter, percussionists looking to add background sounds, or even for practicing multiple parts when no one else is around to jam with.
Nowadays there are a wide variety of manufacturers making Loop Pedals of all sizes and purposes. Here are a few of our favorites that have received accolades though out the last 20-25 years.
The first affordable looper and the one that found itself on many a stage from in the Early 00s. BOSS revolutionized the loop pedal world with the RC series. A simpler format then the Boomerang, but still plenty of power inside to maintain a professional presence when playing live.
After about 5-8 years of BOSS owning the mainstream loop pedal market, TC Electronic jumped on board with a super stripped down, super easy to use, 1 knob version of a loop pedal; The Ditto. It was simple and affordable and for the person wanting to practice at home it was just what the tone-doctor ordered.
Digitech took the Loop Pedal world to new levels when they added a drum machine and backing tracks to the loop feature for a full band experience right inside the pedal. Now the player could loop their song along with adding bass and drum lines.
Now that we have seen how far the loop world has come, we can tell you why we are so excited about the Nu-X Loop Pedals we just got in at the shop. The Loop Core is a straightforward, simple to use loop pedal with built in drum loops. The small footprint of the enclosure makes this an easy add on to any pedal-board.
