"Is this a pedal or an amp Jim? Sounds a bit more efficient than the Roland,-trouble with loopers, you have to be so precise with that start/stop footswitch, incidentally, I have noticed that the AC-33 I use, has an irritating "synch…"

"I got the Boss RC-3 which seems to fit the bill even though it wants to do more than I want it to do.  I have found a remote foot switch males ot a bit better for my needs.  I used it on my gig last night and felt it did a good job with…"
