hey, so I was looking on ebay for used loop pedals like the BOSS ,because I don't realy want to pay that much for a pedal that I probably wouldn't use that much, and I noticed some true bypass £20-£30 ($30-$50 roughly) does anyone know if these are any good and how long they actually record sound for?

I currently have an epiphone les paul plus top and vox vt20 (brilliant amp by the way)

Thanks

Different sort of loopers dude, They have an FX loop, and you can put a few different FX in the loop as sort of a 'preset' Setting.
Hope that helps

Can we get a link to see what you are talking about? It sounds like those are bypass loop pedals where you essentially create an effects loop in your signal chain. There is no way that a looper pedal is going to cost only $30 bucks.

sorry guys ****ed up big time their !

Yeah that isn't a recording looper.
Its a signal chain bypass looper.
Did you not see the diagrams at the bottom of the listing?
Clearly recording loopers don't allow you to use multiple guitars or multiple amps.

If he wants to use a looper then he may need a new amp.

A looper isn't going to work well with a multifx amp because the looper needs to be after all the FX/Distortion/Amp Modeling.

haha too true. My old English teacher was a bitch come to think of it :/

All he said was looper. That could mean two different things to me right off the bat and the TS didn't know the difference.
I know English isn't difficult for a natural born in an English speaking country, but for some foreigners English it's like Chinese.

And seriously did you need to comment.

Again he didn't know the difference and he didn't say specifically what it was until he posted the link. Why do you keep saying the same thing?

Errr, no he doesn't. Don't be stupid, you can loop through any amp, it's not mandatory to use all the built-in gimmicks.

i tihnk he just means that if you loop something with a clean tone and then turn on some distortion and delay form the amp to play a solo, it will put those effects on the loop as well. which kinda limits the use of the looper.

edit: but i totally agree, he has no need for a new amp

You're not the sharpest tool in the drawer are you? The post I was replaying to was making a joke about all the "you need a new amp" recommendations. However, a lot of times the first question people have is... why does their loop sounded like crap, because they don't understand a looper has to be after the distortion and FX. So I thought it was a bit ironic the joke about not needing a new amp.

The fact is that for most people a looper cannot be used as much more than a rudimentary practice tool if you don't use the distortion and FX on your modeling amp. And your claim that you can't "use *all* the built-in gimmicks" is off base. You can't use hardly any of your "gimmicks" when using a looper. So back to school for you.
