I'm looking to pick up a simple looper just for my solo jamming needs. All I'm looking to do is lay down some chord progressions/riffs and then loop them to solo over. What would be my best option to pickup for these needs? I don't need anything with all the bells and whistles (like the Digitech JamMan), but I want something that'll do the job right. I have no budget, but inexpensive is always a plus.

I think the Boss RC-2 loop station would be pretty much what you need (I think!)

Is it really easy to use? If I change channels on an amp, does it affect the loop though? I mean, it won't affect me now, but if I do end up getting a Rocker 30 in the near future, if I switch from the clean to the dirty, will it change my recorded loop?

It will, unless it's in the effects loop

if it's in the effects loops it will just send a sound straight to the speaker and then when you change channel the signal from the looper to the speaker won't be changed

There's no effects loop on the Rocker 30 haha. If I were to run a looper and then switch pickups and throw on a boost/overdrive, would it change to my new tone then, or would it remain the original tone I just recorded?

well since the signal goes from the looper through the amp then to the speaker, i think it would change.

you can add an FX loop yourself or have a tech do it.

I've heard horror stories of people trying to add effects loops to Rocker 30's and it was no dice. So basically, if I loop a tone, if I were to play over it, I'd have to be the exact same tone?

You would need pedals, switching channels will change the tone of the loops.

So if I record a loop in a cleanish tone, then kick in a boost and an overdrive, it won't change the tone of the loop?

As long as you have only clean amplification *after* the looper then you will be fine. Any overdrive or distortion or any FX of any kind *after* the looper will not be good.

Yep, just make sure the looper is last in the chain.

Oh okay, thanks! That doesn't seem too difficult. Can I run any pedal infront, or is it only going to be limited to a boost/OD and other modulation effects?
