I've heard of them and seen them, but i've never figured out what they are. I just saw a boss loop pedal on Musiciansfriend, and it said something about it records stuff, is that it, or am i mistaken. So, what exactly IS a loop pedal?

It records you playing for a certain amount of time and plays it back, but loops it.

You can play something that records onto it and it plays back either once or forever. you can use this to practice solos, cause you can play over the "loop" as it plays back.

It just records you playing a riff or a progression, then plays it back thru your amp. Check out a kt tunstall live video or a video of Jaco Pastorious playing "Slang" live to see what you can do with one.

theres also another kind of loop pedal.

it normally has a few switches, basically you can setup your effects so when you hit a button on the loop box, it can turn on or off numerous effects at the same time. Good for songs needing certain effects at a certain time.

Sorry to hijack, but how is your Monsterpiece Fuzz? I have heard nothing but good and for the price they sound like they can't be beat.

Today's actually the first time i've been able to really play with it.

Its really good, i'm not quite used to fuzz's yet, but from what its supposed to do, it sounds great. I really like the NPN and how it cleans up but the PNP is good for really biting leads. I like it though, i just need to get accustomed to fuzz pedals.

Awesome. I've been in the market for a fuzz but can't get the money for a really "good boutique" one so I have been looking at those and some other ones like the Catalinbread V8. I was pretty much set but I might have to see if I can get my hands on a Monsterpiece.

I had a 4 second loop function on my old delay, and now have 23 seconds to toy with. I have to say I am lookin forward to putin it to more use.

You can make crazy droning stuff, layer some chords, practice solos, and it has and will help me a ton in the future with multiple part songs, and makin sure it's in key, or at least sounds cool.

i just got a boss loop station the other week. its just the one pedal one with 16 mins of recording time, 11 savable phrase locations, and some drum beats. its pretty cool. id like to get a better one though but this one is pretty good for the money and size. usually ill put on a drum beat, then play some progression on guitar, plug in the bass, play a bass line, plug in the guitar and then play over the song. and because it keeps looping what you play you can harmonize with yourself while soloing or have like 12 guitar parts. its pretty fun to mess around with. theres also some way to hook up an MP3 player to it to play along or loop part of a song or what ever but i havent done that yet.
