E-BOOK COMING SOON !!!

I will be writing an ebook very soon on how to setup a pedal board correctly from start to finish and go into detail about combining pedals and using loopers.

I do make loopers on request and I will be keeping them in stock soon so check back often or if you are interested in a looper then let me know. ( I am speaking of loopers that loop the signal path not the looper that records sound and then loops.

Here is my first single looper. single looper,effects pedals,guitar pedals
