View Full Version : Head Rush, Boomerang or RC20 - Why dont you have one
12-09-2007, 05:35 AM
I think these pedals are the greatest , some better than others but I can not see why any serious guitar player would not get one if they could. I dont play one live but I never play at home with put one hooked up.
Not counting being broke - why would you not have a loop station type pedal , I could not live with out one. I also think the headrush pedals , I have both are great wsih they had a longer recording time but they still are great pedals and the delays are great too.
Anybody have any inside info when the newer boomerang is coming out or a better headrush.
I had a few emails from boomrang about it coming but still have not seen one.

I've owned a Boomerang since 1994 or so.. Love it. Whether I'm making weird noises (Mostly...) or just practicing leads over some chord changes it works great.

I used my DL4 for looping in the live setting for the longest time. When I stopped playing live, I ended up buying an RC-20XL, something I should have done when I was playing out - I wish I had been able to use the DL4's delays and the RC-20XL together, but alas.
I sold the RC-20XL earlier this year to help fund a new guitar, but plan on picking up the new Boomerang when it is a available! I love loopers!
Digitech JamMan on my board. I don't really use it for looping though. I am the only guitar player in the band and I use it for playing back other guitar parts in a live situation. Textures or certain lead lines that really make the song happen. Stuff like that. Also it is a great tool for recording ideas quick when I am practicing.
I've been using my Headrush a lot lately for echo as well as looping - a really useful bit of kit.

I use my RC20xl all the time... when I'm at home I usually practice with it and use it to help with composing new stuff.. it's great for coming up with harmony parts and experimenting with ideas... it's a great pedal and I think every guitarist should have a looper...

I had an RC20 and liked it so much I traded it in on the RC50 and wow I am really digging this thing. Great pedal for playing and practicing.

I've been through a few looping pedals (dl-4, dd-20, maneco, rc-20), and currently have an rc-2. I miss having start-stop control so I may have to buy a latching switch, or go back to something else.
Regardless, I use a looper more than any other pedal. In a perfect world, I'd have an rc-50, EH2880, or something similar.

I'd be interested in hearing how you guys are using yours. I have an RC-2, and any loop I record to solo over just disappears when I begin playing.
I typically create songs with mine by laying down a melodic riff, then doing some arpeggios or weird open chordings over it.
My tone is usually rounded (neck pickup-tone rolled back a bit).. especially for the melodic base, then I typically switch to a center position and add more highs so each layer mixes well. If I need more definition, I'll throw some bridge pup sounds in there.
I think that's the key to making each of them meld together, yet stand out. You have to create various complimenting tones. It's rather easy with a semi-hollow gibson, delay, and a mild OD;)
