    Duuhuuude! I've got a huge stack of essays to grade, and you're just not helping my distractability factor!!!! The filter effects just give that extra little push over the edge...

    Sounds great! You're diggin' the Headrush? Any other recs for an affordable, good sounding looper?

    Scottl - You'd have a blast for sure. Either as a practice/jam tool or for building up pads and soundscapes, loopers are BIG fun. :D Check out Splatt's, (D.Torn's) instructional vid for some serious inspiration there.

    vladorg - Here's the rundown on the set-up:

    I'm using two amps with an old Morely A+B A/B box. The opening clean playing is through both amps. The loop is running through a '62 Princeton set with some light trem. The lead is through a '64 Princeton reverb which I'm driving with a Purple Plexi, Valveboy, tc para-eq and a Maxon AD-900 delay.


    Here's a minute of that same rig, but with a GVCG tele:

    I've been wanting a DL4 since they came out, but reliability issues have kept me apprehensive so far... Please tell me I'm being stupid (if for no other reason because you can!) and that I should get a DL4 immediately.

    (not stupid) :)

    I'm on my second DL-4. Mine and a buddy's both suffered mechanical failures on the footstitches.

    Here's another little loop-jam with the above rig. The loop is based on the soul hit "Clean-up Lady" modulated down to E. The Purple Plexi is on the whole time.

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8970133535425752938

    The beginning of the clip really shows the clarity of the rolled back tones with the Purple Plexi. Later, with the volume wide open there's a deep growl that the PP brings out of my tele through my rig. Big fun.

    :)

    I have a head rush 1 and its great. I have a RC 20xl also but to me even with the shorter time I use the head rush more. Does the newer headrush have a longer loop time if so I gotta get one.
    Great video and playing .

    edwarddavis - The Headrush E2 can loop up to 35 seconds. This was the main reason I wanted to try it, so I could get a full chorus and verse into a loop.

    I have an RC-20 also, but I'm thinking about selling it. The RC-20 is cool if you need to store different loops, but I'm happier with the sound and ease of use of the E2. I'm still looking forward to the Boomerang 3.0 hopefully being released early this winter.



    Thanks for checking out the vids and happy looping y'all .
    :)
