    There are many 4/5 loop strips for under $150, it's just a matter of personal preference. That one looks just fine.

    +1 Loopmaster.

    I owned an 8 channel looper with a tuner out and master bypass. Loved it. Only reason I sold it is I downsized my board cause it was too heavy to travel with...

    Loopmaster runs special deals frequently here on TGP as well. As far as cost efficiency you definitely want to check them out. My looper is Road Rage and it's very dependable and I love it. As far as brands though there aren't a lot of things to go wrong with a looper its a pretty simple device so you'd be fine with most all of the major brands.

    just make sure you read loop-masters FAQ before you make an order. Be ready to wait 10-12 weeks for your looper. He hand makes everything so the wait time is reasonable. If you need it now pedalgeek.com sells road rage loopers but they have less features no tuner jack or master bypass which i think should be standard on all loopers. Also nosepedal.com has a small 3 looper but they also do custom work and their prices are great if they can put a master bypass and tuner jack on one for me i think i might get one from them.

    I like the footprint of the larger road rage but man Its hard to beat the price for the loopmaster 130 for 7 loops...

    is there really a 10 week turnaround? I know that's what strymond says about the timeline but i got mine in 3 weeks..
