Great value 2 loop (of different lengths) looper
I've had my Vox Lil Looper for over 3 years and I'm still using it. I'm about the only person on the local music scene using one, as it seems everyone else goes for the more expensive Boss ones (probably because Ed Sheeran had one, admittedly the Boss ones have some advantages over the Vox). But unlike the similar 2 pedal Boss looper, the Vox Lil Looper supports 2 loops of different lengths, (the Boss RC-30 only supports 2 loops of the same length), and for me this is the killer feature of the Vox. Do a short drum/bass loop, then do a longer chord progression 2nd loop. The Vox only has one input, but you can work around this with a micro-mixer on your pedal board to open up more inputs. If you are used to Boss loopers, or particular loop arrangements, be aware that this Vox looper, like some other loopers, handles loop stop and starts differently, if you stop a loop on the Vox it continues playing silently until you start it again, and it will re-start where it is currently playing silently, I think Boss loopers always start at the start of the loop (which admittedly I think is the better option). Personally I do not use the white dial top left fx features so I can't comment on those, but obviously I think the looper is great value even if it didn't have that dial. The only other similarly priced loopers I've seen that are comparable to the Vox in terms of the all important 2 loops of different lengths feature, are 2 synched Digitech JamMan Express XTs, and the recently introduced Ditto X4. If you want to see the Vox Lil Looper in action for live performances just search for Paul Strummer live looped on youtube.
