Is Jamman Solo the best loop pedal?

Updated on September 11, 2014

What the big deal is ? Let me suggest that looping with a stomp-box like this one will make you a better musician because:

  • you can practice more (at home or alone in the studio)
  • you will be able to deliver a thicker sounds-cape on stage
  • you may discover new dimensions of your music in the multiple layerverse

Seriously though, if you walk into any studio or talk to serious guitar players you'll find that a looper of some sort is a must-have piece of equipment.

Here is another bit I fell in love with on the Yaman Solo box: this is a loop pedal with pre-loaded drum loops! Nothing fancy but enough to make your jamming session potentially endless without the drummer loosing a beat. (I used to be a band drummer.. jam sessions were an utter bore because all the players wanted to solo and just have backing beats, like forever..)


Just looking over the specs hints at what this box can do: stereo sampling, 30 minute capacity, USB and micro SD slots, jam manager software, auto quantize, etc.

So is it the best guitar loop box? Nobody can tell you that because the tools you choose use to perform your music on is always going to be a matter of personal choice based on:

  1. if you like the sound
  2. if the style (color, knobs, displays, etc) makes you feel inspired
  3. how much you can spend

A loop machine doesn't alter the sound much so we can strike that from the list. Personally, I like the look so that's a plus, and the Solo XT is currently on sale. Yay, it fits my kit!

The time when you had to rely on utterly complicated rack samplers just to have a good jam session with yourself is over,

Make up your own mind by checking out some reviews of the top rated looper Jamman Solo XT.

Look closely and you'll see this one in the above video. It's a good, simple, reliable and cheap switchboard.


Keep an eye on the small windows that show when they step in and out of loop recording mode and add layers onto the loop!

It's is a pretty good demonstration of what you can do with a pair of pedals.
