Product Description

The Boomerang III Loop Station provides the same serial play style as the Boomerang+, where loops play-out one after another, but also adds Serial Master Play Style where you can sync a master loop (whichever loop is recorded first becomes the master) to play simultaneously with another loops in the series. The Boomerang III can create rhythmic backgrounds behind the melodic loops to create a deep sounding ambience especially for solo players.

Boomerang is offering an upgrade to Boomerang III owners after Version 2's planned release in June 2010. Here's what you'll get with the FREE Version 2 upgrade:
- Sync Play Style
- All loops can play simultaneously and are synced so they stay together
- Free Play Style
- All loops can play simultaneously and are NOT synced
- Great for creating ambient soundscapes

Features

- Loop 3 or 4 Sampled Phrases while adding a part or stacking loops
- Undo/Redo loops or the last part of a stacked loop
- Erasing of loops one at a time or all at once even while another plays
- Loop copying even while its actively playing
- Copy Live enables re-sampling where the pedal's output is routed to the loop
- Loops can be played at half speed and an octave lower
- Reverse loops to have them played backwards
- 48KHz or 24KHz sample rates both with 20 bit samples
- Thru signal is always 48KHz with 24 bit samples

Other features include Thru Mute Function that turns off through signal, Expression Pedal Volume Control where you can connect an optional expression pedal and it will be the master playback volume control, Loop Playback Volume Knob to adjust the loop playback volume, Decay Rate Knob for setting the rate at which earlier parts fade when they are added and Stereo or Mono recording and playback depending completely on which of the Smart Jacks you use. Smart Jacks sense which jacks are being used and provides different signal routing options.

Loop options include Once where a loop plays one time through then stops or if already playing, it stops at its end. Fade allows loops fade in or out with one button press; fades can be 3 to 43 seconds. Reverse Solo is an effect that enables you to create reverse leads live.

Power supply is included. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Boomerang products.

4.5 out of 5 (10 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"My new box of Voodoo magic!"
Sound: I don't normally write user reviews, but I was so blown away with this looper that I felt the urge to give an opinion. This is the first and last looper I'm going to buy (unless its gets stolen?!) The sound quality is the same back as you put in, even when layering a lot of parts. I live and work as a Singer/Guitarist in England, so it was a bit of a mission to get one of these. I'm glad i did! I only spent a couple of seconds reading the manual, before I throwing it on the floor and starting messing with it. This pedal is now the reason I've got back into solo gigs again (that including the fact you don't have to pay it after the gig!) It's so simple to use. I took a risk on this as there are no stores selling these in the UK, so I couldn't even try it first! In my opinion, if you are planning on live looping and you're looking at getting a Boss RC-50, then I suggest trying the Boomerang also. The Boss has loads more features in terms of being able to for example, save loops and import them after and click tracks/drums etc. However, I need to be able to create loops very quickly and operate the looper,sing and play guitar all at the same time, this is where the Boomerang shines. Feature: The switches are very low to the board, so its easier to get the loops tight. The Boss pedals had much further to travel which concerned me. The layout is very simple as there are no 'menus' as with LCD screens, just LED's and knobs & switches. Very 'Retro', but very simple. Quality: I rate this build quality as a nine, simply because I would like to have one made totally of metal, as I fear the day that I break it! Value: Yes its expensive compared to other loopers, but if you want a live tool without the hassle of reading a 500 page user guide and sound quality issues, then buy one of these. I'm off to bed! :-) Manufacturer Support: I emailed Mike who designed these and he was very helpful.

Sound: The sound quality is much better than any of the other phrase loopers out there right now. I liked the jam man and the boss loopers, but I really think for live situations the sound of the boomerang is top notch. The only issue is setting the volume of the loop, which is controlled by a knob for each loop channel. Feature: The extra features are many and fantastic. I love the different loop modes but find myself using the verse/chorus/bridge mode more than the master loop. Reverse is way cool and much more useful than the reverse on the memory man w/ hazarai. Ease of Use: Absolutely the easiest loop pedal to use period. The buttons are much different than the others and are extremely sensitive. You can use it right out of the box and have no trouble whatsoever. My band was able to play to looped 2nd and 3rd guitar parts no problem first rehearsal. It can que up loops as well which really lowers the amount of concentration and tap dancing needed. You can que the next part of the song as soon as one starts and then go back to concentrating on your music instead of your pedalboard. Quality: Heavy duty and awesome. I love Boomerang's products and see this pedal lasting a long time. Value: Expensive, maybe. Worth it, definitely. Trust me, it is not worth the hassle that comes with cheaper loops pedals. The Wow Factor: It is big and gorgeous. It is a dark gray wedge with lots of lights. Overall: I recommend this pedal to anyway that wants a live looping tool.
