What's a loop pedal?
Most stompbox pedals are supposed to alter and enhance your existing tone, but loop pedals are different. They let you record a short musical phrase, then automatically play it back, leaving you free to jam along with the instant accompaniment. So, who needs a loop pedal? Maybe you just moved to a new place and haven't met any local musicians yet. Maybe you're a singer/songwriter who wants to fill-out the sound but keep the act small and stealthy. Maybe you're an egomaniac who just can't trust anyone else to back you up properly. Let's hope not. In any case, DigiTech's JamMan pedal handles all the traditional looping duties, with some added new features for even more fun.

Expanded storage holds more loops
Loop pedals have been around a long time. In fact, DigiTech's original PDS800 was first developed more than twenty years ago. At the time, it stored about eight seconds of audio. With today's new digital storage technology, eight seconds seems pretty small. The JamMan includes a 1 GB Compact Flash card, which holds over 24 minutes of sound. Jump up to the maximum 2GB capacity, and you can store more than six hours of looped audio! When you consider most loop patterns are only four to sixteen bars long, and DigiTech will store 99 loops on a card, you can build up a pretty impressive set list. From small, repeatable phrases, to full-length backing tracks, the JamMan does it all!

A plethora of ports for all your input sources
The JamMan features several input connections for capturing and looping all of your music. Use the 1/4-inch instrument input with adjustable level control to get a solid signal from guitars, basses, and keyboards. You can bang out a bongo beat on your acoustic guitar, then lay down a chord progression as it loops. Solo over that, and your song is starting to come together. Plug a microphone into the XLR input and add a melody, then stack some backing harmonies. Pretty soon, you've got a full choir behind you. Want to jam along with your favorite MP3 or CD tracks? No problem. The miniplug input accepts any line-level source, and it even includes a vocal remover for use as your own personal karaoke machine. Need more space? The onboard USB connection lets you export and manage all your loops, right on your computer.

Flexible tempo and metronome for more creative possibilities
There are plenty of ways to experiment with loop layering, but the JamMan's additional features really open up the creative possibilities. Let's say you've just laid down some loops, but your adrenaline was pumping and now it's feeling a little rushed. Just slow down the tempo, and all the loops respond. There's no need to search for a new key, because the pitch is not changed. You can speed things up just as easily. If you're having a tough time nailing a tricky riff, just record it at a comfortable tempo, then crank it back up to speed. The built-in metronome with multiple time signatures will keep you locked into the groove as you stack your parts. Each loop can be set to have between two and fifteen beats per measure, and you can use either a basic click track or the high-quality onboard drum samples to get you in the pocket.

Hands-free operation with optional footswitch
For practice or recording purposes, the JamMan gives you everything you need to loop your music, right out of the box. If you plan to play live, though, you may want to add the optional FS3X footswitch for on-the-fly, hands-free operation. With the FS3X, you can set up the auto-record function to store your next loop as soon as you start playing. It also lets you scroll through your loop locations in memory, so you can add or subtract parts as you go, without stopping the live performance. With 99 available loops, you have the flexibility to tailor your performance to any situation. If the crowd is into the acoustic part of your set, keep things simple with a chord progression, a three-part harmony, and a little solo work. If they're responding more to a full-band sound, cue up a drum groove, bass line, and that funky horn part you've been saving for a special occasion. There's no way all those musicians would fit up on the little coffee house stage, but the JamMan lets you carry the whole band around in your gig bag!

4.5 out of 5 (101 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Trust me.......really......I own one....... I use it....... At every rehersal........at gig after gig..........I use it to make"
Sound: This unit is awesome! I don't pre-record any of my loops. Instead, I take an effects send from each channel of my mixer that I want to include in the loop, and record it live, then play it back and add whatever else I want. The playback sounds identical to the original once you get all the levels set. Feature: The only drawback I have found so far is that you cannot sync the looper with drum machines, but there are ways around that! C'mon....musicians are supposed to be creative! Ease of Use: VERY easy to use. I had to give it a "9" because of the sync issue noted above, but once I got that problem worked out everything else was a piece of cake. The only other minor problem I would like to see changed is that you need to hold down the pedal for a few seconds to erase a loop, and watch for an LED to flash indicating the loop is erased. For live performance, an instant erase feature would be nice Quality: The only problem I have seen is that the output level pot was a bit erratic in the mid position. I overcame that by running it at full output and adjusting the input trim on my mixer. Other than that, it appears to be built like a tank! I have a rather elaborate set-up, and I often need to stomp on two pedals at once. I say "stomp" because to make sure I get both pedals with one foot, I position them very close together, and STOMP! I've been stomping the s**t out of this pedal for over a year now with no problems. My tech says in his experience that Digitech has had some internal reliability problems with some of thier other gear so I will probably get another unit as a backup just in case. Value: Without a doubt. There is another company producing a similar product, and from my experience, and from what I had heard from other people, the Digitech is the one to get. (Just to be fair, I do own a lot of gear made by the other company, and it is great stuff!) Manufacturer Support: I was unable to locate the auxilary footswitch that goes with this looper, so I called Digitech and they emailed me a schematic so I could build my own! BTW....it is not just a basic switch. There are some diodes that allow 2 switches to perform several functions. The Wow Factor: This piece of equipment has made a tremendous improvement in my act. I would use it even if it was flaming pink and took up more room than my FOH speakers and ate 9 volt batteries like candy. But it doesn't. It just sits on my pedal board waiting to be stomped on so it can do it's job Overall: If my looper was ever "lost" (AKA stolen!) I would immediatly go out and buy another one, and then hunt down the bastard that stole my first one and beat the living shi.......Opps, sorry! Really, I am always looking for improvements in equipment since I do this for a living, but for now, I don't see anything that would work any better than the Jam Man. So far I am 100% satisfied.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "BEST LOOPER UNDER $300"
Sound: Whatever you play through this (guitars, vocals, pre-recorded cd or mp3 tracks) you get back in clarity with its cd quality 44.1kHz sampling rate. Sounds great straight to my Marshall AS80R acoustic amp or through Sony headphones. Excellent sound for stage, studio and practice. The sound doesn't degrade either, as you stack loops on top of eachother. Very convincing realistic sound-on-sound looping. Feature: Compared to the other "red box" looper, the JamMan wins hands down in the features department! With the XLR input, USB and headphone outputs, and Compact Flash upgradeable storage - this unit has the best (and most) features in its class and price range. Although, I give a it 9 because it doesn't have the fade-out and reverse loop features like the "red box". I'll just have to use my volume pedal to fade out when needed. Side note: Digitech recommends the FS300 footpedal with this unit, however the GNXFC footpedal will also work with the JamMan. Quality: Construction seems very solid and stable, so far. Haven't gigged with it yet, but definitely intend to. That's why I bought it! Value: If you're thinking about getting into looping to practice and perform, this pedal is a great value! It's not in the same caliber as the Echoplex or the Repeater(costing 3 or more times as much), but it's a great entry-level introductory pedal to the fun and creative world of looping. Manufacturer Support: Digitech has one of the best user-friendly websites for their products. I also own the GNX4 and Distortion Factory, and there's a wealth of information (tutorials, manuals and user forums) to support their products. There's even a JamMan forum recently created, where users can ask questions or exchange ideas. Does Boss have that for their products? That'll be a big fat NO. The Wow Factor: I own it. The RC20XL is $5 less. Splurge! Spend the extra $5 and get a whole mess of additional features over that "red box"! It even comes with the power supply. You'll have to spend another $20 to get that from Boss. So, you're essentially getting more for your money with the Digitech JamMan! Overall: Currently, the best looper available for under $300. Its worth every penny. You'll have tons of fun playing, creating and performing with the Digitech JamMan!
