      An amazingly simple looper made by guitarists - for guitarists.

      Ditto Looper is the looper you try once and love for life. TC Electronics have taken all that is good about loopers, trimmed away all the non-essential, mood-killing tech hoopla and ended up with a looper that is intuitive, tons of fun, sounds great and doesn't break the bank.

      Its 'one knob' button may seem like a minimalist approach, but all the essentials are there: record, undo/redo, stop and erase are all accessed via different foot-commands that always make sense, whether you are building loops, changing from one part to the next (we're looking at you, live performers) or adding layers to a song. Tone quality should still always be priority number one so that's why the loops produced are in 24 bit uncompressed high quality audio.

      Make looping as easy as 1-2-3. No hassle or needlessly complicated stuff, Ditto Looper is boiled down to the essentials and makes control intuitive yet flexible, so guitarists can focus on what matters most: playing and performing. You press once to record, press once again to play the loop. Press once to add another layer of sounds (something you can keep repeating until you run out of ideas). You press and hold to Undo a layer and press and hold again to Redo. Press twice to stop, after which you can press and hold to clear the loop.

      The Ditto Looper has a ton of great features aside from its simple layout and controls. It provides 5 minutes of looping time which is more than you’ll ever need and unlimited overdubs. It has an ultrasmall footprint and takes up almost zero space on your pedalboard, saving you precious realestate. It’s great for quickly getting rid of parts you aren't feeling, but it's been found that many people actually use this to change parts during live performance, say from verse to chorus Ditto works great in either scenario. The single knob allows you to set the level of your loops as a subtle background or a mindblowing performance.

      In addition the Ditto Looper always let’s your ‘dry sound’ pass without ever converting it to digital, keeping your original tone just that original and purely as you intended it coming through with zero latency. And when it's bypassed, it’s REALLY off. The Ditto Looper also stores your loops when you power down or disconnect the power plug. This means absolutely zero worries, as the music you’ve created stays stored and is ready to go when you need it whether you're just jamming on ideas, rehearsal, live performance or studio.

      The Ditto Looper is an amazing addition to the looper world. This is the looper for the guitarist who just needs a loop. No menus and arrays of complicated settings. You can read the "manual" and learn how to use it in moments and you are on to your first session with it. My first session was over 2 hours without looking up. This thing is so fun to use. I owned the Loop Station, which was great, but quite complicated and overboard for what I needed. This is PERFECT!

      The Ditto is great as far as it's small size, length of loop, etc., but I prefer my two button looper. As a solo performer who is trying to be as discreet as possible with the loop, I found it very difficult to stay cleanly with the beat, having to stomp once, then again and hold to remove a loop. I guess it's just me but I'll stay with my oversized, multi function looper.

          Comments about TC Electronic Ditto Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

          I loved this little unit at first, but I quickly discovered you get what you pay for. My unit stopped working after only 3 months of light use. Very disappointing!

          The sound quality is excellent, but I found using this looper in live situations is very challenging. Yes, it is simple to use, but it only has one foot switch, which means no dedicated "Stop' button. To stop you have to press the foot switch twice in quick succession. If you're not fast enough between clicks, the unit reads it as two separate commands and instead of stopping it will go into Record or Play mode. If you really want to a buy a Ditto Looper, I would definitely recommend getting the newer version with the dedicated "Stop" switch.

          Comments about TC Electronic Ditto Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

          I liked this unit at first... the sound quality is excellent and for simple looping applications, like personal solo practice, it worked fine... until it broke. After just 3 months of light use, the thing is not working right. (The foot switch works intermittently or not at all). Very disappointed!

          Beyond that, I didn't like the looper for live use. The one button the unit offers is not very smooth, which makes closing the loop at the right spot more challenging. And then to stop the looper, you have to click the foot switch twice, but not too far apart, or the unit reads it as two separate commands. Not a good design. No wonder the newer version comes with a separate stop switch.

            Comments about TC Electronic Ditto Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

            Perfectly does what is promised. Tiny, bulletproof, ultra-simple, stellar sound quality, infinite loops that overlap seamlessly a the loop point. With just a few minutes getting the hang, I was banging out great ideas stacking bass and guit -- and recording them as demo notes on my Flip Video.

            Creatively, I was afraid I'd end up spending too much time building loops I can't store on a bare bones looper like this. Started to think I'd return it because it was a distraction...but NO WAY...after the honeymoon week where you feel compelled to use it constantly...it's becomes an indispensable go-to if bored with, or excited by, something you're practicing -- in a week, I have so many great near fully formed ideas for a CD project that just flowed out without over-thinking (like when setting up tracks just to explore a little idea). Could easily be used live if you just need something no nonsense and intuitive.

            NOTE: 5-minute record time is actually maybe a little less than I'd like available in this unit -- (the Jam Man mini, or whatever it's called, has 10 minutes, so you may want to consider that only if you need 10 minutes -- but that's a full sized pedal that does nothing the DITTO can't do -- and if you're at that point you probably actually need a more advanced and pricey looper for writing, storing, and/or performing purposes)

            But as a simple, tiny, useful, hi-fidelity, jam/idea/performance buddy that will fit on any board...you must have it. One of my best purchases -- and it leaves room for another pedal or two!

            It worked great, was easy to se and sounded wonderful ... Then just died. TC Electronic had hideous support. Wanted me to produce sales receipt after six months had gone by to prove one year warranty was in effect - it had only been on the market for eight months! never did fix or replace it. I'd NOT recommend them. Google it and you'll find the Ditto has issues and their support leaves much to be desired. Digitech is cheaper and superior.

            Great pedal, but needs 9V AC adapter

                Comments about TC Electronic Ditto Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

                This is a fun, easy pedal to play with, especially for the price. I've really enjoyed it so far, from just building loops by myself to jamming with my band. It took me a while to get the timing down but you'll figure it out pretty quickly

                However, there is one catch: YOU MUST ALSO BUY a 9V DC power supply. I didn't know this when i bought this pedal (it says it in the description so it's my fault for not buying), but luckily I already had a 9V DC adapter at home. You can buy one here: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/accessories/behringer-psu-sb-9v-dc-power-supply. The power supply is a pain, and the size of the pedal is somewhat deceiving. I would much rather in the future have them make a larger pedal with built in 9V battery.

                Overall, I've extensively enjoyed this pedal and can confidently say it was worth the price.

                I have never owned a Looper Pedal before and did not really feel a need to have one .. After getting this little marvel I wish I had gotten one a long time ago .. The workout you can get with just the pedal and yourself is fantastic.

                Finally! A looper that doesn't require a degree in rocket science! I've used the Jam-Man & Boss loopers, but they don't compare with the ease of the Ditto! If you need a quality looper you can actually use LIVE this is it! 3 easy steps to learn (about 5 minutes) and you're up and running. And,,,there's no delay on the loop! Thanks Ditto!!!!

                  I bought this pedal primarily for practicing playing leads over my own chord progressions, and it works great for that. It will take me some more time to feel comfortable enough to use it in live performance. As with any looper, you have to learn exactly when to hit the looper, and when to end it. That's not as simple as it sounds.
