Stereo Loopers with a Rhythm Guide

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for recommendations for Stereo Loopers with a Rhythm guide - preferably drum tracks.

Totally new to loopers but need something to quickly record bass and guitar for mainly practice purposes, especially looking for a looper with a drum track as I'd also like to practicing keeping good time as well.  I don't know if I'm barking up the wrong tree but I want to be able to run in stereo so I can send bass (and rhythm) to my bass amp and guitar to tube amp.  I'm really only assuming this is what the stereo function is for!

I think the obvious option for me is a Boss RC3, but they seem expensive for they are and I'm not about just the one footswitch.  Holy grail would be able to have to loop tracks (verse/chorus) or be able to switch memory slots on the fly.  Apart from the RC3, I've spotted this Donner Circle Looper on Amazon, but the reviews make it look a bit fragile: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0863JBS8S/?coliid=IBK19M441W647&colid=37QM5FL3GWZ5B&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

Thinking seriously about an older Jamman Stereo or Jamman Solo XT, but the rhythm track is a bit limited - more like a metronome.

Any suggestions welcome, looking at a max £100 budget new or used - otherwise I'd get the Boss RC10R - although that is probably too complicated for me!

Cheers for reading!

I had a NUX loop core which was pretty good for the money (drum tracks as well)

I've been interested in those but was under the impression they weren't stereo ie you couldn't have a different instrument running out of each channel, it was more two outputs and bring while to send the rhythm track only to a mixer.

It's that right?

Boss RC-300 can be had for about £300, which is dear, but it has VERY comprehensive stereo routing features. Plus it has a very useable rhythm function.

Being a total looper newb I really want to start out with something reasonably cheap and simple without too much of a learning curve.

I was leaning towards the jamman stereo, quite like the layout and functions, but the rhythm track is really limited.  For that matter the RC3 is quite limited too, but not quite as bad.

Just an update.  I saw a Boss RC10R going for a good price and impulse purchased it... whoops.

It turns out its actually just what I need, although probably the donner circle looper above would have worked too.

Only had a quick play so far, but pretty intuitive and it will make a fantastic practice tool for guitar and bass.
