    Top 10 Best Looper Pedals in the UK 2020 (Boss, Electro Harmonix and More)

    Whilst looper pedals aren’t often on the top of a guitarist’s wish list they are an invaluable tool that can be used for any style of playing. This pedal will essentially record a section of your riff or chord progression, then play it back to you. This frees you up to play a second riff, a third and so on, all of which will be layered on top of the original. These pedals can add a tremendous amount of depth to one’s live set, as well as giving you a ‘second’ guitar player when you’re practising at home. The difficulty lies in finding the right one. In this article we go over footswitches, loop length and much more to help make your decision that much easier. With options to suit new players finding their feet and ones for seasoned pros, we've ranked the top 10 best in the UK on Amazon and Gear4Music!
