True Bypass Looper
I live in the UK and I'm trying to find where to buy a true bypass looper for my board, but I can only find stores in America and Australia! Does anyone know of any European stores?
My main option currently is loopmaster as the shipping isn't too expensive - anyone have any experience with them?
Unfortunately a Timon Klein would be too expensive!
Have you looked into This1sMyne (sp?). He(they) does a lot of custom stuff, so depending on what you need he may be able to get it to you reasonably.
Another one to check out would be loooper.com
They make quality stuff, sell it pretty cheap, and international shipping looks pretty reasonable.
Thanks guys, I particularly like the This1sMyne looper because of the extras you can add onto it!
Time to start saving
I bought my first looper by loopmaster pedals, but Timon is a personal friend of mine and got pissed off when he saw it, so I bought one from him at a discount. Timons is nice, but the loopmaster one works perfectly just as well.

Buzz Electronics I ordered one off their ebay site the other day, it hasnt came yet but they are really cheap and look pretty good quality.
They are really helpful aswell if you want anything extras on it. You can choose the LED colour from green, yellow, blue and red and you can choose whatever combination and then i got him to add a tuner mute for an extra £5. Overall it came to only £105 for 8 loops and a tuner mute. Not bad
There's a guy who posts on the Musicradar forums who makes kits for bypass loopers:
As guitar DIY projects go, it's a pretty simple one as long as you know which end of a soldering iron not to touch
...and IMO, basic soldering is a great skill for a guitar player to learn- it'll save you a fortune in simple little repairs and modifications that a shop will charge you for doing.
