  Actually, Andre, I feel your comments were fairly even handed and
honest, and I thank you for that. We don't offer the deepest unit or
have the highest sampling rate, but do offer a good sounding unit that
has a lot of features for the money. Also, the Rang has a much longer
recording time than the other loopers. We are planning a software
release around June that will include selectable decay rates and some
other useful features.

  I know you meant the Rang is $150 to $200 "less" than the Echoplex,
not "more". With the necessary pedal for the Echoplex the Rang is $250
to $300 less. And the standard Boomerang Phrase Sampler records for 32
seconds (1 minute on low sample rate), while the standard Echoplex
records for 12 seconds.

  Yeah, me too.
