I'm not a fan but I thought you might be interested in this little
snippet from a Morse interview in the Oct' 96 issue of Guitar Shop.

"I have a bunch of Ernie Ball volume pedals. There's this one section
when I play a little rhythm part and I alternate using either a modified
Lexicon PCM 42 with extra memory for the repeat hold or a JamMan. The
JamMan works great, as far as putting a loop in of any length. It
doesn't allow you to layer the loops as seamlessly from one to another
as a regular delay would."

Also he says he uses a PCM 41 for short delays and a GSP-21 preset for
long delays...

Hope that was of some interest... :)
