I remember seeing Paul Dresher (one of the premier loopers for sure) with
his guitar goodies/four track deck looping gear about 10-12 years back.  He
had about 24 (metallic and homemade-looking) volume pedals and I could see
that he was getting pretty sensitive control via the footgearless method.
He had a large asian-style woven mat under these and himself, which I
assumed kept his toesies from getting grounded to the concrete....
