Re: Zoom 2100 or Headrush

I have very little experience with the Zoom 2100 so I can't give an honest
comparative analysis. Everything I initially said about the Headrush (see
the Loopers page) still holds true. The one aspect I've really enjoyed is
the Tape Echo mode and the Damping function which allows for the delay
feedback signal to be softened. I use my Headrush in conjunction with a DOD
Dimension 12 and, by using the damping, I can emphasize one loop over
another. Of course, the extra delay time is a major plus as well.
