Re: First Looper Reminiscence

First looper was an Ibanez Analog delay pedal, bought in 1980. Used 
it on my ARP Axxe. Still have both of 'em.

Then followed by a Digitech rackmount digital delay. 1 sec I think. 
Seemed miraculous that it could hold a loop forever without degrading 
like the analog delay (who would guess that 20 years later, we'd be 
making complex digital electronics to emulate that degradation?). 
 From there through 2-sec and 8-sec stompboxes. Then to a Lex 
LXP-5/MRC combo (still got). Then JamMan.
