It seemed to me that the Echo Pro didn't really add much looping functions 
beyond what the DL4 does already. More loop time is about it. If you 
already have 2 DL4's, you might not really gain much by getting two echo

I think Gibson is starting up some European distributors, but I don't know 
the details. You might want contact them and ask about it.
