I have never experienced this with any of the
looping devices I've owned and used: Boomerang, RC-20, Echoplexes, RC-20.
The Boomerang tended to generate a bit of hiss for me, but I was able to
minimize by ensure my levels were relatively hot on the unit.
Where are you running the Boomerang in your signal
chain? You ran an A/B test and demonstrated the Boomerang is actually
contributing to the thinning? It could be a signal chain gain thing.
Though not stellar, I recall the specs on that unit (bit rate and
frequency range) were enough to not significantly alter the tone of

Subject: Sound quality of various
I haven't posted in quite some time, but now I'm
back to bother you all with my silly questions.
I use a Boomerang, and although it's an easy unit
to use I've noticed that there is a noticeable "tinniness" to the playback. Of
course, I have it set for highest quality.
I've also noticed this on other looping devices.
For example, my guitar teacher has an RC-50 which he just has hooked up
to a little practice amp, I still notice a slight thinning out of the playback
Is this common to all looping devices? Is there
any way around this such as compensating with some kind of eq?
Thanks, and I apologize because I know my
questions are very basic.
