    A la Boss Rc3, w/ tempo function. Cheap, open box, new, or mint used.

    I'd suggest getting the Trio+. I like it a lot better than the RC2 (RC3) interface.

    Ditto for ease.
    I've tried a few. I bought 2 RC3's but returned them immediately. Found them hard to use live. Maybe it's just me.
    I have two Dittos I use live, I also have a Digitech Jam Man that works well.

    I've been through a few, but I've been really happy with the MXR Clone Looper for a good while now. It's especially versatile with an extra CTRL switch.

    Looked @ the trio+, just what I need. Thomanns has it for $169 +$25 next day shipping. Anyone in the States have experience w/ them? How can they sell them so much cheaper than anyone else?

    Thomann is probably the biggest online guitar shop in Europe selling internationally.
    When they buy or sell it’s in bulk, large quantities. Same with shipping.
    The more items they move, the better the deal they’re able to negotiate. Which all translates to better prices for the customers.

    I'm liking the Trio+, that insta-band feature is just what I need.

    yeah, they must be moving tons. The price on the Trio+ is 1/2 what the usual suspects charge here in the States. They might be my new go-to. Zach at sweetwater is gonna be mad.

    That’s real cheap, most $300 plus. $199 trio plus bundle looks like just an added foot switch. I was looking at those anyway and almost bought one for $269 open box. Thanks for the info.

    TC Electronics Ditto is by far the best imo....

    Easy to use, sounds fantastic, is small and has all the features you need :D

    yw, np. Just don't buy mine.

    And yeah, I don't know how they can sell @ 50% of everyone else, but I'll run w/ it like I stole it, which, well,,, I kind of am...

    Same, 'til the local jams start kickin' again, I'm in the same boat. That's how I was getting gigs 'til something steady materialized. What sold me is the drums/bass. Ideal for me to lay guitar, then harp over. That, and it allows you to run to a separate amp & not affect guitar, plus built in fx loop.
