MXR Clone Looper

New small form factor looper with some interesting capabilities

Industry News September 5, 2019

MXR have announced a new little looper that immediately caught my eye not really because of its functionality or anything groundbreaking but because they specifically call out it’s ability to take a very hot signal without distorting.

One of the biggest issues ive run into with all of the previous loop pedals that I’ve used was that when you drive a hot fuzz into the looper the A/D conversion clips and that is usually a very unpleasant type of clipping which ends up defeating the purpose of driving a tube amp since you end up driving it with this gross clipped signal.

This new release at $149 sounds like a really great solution to that, and would let me run my existing looper at the start of the chain, and then this at the end! What a magical time we live in!

This little guy should be available in October from MXR / whatever place you buy pedals. I’ll update this with an amazon link once it exists. Get more info from the source.
