Simple, small, and effective looper pedal
I bought this as a gift. It arrived within the estimated time, and the recipient loved it.
La Vergne, TN
I'm using the Ditto looper mainly to jam at home and with my band, also to help me shape pieces of music I'm working on by looping riffs or chord sequences and adding arrangements and details. Although I've been playing guitar for almost 15 years, I had never used loop pedals before and it's been a real game changer for me in that aspect. It's compact, really easy to use and so inexpensive I think can suit any budget (and I mean it because my budget for gear is usually pretty tight ^_^). Also it seems to have been built to last a million years. What's not so great about it? Actually, I don't think I could ask for more for that money.

Simple yet effective looper pedal with enough storage for an endless loop. If you are looking for a simple looper that will mostly be used for practice this is a great choice. The signal remains as clear as possible, unlock some loopers that turn your signal from crunchy, to plastic. While not gig worthy per say, this pedal will provide users with a quality that will not disappoint. *Hands on review by Christopher M. from store 57 in Indianapolis.
I wanna use it in practice, but I haven't built a pedal board yet. So there's power supply issue. It'd be great to have it as a package when purchasing. It's compact, sounds nice, but it suffers from inconvenience of the need of a power supply. I'd trade off size with a battery compartment. After all, it's supposed to be convenient, "easy to use", which means you don't need the extra power!
I hate writing this review because in the past TC Electronic has made me happy but this will probably be the last product I buy from this vendor. Here is my story on the Ditto Looper and a comparison of its closest competitor. I was torn between the Ditto Looper and this products leading competitor, the DigiTech JamMan Express XT. From the moment I arrived home with the Ditto Looper I regretted my decision. The Ditto looper has in the past been given a lot respect, In fact for a low-cost looper designed for guitarist by guitarist, the Ditto was the "go to" product. Sadly, TC Electronic's Ditto product has been superseded in every category by the JamMan Express XT. DigiTech has innovated in every category and the JamMan Express losses nothing in comparison to the Ditto. Here are the differences: The JamMan Express XT has a more intuitive interface (it's actually simpler than the Ditto thanks to the's multi-LED light display which makes it clear what's going on). The JamMan Express XT offers twice the loop time (10 minutes vs 5 with the Ditto) the JamMan Express is stereo out, the Ditto mono. The JamMan Express XT does not require an AC adapter. When you get it home and realize the music store is closed and you have a gig in half an hour, you can simply go buy a 9V battery. The Ditto in contrast only works with a 9V AC adapter. What's more, TC Electronic doesn't even make a proper AC adapter for this unit. The manual (which I had to find on-line) states "use a general purpose 9V AC adapter". On the bottom of the Ditto it states that it wants DC/100mA. You can't buy one of those in the US. Good luck finding a perfect adapter, the best I could do was a 9V DC/300mA which seems to work ok but it's a generic AC adapter that cost me eight dollars. Multi-adapters like those sold at most big-box retailers with an electronics section cause noise and do not work properly. I would be ok with the Ditto not coming with an AC adapter if it had a battery option, but it does not. So this is a huge inconvenience, annoyance and huge design flaw by a company with enough experience to know much better. Three more important things that make the JamMan Express XT a superior buy IMO. The JamMan Express XT comes with a product manual. The product isn't difficult to operate at all, but at least you get a piece of paper in the box that explains how the device works. The Ditto Looper does not come with any printed manual. You have to go to the manufactures website and download a PDF. The JamMan Express XT lets you sync with other JamMan looper products so your bass player, second guitarist, etc... can keep loops in sync on stage (awesome, awesome feature... yeah the Ditto Looper doesn't do that). Last but not least, the Ditto Looper cost 30% more than the JamMan Express. Across the board, the Ditto looper has been turned into a dinosaur by competition. If you are reading positive reviews, note that the JamMan Express XT was released late 2013. TC Electronic knew this was coming and simply did not have the engineering expertise to compete or perhaps they were too arrogant to think the extra features of the competitors product made it worth their time. Regardless, It's too expensive and it's lack of certain basic things (product manual, battery powered option) make it a infuriating product to own. I've written the manufacture and expressed by views in both tactful and tactless ways because the Ditto has made be very, very angry. I'm giving it two stars instead of one only because the build quality is high as with most TC Electronic products, but that is not enough here. Any product on the market has to be reviewed in contrast to the competition and this little guy just doesn't stack up anymore.
Absolutely fantastic for what it is. No bells and whistles or beats, but I'd take the ditto over the RC-3,30, or even 300 everyday. The manual is about the size of a postage stamp and that's all you need. Doesn't take a battery, but that's no issue for me anyway.
Great little product. Super easy to use. This is my first looper type product, so I was intimidated by the complexity of most loopers. The ditto makes it easy. I have only used it at home to create a quick backing track to jam against, but for that purpose it is awesome. ~
I loved the idea of this pedal since hearing about it a few months ago. I played with it at Sam Ash for an hour or so and liked it more and more the longer I played with it. I found myself thinking I knew how to play lead with my rythym but the DITTO showed me I was a few notes off. I use it to instantly observe my tone and find mistakes I otherwise would not have found. That was a suprising quality, it is a GREAT learning tool for beginners to hendrix. Of course it has all the great qualities every looper provides but the simplicity trumps all. I worked at a music store in college and as a guitar player/pedal junkie I always had trouble showing customers how to use loopers....the DITTO doesn't even need an instruction book. You can find one online if need be though. I truly think I am about to climb a huge stepping stone in my playing thanks to this pedal. It also has great use in my 2 piece band, I will play a bass riff and let it loop while I grab my guitar and jam out. It also has an undo/redo feature which is good for verse/chorus changing. Thank you TC Electronics and Sam Ash! Dylan Gaffin
