Product Description

Boomerang III Phrase Sampler (E-156) This powerful pedal continues the Boomerang tradition of a simple user interface but adds many new features customers have requested. It records in true stereo (or mono), and has over 23 minutes of mono recording at 24KHz/16 bits and over 9 minutes at 48KHz/20 bits. There are 6 independent loops that can be played sequentially (verse/chorus/bridge use) or simultaneously. In the latter mode the loops may be synched or played totally independent from each other. After the primary loop is recorded, there are additional ‘layers’ that can be recorded. The layers can be silenced, played or re-recorded. Additional material may be stacked on (added to) any of the layers. This provides a multilevel undo/redo capability. The user can assign a number of interesting and useful functions to a ‘Bonus’ button. We anticipate having the following functions, and possibly more: loop extend, loop copy, octave down effect (for bass line creation), metronome with loop quantize, reverse playback, reverse lead live, auto fade out and layer merging (combining all layers to free up memory). There will be a variety of signal routing options and a Pedal Link™ system so multiple units can be synched. It will be about half the size of the Rang™ Plus. As with our earlier models there will be no MIDI or USB connectivity, and no permanent storage of loops. We will insure that the pedal is easy to operate and as intuitive as the current one, but it will be deeper if you want to explore the new features.

I'm updating this review after updating the firmware. It now is fully functional. If you want a basic easy looper, get one of the simple Boss or Digitech pedals. If you want a POWERFUL and FLEXIBLE looper, get this one. The company is small (this is no mega corporate schtick), the looper sounds fantastic, built like a tank, and it has a surprisingly small footprint. You can read the manual on the company website to read about how many incredible and innovative features this looper has, but I personally love the ability to customize the buttons, play separate loops of different lengths, and set up a master loop (usually one measure "click" track) and then slave other loops to it. You can set it up to do about whatever you want. The only drawback is that it won't record loops within the unit, but thats isn't what it is designed for; its designed for serious live looping and flying without a net. I laugh in the face of danger! Ha! Ha! Ha!

This is a pedal designed by guitarists for guitarists. But I use it for guitar, sax, and vocal (you can use the Rang's stereo as two mono split channels!).

Five stars!!

Highly recommended!!!

Feb. 2012 Update: It turns out the units I purchased in Dec. 2011 and early Jan. 2012 were both from a small number of pedals that had messed up microprocessors. I contacted Mike at Boomerang and he got me straightened out and fixed up: I've now been using a solid, working Rang III for a couple weeks, and I'm stoked. Mike said there were precisely 141 malfing units; I somehow ended up with two of them. I've now tried the Line 6, the Boss RC-30 and this Rang III and, far and away, the Boomerang is the way to go.

Contrary to my initial impression, the Rang is in fact built very well. The problem I had with the 2 duds was with the processor, not the way the unit is wired. This third units is sweet. Unlike other loopers built on the "stomp box" model, the Rang is light to the touch. The foot switches are precise, and there is no lag time in recording or play back.

There is tons to say about the logic behind the design of the operations of this looper but the one thing I've really come to love so far is that you can "synch" layers and tracks: unlike any other looper I've tried, the Rang III knows where 1 is. That is incredibly helpful.

The Rang is a cut above but, frankly, most loopers seem designed by geek-dorks who only want to make ear candy and do tricks (roll over and beg), so it only had to be smarter than mere audio bling to win top prize. A maker still needs people to be able to figure out how to use the tool, and that is where I knock the Rang down a star. Mike Nelson & Co. are funny tech writers, but they write like engineers: this button does this, and if you press these two in tandem.... That's wrong: tech needs to be written from the user's PoV.

This is one great looper. Have been looking at the Boomerang for several months. It's a little pricey. Finding it on Amazon Prime gave me the confidence and last bit of motivation to finally pull the trigger.
As is typical from Amazon, delivery and condition of product was stellar.
This is the cleanest and easiest to use looper I own. (as compared to the Boss looper and the Line 6 M13). Put it into the effects loop of my Mark Five and it does absolutely nothing to my tone. The foot switches are great (even in flip-flops or stocking feet).
As shipped from Amazon, it does have the latest software upgrade. It does come with a power supply so no need to buy the recommended spare.
Very happy with this purchase.
May try the Boomerang Chorus/Delay next. Would be good to see more reviews on it first though.

No other looping pedal compares to the Boomerang. This so pedal offers many flexible setups of the 6 buttons and additional capability with the add on. The sound quality is 10/10 for looped mono/stereo content. Make sure you purchase an expression pedal to control the volume/decay rate/fade rate.

The Boomerang II is pricy, but if you are looking for a serious piece of pro gear for live looping situations it has no equal.
It replicates both acoustic and electric tone perfectly, with no noticeable drop in sound quality at all. It simply sounds great, as if another guitarist was standing right next to you. The unit is very well built and sturdy, and the loop buttons have a very low travel.. needing only a gentle tap to punch in and out of your loops. This allows for a very high degree of accuracy with your timing.
There are several options for arranging up to 4 different loops. They can been captured and played individually, very useful for storing and recalling verse, chorus, and bridge segments during a song. There is also a loop sync option, where you lay down a master loop and all other loops will automatically match up to the first. Finally there are free form modes for creating wild textures, either using multiple tracks, or layering/ stacking sound on a single track with each pass.
Stereo inputs and outputs give you the option of hooking up 2 different instruments. The boomerang will automatically rout each to its own respective amp.
Some more tricks up its sleeve include a reverse option, fade option, and even a "drone" option included in the most recent OS update.

Unlike other loopers I have tried, the Boomerang seems built for pro live use. You can trust it to do what you want without fiddling with multiple button presses, clunky foot switches, tempo clicks, tone suck, and timing problems. If you have ever tried other loopers on the market, especially Jamman's, you know what I am talking about here.

Boomerang III is expensive. Also, it does not 'store' loops in memory after powering down unlike many other popular loopers.
