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!!!

The Boomerang III is a great looper! The only "UNLESS" I would add is this: If you want to do the one man band thing and have tons of songs stored and ready to use on demand, this isn't the one you want; the Boomerang III has limited recording time, and is specifically designed to be used for one-shot live looping; it DOES NOT store loops.

Now that that's out of the way, I'll get on with the review: Sound quality is EXCELLENT. Features are INCREDIBLE. Construction is SOLID. And it's MADE IN THE USA. I've been using and getting to know this fairly complex device for just over a month now, and I am extremely happy with it.

The best thing about the Boomerang III is the 3 INDEPENDENT LOOPS (4, if you need them); they can be run all synced together, in series one after another in any order, or completely free style. There's a bit of a learning curve; there's a lot to absorb, as far as what to push when and how to set things, but the manual is very clear about every mode of operation, and if you apply yourself, and PRACTICE, you'll get it.

Right out of the box, it's set for series operation, meaning, you record Loop #1; when that's done, either tap the button again and start it playing, or tap Loop #2 to immediately begin recording another section. Same again for Loop #3. By the time that's done, you now have 3 phrases recorded, any of which can be cued up to begin playing when the current one is finished. All 3 loops can be overdubbed, and any or all of the three can be stopped and erased independently of the others.

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.
