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!).
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.

The Boomerang III is like having three line 6 DL4s, except it's one pedal rather than three! Has up to four simultaneous and independent loops. Read morePublished 18 days ago by Rhys
Best looper. Little bit of a learning curve, but very intuitive and excellent sound quality. Run guitar, vocals, and two synthesizers into a yamaha mg10xu, then into the boomerang. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Rob Elizondo

Got this to replace the Boss RC-30 Looper pedal. This is in many ways more flexible and professional as a product, although you cannot save loops.Published 16 months ago by Incantessimo
