Video Review - Road Rage Pro Gear 8-Channel Looper

July 1, 2009
PG's contributor Tommy Bruner walks us through his latest Video Reivew for the Road Rage Pro Gear Triple Bypass 8-Channel Looper (read the Web-Exclusive review at, here). The 8-Channel looper comes with individual true-bypass loops, which means you can have a separate true-bypass loop for all your pedals and maybe a few loops left over for your future pedals, too. Not only does the looper clean up your sound and let each pedal retain its full tone, it is also a nice way to organize your pedals with one switching device. Each Road Rage True Bypass looper can be customized to fit your rig's needs.
