I sample/loop in my solo acoustic show a looooooooooot. I use a JamMan most of the time except when I can manage to gank the Loop Station out of the studio. The JamMan is definitely a great place to start. I've been looping for about a year now and I'm still learning new stuff to do with it. The biggest thing about a loop station is that you just have to use your imaginiation. As someone that owns one... and has been exposed to a few others... I'd say it's probably the best loop station for the money. There are betters ones out there but for the price you can't beat it. Definitely worth it... Good Luck.
