First off, this pedal does not use batteries. You will need a 9V adaptor to power the TC Electronic Ditto. I thought I had one, but when it arrived, I realized I didn?t. So, I had to order the adaptor and wait a few extra days before I could try it out?
Speaking of days, I received this from Germany in 7 days. (I live in the US) I was extremely excited to get it, and it was a bummer I had to wait a couple more days?
Was the pedal worth the wait?
It most definitely was.
I?ve been wanting a ?looper? pedal for a long time. After spending several hours searching on Youtube which would be the best for me, I settled on the TC Electronic Ditto.
I play a range of different styles. From metal, to church music, and even Cigar Box guitars. This pedal is working wonderfully for each. I admit, I don?t use it as much for the church stuff, but I have to lay down a wonderful bottom for my monster-metal, and for laying some old school blues for my cigar box guitars.
I wish I had gotten this a lot sooner. The ease of use is amazing. Click once, and your recording. I lay my rhythm down. Click again, I can jam on top of it. Click again, and I can record some power chords over the rhythm, then click again, and I can jam on top of it.
It?s really that simple to use.
The pedal is small, but like Marvel Comic?s Wolverine, it?s tough. Several people have laughed at it because of how small it is, but it feels immensely solid, and it?s had no trouble handling live performances.
The ?loop? tone is clear, with no weird sounds/tones popping up in the playback. I had this small worry that the playback would affect my tone?Nope. It?s no problem at all.
The ONLY issue with this setup doesn?t have anything to do with the pedal?.it?s just a common one people have with using ?loopers.? You have to make sure your timing is right when clicking on/off the pedal. If you leave a little bit of space in-between, you will hear it on the loop. It all comes down to timing?and practice should fix that.
This pedal is wonderful. I love it, and it?s really played a big role in taking my life performance to a whole new level. If you want a pedal for loops, and quality is what you are looking for, right here is your answer? TC Electronic Ditto!
