I just bought this for the fun of it, and just in case I need it for a small gig sometime. I have a looper for an electric guitar, but that is the only way it can be used, with an instrument that has a pickup in it. This mic looper allows me to loop anything that plays thru a mic...vocal, banjo, fiddle, bass, guitar...all without having to have a pickup in the instrument. This little looper is also really nice because it has a STOP button!! If anyone has ever used a single button looper (like the small ditto) they know that sometimes you mess up with just one multipurpose button operated with your foot. One press to record, two presses to stop, one step to play, while all the time watching a little led light that goes from red to green that indicates you are recording or pausing or playing...it can be a nightmare in a live situation in the daylight...you either cannot see the led color, or you step twice on the button and actually only one step was successful, then all of a sudden it starts playing the loopback thru the mains when you are trying to stop the song!
This new one has one button to stop, which some genius finally figured out that is the way it should be!
