I'm pretty sure that Yamaha doesn't make anything with useful looping
ability! And as far as I know, I won't be heading to Hong Kong soon. I do
know Oberheim's address and phone# though:
732 Kevin Court
Oakland, CA 94633
I'm doubt that there are any Oberheim/echoplex dealers in Hong Kong, but
you could ask them. Or you can try a US dealer, they might ship overseas.
Banana's at Large is usually pretty good:
Bananas at Large
1504 Fourth Street
San Rafael, CA 94901
At the moment, Oberheim is finishing up the first production run they have
done in a while, so everyone seems to be out of stock. Echoplecis should be
easier to get in a month or so.

sorry about that change of government thing.....If you score an echoplex,
you may soon be the only looper I know in China, huh?
Actually, that makes me wonder. I don't know much about Chinese music
traditions. Does anyone know if there are any looping parallels there, in
the way there are with other musics about the world?
