I haven't tried one of these, but it might be what you're looking for:

Seems like your drummer could either stomp or hit it occasionally to 
establish tempo (and update the tempo).  Good luck with your work.

What about synching my looper to a tap-tempo controller that the 
drummer manages?

I have been trying to configure a looping environment for myself and 
an electronic percussionist who uses a VST sampler/loop playback 
virtual instrument hosted by his recording software.  I have been 
taking a sync signal out from the computer with some success, and my 
Repeater loops stay in sync with his drum loops.  However I'm looking 
for a solution that will allow us to take it outside the studio.

Syncing to the computer doesn't allow for tempo changes on the fly, so 
I figured the logical extension would be to remove the computer and 
substitute some sort of tap-tempo device.  It seems like I should be 
able to let the drummer control the looper tempo (assuming they can 
play to the tempo they establish themselves).  Anyone tried this in 
practice?  What would be a good tap-tempo device so the drummer could 
provide the MIDI sync output?

A secondary consideration - I'd like to avoid using headphones...
