Re: blech (pedal choices)

hi Matt,
well no-one mentioned the obvious choice based on your list
(Rainer, where are you? :-)

yep, just.

yep, but you have to hold the tap button for the length of the loop,
...releasing it accurately isn't as easy as tap -- tap

yes, speed dial up/down an octave

while overdubbing.
(no cheap pedal lets you set feedback while not overdubbing)

thought it would be cheaper in US :-(

Also it has
A hi-pass/lo-pass filter that works on the loop.
Bad time stretching on loop.
A lot of headroom.
Can be used as a send/return fx (mono) if you 
use the right in/outs.

As a delay fx it's one of the most colourful available,
but there's quite some limitation in how you can combine
that with the looper.
