Tone Freq's TONE TIP: Loopmaster Nine Loop Effect Switcher
The Loop-Master™ "Nine-Loop Effect Switcher w/Tuner Out & Master Bypass" is a heavy-duty, no-nonsense, ultra transparent, ultra silent, true bypass strip with (9) loops, one switch for silent tuning and one switch for bypassing all of the true bypass loops at once.

Great pedals, thank you Loop-Master! 2 already in the boards, and a few more on the USPS truck... - Linda Taylor
I like having access to any effect via ONE strip at the bottom of the pedal board, no matter where that effect may actually sit on the board. BYPASS enables me to not only get that "straight to the amp" sound, it allows me to set up a preset combo of effects and then kick em all on with one stomp for a certain passage etc.The Tuner out is awesome and does not chew up a loop position. - Todd Ingram
I really like my loopmaster pedal. Mine has three loops, bypass, and an A/B for two instrument inputs. Very useful. - Mel Morris
Thanks for your great product. Having everything up front really helps make everything easier. At some point I will need a programable looper, but your true bypass loopers are by far the best on the market. I have already bought two. Thanks again! - Alex Workman

Got one of these ( 5ch+master bypass), Amazing quality and stuff! - Max
Enjoying my pedal switcher! Will send pics once I get my chords straightened out :) You guys are the best my tone sounds beautiful now! - Joshua Reese
"Cheers for the products!!!!! Simply brilliant! - Lance Daniels
Brian,It took a while but well worth the wait! I cannot thank you enough for your expertise, there are a small few in the industry who can build a high quality custom product at a great price!!Regards - Bill
I received my order for a 6-loop bypass loopstrip two weeks ago and it was above & beyond anything I could have ever hoped for. I feel like I have my PRS back using adding the loopstrip to my rig - I have the pure tone my guitar was intended to have, and unwanted noise is a thing of the past! It was absolutely worth the wait to receive my order - I would have waited twice as long for such an amazing product built with superior quality & care. In addition to getting great tone restored and cutting down on "tap dancing", I have come to learn half the fun of the loopstrip is re-rigging different ways & experimenting with my sound.
I could write a novel about the wonders loopmaster has done for my sound, I will always recommend loopmaster to anyone & absolutely return myself for future orders - not only because I know I will receive a quality product, but also because in roughly 10yrs of playing, I have never experienced such great customer service. When I emailed Brian at loopmaster seeking advice on the best utilization of my 6 loops, based on the effects I use & the sound I wish to achieve - Brian responded almost immediately with his thoughts - I could tell he actually put thought into helping me out & gave great advice.
Hands down, I have never had a better customer experience than I did with loopmaster. It is great to know all customers are treated the same - whether a professional musician or an average Joe like me - I cannot wait to order my next strip!
Thank you so much to Brian & everyone else involved at Loopmaster!-Gabe Fairfax, Washington DC
The pedals you made for Kenny and I are perfect for what we needed. Thanks for going above and beyond to make special pedals since we are unique. They work great and keep it up, you are the guitar/pedal guru.

i'm so damn happy i could give you a kiss on your cheak! my pedalboard is finished and this looper is just incredible. thank you so much! if you like, i will send you a picture of my new pedalboard. if someone in switzerland asks me, who did that crazy box, i'll be happy to say: "a crazy guy from the staates, who even has the same name as i do;-)"
thanks again, sorry for disturbing, best wishes - bryan
Brian, Beautiful work! I can't thank you enough for the customization, simply perfect. I will certainly spread the word about your high quality boxes. I am a weekend warrior but you can bet if I ever become a successful musician, I will endorse your work. Thanks again Bill
From internet forum:
"I have been gigging my Loop-Master ABCD for years. Works Great. Solid build. Been all over Asia and North America with it. Looks sexy too. I am actually on my second one since my bandmate adopted my first one"
Brian, Thanks for the looper; it exceeds my expectations. The finished product was a big hit at the Alive Festival this year. One sound guy said "I've never seen a board that clean in 19 years"! I attached a couple pics for you all wired up. Also, thank you for expediting the order. A+ work!
Regards - Dustin
I received my order 2 days ago and used it this morning in a church service. It looks awesome and works great! Thanks so much! I love it! -Andrew
My pedal is here and working perfect. A few picks from my livingroom and the board. Thank you very much
Finn Erik Breistrand - Norway.
Brian, I received the a/b/y box yesterday, and I must say, it was worth the wait. Had a show last night, and ran two amps at the same time...and I've never sounded so HUGE! Thanks so much, your products are top notch! - Keith Nicholson
Hi Mr Price !
I've well received the loopmaster's products I ordered. I'm very glad about the product, its a great quality and it works perfect. Your team is doing a great job and thanks to you for running this company. I wish you a big success and be sure I'll recommend Loopmaster to my friends.
BEst Regards - Steven Lascombe
Got the loop switcher on Friday and tested it out today. The thing just plain rocks! Great craftsmanship, built like a tank and dead silent. I could not be happier with your fine work. I will gladly send people your way when they ask me about my Loop Master switcher.
I will now be sending an order to your friends at Trailer Trash Pedal Boards for a new board and will ensure to send some photos once everything is complete.
I will most definately be doing business with you in the near future for other types of switchers that I am contemplating.
Philip Boudreau Quebec, Canada
Thanks again for the speedy delivery! Your products amazed me!!!There's so much hype about products that promise to preserve your tone and, well you know. The attention to detail and build quality are number one!!! My dream of using effects or just going straight in are now achieved,thanks to you. I am a loyal fan and customer. Peace, Steve Canty
PS. Give Rooster at Trailer Trash a tip of the hat as it was his recommendation that led me to you!
Received my pedal today and it is awesome as always Keep up the good work Thanks - Clark Rabbitt
This is Paul Santos saying thanks for answering all my EMAILS and for all your time, effort and work.
Sorry it took a bit to get back, but I've been ill for a bit and just finished up the pedalboard and everything works just beautifully. The ABY is just as you said, no bleed or popping. I'm sure none of this is news to you, since you are building them yourself and you know the quality you are putting into them.
If I get a chance I'll send you a pic of my pedalboard. I'm sure you've seen a million of them, but I'm pretty happy with it, lots of versatility and cool sounds available.
Once again thanks for everything, I appreciate the fact that you will give the same great customer service whether you are a touring musician or just a regular guy recording his own music at home.
If I need anything else, I won't be afraid to EMAIL.
Take care and continued good luck in the future - PAS
Thanks man! I just finished re-doing my pedalboard about an hour ago and everything works just fine. Your loop switchers just make sense, i should have done this years ago.
thanks again, Michael Elzey
I just received my 8 channel looper about a month ago, It took me almost two weeks to wire the pedalboard but its finally running and I have to say that looper has been one of the best purchases I've ever made, did wonders for my tone.
You guys really are the best, the wait was well worth it.
my looper arrived yesterday. I tested it with my (momentary chaotic) pedalboard and I just want to say that I love it. Great work! Thanks for that. Greetings from Dortmund, Germany - Timo
"All I needed was an ABY box with a tuner mute function. It didn't seem like that should be too obscure or hard to find but after scouring every single music store in town, I'd struck out completely. I discovered loop-master.com and, somewhat apprehensively, ordered the "ABY box w/ Tuner Out". They were great to deal with, good communication and clear, no B.S. status updates. When the pedal arrived it was everything I could have asked for. Taking off the rear panel I discovered the workmanship was impeccable and everything about it was of the highest quality. (The pedal was signed and dated inside by Brian Price). Now, a two amp setup is an integral part of my live sound and the Loop-master switcher makes it happen simply, consistently and reliably. With so much "Made in China", junk everywhere these days, it's great to discover hardware and DIY craftsmanship like this still exist in the western world. Highest possible recommendation!"
Mark David Stewart - Calgary, Canada
I got home from work tonite and there it was. Wow! It was well worth the wait thank you so much, I love it! I hooked up to my board and it's fantastic. I will definitely spread the word about your fine products.
Thanks - Rich
Thank you for such a quick response and even faster delivery of my loop pedal! The thing is quite a masterpiece of workmanship. I am glad to say I am a proud owner of one of your Loop-Master pedals! The wait was definitely worth it. The pedal is perfect! - D. McLeod.
"I've got the clean bypass, clean-dirty-tuner, and ABY being built. Can't say enough how great your pedals are!" - Nathan S.
Package arrived today. Box looks like the mailman has anger management issues, but the loop-master was none the worse for the wear and works just fine. Sounds great, of course.
Thanks so much for building such a fine product. You're not the speediest, but you're definitely worth the wait. Really fine. :)
hi there you loop master master (hihi)
my loopswitcher (4 loops) arrived in Amsterdam!!!!!!! yiihaaaa : ) I rebuilded my effects arround it, and I am very happy with the sound improvement. The suckin' but so nicely tikle'in freakie pedals are in use again and so...i'm happy .................................as sub bass warrior, and dune-tune hippie it was just the missing element in my bass gear setup thXs man, for making this perfect tool
greetings Hassie Dune-Amsterdam Holland
Hey Brian, Just wanted to let you know that my 15 looper is installed on my board! Not all loops were used saving for the future but, WOW!!! It was well worth the wait and my tone was not shabby before but now it AMAZING!!! Especially with my Old Fender Amps, They have really come alive and its all because of your Product! Great Quality too! Can't wait til my ABY Arrives. I'm sure it will be just as good!! Thanks again! I'm telling everyone about Loop Master.
James - Louisville, KY
Hey guys just stopping by again and saying thank you for the 10 channel looper. I'm very pleased. I will be uploading some pics soon with your pedal being used. You will certainly be tagged. Its definitely a conversation piece for many people.
I just wired up my new board. WOW! What a difference in tone. The bypass switch does make a difference. It was worth the wait.
Thanks - Jim
You set me up with a custom síx-loop strip w tuner & bypass for my studio a year ago. First off, let me emphasize: the looper is AMAZING. The workmanship is perfect, sonics are impeccable, and the routing possibilities have been very helpful for studio work, being able to try out different patches of pedals without degrading the signal. Many guys have been absolutely blown away when I show them what this setup is capable of.
Peter - Sweden
From an internet forum:
The loopmaster gear is really quality stuff. It costs a bit but man is it worth it. Great updates during order and building process. Brilliant guy behind it all (Brian Price) who's main focus doesn't seem to be making money but rather making quality gear and pleasing customers. If you're ever considering building a pedalboard this is the place to start.
I have owned a 3 Loop Effect Switcher w/Turner Out and Master Bypass for four years now. Not only does it not have any effect on my tone, it is build like a tank. I currently run processors through all three loops and you can't even hear the switching on/off of these. The pedal is incredible and has given me the flexibility to craft my sound. Recently one of the LED lights went out and Brian mailed me two replacement bulbs for no charge. Great product, great service!! Thanks Loop-Master

I'm glad to be a user of the fantastic " 3-Loop Effect Switcher w/ Master Bypass - Strip " !
I will post soon some pics & videos about my personal pedalboard system where the LOOPMASTER is the "mind" of it.
Many thanks & regards to Master Crafty Mr. Brian Price !
Well just to say thank you for the amazing loop pedal, it sounds awesome! Thanks again Brian, great work!
Recieved my 4 loop switcher on Sat and finished my board today. Great product, no way I'd ever have a pedal board without your products, next up is a aby switch Just stoked on how well this went, great job (have a beer on me)
Just wanted to let you know how much I'm digging the 6 loop strip you built for me a couple months ago. I've had it on the road the whole time, and it's never let me down- I'm dedicating each loop to a specific effect (1=comp, 2=od, 3=vol/tune, etc) and a nice surprise has been that getting to have everything off, if I want, allows me to haul my pedalboard to acoustic gigs as well- muddy tone gone, options galore, no loaded down signal. My band has also made numerous comments on how much better my rig is sounding- which is a huge statement because they spend most of their time giving me crap about being a geeky, overly tone-sensitive guitar player. I've also been seeing your boxes show up on boards around Austin more and more. Keep up the great work!
Very Best, Keenan LeVick
Came in the mail yesterday and i couldn't be more pleased with it. You guys did an amazing job, thanks! - Scott
Hey Brian thank you SO MUCH for my mini triple looper! I LOVE it and it makes my board look super WICKED. Yall ARE fine craftsmen! ; )
Thanks from the Ukraine , we use a Long time Loop-Masters , this is very high quality Strips -Tone saver . Thank You Brian - Taras Bulba International Pop-Rock music festival Team & sound Producer - Anatoly Lykov
Just to let you know I just received my Loop Master through the mail. Looks fantastic. Can't wait to get it in to the pedal board and operational. Better stop typing and get to work……….
Many thanks for everything - Tony Abbott
got the ab box. great construction!...I cant wait to hook it up and try it out...I use all g-l's, so im confident it'll be fine...Great workmanship,quality, and attention to detail!...Thanks - Barry little ( session musician).
Just wanted to give you a heads up that my order came in today. I haven't had a chance to hook it up to my board yet but it looks great. Just wanted to thank you again for sending it out to me so quickly. I'll hit you up later in the summer and let you know how things are going. Thanks for a great product and more importantly thanks for your cooperation with my schedule. -Dave Krist
Just wanted to send you a note to say I got my loop switcher in the mail. Hooked it up and put it to use, and it is just awesome!! This thing is really quiet and the build quality is just awesome. It's what I've been in search of for quite some time. Really glad I came across your site. I've already recommended you to three friends of mine. If I need any other products like this I'll definitely be coming to you. Thanks a lot and take care!
Regards - John S.
I just got back in town Tuesday evening and finally got my hands on the unit you built for me. This thing looks great and I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to understand what I needed and then custom build it for me! - Russ
The Loopers are amazing! My tone has gotten brighter and the treble knob on my Bad Cat has been lowered by 20%. Simply amazing. - Chris
Just wanted to mention the fantastic service I got from Brian! Some time ago I went through a series of emails with him where I described a new pedal board project and mentioned specific size and configuration for a Loop-Master that I needed. I could not find what I was looking for and thought maybe I just missed it? Brian came back with exactly what I was looking for and when I asked where it was on his web page, he told me it was not there but he would custom build it for me! Just got the unit and while it is still not on the board, it is exactly what I needed and exactly the size I specified.
Thanks for the custom service. Hopefully the unit will be powered and on the board soon! - Russ
I just checked my mail box yesterday and tried your a/b switcher and dirty/clean channel switcher
And they are good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So good!! No pop, no buzz, and no hum !!!!
Plus, I love your LEDs that they don't hurt my eyes >:)
Now I know where to come back to when I need more loopers!
Thank you again! Truly - J.K. -
I got the 3-loop/tuner out box today and man what a difference in tone! I'm sure you hear that all the time but it really does make a huge difference when the signal doesn't have to travel through your pedals. Thanks for another great product. Regards - Jeff Wadsworth
I recently got a 6 loop/tuner loop master unit from you. I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with your unit and my new pedalboard and clean sound I now have. My recent performances have been great with a noticeable sound improvement. Enclosed is picture of new board and LoopMaster product. I would be happy to let others know of your quality product as well. Thanks again.
hey, brian. i got the pedals in today. thanks for such a quick ship! the pedals themselves work perfectly, and the feedback loop does exactly what i'd hoped it'd do. i might even order a second dual looper at some point without the feedback loop for more practical live purposes. we'll see.
also, i wanted to tell you again how perfect the ABY is. it got rid of every problem that i had with my **(manufacturer not shown out of respect)**, and it looks much more badass to boot! thanks again, and i'll be sure to recommend you to anyone else who may be looking for a quality switcher or router. in fact, you may have noticed that one of the other guys in my band placed an order with you recently (his was the bizarre idea for a single looper with a "Y" input). i'm confident that he'll enjoy the quality and usefulness of his as much as i do mine. one thing is for sure, though, we definitely seem to have a knack for asking for wierd, custom-designed shit, and i appreciate you accomodating us!
anyway, i just wanted to drop you a line and tell you thanks for the good work and quick shipping. take care. - josh
I Hope that you're fine
Writing to tell you that I received this morning the bypass strip box. Great great work, I'm really impressed by the quality. I'm going to attach it to my pedalboard this week. Can't wait to play with it.
Thanx a lot Man! That was a real pleasure to deal with you
Zeb "KwiJibo" - France
Brian I just wanted to say thanks for the sweet bypass strip, it sounds so much better and made my playing so much easier and smoother, and several of my friends want to buy one now and I think one of them already has put in an order for 2 5 loops or something.
thanks again, it was worth the wait for it. - kyle
Just wanted you to know that I got the A/B/Y today. Plugged it in and it works perfectly.
For many years I used a **** A/B/Y & always experienced "bleed" from one side to the other. It was not a huge problem, but it always bothered me. I had heard about ***** and ordered one of those. That actually bled worse than the *****, so I sent it back and went back to using the *****. I started investigating many other brands and was just about ready to pull the trigger on a ***** (for $300 + ) and a friend of mine had reminded me of you. The way I use it is with one amp (usually set for cleans) & my other amp is setup with more volume & some drive for solos. This is where the bleed would happen. With yours it is absolutely silent in switching & NO BLEED!
I am an active member of the Seymour Duncan Forum so is the friend who mentioned you. Thanks for making this whole process easy & especially for making me a great pedal.....................
Thanks....... Dave S.
Just received my single loop-master and it's perfect! There's a rugged elegance to the metal finish and you even remembered the little cowboy decal I asked about! It works great cleaning up a boss PS-5 and a moog ring modulator. Your customizable options, quality, and price will definitely have us coming back when my band-mates or I need more loopers.
Thanks again - Michael (The Van Goghs)
Thanks for making these beautiful boxes, I turned a guitar buddy on to your website today. - John
"I have never dealt with a more professional music dealer than you" - Mark
Item received, thanks very much for your good service and communication, John Fox
Hey my names is wes chandler just wanted to let u know. im very pleased with the products i ordered from you.. its always worth the time for good quality items... thanks again and Merry Christmas.
Brian, I got my ABY with tuner out and incorporated it into my pedalboard. I just wanted to say thanks so much for building this thing for me. It totally rocks and when i emailed you, you were cool and answered my questions promptly. Thanks again and I will be ordering from you again. Joshua
You responded to my post yesterday helping me get my new looper in check. I really appreciate it. I just wanted to let you know that both me and the other guitarist in my band absolutely love our loopmasters. We both just made the wonderful transition to an all true bypass rig and we both are beyond excited about it. It's a crying shame to think about the incredible difference the looper makes and how long my tone resided under a blanket. I know your products are build like tanks, but if we ever need anything else, we are coming to you man! Just wanted to write you a note in appreciation of your product and your customer service! It means the world man! You've two friends in Soulstice.
We received the Loop-Master stuff today and my son said it works great! Thanks so much - it is a pleasure doing business with you.
Sincerely - Nancy (and Nicky) Barbato
"Hi Brian! Just an update on the loop switcher you've made for me:It's an absolute killer, man! It looks beautiful, it operates totally smoo-ooth an noise free, and it just gives me so much more control over my sound - a sound which is way improved. I have never had this much sonic control before in my guitar slinging life (ca 23 years since my first electric guitar and stomp box). Furthermore: the different color LEDs works perfectly as "guiding lights" in the dark! No problem to find the right switches, even in a pitch black room. Amazing! The three white bypass LEDs really shines "No over-the-top-fuzz? Perhaps you forgot to push this?". Ha-ha! The amber colored loops 3 and 4 (the other loops having red LEDs) gives me a sense of left and right, and the green for the loop combination is perfect for checking that only one effect is on. Now I can preset three overdrives in two loops (my two fuzzes share a loop) and hit the bypass switch and go from clean to "Weeeeoooooaaaannnnggg", and back to only one overdrive with the combination switch off, without any river dancing routines :-) I have said something about pictures earlier, and if it's OK with you I can send some - just to let you see where it ended up. The only problem now is that I seriously misjugded my need for George L cable. I'm about 3 meters short, actually!And one of the straight plugs you sent me is defect. No sound...Besides, I have desided to have a 15 ft .255 George L from my board to my amp. Luckily there are shops in Norway that carries George L stuff.Just a bit annoying that I didn't just "over-buy" some. Your prices being lower... Anyway, that's peanuts, and certainly something I can endure, having tested the looper this evening. I am in awe of your work, man! So, I would just like to thank you for this wonder box - it will stick with me forever! That is a fact! I will never sell this! No way!All my guitar friends will cry and beg me to tell them where I got it. And I will gladly tell them! Thanks a million, and may your future work make many more like me even happier!
Best regards and all that jazz,
Lars E Flateby, Norway
Just a quick line to let you know the switcher got here today.
I have to say, I am very impressed! It does just what I needed and it's a very solid look and feeling build! Thanks so much!
I am still working on this rig but I know there will be another few switchers I'll need in various places and I'll for sure be letting you know about them, plus I need to get some Plex tapes rewound!
Anyway, thanks again, I'll be in touch real soon.
Just wanted to let you know that after working with the Single Loop "ABY" switcher for a couple weeks i do not know how i ever got along without it. No pops, no clicks, dead quiet. It's uses are almost endless. Nice work you guys. Brilliant. Had to do some thinking about which switcher to buy and even at that there was a little guess work only because my system is rather convoluted and it changes a bit depending on how carried away i want to get. I'm using my switcher in a studio situation only where i'm going straight to the board with both A and B outputs. One channel being the dry channel and the other being the effects channel. The "loop" being dedicated to various delays and looping devices that i want to be sent to the second channel only. I't hard to describe and probably sounds fairly goofy but that's whats happening in this particular situation. The fact that your switcher doesn't introduce pops and clicks and doesn't promote "loading" is proof that you have done your homework. Thanks for a great product.
Kind regards - john duval
Hello Brian – The Loop-Master showed up Saturday. I do not know how I have managed to live without this thing for so long! I love it. It works perfectly and it really gives me some nice options.
Thanks again - Greg
I received the loop strip last week but I was out of town. I did not get to try it until about 20 minutes ago and I had to stop playing around just to email you and say "Thank you!"
I have a moderately complicated pedal board / rack effects system and this thing offers me more control than I have ever dreamed of.
Simply put, the loop strip makes sense of my entire effects system - like a brain for my board! It is even better looking than I imagined, and obviously super-sturdy. The LED colors were as ordered, and the layout superb - down to the distance between the switches. I can only describe it as "perfection"!
Just want you to know that I will be plugging your product whenever and wherever I play from now on. Ok....I will stop now.
You have made me a very satisfied and happy customer.
Thanks again and cheers,
Hey Brian, i got a story for ya-i was heading out for the studio and heard a car pull up in my drive-it was the mailman with my 6 channel looper-i ran out and got it from him-jumped in the car,drove an hour to the studio-unpacked it and hooked up my pedals to it with freshley made blue george l cable-and guess what, it worked perfectly! I am very impressed with this product, it made a very very noticeable difference in my sound in the studio-i cannot wait for the next gig with it. Thanks for making such a cool product. - Rich
I have just recieved my Micro ABY Box today. This little cool looking box works great with my Peavey Valveking 212 Combo & my B-52 LG-10012S combined. My B-52 has a Ground/Lift switch already built in so that came in handy. This box is so simple to use & it requires no battery to operate, just plug & play, now that is cool !. Makes my guitar jam session more interesting by letting me switch back & forth between my amps & also combining them together for a bigger stereo sound. Once again, thanks for the great service !......
Last week I received my custom loop-master. I have been playing with it for several days, and I have to say that is incredible well done! No clics or pops, no noise at all (this is great). And as you know, a really better way of organizing effects in the chain. Now my sound is better and my feet movements are less than before, so I am very happy with my purchase. Thank you for your help, and your useful information.
Best regards - Jaime
Just received the pedal today. It looks beautiful and sounds beautiful as well. Well worth the wait...thanks sooo much. Your art is nothing short of amazing. Have a great summer.
Brian, Just wanted to thank you for my triple loop with tuner out and A/B switch. I have been using it for several weeks now and everything seems to be working great with it. Once fully implemented into my set-up (I am putting together a new pedal board) this switch will greatly simplify my switching tasks on stage. Thanks for a great product.
just wanted to say thanks for the great looper I purchased a couple of months back. I have put it to use in my studio and has been an awesome way to quickly and easily experiment with pedals then switch back to a clean unaltered amp sound when needed without having to stop and unplug everything.
Thanks again - Glen
Hi Brian, I just wanted to let you know that I got my single effect true bypass switcher today. It really does make a different in my tone when the EHX Bass Micro Synth is "off"! Finally, the output of my clean is even and i was even able to get a better sound out of my overdrive effect. I like the added bonus of the button on the switcher to disable the Micro Synth when it is "on". Very nice!
I look forward to working with you again!
Thank you - Ryan Ratajski
I just had a chance to intigrate the ABC box into my rig. Thanks for such a very well done product. The switching is noisless, the unit is very transparent and there no noticable bleed from channel to channel. A huge improvment from other units that cost twice as much. It does not take up nearly as much real estate either. I would have no problems recomending you work to anyone I record or tour with.
Received my order today and everything looks great. I connected the Patch Unit and Double-Loop Switcher w/Tuner Out on my board this evening to check things out and I am very impressed. No noise or hum, very quiet and looks awesome on my pedalboard. This is a TOP QUALITY product!!
Thanks - Bob Dominguez
Thank you Brian.
What took me so long to get one of these Loop Masters is way beyond me. I just finished using it for the first time. I have got all of the dirt pedals on loop 1 and all of the swirlies on loop 2. It is simply AWESOME to play through my 4 stacked dirt pedals (acutely, astutely adjusted) at one time. Kicking that loop On and Off just blows my mind completely. I am afraid that you might have made an incredible sounding guitarist out of little ol me. :-)
Here's to Ya! - Gary
Hi - I just wanted to say thanks - I bought one of your micro aby pedals a few months ago (I'm from Calgary, AB Canada). I think it's an excellent product and it solved all of my rockin needs. You are the best! - Matt
Hi! today february the 18th I have received my looper. I have immediately put it to the test and was amazed at how it help me with my sound. Each pedals in the four loops have now a more defined sound, they do what they have to do better. I thank you very much and it is not impossible I order another one in the future.

Just wanted to say thanks for an extremely well-made bypass unit. The attention to detail is fantastic, especially the placement of the input and output switches so close together to minimize the length in the signal path when the loops are inactive and the placing of the switches in the back row slightly higher than the ones in the front row to make them easier to step on. It works perfectly, and has been well worth the short wait time. Thanks!!
Brian, Just wanted to feedback on the effects looper you built me. I ordered a 10-channel looper with a master bypass. It works brilliantly! It has cleaned up my tone considerably, and has made an otherwise large pedalboard easy to navigate while singing simultaneously. The quality is great, and the tap tempo switch I ordered is dead silent – a must have for tapping in delay and tremolo tempos! Thanks for the help in deciding what to order, your customer service is impeccable. Everyone who has checked out my pedalboard in the last few weeks has commented positively, and everyone wants one of your loopers.

I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know just how pleased I am with my custom Loop-Master. Build quality is top-notch, everything functions perfectly and the unit is dead quiet - what more could I ask for?! Also, the custom reverb/tremolo controls (via TRS cable) work beautifully with my Valverb. I really cannot thank you enough for your willingness to personally lend insight and incorporate off-the-wall functions, especially considering the "off-the-shelf" and impersonal nature of most every product/manufacturer out there. Cheers to you!
I've enclosed a pic of the Loop-Master mounted in my homemade custom pedalboard. It is actually recessed into the pedalboard, sitting at an angle for ease of switching. All wiring (power and signal) is concealed beneath the board and external connections are done via Neutrik-style locking TRS jacks. Needless to say, the LM is truly the KEY element in rig!
Thanks again and keep up the great work!
hi just letting you know i got the 8 channel true by-pass last week, its a fantastic product and has totally changed my tone for the absolute best. it really is a true bypass strip. very easy to use and get used to, every guitarist with more than 2 pedals should have one.
thanks for everything.

Hello, I just wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks for such a outstanding product. It made my pedalboard design come together beyond my expectations. I plan on building a few more of these boards for working guitarists and will be ordering from you again real soon.
Thanks again! - Joe
I got my order. I was really impressed with the quality of the boxes, wiring & build. Both the AB boxes & effects boxes work perfectly and are very quiet. I am using an A/B to switch between a Vintage Sound 65 Blackface Twin and a Germino HR-100 Plexi. The effects boxes are switching my two Fulltone TTEs on/off. Was worth the wait!
Thanks - Barnett
I received my A/ B /C switch today. I am very happy with it. I wrote my first Harmony Central user review ever and gave the unit a perfect 10.0 across the board.
How am I using it? I play a Taylor 815-CE acoustic, a Gibson Les Paul Custom, and a bass (either Hofner Violin or Rickenbacker 4003) through the same rig: a GNX3000 Multi-Effects unit that goes into either the PA system or a keyboard amp. This allows me to use different amp/cabinet models and effects with the different instruments I play. The Loop-Master A/ B /C switch works perfectly for this setup. There's no pops, hum, static, or unwanted noises: only the comforting click of the switch (which I imagine I will only hear at bedroom volume levels).
Okay: I will quit writing about it now. You can read my review on Harmony Central. I think is the first review written on your A/ B /C switch.
Thank you very much for keeping me informed of the status throughout your process.

My order just arrived and I felt compelled to tell you how pleased I am. I waited until I could afford the three loop pedal with tuner. I am so glad I did as isolating effects pedals in small groups makes a dramatic difference in operational efficiency as I am sure you know. The performance of each grouping is quieter and possesses much more of the original signal. It is like my effects pedals came alive. The best part is I can jump right to total bypass any time for a pristine guitar to amp tone. You have got a great product at a reasonable price. Thanks again

Brian, (Referring to Four Loop Effect Switcher with Tuner Out + w/reverb switcher built in)
The pedal arrived and it is perfect. Works like a charm and is exactly what I wanted. Thanks so much!
I wanted to let you know , I just love this Double loop effect switcher [strip] w/ABY outputs, MasterBypass & Tuner out. It is everything that I had hoped that it would be and that rocks because I had very high expectations.
Thank you, Antonio
Absolutely love the 8 switch loopmaster. Really well built and a very satisfied customer here. I have been using it for a few weeks and am just amazed at its functionality. Well worth the wait and the cost.
(Referring to the Four Loop Effect Switcher w/Tuner Out and Master Bypass and Mini Tap Tempo Pedal)
Very pleased! Been using it plenty and it is everything I hoped for. Will surely be doing business with you in the future.
M. Woodward - Australia
I wanted to write you and tell you how happy I am with your product. The custom box you built me is perfect. I have attached some pics of the complete board which is currently entered into the HCFX battle of the boards 07 contest. Thanks to you and Lavacable it sounds great too!!!
Thanks - Aaron
Wanted to let you know I got my looper and it is perfect. I can almost guarantee a few of my "pedal" geek peers here in nashville will see this and want one :) Fine work. It is truly a tone shaping must have!
B. Tabor - (Tennessee)
From the Gearpage.net:
You can work with Brian with full confidence... I just purchased a custom 5 loop unit with bypass and tuner functionality a couple weeks ago and it is a great unit.
Well constructed, and noiseless operation. Gives me great flexibility and total control of my large pedal board.
Thanks for the great product
Best, - Mike
Hi Brian, just a quick note to let you know the 2 6 loopers have arrived here in Australia and look way better than i imagined, can't wait to rewire the pedalboard to hear the difference they make.
Thanks again for your help best wishes
Jason - Australia
I just wanted to say thank you and let you know that the looper works great. I also want to send a pic of my board for your web site when I can. I will not hesitate to send people your way in the future.

I just wanted to drop a quick note to say that I received the bypass switcher and ABY box. They work solidly and just as I hoped for my new pedal board project.

3-13-07: hi brian,
i just got my effect switcher yesterday, and i know now that i will order some more things from you. the thing is high-quality in every aspect, from building to sound. i am very very satisfied with this tiny little box, and my tone is now closer than yesterday to what i am searching for. thanx a lot!! :)
luis, from spain
I have got your ABY Box today. It looks very cool and works very well and transparent (as usual ! ). I am a Japanese recording & live session player living in Taiwan. I can get some loop box or AB box here. But I don't think they are very well done. I really love to use your Loop-Master!!!
Thanks, Brian! Loop-Master the BEST!!!

Brian, (Referring to a custom order)
Just received the box yesterday and it is AWESOME! Works just as advertised; it has everything that I needed. Thank you again for your hard work and incredible customer support.

11-30-06: (From a thread at: http://www.thefenderpick.com and referring to the Standard Mini A/B (LED Version)
I just got this little guy from loop-master.com, and what a great little A/B box this is! I had been using a DOD 270 to switch between two amps, and it was terrible! It had all kinds of noise, hum, and pops.... ugh! This new box from Loop-Master is quiet as a mouse! NO POPS! NO NOISE! NO HUM! I LOVE IT! Even though it took three and a half weeks to get it (they custom build as you order), it was worth the wait. So if you need any switchers, a/b, or a/b/y boxes made, check these guys out. They are pretty reasonable and it looks to be extremely well made. And you get to choose what color LEDs you want, so how cool is that?
I received my second 6 loop strip as well as pedal board coupler last week. As always, fantastic quality and quick service! I now have 4 of your pedals controlling my vintage effects - they have become a center of my rigs.
Thanks again! Sean - (Seattle, WA.)
Hi Brian !
Brilliant unit - works like a dream ! thanks very much for the quick delivery and turnaround Have recommended you to others already thanks again !!!
Nick Mitchell- (United Kingdom)
I do not think I ever properly thanked you for building such an awesome custom box. I love it. Having the two loops and the a/b switch right there at the front of my pedal board is really working out well, freeing me up to concentrate on playing and singing instead of tap-dancing on the pedals. And with both loops bypassed I definitely notice an improvement in my tone, even though I do use George Ls and most of the pedals are true bypass (or boss style) -- the signal no longer has to travel through eight or nine pedals before reaching my amp.
Thanks a lot!
Eric Wallen - (North Carolina)
Pedal received safe and sound, thanks. In the meantime I have been using another Loop-Master I picked up 2nd hand. A great device indeed.... I swear my rig sounds so much better now for splitting the chain up and, I guess, taking the tuner out of it altogether.
Niall - (United Kingdom)
Many thanks. I recieved my Clean/Dirty Effects Switcher w/Tuner Out and Master Bypass last week .It works flawlessly and I am amazed at how much of my guitars tone was being sucked out by the old pedals I have been using for years. It is a great product and very well made. I wish you every success for the future.
Glen (United Kingdom)
Hi Brian, I got my pedal today and it is great! I love the tuner out feature, everyone should have one of these. You will be hearing from me and my friends in the future. Keep up the good work.
James Brown (Indiana)
Thanks for the expeditious delivery of my pedals. I opened them up. The wiring & solders are beautiful & strong--reminiscent of the wiring on a naval vessel on which I once trained.
Ryan Pfeiffer (of Captain Yonder)
Incredible work great quality could not be happier. You guys are pros thanks for all the email updates and the cool loopers will send you a picture of my board when I am done. Thanks
Jack (Houston Tx)
I just received the 6 loop effect switcher on Saturday and had it set up on Sunday on my board for church. WOW! My life is easier and tone is restored. The quality is fantastic. I can not wait for my Custom mini to arrive which will control my wah...
Great job - I will BE BACK!
Just wanted to say thanks for the awsome products. I purchased two of the six-loop strips and linked them together to control a bunch of stomp-boxes and even more rack mount effect units. My guitar has never had so much drive with a true clean sound. These units allowed me to switch all my rack units on and off without having to buy expensive and trouble-some MiDi controllers. Thanks again. If anyone has any question about purchasing any products from Loop-Master, feel free to contact me and I tell you how high quality this equipment is.
Chris Penrod, Ohio
hi brian just letting you know i received my loop-master.this thing is fantastic,its cleaned my sound up reduce noise,no popping,led and i have the sweet sound of my fender twin back,thanks a lot and well done for a great product. I will be buying another very soon,these should be on ebay vintage effects sites lots of people dont know the benefits of true bypass. all the best john.. (United Kingdom)
I have reiceived the Double-Loop Effect Switcher w/Tuner Out. I am impressed. No-nonsense tool-of-the-trade equipment, perfect workmanship and looks nice to! What more can you ask for?
Just to let you know that the Loop-Master unit is performing perfectlly. It has been roughly two months since i have got it and it is, without a doubt, a crucial piece of equipment for my effects switching. It makes it so much easier and that temp button really comes in handy. Thanks again for a great product.
Helder Rodrigues from Portugal.
So it has been one month since I got the mini bypass and the double bypass boxes, and I can say that I am completely satisfied with those. I used them a few times with my band, once live, and it actually sounds a lot better since those get rid of four tone sucking pedals such as a dod gonkulator and a whammy: less hum and the feeling of having a really nice, full tone. I also really like how those look on the pedal board with their customised led. And it is always cool to see guitarist from other bands checking out your pedals and being like "Wow what is that, I have never seen it before!". So thanks again, I will definately recommend your pedals to other musicians.
Antoine from Paris, France.
I received the Lopp Box you made for me.I tried it on my rig & I will tell you something (COVER YOUR EARS ,READy WWWWWOOOOOWWWWW AWESOME .I never imagined it would be this good. Everything is so crisp & clean & simple. Thank you so much for solving my pedal board signal nightmare with such a simple solution yet quality product. I will surely recomend your products to anyone that will listen without hesitation. I love everything about this product you sold me ,your company & your kind ,attentive preocupation with fully satisfying your customers. Thanks again Brian.
I had my first chance to use the A/B box last night and it sounds and works Great!! It is nice a quiet and small. Just what I was looking for!!
Thanks for the great work!!
Thanks man - you totally rock
I got the a/b and dual looper today - that was MUCH faster than expected
THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!
Dan Strain Nashville, TN
Your A/B/Y Mini arrived, and it does just what it is supposed to do, simply and quietly.
You build a great pedal, at a great price. I could not have asked for better.
I just received my pedal yesterday. What a fantastic change in my setup! This thing rocks, and I just wanted to thank you for being so cool. You do not find many businesses like yours these days, and I really appreciate the time and care you put into your work.
Thank you for taking my concept pedal through production. I now have a silent master control on my custom NGM pedalboard. As you recall, the pedal incorporates your ABY, tuner bypass, AB and four loops. Now, I have three instruments on the ready with silent tuning on demand. The AB allows me to harness two amps and even run them simultaneously. With the four loops I switch in or out any combination of a dedicated tank reverb, dirt, modulation pedals, etc. And, of course I can switch them all out of the signal chain whenever I desire. The box is simply great in function. Instead of dancing around a pedalboard, I have needed effects cued and with two or three taps switches guitar, fx, and amp. Just awesome! This box has great build quality and a thoughtful layout, too.
It has been a pleasure working with you on this project. Playing out is more fun as setup time is reduced and the music is more interesting as shifts in genre and style is effortless with this custom pedal. Thanks so much and I will call again whenever I need another box. Afterall, you are the Loop-Master.
Hi Brian Got my loopmaster last week - am mostly using it to swap between normal and trem inputs on my old silverface pro reverb. It works brilliantly, and the A+B really quacks!
Mind you, the Pro + Marshall mark II 50w is, as we brits say, "really rather nice".
Thanks for a great product.
Paul (United Kingdom)
the Loop-Masters arrived today. I am very satisfied. They look good, feel good and you do not hear them, that is all I ever expected. Thanks alot or as we say in Germany: Dankeschön!
"I have been playing guitar and dealing with music people since the early 80s and trust me, Brian knows his stuff and is the most friendly guy you could possibly work with. I kept changing things on him and he still remained helpful and did not whine about anything. Very professional and courteous service. I ordered a totally custom product and he delivered big time and very quickly as well. Thanks, Brian, I will not hesitate to call you when I have any custom switching needs.
Bryan Sutherland San Jose, CA
unit received. everything looks great and it works perfectly. thanks again for making me something a little out of the ordinary. i will send you a pic some time when i complete the board i am building. thanks for good communication too.
Got the custom A/B/C box last week and gigged with it at our new dr jones album launch last Fri - I am very pleased.
Silent switching, it is built like a tank, it looks great and it did not break the bank. Your workmanship and customer service are excellent. Thanks also for all the layout & power changes I have requested.
I think my bass player will probably be making a similar purchase in the near future!
Keith (United Kingdom)
Its taken me a few weeks to get back around to thanking you for your stuff, your website, and all-around gift to working musicians. The Clean/Dirty switch is a simple, solid, brilliant product, and I really appreciate your "no problem" willingness to reconfigure the basic design for my own needs. As a harp player, the "tuner out" function would have been unused. Replacing it with a master bypass button means I not only have access to one-step switching betyween the two, I can also go straight into to the amp when the mood strikes, with the same economic motion. At present I am experimenting with a B3 organ sound that requires both an ElectroHarmonix POG, and a Line6 POD. The POD nails the rotary speaker effect, but has no bypass function. Now I can kick in these two effects together thru Loop 1 for the "organ solo", switch quickly to Loop 2 for a call-and-response with "dirty" harp, then hit the Bypass to drop back for clean comping behind my guitarist. And I can keep those rather bulky effects units behind my amp so my stage setup stays clean. Noiseless effortless customized functionality. Beautiful. And the choice of LED colors for specific functions is a small but thoughtful touch that makes it more like "my own little baby." Thanks again for the fast turnaround and professional, amiable, flexible and creative customer support. 11 stars out of 10!
Today I received the custom A/B box w/bypass loops you were so kind to design and build for me. Very nice work, Brian. I appreciate your extra effort on this project. It has already been incorporated into my set-up, and will reside there permanently. So cool to be able to switch amps, and then get the effects completely out of the signal path with the loops. My only regret is that I didn not find out about you years ago. I wish you continued success.
Thanks again, Simon.
What a gem this box is....It is allowing me to turn my single channel amp into a 3 channel one. and the "tuner out" adds the perfect touch for tuning on the fly.
(Referring to the "Clean/Dirty Effects Switcher™ w/Tuner Out & Master Bypass")
Just letting you that I received the looper. Thanks so much - it is perfect. Pretty much as I imagined and that is great. I am really appreciate all your help and the quick delivery, I know this is not my last order from Loop-Master. The Tap function works perfect. I am sure other customers will love this feature as well. The Master Bypass function really rocks as well. I had a slightly different idea what this would do but no lie - this way it is even better. This is gonna be the centerpiece of my pedalboard. Once I finish assembling the pedalboard I will e-mail you a picture, maybe you want to include it in your site or whatever.
Thanks again, keep up the great work!
