As a multi-effects pedal, the Vox VLL1 at the very least crams a lot of useful stuff into a small, easy to transport package. It’s also a great value, considering everything it can do—for less than two hundred bucks, you’ll get a looper plus eleven other effects. This makes it a great choice if you’re looking for that versatility. On the other hand, it doesn’t quite live up to some of the other options on the list when it comes to the looper side of the equation.

Like the RC-30 or Ditto X4 above, the Lil’ Looper has two separate loop tracks. You can toggle each track on and off independently, but there’s only one master level knob on the pedal, so you can’t tweak the balance between the tracks. The Loop Quantize feature is a nice touch, letting you synchronize the tracks to the same length or tempo.

The biggest thing missing from this pedal is the option to store loops. There are no memory slots and it doesn’t have as much recording time to work with as most pedals in the price point. The 90 seconds of on-board memory is enough if you do mostly live looping, but if you prefer to record and store your loops, you’ll want to look elsewhere.

When it comes to the loop effect itself, you can get the same quality and functionality for less from other pedals. Where the VLL1 becomes an attractive option is if you’re looking for an array of effects in addition to the looper, and want to get it on a budget.

Features:

  • Dimensions: 6.5” X 5.7” X 2.4”
  • Controls: Effect selector, loop level
  • On-board effects: 12
  • Recording time: 90 seconds
  • Power: 6 AA batteries or AC adapter (not included)
