I used one of those (Klempt Echolette, mfg in W. Germany) back in the
proverbial "good old days" (1960's). I was never able to do loops - by my
definition - with it and relied on 1/2 track reel to reel machines for
that. However, I did use it for reverb, delay, and as a preamp. It
produced outstanding overdrive and crunch for that time period and the
"green eye" was very cool.
