I've got one of the 8-second pedals, and it's great.  You can find them 
used, if you're patient, for under $150.  A great starting place for 
looping.  All the features of the JamMan and Echoplex are wonderful (I've 
got an echoplex and an assortment of other long delay lines), but you can 
easily get into serious looping without shelling out the big bucks.
