Since I've never tried out the Boomerang, I can only speak
for the JamMan. It's a good sounding unit, but I wish it
had a more sophisticated delay mode.

Heh. *Tell* me about it. You'd think that would be an
obvious feature to have, but like most modern digital
boxes - and I'm thinking mainly of recorders here - that's
a feature they figured nobody used.  Hell, even my fostex
r8 only does about a whole step or so. I'd really like to
be able to do the classic baby laugh down an octave trick.

You're probably right. On the other hand, I figure that
when it comes to fx, the only *real* fx you need is your
chops. Everything else is gravy. So, fx come and fx go,
but good chops and musicality are an ongoing, eternal
