When thinking about guitar loop pedals, you may have only considered using them for your electric guitar. This is a big mistake! You can definitely use them on acoustic guitars too, and make some pretty amazing sounds live.
You can create beautiful melodies and put underlying chords in, and then harmonics over the top, to produce a flurry of music raining down upon your listeners or audience. You may be thinking, “I bet there’s only a select few pedals available for this sort of thing though”, this is entirely untrue. There are as many available to use with the acoustic guitar as there are electric. In fact you can actually use the pedals you use for your electric for your acoustic and vies versa. It won’t affect the quality of sound one bit, there’s pretty much no difference. There may be some people out there that frown upon this idea, but that really doesn’t matter, if you can get one pedal that crosses paths, it saves you money, and doesn’t affect your sound whatsoever.
You can get decent pedals for pretty much every price range with guitar loop pedals, of course if you pay more you will get some extra’s and benefits.
