Donner has proven to be a quality guitar pedal company in the last few years. I own about two dozen of their guitar pedals, 2 of their ukulele’s, their Wireless Bluetooth Page Turner, their Drumstick Holder, their Phantom Power Supply 48V 1- Channel for Condenser Microphones, and more, so I was excited to get their inexpensive Nano Looper Pedal on Amazon.
The Donner Nano Looper is 7th pedal in their Nano Series. You can check out my First Look Reviews of the other 6 nano pedals at the following links.

What Is It?
The Donner Tiny Looper Pedal is well built and works great. The small size of these nano pedals makes it easy to fit into any pedal board or keep on the floor for quick looping/songwriting ideas.
Once you figure out its simple controls, you can’t go wrong. Great to record ideas, record a chord progression to jam over, and use live as well.
The reverse and 1/2 speed effects are some cool extra features you don’t get in some higher priced pedals. These come in handy when you want to experiment. I probably won’t use the USB feature that much but it’s there if I need it.
Over-all I’m happy with my Looper and would recommend it.
What is a Looper Pedal?
In sort, a looper pedal records short passages played on an instrument and plays them back in a repeating loop. Loops can be mixed together to create complex rhythms and harmonies from layers of simpler parts. In normal use, a looper pedal is used to create a backing that you play along with.
Donner’s Product Description:

Nice gadget for Rock n roll bands. I was always wondering how they do that loop, and why they have all these buttons on the ground just next of the electric guitar players foot? I always wanted to learn how to play an electric guitar, but as an ex-merchant maritime captain, i manage learning just to play a little an acoustic classic guitar. But nowadays i am planning to go buy an electric guitar and start learning to play a bit, and I would like to have that loop gadget as well..I know it might be a little bit advance for me, but still, when I will make all these mistakes trying to learn how to play, I will be able to re-listen my mistakes. I think it will will be very helpful for me. Thank you for this amazing info!
There is such an abundance of information on here. My fiance is a guitarist and he’s always looking for the newest and best equipment for his sound, he’s had the same pedal for 4 years and he’s been thinking about something new and your website is the perfect place for him to get the reviews he needs for getting the exact one he wants. I’ll be passing on your website on to him, and thanks for the awesome information.
Thanks for the comment Carmen, I’m sure he will love this tiny looper guitar pedal.
Thanks for the comment.
Great Review! I don’t personally play a guitar but one of my friends are crazy about theres, I’ll be passing this onto him, I’m sure he will love it.
Cool, Thanks for the comment and sharing.
Great article. I’m just a super beginner on the guitar (at it for just over a year now) and I’m looking at getting my first electric guitar and also getting an electric acoustic. Would you recommend a looper for someone like me? The Donner that you reviewed seems like it could be a good place to start because of ease of use.
Yes, a looper is a great way to record yourself and play on top of what you recorded. I would recommend a looper for beginners. Thanks for the comment.
Great review! I guess that the fact that the pedal is so small is really good as you can fit it into any pedal board you have… How much does it cost?
I don’t put the price in the reviews as they change but at the moment they are about $59. Thanks for the comment.
Have you tried to import files into the looper? Did it work for you?
I have not tried.
Hi, Greg! I just found your site while looking for some tech support for my Donner Looper. I thought you might be able to help. I bought a used looper last year. It worked just fine right after I got it, but it has recently started flashing a green light only. I can’t get any other functions to work. I’ve tried a different power supply, but that didn’t fix it. I can’t find any documentation or Donner customer service info online unfortunately. Have you ever encountered this, and if so, do you know of a fix? Thanks in advance for considering my question. Great site! Thanks!
I’m not sure how to fix that. I would contact Donner. I haven’t had that problem. Sorry
