Hi Butch,

First of all thanks for the workshops and everything at Launde! And second, we spoke about loop pedals and gear for busking and performing, and you told me you had some information about that that you could send me and that i had to send a message to you about it, so here it is :D I hope to hear from you!

Take Care!
