Loops now come with 8 in every pack instead of the original 5. Not to mention it comes with a 20 minute video. He still managed keep the same price of $10. This is by far the best tool you can get at this price. It is a very easy sell to customers because of the amazing effects you can achieve with such an inexpensive, yet well produced item. Let's face it... The thread will break. But the customers enthusiasm for performing the effects with Loops will not. They will most definitely return for more.
