The RC-1 is the simplest and most user-friendly BOSS Loop Station ever, and it's a ton of fun!

Since the RC-20 Loop Station was first released in 2001, BOSS has led the way by continually releasing new looping products. Though they’ve been used and enjoyed by various looping artists and performers, BOSS still pursued an easier and more affordable solution. The RC-1 is a straightforward looper that is easy to operate. Experience the fun of looping when you record, playback, overdub, and undo or redo loops using this compact BOSS stompbox. And of course, the RC-1 retains the BOSS quality and performance that musicians around the world have come to expect and rely on.

On the top panel, there is a new and innovative loop indicator, which consists of a 24-segment LED laid out in a circular pattern. You can quickly and easily determine the current status of the Rec/Overdub/Play modes. With a maximum 12 minutes of stereo recording time, the RC-1 is capable of capturing any extended performance that you can create or imagine! The stereo in/out jacks can be used with stereo effects and amplifiers. Additionally, they allow you to connect stereo instruments, such as synthesizers. Other convenient features include battery and AC power, as well as flexible external footswitching capabilities. The RC-1 is an especially great partner to start enjoying looping!

  • Recorded phrase is retained in memory even after the RC-1 is turned off

I purchased the RC-1 specifically for busking with an acoustic guitar. I like it because it is easy to use and can run on a 9-volt battery.

      Comments about Boss Rc-1 Loop Station Guitar Effect Pedal:

      Super easy to use and your tone isn't colored too much by this pedal. It's also made by Boss which means it will last forever. Very good looper for practice or limited use during a gig.
