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!


  • Straightforward and easy to operate

  • Stereo inputs and outputs
  • Flexible external footswitch options
  • Recorded phrase is retained in memory even after the RC-1 is turned off

Simple and sweet


Simple and easy to use. Great first looper. Awesome tool for working on song ideas or for solo jamming



Great gift


I bought this as a birthday gift for a friend. He has used it everyday since and has been excited about it. Simple, but effective pedal.



Perfect intro to pedals/looping


As advertised. Super easy to use and does what its supposed to.



Super fun pedal, might get another one!


Awesome pedal, really fun to use if you don't have a band to play with you. So many different ways to create a song with it layering up your different riffs together into a one man band



Best place to buy gear


Simple and effective looper pedal.



Simple and Great Looper!


This is among one of the simplest loopers. It sounds to me to be extremely transparent -- the tone in is the same as the tone out. The overdubbing and undo features are effective, but a little tricky with only a single foot switch. This form factor is very pedal board friendly, which was a big lure for me. I am also a fan of Boss and Roland products in general. I have not tested this, but I believe the stereo capabilities offer a ton of flexibility, whether connecting a second instrument with a combined output, or two discrete signal paths.



Game Changer!


This is a must for any guitar player wanting to practice lead! It's easy to use and a total game changer! Highly recommended!



Great Product - Buy Without Hesitation!


Great looper. The dial of lights is helpful in timing the loops. This product is well built and will last for years and years. Easy to use and does the job. Buy without hesitation - five stars!



Its amazing
