What we say:

BOSS really did come along early to the looping party and dominate the market with a few well placed and effective looping devices. Recognising the potential for loopers to solo performers as well as creative players in an ensemble, BOSS’s RC units are amongst the best-selling and most recognisable loopers available anywhere. Their clear functionality and typically robust quality control make BOSS RC loopers something you can rely on.

The RC-1 here is BOSS's most compact looper. Some said it couldn't be done because it would be too fiddly to work but those naysayers will have to eat some humble pie because not only have BOSS managed to cram an effective stereo looper into a compact pedal, it's also become their best selling pedal of the last couple of years!

With a maximum of 12 minutes' stereo recording, there is plenty of available looping time to indulge in your inner Ed Sheeran or Robert Fripp (delete as appropriate) while the pedal shows you the status of your loop via an innovative 24 segment circular LED. It's good for determining where you are in the duration of the loop. You can record, overdub, undo and delete to your heart's content. This unit runs on batteries or an optional AC Adaptor.


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 like 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!

Main Features
  • Straightforward and easy to operate
  • Newly designed loop indicator displays the current loop mode (Rec/Overdub/Play)
  • Runs on a single 9-volt alkaline battery (approximately 4.5 hours of battery life)
  • Can be used with an optional AC adaptor (PSA series: sold separately)
  • 12 minutes of stereo recording time
  • Stereo inputs and outputs
  • Flexible external footswitch options
  • Recorded phrase is retained in memory even after the RC-1 is turned off

Great peddle. Very easy to use - intuitive feel to record, save and play and overdub. Big improvement on the ( still very good ) previous Boss Loop Peddle

Geoff T. - 5/5/2021

My son is very happy with it .. it eats batteries so I would by a power supply

Neil G. - 29/4/2021

Great item for building ideas. Not the cheapest but I trust the Boss brand and have always found them to be reliable

Richard N. - 9/2/2021

Best looper around, seriously ups your playing

Matthew W. - 8/2/2021

Nice pedal which isn?t too hard to operate. Got to grips with it pretty fast.

Rory P. - 1/2/2021

Could not fault the item. The delivery was extremely quick and they refunded the money as it didn?t come next day which I paid for which I thought was so nice as it was not their fault.

maureen n. - 27/1/2021

An excellent looper, simple to use and does just what I need, i.e. record then playback a chord progression for me to play over.

Robert M. - 30/12/2020

Ian M. - 1/11/2020

Shona D. - 6/10/2020

It?s a game changer for solo open mic gigs. It takes a wee bit of getting used to stopping Recording the loop and starting it To play back but that?s a case of practice makes perfect.

Robin B. - 29/8/2020

It's so easy to use, the foot pedal is a decent size and you can adjust the lever in it to suit how much pressure you want to apply. Takes some getting used to as a totally new instrument but it's just practice required! Be sure to order the power supply separately if you don't have one as it's supplied as a standalone unit!
