Great for parctice
OOJP, 17.08.2019
Recording, overdubbing, undoing and resetting are all easy after first reading the manual. The output knob works more like a gain stage than a volume, so you might still run into issues getting your lead lines stick out. Still, the knob works great for rolling down distortion on the backing chord progression. Comes with some basic and somewhat low quality drum tracks. I've used this mainly for practicing and trying out ideas, and it works great for that purpose, though there are cheaper alternatives that probably would have cut it.

Does what it is supposed to
09.07.2014
Am using it mainly for practice so can't comment on live suitability or such. But for my purposes, it is an excellent piece of kit. The main gripe is with the slightly complex user interface. Had to resort to the manual to turn on auto start (excellent feature, by the way for a beginner like me) and have still not figured out why it does not work for all memory slots.

Not the best sound quality, when used in recording mode
glamrock, 14.02.2014
I used the Boss RC3 mainly for sampling .wav files and firing them up while playing the guitar in live situations. For this purpose, i really recommend it for being an easy to user and good sounding loop station. PC connection works fast an reliable and it has plenty of recording time. As a live looper, its not the same. The one-button design makes it less intuitive to use, using an additional footswitch is recommended. Also the soundquality of the recorded signal is not as good as expected, as it lacks on high-frequencies and therefore sounds a bit muddy, compared to the original signal. As there are not much competitors out there, its still worth buying it. The other devices also have their faults.

Awesome tool
DrewGR, 06.01.2019
It works great (as advertised) and doesn't color the sound as far as a can tell. It's a great tool to have on any pedalboard for hours of practice. I would definitely recommend the "expression" pedal to go along with it. Other than that, the drum sounds are ok for anything but recording a pro album. It's not a full drum machine, but for a little box it's great.
As always, top notch built quality from Boss!
