Boss RC30
The Newcomer, 18.04.2019
A great addition to my musical journey and education! Only bad thing about it is that if you "double tap" the record button it automatically defaults to 1 of the 5 preset effects. This can be ok when playing live if you have it set on "tempo delay" as it may not be noticed but if you don't set it to anything it defaults to "Bend Down" (the 1st option) which sounds like an extreme slowing down of everything and this will absolutely ruin your live performance (I had some very quizzical looks thrown my way when it happened.....and it happened twice in that song). Would be better if they moved this "Effects" option to the second pedal (Right hand side). Apart from this I love it!!!

Versatile and addictive to create multiple experiences.
Magus, 30.01.2019
Used primarily to record melodic phrases or simple chords, then "play" over with base or experimental variations. Excellent as a method of self-teaching.

Any signal injected can be recorded on two stereo tracks. The pedal can be used for various purposes. As many as the imagination can achieve.

Versatile, with microphone connection, USB, can record from external source, can function as a sample reader, etc. Excellent stimulant for creative work.

One of the best
Tas_Stef, 10.02.2019
What can I say about this legendary pedal? Great for studio,live and practise easy to use you can rec in minutes afterr opening. if you want a looper that does something more (rythm beats, double chanel recording, loop FXs, mic xlr) and will last propably for ever get this one.

Big improvement on my RC-20
Steven7148, 02.12.2014
This is a very big improvement on my RC-20 which I have gigged with extensively over the last 10 years.
Of course its easy to see its gone a little more digital with 99 tracks to store your loops.
A welcome addition in the XLR mic input. The mic input on the RC-20 was terrible, but thankfully they have corrected that.
Having 2 tracks to record is another great addition if you gig playing full songs. Now you can record a percussion track on track one and record your verse chords on track 2. Meaning you can knock those off the verse chords when moving into a chorus, leaving the percussion track still playing.

There are endless possibilities for one-man bands which, when practiced correctly, will improve your playing and performances.

Exactly what i wanted.
ChristosV, 19.08.2018
I use this product to practise scales and its exactly what i needed, drum loops are helpful and i can set the volume independently and the best of all is that i can record two different tracks so i can do something like a verse chorus. In my opinion its worth the few more money over the Boss RC-3.

Absolutely love it
Larry Lurex, 01.02.2018
Being the only guitar in a three piece acoustic band (guitar - percussion - vocals) it has been a struggle for me keeping our sound full, combining playing both rythm and lead melodies. It was ok but it always felt like something was missing. RC-30 saved the day! Even we couldn't believe how different we sounded when we first used it. Amazing! In term of structure, the RC-30 feels really solid and sturdy, I hope it's going to last for a really long time. It needs some practice to get used to handling it and can be a little tricky but nothing that can't be worked out eventually. The sound fx seemed kinda cool and fun at first but they're extremely limited and I never bothered myself with them again after the first few tries. Great machine overall, thanks Boss.

Making Ed Sheeran sound great for years now!
Douggie, 28.04.2015
I bought this loop pedal and its incredible.and if you're looking for a great loop for live performances this is the right choice. Don't get me wrong you need to practice with this before performing live but once you get the hang of it this thing will be your best friend on stage and everybody who says it is useless live is just hasn't spent enough time with it and just don't see all the possibilities of the pedal and do not try hard enough. It takes some work but it works. if you want to see just how well this thing can be used live watch any Ed Sheeran youtube video with it!

Vincent Michel, 25.08.2017
Very useful, Boss RC-30 is perfect for everybody and for every situation. Practical and easy to use. It offers to you the opportunity to play with yourself and creat a sound from rhythm to riff or chords and melody, voice or what you prefer. Now i need it like oxygen

Very Good Bit of Kit
31.01.2016
I'd previously used an Akai Loop pedal....functionality was know where near as good as the Boss. Very easy to use, but with many functions. Instinctive controls make it possible to quickly record, overdub, save, undo...all the features needed. The onboard effects are not great but I don't need or want those anyway,

I play Irish jigs and reels on mandolin plus bluegrass banjo - and run a professional band with my partner who plays violin. I use the Boss pedal to lay down guitar loops to practice with - and intend to use it live to record guitar loops when we are playing as a duo so that I can play lead parts on mandolin and banjo - instead of having to provide back up guitar.

There's a reason this pedal is so popular
danishbacon, 01.08.2017
Perfect for live looping/acoustic performance. Excellent signal quality and very convincing drum machine built in. Simple to use and of very high construction quality. Very pleased.

A must for solo musicians
RonanM, 19.07.2014
Solo gigs can be tedious at times. You get on stage and to be quite honest unless you're playing covers and/or the audience are there to see you specifically you can have quite a tough time making an impact with just yourself and a guitar.

Here's where the Boss RC-30 arrives and saves the day! Seeing the look on peoples faces as 1 person suddenly become a guitarist, bassist, drummer, backing vocals etc.

So lets get down to the nitty gritty. Firstly, this pedal is solidly built and like most Boss pedals it's designed to take a a lot of abuse from "enthusiastic" musicians. On battery power it's able to go and keep going! You can get a power cable, but you can survive quite happily on batteries.

As for user friendliness it takes a bit of getting used to. Double-tapping the left pedal makes the built-in effects kick in. Quite good if you actually mean to do it, quite embarrassing if you don't. To be fair, after a little bit of time using it you do get used to all the features.

To be honest, this is a piece of kit that you will buy once. It's well worth the investment!

Great product!
shaung, 01.08.2018
Fantastic product for the price, very well built. Lots of storage space on it so you never have to worry about running out. You can even load rhythm tracks on to your loops, as well as download tracks from the internet to load on. A great looper pedal for intermediate players.

Great product!
Roddy J., 07.11.2013
This product is very easy to use and the manual is great. The sound quality is excellent, and this machine has proved to be very reliable. It has transformed our live performance; however, I shall be buying the recommended pedal next to make it easier to use on stage, as this will make switching/deleting tracks and control of effects much easier. Treat this like a musical instrument - practice with it and you will acheive great results!

Boss boss boss boss boss.....
Greasycheeks, 07.09.2018
Picked this up to have to fun while practising at home really, im using it with a bass and its really addictive! Since i got it ive been playing twice as much as normal. The build quality is second to none as with all boss pedales. Its really easy to use straight out of the Box but a little reading is required as a lot of the buttons have more than one function.
The beats and effects are a nice bonus and you can save hours of recordings/loops on the 99 channels.
For all the parents out there... my kids love playing with this! I ended up buying a mic for it as it has a dedicated mic in and they spend hours playing with it.. getting quite inventive with singing, beat boxing and evening sampling sounds through the mic....brilliant.

Oriel, 04.02.2014
It is really built like a tank!
I use this to plug-in mic and acoustic guitar and I am satisfied of the recording result.
And it has 99 memories on it so you can store as many version you want.

Great pedal
lianesilva, 14.01.2019
This is a great tool, just what I needed for my live performances. I play live music for a living and sing as well, and this pedal allows for more complex and lively arrangements. It is also easy to carry, the sound quality is good and the loops sound seamless, provided you have enough practice to make them on time, of course.

Very good looper
Scion, 27.08.2015
I bought this for gigging and so far it has been very reliable. Loops are make and samples are all very useful. Built like a tank! I don't even need to use a mixer when I have this as my live gigs are me and my guitar. Only complaint is the choice of effects. The only one I use is lofi and I think the other ones should be thought out better. Battery's don't last long so if gigging I recommend getting the 9v power adapter. Overall very sturdy with easy use and perfect for beginners and experienced players alike! :)

Boss
Nikolay6708, 26.11.2016
Boss is the boss.
Even when you open the box and take the device out you realize that's a solid metal construction and very sturdy build.
I checked all different brand names and reviews and stopped at this one, it's simply the best of it's rate if you are looking for something that's not highest or lowest of the rate, just in the middle of the price rate!
Perfectly build and i hope to use it for a long period.
