Review of Boss RC-30 Looper Pedal

My daughter is the major musician and song writer in the family. I wanted a looper for both voice and guitar. All I can say is that she took it right out of the box and in about an hour, I was listening to her new cover song with her playing both rythm and lead guitar AND a three way harmony. She essentially watched a You Tube of a young lady using this very looper for the song for a cover of "Electric Feel". She loves it, so I am the good Dad. My last purchase from Sweetwater was a great Taylor Guitar. They always deliver what they say. The staff is so knowledgeable and take the time for a novice like me to understand all pros and cons of the equipment. You can not go wrong with Sweetwater.

So usefull for music students

This will probably do more than I'll ever need for it to do, but for learning music, it's such a useful tool. I can record a chord progression for a song, and then go back and play the melody. This forces me to get the timing right much better than with just a metronome.

Everything I expected and some...

The boss rc-30 was a perfect fit for my needs. Very portable and easy to use. Because this was my first loop pedal, getting the timing down on the recording was slightly tricky; however with a little practice, I got the hang of it quickly. The sweep filter effect is awesome for someone looking to get spacey on their recoded loop! My only wish is that I would be able to keep that effect while soloing live over my loop. Another recommendation for someone interested in purchasing this loop pedal would be to also purchase separate the ac adaptor. Otherwise, you will blow through your battery supply. But I would definitely recommend this pedal to someone!

Great pedal for practice

A great pedal, I use it for practice. Set rhythms for the music being practice on per song basis and then add all guitar parts and practice guitar lead parts. Great! It gets you ready for the weekend worship set. All so use it as a drum machine for playing small group worship. Many more great features, connecting to computer downloading sets then creating more sets and putting them on computer then uploading set as you need them. Great!

Sweetwater Advice

Jared Kalish

The Loop Station is a staple in my bass rig for two main reasons. First, I use it as a practice tool for getting my soloing chops ready for a gig. Just loop a track and away you go! Second, I've been able to create a way for me to put down a simple bass line while playing live and solo over the rest of the band AND myself to really create a unique sound onstage. Stomp a few effects pedals during the solo and change up your sound to really stand out!
