This pedal is totally amazing. It has 16 minutes of recording time and 11 loop phrases to store them in. I play jazz so I can record a chord progression and then solo over it. The pedal also has 33 drum patterns and has patterns for many different styles of music. The pedal allows you to set your own tempo before you play and the pedal also has a guide which can set the tempo if you have not set it already. The loop station may be a little expensive, but it is worth it. It has helped me and it can help you.

Just purchased this week. After reading entire booklet on the operation of this very well rated pedal. I have to disagree with the all the other five star opionions I did make my decision to purchase from all the evaluations people did. However it is far to complex in a very small package to use on stage and can messed up very easily. Im using a Tripple Rec Messa Boogie with Line 6 Cab.

Steve: Guitar - 20 years experience

By Steve101

from South Australia

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

The abslolute best Boss pedal I have ever baught. A tiny bit expensive, but after a few hours of playing, well worth the doe. I use it with my Boss ME50 effects, and magic stuff happens every time. Been playing for almost 20 years, but nothing has inspired me more than the RC-2! Very highly reccommended!

I wish i would of bought one earlier

By rush10

from oh

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

Just bought this thing so i have only had it 1 day. So far it is very easy to use and i wish i would have gotten one years ago. This thing is amazing. The auto start feature makes it a piece of cake to loop a track and jam out. Now i dont have to deal with lame guitar players who cant handle hardcore metal. Although it was a little expensive im sure ill get much use out of it.

Pricey, but a hell alot of fun to play with.

By Robet C.

from Sacramento CA

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

This Boss effect pedal is a very neat gadget that is a blast to play. It's almost like your jamming to your own one man band. You can choose from one of multiple drum beats, set your tempo, lay down a guitar track, loop it and jam over the top of it. I just recently bought this loop station and have only begun to tap into its full potential. So If you are just a garage jammer or a serious aspiring musician, this pedal can defintaly help you with your timing and live feel playing.

Awesome Loopstation

By Dean2020

from Greenville, South Carolina

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

Bought it yesterday! I highly recommend the RC-2 but it is on the expensive side (ouch). This box is easy to use and worth the green. Drums are realistic but no jazz rhythms.

addicting!

By Charlie

from new jersey

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

This thing really is amazing. You can loop one riff and solo for hours without even realizing it. Its so much fun to use and you'll want to keep using it. The only problem i have with it is that once you put in a second loop to play with the original one you can't delete the second one without deleting the first. Or maybe you can and I just haven't figured it out yet. It's also a little pricy but once you play it you won't regret it. Go buy it. seriously

Great Pedal

By Greg

from DC area

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

I've been looking for years for something like this and the RC-2 fits the bill almost perfectly. Once you figure it out--not the easiest task--the creative possibilities are endless. My wife has threatened to take it away because she says I haven't returned from the basement since I bought the thing two weeks ago. The only con--and it is a doozy--is that the directions are very nearly useless. Only after hours of fiddling (and not a small amount of frustration) have I begun to understand how it works enough to make it do what I want when I want. Other than that, rock on!

Your Second Guitarist at a Step

By Ubetcha

from Cincinnati, OH

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

This little pedal is my favorite. For practicing solo, it's a dream. You can lay down your rhythm or a drum loop and shred for days. My band searching a long time for a second guitar to thicken up our sound, after many failures I went out and grabbed one of these; problem solved.

Definately worth the money! I love it!

By Thomas Wilkins

from Newark, NJ

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

I bought this pedal a couple of weeks ago and I can't stop using it! I was looking for something to capture/loop my guitar riffs and I found this. I thought it would be difficult to figure out but after 20 mins of playing around, I almost have it mastered! After 2 weeks I'm still finding things out about it! Like the 4 slamming backing tracks in ports 8, 9, 10 and 11! The only CONS I have are the fact you have to disconnect the pedal from your pedal line to use the AUX input. But I'm sure there's a work-around for THAT! all in all, it's an excellent addition and travel partner! My next move is the BR-600! Put these two together and the possabilities are endless!

Great pedal to get creative with

By Spirit shaker rocks

from Hartford county, CT

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

This unit is amazing for layering guitar loops, but I bought it for the PA for special effect samples on stage.... the bell for Hells bells- the wolf howling for Hush- the Hellion intro before electric eye... and it works perfectly for this type of stuff and it's very easy to use and modify. Highly reccommended!

Play with yourself!

By Sahid Mejia

from San Diego, CA.

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

Boss did it again!!! I'm more than just satisfied, this little guy helps me advance further in my technique and style. A bit pricey for some, but it really does the trick for those that don't have a band or who to practice with. I use through my Boss ME-50 and always get great loops. The drum patters are really good, and have studio-like sound. It does take a little time to get used to it, but once you've got it down, looping is fun and easy. My only complaint is that there is no mic input, but that can be arranged with some cablework. I definitely recommend to everybody!

boss rc-2

By buckshot127

from fort worth, tx

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

i've never owned one of these so i have nothing to compare it to. but, i haven't found anything i don't like about it. i don't play live, just sit at home and play. this thing will keep you busy for hours, it's fun to play with whether you're trying work on soloing over an acoustic cover or just jamming to a drum beat. definitely worth the money, i can tell an improvement already.

Worth The Money

By Will

from Cincinnati, OH

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

This pedal is sweet. I was a little nauseous when I handed the cashier the money but it was worth it. I use it to record a couple chords then I solo over it. I don't use this during band practice because it's a little to hard to manipulate. If you want something to use during band, I would look at the more expensive boss looper pedals. It's well worth the money.

Epic loop!!

By Alex

from sacramento, california

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

This thing is awesome... I had been playing for 6 years and was o.k. I went out and bought this thing and my skill skyrocketed. Just play a few chords or whatever you want and you solo or make a rythm off of that. It is so easy and helps you wether you are just messing around or trying to perfect a solo for your song! Go buy it!

recording studio stompbox

By that one guy

from ionia MI

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

I just got this for cristmass granted i was a litle confused becouse it didnt come with a manual, but after the first couple of minouts the pedal became a sinch to oporate.as for all the revews that say the drum beats come out distorted, just put your amp on a clean seting and throw a distortion peadal on before the loop station then only your guitar will be distorted... thers a volume controle for the drum beat and also for your playbacks, all in all its an amazing peadal seariously if you can fit 16 minoutes into each of 11 slots for playback and save,change timeing ,dub over dub and dealeat remove and replace your over lays its just amazing how they can put almost a whole recording studio into one lite bity stomp box i would be vary angry if it were to get stollen definetly a five star stomp box you wont find these at the local pawn shop

fun, but not a must have

By Mason

from minnesota

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

This is an awesome pedal, but not the best loop station in my opinion. yes its easy to control and what not, but if you record something in a clean tone, then wanna solo over it with some dist. , the recording switches with you and gets that dist too. it sounds very messy and cluttered. it does the same thing with the drum beats, which sounds even worse. its also not practical live either, unless you want to be dancing around on stage trying to get the pedal to work. so i dont see any real reason why you would NEED this pedal, unless you have a lot of extra money and no friends to play with.

If you looking for loop at moderately low price BUY THIS!

By Jaylo

from NJ

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

This pedal is awesome its like a full band in one powerful stompbox. First off this has drumlines, 16 minutes(in 30 second increments) of loop time, and overdubing. The digitech hardwire looper is less and has delay but the loop it only has 20 seconds of loop time and no drum lines. This pedal also has multible phrase selects to save up to ten phrases. The digi tech doesnt. The only thing I dont like about it is I use this as a rythm in my band... yeah thats this ones weak point and the digi tech hardwires strength. Sometimes when looping something I want looped alone with nothing in the backround it will sometimes play a drumline with it or play some of the loops on it. And a tip if your amp has built in effects dont use them while this is looping the loop will have the effect to.

Great loop Station

By Forrest Kohl

from Modesto CA

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

I bought this two days ago and its been a great addition to my pedal board. It makes writing and layering riffs very easy. the only problem is that for some people it may be a little complicated but after a while you'll be able to use it fine if you read the manual. its definitely worth the price

it is so great!

By francois

from NY

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

Buy it! This baby is worth every penny. For practicing, it is the best friend you can have. In a few clicks you record a part you want to work on, and it plays, for hours if needed. I have it for a few weeks now and i improved a lot my playing. Live, it's a cool toy, audience loves it. Overdub 2 or 3 parts, let it play and go have a smoke. I play some solo gigs, and it feels good to be able jam, me, myself and I.

Great Loop

By NJguitardude

from New Jersey

Comments about Boss RC-2 Loop Station Effect Pedal:

Ive had this loop for almost a week now and it is amazing. I love all the drum beats you are able to record with! They are very realistic. I would highly recommend this to basically anyone who plays guitar and wants to get a little serious.
