Product Description

Boss RC-3 Loop Station: Station To Station of Loops

Boss Loop Station pedals have become the de facto, go-to standard for guitarists, bassists, keyboardists; any musician looking to jump headlong into the sampling and looping world. Compared to other Boss loopers, the RC-3 Loop Station might be the smallest of the group, but don't let its diminutive size fool you--this pedal offers a full three hours of mono record time!

The Boss RC-3 Loop Station Has What You Want, The Way You Want It

Accurately punching in and punching out while playing your parts, tap-dancing your other stompboxes, and trying to sing at the same time is no small chore. As usual, Boss thought of everything when designing the RC-3, including "real drums" rhythm guide for jamming along or use as a coach when setting up your loops before the gig. Alternately, use the AUX input to store your own backing tracks, click track, or favorite drum loops right to the Boss RC-3. You can also connect straight to a PC through its USB output and import or export WAV audio!

The Boss RC-3 Loop Station Fits Just Like A Glove

The single-pedal form factor makes the RC-3 fit right into just about any pedalboard, nestling high fidelity looping among the rest of your favorite effects. The Boss RC-3 is also a great fit for your wallet, representing the most affordable entry in the Boss Loop Station series. If you've been toying with the idea of live sampling and looping but have found yourself intimidated by confusing feature sets or turned off by lofty price tags, the Boss RC-3 Loop Station has your name on it. Well, you know, not literally... unless your name happens to be Boss. Or Loop Station.

- 99 onboard memories for storing loops
- USB 2.0 port allows you to connect to a PC and import / export WAV audio

Overall: I am having a blast with this loop station. Gotten to the point where it sounds like a full blown band with just one guitar. Now, I just sit back a play to my own background music. Anyway I want it........

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Does as expected. Great pedal."
Sound: Sound quality seemed good. This is the first and only pedal I've owned, so i can't compare to anything else. I played a Casino through a Vox Valvetronics amp. The recording seemed to be a bit soft, but can be adjusted with the output volume. Ease of Use: Again, rating 8s across the board as I have no other comparisons to make, but it's plug and play. Super easy to use. I didn't like the original set-up with the record-overdub-playback order with the pedal, but it's super easy to change the order. Instruction very easy to follow. Quality: Seems solid. The single pedal rocks around a bit on the floor, but that's more the nature of its size. It's a solid piece of equipment. Value: For what I wanted this is totally worth it. Love the included rhythm tracks. Super easy to use. Other items in this range seem short on features, so this is worth it. Overall: I got what I wanted and expected out of this pedal. Easy to use and great if you're on a budget.
Style of Music: rock

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
