Overall: Had the orig. ditto for years thinking it was alright. Then purchased the EHX Nano 360 and the EHX 720,not being happy with either I returned and purchased the RC-3 Boss and it was so intuitive and feature laden I wish I'd have purchased this one first. The boss rc-3 is hands down my fav looper. I hate complicated pedals and this has Sooo many easy to use features that none of the other loopers have is unbelievable, especially being this looper isn't much more than it's competition-if you could even call it that. Plus with all the updates over the years. Thanks Boss! Am super fussy and REALLY liking this pedal. And thanks to zZounds for always giving me the best prices!

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.

Overall: Does exactly what it is supposed to. The sound is true to what you played. And the volume of the loop is great for control at a live setting.
