RC-1 Loop Station
Look No Further. The Answer for Looping is BOSS!

The BOSS RC-1 is the simplest and most user-friendly Loop Station ever. Since the RC-20 Loop Station was first released in 2001, BOSS has led the way by continually releasing new looping products. Though they've been used and enjoyed by various looping artists and performers, BOSS still pursued an easier and more affordable solution. The RC-1 is a straightforward looper that is easy to operate. Experience the fun of looping when you record, playback, overdub, and undo or redo loops using this compact BOSS stompbox. And of course, the RC-1 retains the BOSS quality and performance that musicians around the world have come to expect and rely on.

On the top panel, there is a new and innovative loop indicator, which consists of a 24-segment LED laid out in a circular pattern. You can quickly and easily determine the current status of the Rec/Overdub/Play modes. With a maximum 12 minutes of stereo recording time, the RC-1 is capable of capturing any extended performance that you can create or imagine! The stereo in/out jacks can be used with stereo effects and amplifiers. Additionally, they allow you to connect stereo instruments, such as synthesizers. Other convenient features include battery and AC power, as well as flexible external foot switching capabilities. The RC-1 is an especially great partner to start enjoying looping!

You can change the way it sequences your pedal stomps for looping, I found this useful as I didnt like the default settings. it is as straight forward as you can get and it is highly recomended if you are new to guitar because it will make YOU the listener of what you play, and it will give you a feel for actually crating layers in music.... for the price, It is an awesome pedal, the biggest downside is that it has limit in its range, and it has no memory... I would ( now having bought THIS pedal ) spend the extra dough to have the one with memory banks, BUT... if price is an issue.. this pedal will serve you well... even with another, future loop pedal purchase, I would maybe put this one in a different place in a pedal chain, to gain or loose effects in my loops...
