Boss RC-30 Loop Station

Gearank Recommendation

The RC-30 was on our recommended list for Looper Pedals from June 2020 until September 2021 when it was no longer available.


The Boss RC-30 comes in a twin pedal profile that sits between the bigger RC-300 and the smaller RC-3.

The same can also be said about its features, having a bit more control and connectivity than the RC-3, while retaining a smaller profile than the RC-300.

This pedal has stereo input and output jacks, making it compatible with other stereo effects and instruments like electronic keyboards.

The mic input adds even more value and functionality. There's also plenty of loop time to play with, with up to 3 hours of stereo recording time.

And if that's not enough, it supports USB connectivity for transferring audio data to and from your computer.

It also comes with a built-in drum (rhythm section) and effects.

If you're looking for a looper pedal that offers a bit more flexibility while still retaining a portable profile, then the Boss RC-30 is for you.
