Boss RC-300 Loop Station
Being the most powerful pedal-based loop station from Boss, RC-300 continues to be the most sought after looper in the market today.
Its combination of looping, effects and deep real-time control helped it win the top spot in our Best Loop Pedal Roundup.
Looping has opened up a myriad of sonic texture possibilities for musicians, manufacturers have noticed this interest and have started offering various types of looper pedals, from straightforward stompboxes to complex loop stations.
To handle the needs of complex multi-track real-time looping, Boss used their experience with floor-based multi-effect pedals to create their flagship loop station, the RC-300. It boasts of impressive features, most notable its three synchronized stereo looping capability with dedicated volume knobs and transport-control footswitches for each track. This opens up the possibility of building up and triggering multi-track loops in real-time.
The unit comes with an XLR input with phantom power, this allows you to plug-in your bass, guitar, keyboard, microphones and use them as part of your loop. The RC-300 can let you record up to three hours of looping into its internal memory, more than enough for a typical song or set performance. It also comes with unlimited Undo and Redo for introducing interesting changes as you perform.
As expected from Boss, the RC-300 also comes with a wealth of useful instrument and vocal effects, which you can also control in real-time via the expression pedal. Effects include Flanger, Phaser, Transpose, Modulator, vocal effects and many more. A generous control panel is also provided for setting up and for convenient performance manipulation of parameters.
Other features include rhythm guides, preloaded audio, USB connectivity and auxiliary input. All these features are packed inside a tank tough housing in a familiar multi-effect pedal format.

When you consider how much time and effort you put into getting your rig to sound just the way you want, it makes sense to ensure your guitar cables are also up to the job - after all they're an important part of the tone chain. Also remember that occasionally things will go wrong, so always carry at least one spare cable to gigs and rehearsals.
