Great looper that I use for practicing alone at home. One of the features that I love is visual display of the loop length which is extremely helpful, especially if you don't have any previous experience with looper pedal. Also the boss-style silent switch is great, since it doesn't make annoying click and is very easy to engage and disengage. Press once to start recording, press one more time to instantly overdub. There is an option to configure pedal to start the playback on the second tap without overdubbing, which might be useful for some players. The only caveat is that erasing the loop (hold the switch for a second) would initially playback around a second of recorded loop, which makes it not very usable in live situation, but external footswitch totally solves the problem. Looper stores in memory whatever you recorded on it even when turned off, but there is no option to store multiple loops and switch between them like using presets. Build quality is perfect like on any other Boss stompbox, it is very solid and feels like this pedal would perfectly work for ages without failing. There was no AC adapter included and I've never tried running it from batteries - I'm powering the pedal with my power supply and don't have any hum or noise issues. In overall, great and very easy to use looper for home practice, which can be extended for live situations with external footswitch.

The Boss RC-1 is as easy to master as it gets.A click to record , a click to stop, two clicks to pause , and a long press on to delete your loop. It takes 15 seconds to learn how to use it.
Having said that I bought the particular pedal to work on my phrasing and groove with my bass guitar. A loop pedal will expose all your sound vagueness and technical aspects that a player might lack. I write and rewrite my basslines or my guitar themes which makes it a great tool for studying.Sometimes I write a bassline and let the loop on to grab my acoustic guitar and add themes over it
Soundwise it is very clear the level will give you the ease of listening to your loop to any level you wish to , so that your loop can become a good background to your soloes.
Its biggest advantage and disadvantage is that it does record anything you play and if you do not have a good sense of rythm , learning to loop might be a hard task at the beginning. So, if you do purchase this amazing pedal , don't get frustrated if your playing cannot make it fully usable.
Overall it is a great tool for studying , listening to yourself and even helping you monitor something that your are up to composing.
