The Best Loopers IMO
Dect 31.10.2021
I have used many BOSS loopers over the years - the RC-1, RC-3, RC-30 and I am now using the RC-10R and the RC-5. I love how easy they are to use and the sound quality of these is so much better than the previous RC-3 which I upgraded from. These ones with storage are also great for saving song ideas on the fly and also for loading up backing tracks. Then there is the BOSS build quality - they last forever. The absolute best part of all the BOSS loopers though is the external switch jack. This means you can use an external button as a dedicated stop switch. This makes things much easier as you no longer have to double press to stop. I have even gotten small stop buttons built into my loopers to save space. It be great if BOSS offered this mod from the factory.

Welcome back Boss!
E-dub 06.06.2022
I had a Boss looper before and while I never had an issue with recording or sound quality the interface was not intuitive.

The RC-5 is so much easier to use. I also added an FS-7 (set to navigate loops). I mainly use this to catch licks and riffs and leave them on the looper until I record it in a song. This iswhere the RC-5 Shines with it's 99 slots there plenty of spots to park ideas until they can be worked out. There have been plenty of times where I get another idea before I've worked out the one on the looper and it is lost forever.

The sound quality is great and the interface is quite easy to navigate. I did watch a video on how to set it up with a footswitch and that saved me loads of time during the initial set up.

Is it expensive? Yes. Is it worth it? I think so, I would buy it again if lost or stolen.

Works perfectly, sounds good, the menu is a bit difficult to navigate but once you read the manual you are set.

Superb sound and many functions
czdali 08.10.2021
If you look for a simple looper and don't like reading manuals this beast is perhaps not ideal for you. However if you want a compact pedal that will record and dub loops with fantastic sound quality and has a ton of other functions there is probably no better choice on the market.
