Get yourself 13 hours of stereo recording time and a pristine sound with the BOSS RC-5 Loop Station, a looper pedal for electric guitarists and keyboardists that offers a lot despite its compact size. With its backlit screen, you can quickly navigate parameters and monitor your loop status. The screen will change colors with each looping function, so you'll always know if you're recording, or overdubbing, or playing.
You can control a variety of functions with the solitary footswitch, but if that's not enough, you can expand outward via the control jack and TRS MIDI I/O paths. The pedal comes with 50 built-in rhythms, 99 preset-memory slots, and the ability to export and back up loops over USB.
