The Boss RC-300 Loop Station is the new “flagship” looper from Boss. Being hailed as the second coming before it was even released, the Boss RC-300 has a lot to live up to. Not only was it's predecessor, the RC-50 Loop Station, loaded with features, Digitech's competing looper pedal, the JamMan Delay, is similarly large and loaded with cool features. With such stiff competition, the RC-300 Loop Station has to deliver something very special to stand out from the crowd.
The ZVEX Lo-Fi Loop Junky is the antithesis to the modern digital looper pedal. It's all analog, with no A-to-D Conversion of any kind, it samples for up to 20 seconds, and everything you record into it will sound totally different coming out the other end. It features lots of hiss, noise, distortion, and other analog artifacts and is capable of making your little guitar loop sound like a scratched, warbly old record.
The Boss RC-3 Loop Station is the new compact looper pedal from Boss for 2011, replacing the older Boss RC-2 Loop Station as Boss's top-o-the-line compact looper.

Boss kicks off 2011 with two new looper pedals, the RC-3 Loop Station and the RC-30 Loop Station. The RC-30 Loop Station is a twin pedal and the larger of the two. It's a multitrack looper with two synchronized stereo tracks and built-in loop effects. Overall, Boss offers several improvements over its older twin pedal, the Boss RC-20XL, while some musician's still prefer the older model.
