Boss has announced the RC-1 Loop Station, the new entry-level model in the company’s lineup of dedicated loop recording devices.
From the company:
Battery-powered and affordable, the RC-1’s straightforward operation makes it easier than ever for guitarists, bassists and other musicians to incorporate the fun of looping into their live performances and practice sessions.
For more than a decade, Boss has led the industry in loop recording technology. Five current Loop Station products serve the needs of all types of musicians, and looping functions are integrated into many other Boss products. Designed with guitarists and bassists in mind, the RC-1 sheds the more sophisticated features found in other Loop Stations, offering a streamlined approach that will appeal to both beginning players and advanced musicians who like to keep things simple.
Built to record loops and nothing else, the RC-1 is all about instant musical satisfaction and creative enjoyment. Housed in the famous, ultra-durable Boss compact pedal case, the stripped-down RC-1 lets players experience the fun of spontaneous loop creation with no complicated controls or features to get in the way.
Loop recording has never been more intuitive and hassle-free than it is with the RC-1. Record, overdub, play/stop, undo/redo, and clear operations are all accomplished with one integrated pedal, while the loop level is controlled with the panel’s single knob. The unique circular loop indicator features 24 multi-colored LEDs, providing instant feedback on the operation mode and cycle status of the current loop.
The RC-1 offers high-quality sound with up to 12 full minutes of stereo recording time. The last loop session is stored in memory even when the power is turned off, so players can preserve their performances for the next practice session or gig. The pedal can be powered with an optional PSA-series AC adapter or a single 9-volt battery. Up to 4.5 hours of battery operation provides great convenience for busking, street performing, open-mic nights, and other mobile playing situations.
Just like other Boss compact pedals, the RC-1 integrates easily onto a pedalboard loaded with other stomps. Dual inputs and outputs let guitarists and bassists with sophisticated effects setups loop in true stereo. By using just one input and one output, the RC-1 can be used in a standard mono rig as well. Stereo operation also allows synth players to loop without sacrificing the rich, full stereo sound of their instruments.
Users can connect an optional external pedal to the RC-1 to expand their real-time control options if desired. The new FS-7 Dual Footswitch is an ideal companion, offering control of the looper’s stop, clear, and undo/redo functions in an extremely compact footprint. The FS-7 includes status LEDs, and comes with a DC splitter cable to allow a single PSA adapter to provide power to both the RC-1 and FS-7.

iTrack Pocket is a portable, high quality stereo microphone and guitar input that lets you create and share exceptional videos using your iPhone.
Designed for singer-songwriters who want their YouTube videos to sound as great as they look, it lets you easily apply mastering effects and share directly to YouTube with outstanding quality your subscribers will love.
iPhone microphones are great for making phone calls, but they struggle to capture musical performances. They simply aren’t designed to do justice to the sound of vocals and guitar.
That’s why Apple officially approved iTrack Pocket. It holds your iPhone at the perfect angle for recording, then captures your performance using a stereo microphone that eclipses the quality of your iPhone mic and a dedicated guitar input with built-in amp simulation.

We just received one Les Paul Classic custom lite, now available online and in georges street.
A new addition to Gibson USA’s 120th Anniversary celebrations, the Les Paul Custom Classic Light pays tribute to the timeless elegance of the Custom, while nailing classic Les Paul tone—all in a light, comfortable guitar that’s superbly easy to play. A thinner mahogany body with traditional 9-hole weight relief secures an ergonomic experience in the hand, while a solid carved maple top assures that legendary maple/mahogany sound. Add a pair of Gibson’s most popular humbucking pickups, coil splitting for single-coil tones, and that sweet Custom trim, and it’s a guitar that covers all bases.
The Les Paul Custom Classic Light begins with a Grade-A mahogany body with a Grade-A maple top finished in high-gloss nitrocellulose in Vintage Sunburst. Seven-ply binding, a multi-ply pickguard, and gold hardware and pickup covers make it a Custom through and through, as do traditional pearloid block inlays on a bound Grade-A rosewood fingerboard. The mahogany neck is carved to a fast, comfortable profile that measures .818” at the 1st fret and .963” at the 12th, while a “120th Anniversary” banner inlay at the 12th fret marks this guitar as something special. A 490R humbucker in the neck made with an Alnico II magnet and a hotter 498T in the bridge made with Alnico V take you from smooth to mean and everywhere in between, while modified wiring offers individual volume controls, a master tone, and mini-toggle switch for coil splitting. A Tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece lock it all down for solid sustain, while a set of Grover™ keystone tuners on the decorative Custom headstock offer smooth, precise tune-ups. Pack it in an Historic Brown Gibson USA hardshell case and you’re ready for the gig!
