Question about Roland Boss RC-2 Loop Station Stompbox Pedal

1 Answer

My Boss RC-2 Pedal is having a problem with the output. With the volume turned up to max, the signal is suddenly extremely faint on can only be heard if there is silence in the room. Even the backing track drums are nearly inaudible. I've tried many different output wires and amps but still only a faint sound. The lights work, and the pedal still records fine, just it is useless to use for output.

Most PROBABLE is the output jack either has been broken (common due to mishandling and accidents with cables such as stepping on the plug while plugged into the pedal) or the soldering of the jack in the pedal has broken loose. Less common is a circuit board crack in the vicinity of the jack. Open pedal and inspect for the above suggestions.

I would suggest cleaning the input jack, and if that doesn't fix it, replacing the jack.

Which is the master volume to boss me 25 ?


Hi, I can help you with your question. On the face of the effects, towards the right side, there are three settings that can be adjusted: DRIVE, TONE and VOLUME. The VOLUME knob is your master volume. The expression pedal can adjust volume, but it's output volume is controlled by the master VOLUME knob we just identified. I hope this has helped you, and if it has, could you please click on the "helpful" button ? Thank you!

My RC-50 suddenly won't power on.


Has the unit ever had another ac adapter plugged into it?

Volume knob is broen


The obvious answer is to have it repaired. Sometimes the parts can be hard to find but either DigiKey.com would have the part or you can go to Roland/Boss and order the part. If the knob itself was smashed, the pot also is likely damaged. $5 of parts should fix it up. If you are adept at electronic repair it should be an easy fix.

The Auto on my Boss RC2 sometimes doesn't seem to pick up a signal and engage. It is plugged into a multi- socket adapter and I do not have the amp turned up too loud as the room is tiny. I thought it was...


Sometimes, with BOSS pedals, the battery must be disconnected before using another power source. I ran into the same problem with my DS-1 distortion. If it's not that, then check the power rating of the power adapter. It should read, for the output, exactly 9V DC. If it doesn't, then you have to get a power adapter that has that same rating. Boss pedals will not use anything other than 9V DC (I know, I've tried).

Hope that helps!

I actually use boss ml 2.. it works just fine for the past few month. but all of a sudden now. its just wont work. i even change the batteries. what happen was. while i was playing. it suddenly shuts off...


The first thing I would do would try a 9V AC Adapter to rule out a battery issue completely. But if you have changed the battery already, this shouldn't be the issue. Does the red light come on at all? The next thing I would check involves removing the back cover of the pedal and making sure the input/output jacks are okay. Do you see any hanging wires, loose solder, or smell a burnt smell? If you have only had this pedal for a few months, you may be able to send it back to BOSS for replacement under your warranty.

The probable problem is poor connections at the input and/or audio output jacks.

Usually the power supply will fail either on or off which is sometimes cause by a bad input power jack.

In any case, the problem is likely internal and will require repair.

It is possible the pedal is DESIGNED to be used with an amplified (preamp within guitar) and yours MAY be a passive guitar. You did not tell us what guitar you have.
Many of the processors for guitars depend on having a "line level" signal and that requires that your guitar has a built in preamp.
If your guitar doesn't have a preamp in it, buy a preamp to put ahead of this pedal.

How to set up with amp and distortion pedal


With everything switched off. I will surmise that you are using the onboard battery with the foot pedal and not a power supply.
1. Plug lead from guitar/instrument into INPUT side of pedal
2. Plug lead from OUTPUT side of pedal into amplifier INPUT.
3. Turn amplifier volume to about 10 o'clock - to stop blowing your ears out.
4. Turn volume up on guitar to acceptable level.
5. press foot switch on pedal and adjust pedal controls to suit your type of distortion.
6. Play like Hendrix.
Good Luck
ps Just as an after thought rechargeable 9volt batteries are the way to go. I've been using them for years as I always get caught up in the power cable.
If you're going to add another pedal like a Phaser, Compressor, Flanger or what just use small connect leads between each pedal but always, always put the compressor pedal last in the line.
