    Has anybody A/B-ed both pedals? I have a Cot50 but real estate on the board is at a premium so I'd like to get an Amp50 instead but want to be sure both sound the same.

    I'd say it's like 95% the same, especially when gigging. I've been thru 5 different COT versions, and tho the Amp50 was my "least favorite" version, it was a fairly minor overall difference. Also, every time i've picked up a 2nd COT, i still had the 1st one i bought to be the sort of "standard" that the others would compare to. If i had sold of that 1st one, i'm sure i'd be less picky with any others....but i'm never going to do that :aok

    cheers

    The Amp50 has a higher range than the COTs I had. It starts out with considerably less gain and ends at about the same amount of drive. Also the volume jump is much lower when running into a clean amp. Other than that, they were voiced the same.
