    I picked up a used COT 50 today only because I got a good deal on a trade. It is sunburst and has no AC tap. I have no idea how many different versions of this pedal were made, so any help is appreciated.

    I'll say this up front: It is very possible that I will turn this pedal over sometime soon because I really don't have a NEED for it, especially in my basement:JAM

    So if this thread is considered bad taste, just nuke it and maybe somebody could contact me privately and walk me through the various models

    Thanks

    I had a sunburst with an ac tap and led and thought it was OK. Then I picked up a cot50 with the lovepedal japanese logo on it cause I heard sean prefers these. It sounds better to my ears(enough so that i still have it). Not so harsh with the gain maxed, and sweeter with it rolled back.

    I'm confused, I have a sunburst Cot50 with the Chinese love character (no AC tap) and I can't tell if it's the same as yours or the original poster's or soemthing else?

    My cot50 with the red led, chinese logo, and ac tap sounds better to me than the sunburst finish with ac tap and red led.

    Hmm, the sunburst sounds pretty damn good to me, and mine has an AC to boot.
    As I remember hearing (correct me if I'm wrong):
    cot50 sunburst is the original. A little brighter sounding, maybe a tad more gain? (might have to be corrected).

    Zen logo I'm not too sure about, but never heard sean say anything about it being his favorite (I know he does sometimes gives pedals that he deems exceptional names and/or sometimes custom paint jobs).

    unmarked box (limited time $150) was a tad darker and and a little warmer than the sunburst- probably a little better for bright amps

    current box with red light is pretty much like the unmarked box in terms of tone

    cot50 blue is a tad less gain, a little smoother, supposedly better humbuckers.

    Hopefully sean or someone who knows better will chime in and correct me.

    Sweet - I guess that means I have a particularly good original?

    So mitch, is the twin 60 a cot50 and a deluxe 60? Or is it a clean boost? Are the channels cascadeable, are there 2 channels or is it one channel? Is it transparent? :confused::confused: :horse :D
