can a treble booster (e.g. beano, java, etc.) and a cot50 share a pedalboard...?

    Present!

    Tough to say - I have a CoT50 Red and now a Crispy Cream (thanks to utterhack!) and they sound pretty different to me. But I use them in an identical fashion - basically as lead boosts stacked into other pedals or low gain ODs on their own. The CoT50 is more full range and brighter at lower gain settings and gets into light fuzz at max, the CC is honkier in the mids and just gets more focused as you crank it up.

    I guess it all depends on what you're after - if you want old school Marshall grit, CoT50. Brian May/Mick Ronson creamy honk - treble booster.

    +1 - well said!!

    I have a beano boost, a diff't rangemaster clone and a COT50 on my board and can get pretty different sounds out of each of them.

    I think they are very different. The COT is more open/Marshally and the Beano Boost and Dyna Ranger are more focused in the mids and have a lot thickness.
