    Just got a twin 60 today, plugged it in......WOWWWW I've never had any boost pedal before, but this thing is really awsome, dont know if its transparent, it just grits if that makes sense...:)
    I prefer the first channel for clean and second channel when used with od/dist pedals definitely a keeper....my best pedal purchase up-to-date....

    Yeah, Twin 60 is awesome. I leave the first channel on all the time, second for boost.

    what does this pedal exactly ?

    is it a (double) OD, a (double) boost ?

    why this name "twin 60" ?

    its a boost pedal with two channel.....it's actually one circuit, so you have to on the first channel in order to get to the second, like fulldrives....it's not completely clean on my amp, or maybe cause the low wattage (30 watts).....its a really great pedal

    I also recently received a Twin 60 just in time for recording
    a demo session and have been thrilled by its sounds.
    Side one is a MOSFET type clean boost that is chunky with a
    very mild breakup at max settings (I never get that far though)
    and side two is the COT50, which is the fattest non master Marshall
    power amp breakup sound I've ever heard through a pedal in my
    35 years of playing. I had originally hesitated about getting the COT50
    by itself due to no LED or 9v adapter but when I saw the Twin 60 on
    ebay for only $50 more with the other channel, LED, and adapter I
    made the buy and am VERY glad I did.
    Great pedal, plus Sean quickly answer a couple of questions I had about
    the pedal. (I also have the Magicboy Vibe which is also very sweet)

    It is? I didn't know that. I thought it was just two boosts, one on top of the other.

    I dont think the second is the cot50....i opened up the pedal and there's only like a thumb size of PCB covered with epoxy....and cot50 cost more than twin 60....

    Sean recently made a custom twin60 with the Cot50 on one side, which it looks like screamingduck purchased.

    The Twin 60 I bought was advertised on ebay as a MOSFET boost/COT50
    combo and that is definitely the case here. You can run either side by
    itself or together. I have only just received the pedal and it was quickly put
    on my pedalboard for some sessions in progress. Like most gearpagers,
    I probably have way too much stuff but generally only use one or two pedals
    at a time. The Twin 60 is so easy to dial in (one knob each) and it sounds
    so HUGE. I ended up using it for several tunes. I know I'm in my honeymoon
    stage but even the engineer was blown away by the thickness of the pedal.
    Apparently most Twin 60's are two boost combo 's because when I emailed
    Sean about the pedal, he said he had only made one other like it this year.

    Thanks to everyone for this informative forum!

    Damn I just fooled around with the twin 60--- After exam :)....man I plugged a Keeley RAT in front of it with the RAT setting....damnnnnn I was in high gain heaven!!!I could swear that Joe Satriani was there!!!hehehe.....however, for fast rhythm that sound I got was quite lame...just back up the guitar volume a bit and I was in crunch heaven....and I turned the twin 60 off....what happened?CRAP...turn twin 60 back on WOW!!!turn off CRAP! turn the second channel on WOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW...I think the second channel is meant for od/distortion boost!!!it's really a great little blue fetish pedal! I'm a happy man...:dude

    The Twin 60 is "NOT"..."NOT"... a COT 50 and a Boost in one box!!!

    Sean did make one like that, but that is not the normal Twin 60!

    The Twin 60 is NOT a 2 channel boost.... and by that I mean you can only use one side at a time...they do NOT cascade!

    The Twin 60 has a single circuit with two gain pots. Only one side is on at any time!

    The two channels do sound different from each other. It's not huge but you can hear and feel it.

    You can set it for "Unity Gain" and no difference in tone.

    No 60db of boost.... that would be a record!

    The 50 into the 60 is stunning.

    My two go to pedals....I don't gig without them...period!


    Peace out...

    I did "NOT" know that. I put the left side higher though so it all makes sense now.

    Need some advice from Twin60 users here, I'm actually using a GT2 for my hi gain tones. Contemplating to get either a RC Booster or Twin 60.

    Looking at the description from users in this thread, i'm more interested in the Twin 60. Is it possible to set the switch on the right to make my rhythm sound fuller...while setting the other knob for a lead tone when i kick in the so-called left switch that you guys mentioned?

    I've tried the RC Booster and it definitely made my GT2 more "alive", if that makes sense.....sounds more responsive and amp-like. I assume the Twin 60 could set 1 channel to what i get on the RC...while the other switch for leads and stuffs?
