    Hey I scored a woody last year and have been using it a lot, but not lately, since I acquired loads of other od/sit pedals over the year....

    One thing about the woody is that it sounds so incredibly bright and clanky if used as a conventional od, i.e. clean and woody ontop for distortion...

    I only use the woody alone as a what I call a "tone-manipulator", leave it on all the time and work with the volume knob....before using it, I have to tame the tone control on my strat to get rid of that brightness, sort of artificial clanky sound??if that make sense...[​IMG]

    I use other od's and distortions on my rig , so it got off from my pedalboard cause it's useless with other pedals, but really2 nice as a stand alone on all the time pedal....is this the case with all lovepedal drives?what I notice about lovepedals is that they all have a thin high-end when compared to other pedals???any similar experiences?I've got the twin 60, had the magicboy vibe, tried my friend's COT50, and they all have that brittleness

    it's the most dynamic pedal I've owned and tried!![​IMG] clean and all out distortion at the control of your guitar's volume knob!!!

    Well, since several of his pedals use a type of Treble boost in the circuit (COT for example) his boost pedals do exibit ample high end.

    The Eternity has a treble boost, but you can control it's level in the circuit. So the answer is no, the Eternity can be quite dark if you like. I'm not a "pedal on all the time" kinda guy, so the COT50 really isn't for me. But the Eternity is my favorite pedal... EVER! It's great for switching off/on as a stand alone dirt pedal into a clean amp. The COT IMO needs to be used with a slightly dirty amp.

    Agreed! I use my COT50 with an already overdriven JCM900 & it really kicks. Didn't like it as much with my Son of Boogie set fairly clean. Will get an Eternity down the road to try with the boogie & my Super as well.

    Stacking it in front of another dirt box works too...

    Yep! I had NEVER heard an OD that sounded good to me, stacked with others. Until I got my Eternity. Now it's a whole new world to me.

    All of Sean's pedals work well stacked.

    If you don't have the heart for it, distract him and I'll do the dirty work. Greg has so many, I don't think he'll notice a few choice ones missing for quite awhile ;)

    They're all part of the family.
    I have to thank "Last Nerve" for starting and fueling my Lovepedal obsession.

    Not all of them are "part of the family" any longer ! I hear that a few other family members are wanting to leave the nest :angel

    the cot50 into an eL84-style amp's clean channel (or set for clean, but loud) is da shite!! i just click it off when i'm done using it. but you'll find that the power toobs, if given a healthy signal ;) will compress the cot & bring it into line, both volume & eq-wise, so that it better matches your other peds. really. i just turn it up to 3:00 & then back the git's volume for clean. it's awesome, very 60's plexi! or i set the cot at 10-11:00, & just use it for "jimi-rhythm" clean (semi), ala hey joe. this is why i always wanted 2 cot's in one box! ah well... anyway, i never really liked it as much for stacking, as it was too noisey for that app.
