I´ve just received a voodoo-1, and I´m not having any problems at all getting good tones out of it, but still it would be nice to know which setting Mike is using Very Happy

Put the "volume" all the way up on the pedal,
"gain" around 11:00,
"tone" around 1:00
Now use the volume control on your guitar to get a clean tone.

Thanks!

The taper of pots may vary, but I get a little to much unfocused low end on the nech PU (Strat) with the tone on 1 o´clock... (The bridge PU sounds fine though also with the "Fatness" on about 2 o´clock, but the best sound from the neck PU is with "fatness" at about 11-11.30 o´clock).

This seems to be the difficult thing with this pedal: Getting an "EQ" that doesn´t get muddy on the neck PU or becomes to thin on the bridge PU.

I´ll give this a try for a while though. (Might lower the bass on the amp a bit!)

Was these settings the same that he used when it was:
Voodoo-1 -> TS-9 ?

yes, but he no longer uses the voodoo1, he now uses the lovepedal cot.

Nah, I think he went back to Voodoo-1 .. I do have a COT50 Gold and I can't get any useable sounds out using the SD-9 and COT50 together..

On the 2009 James Taylor Tour he definitely used the SD9 and the COT50 as you can see in this Interview:

I have seen that, but that just seems like a horrible combo for me, COT50 is way to trebly, the SD-9 is great but both get very harsh..

Well... I guess it really depends on the guitar and Amp you use. I played a '63 Strat a week ago (still amped up on it!) and it was very warm and growling even on the bridge PU, no harshness at all. Add a worn in blackface ProReverb and you might find yourself actually looking for a pedal like the COT50 to add some topend and definition... and since he plays almost clean tones in that band most of the time I reckon he doesn't turn the COT 50 up very much. What I don't get is that he's using the Line6DL4... thats such a tone destroyer to me... well it's all in his hands anyway, you could give him a Ukulele and a broken radio and he could make it scream Smile

cheers

The Cot50 sounds good when you have an amp pushing some air. It's a pedal meant for live use.
