This would be a pre-order for August's incoming shipment. Shipment arrives from Paul around the end of the month.

The Tim pedal's little brother with all of the tone of its larger sibling, but lacking the send and return jacks as well as the boost channel and boost controls. For those desiring Tim tone in a simpler, more space efficient size.

A pedal of near mythic proportions, the Timmy pedal works in conjunction with your amplifier's natural tone to add anything from a mild boost to a strong overdrive without changing the overall character or architecture of your favorite amp's inherent tone.

A wonderful, natural enhancement to your tone that is extremely organic.

At low settings you will be able to effortlessly achieve a sound that is simply "more" of what your amp already offers. As the gain is turned up, and the pedal's EQ adjusted accordingly, smooth, singing, round and reedy tones are at your fingertips.

The Timmy pedal's responsiveness is exactly like that of a great, tube amplifier in that it responds immediately to your right hand's attack.


9 Volt battery or AC adapter operation

Controls: Gain, Bass, Treble, Volume

Amazing tone and touch sensitivity

Internal dip switches mirror the push/pull pot on the rear of the Tim pedal for selectable modes of more gain or asymmetrical clipping

Timmy Tone!! November 17, 2013
Reviewer: Nevetstexas from Texas  
I recently purchased a Timmy pedal. I play a tele through a F brand Deluxe Reverb Reissue. I also use a TS808 handwire reissue and a 12AX7 driven overdrive. I never got "that sound" that I have been chasing until I put the Timmy in the mix. I put it before the 808 and tube OD to help push them better.  The dynamics of having the Timmy work pre-gain is unique and obviously makes a big difference in the achievable tones. It works very well to help the harmonics of both the amp and pedals. The 808 is MUCH better with the Timmy driving it.  Having the 808 stacked into a real tube also totally changes the game.  The Timmy got me to where I wanted my rig to go!  Amazing pedal!  I run very little gain with it.  Just enough so that when I bear down I get minimal breakup in sound.  But when you stack it into other ODs...  It really shows it's stuff!  Monstrous harmonics!

Love it!

Timmy Overdrive October 31, 2013
Reviewer: Daniel Hinz from Franklin, WI United States  
This pedal absolutely excells in a live setting. I was a bit worried it would get lost in the mix due to its lack of "mid-hump" but something magical happens when you kick it on with a full band. All your notes stand out loud and clear and the string attack is second to none. The only negative thing I could say about this pedal is that it exposes the weaknesses of any other overdrives on your board. I don't know how Paul C. is hiding a cranked EL34 power section in that small enclosure but I don't care. Think "old Mott the Hoople tones" and you'll get an idea of what you're missing if you don't give this one a try.

Timmy Distortion Pedal July 7, 2013
Reviewer: Jim Sliker from Bend, OR United States  
The Timmy delivers giving transparent distortion and overdrive while leaving the guitars tone mostly in tact. However, I am using 4 pedals and when I put the Timmy in the mix I get great AM radio reception. As soon as I take it out of the line up and replace it with my tube screemer, I don't have that problem. I wonder if it could be something to do with the shielding of the electronics inside.

Timmy March 6, 2013
Reviewer: Noah Wexler from Houston, TX United States  
Best overdrive pedal on the market. I have TS808H and a clean boost or two and this thing replaces all of them and blows them all away. Takes a while to get one but totally worth the wait. I highly recommend you get this pedal if you are searching for a pedal with complete range of overdrive tones none of which sound anything less than awesome.
