Just talked to Paul C. last night--my Tim is on the way (can't stress enough what a pleasure it is doing business with Mr. Cochrane, the guy is just so nice, considerate, and easygoing)

Anyway, are any of you guys running your Tims at 18v? Is it safe to do so?

In the past, I've really liked what doubling the voltage did for my Fulldrive 2 and Fish Factory, nice boost in headroom on both pedals.

hmm, i didn't think you could run the fish factory at 18v. this is all second-hand, but i thought only his amp modeling pedals could take 18. i never tried it because of that, but if it definitely works, that'd be interesting to try.

as for the tim, yes it is safe to run at 18 volts. as with most pedals, it ups the headroom.

Thanks, Senor Zooom.

BTW, I e-mailed Brian Mena about running the Factory at 18v, and he replied that it was okay to do so.

What about running the Timmy pedal at 18v?

has anyone run the TIM at 18volts yet? and if so, did you prefer the sound?

I did for several months and loved it...now have a one spot for efficiency and run it at 9v.

Difference...18v is a little clearer, less gain and even less compression. I think I like the 9v better since it has a little more sag and bloom to it vs. 18v

Either way you'll dig it mucho!
