    We're still talking about doing it, but things have changed for both of us since we talked about it back in the fall.

    I started doing pedals full time the first of the year. I changed my role at Heritage Amps to "consultant/designer" instead of builder because the pedal thing was getting to the point where it was demanding more of my time than I could give it. It was getting away from me, so I decided I needed to give it more attention so I could do it more "pro". The guys at heritage can build the amps without me, so I'm going to focus on getting the pedals out, and getting new things designed and out this year.

    Dave has had a ton of work with his new designs, and some really good success with his new fuzz, so we kind of changed positions from the fall. I've got more time now, and he has less!! It's a good problem for both of us! I still want to try and do it because it's a blast working with like minded people and Dave builds great stuff.

    We'll see how things turn out these next few months.

    Later, PaulC
    Tim & timmy pedals

    Paul....cool.....I hope that works out for you. I'm sure it will!

    Just curious.......what is (roughly) your current turn-around time for Timmys?

    Cheers!

    Now this collaboration sounds like a pedal I'd buy...I love Barber's build quality and tone (not to mention pricing) and I've heard nothing but praise about the Tim/Timmy line (never tried one)...

    Good to hear both pedal dudes are very busy.

    What a cool idea. Almost as cool as two amp designers--say Bogner and Line 6--collaborating on an amp.

    Just kidding.
