    I'm on the list for a tim, but I'm just wondering if the boost on it is clean or not?

    Basically, should I get a separate boost pedal?

    It will add more gain if you're using the Tim at higher gain settings. If you have the Tim set very clean, then it'll act much more like a clean boost. In short, it really acts like a 'more' switch...

    I'm sort of confused. Does the boost not act as a lone boost when the OD is bypassed? I remember reading a discussion about it being like two separate pedals.

    The boost can only be used if the OD is engaged.

    How clean it is, really depends on how you run your amp.

    For example, if it's run hot already, and driving, it will only make it drive more.

    But, if set clean, with clean room to burn still, you could set the drive side as a straight clean boost of sorts. All depends how you roll.
