Not sure I understand the explanation on the instruction sheet. What do these do?
They select options for the clipping diodes. You don't really need to know what diodes too, but just play around with the different positions and such and see which one suits your tonal needs.
This manual might go some way to explaining it. Tim/Timmy manual.
Thats great. Thanks!!!
I don't think the TIM has these switches, only the Timmy. I think the Tim is controlled by the pot on the side of the pedal.
That's right...only DIP switches in the Timmy not in the "stock" TIM. The stock TIM has a single pull-pot rather than two DIP switches.
There have been a bunch of TIMs built with mini toggles that give you the same clipping options as the Timmy though.
This one was the first. I loved the asymmetrical mode so much with my Timmys I had Paul build those clipping options into a TIM. It's become quite a popular variation now.
Wait, the Timmy has the clipping selectors? Awesome! I can't wait for this pedal!
You'll love it!
I should be hearing any day now!
i've been using a tim for a little while now. i got it straight from paul with the clipping switches on the face. this pedal sounds incredible. i've owned tims/timmys in the past ... but i swear this one is magical.
can the tonal variation of each position be described?
how does it affect the sound?
Worth the wait bro! its an awesome piece of gear to have.
