    the only way to reach paul is by phone, at night, between 7-9 PM (central). it is his home number and he is very busy making pedals, taking other peoples calls, and has a wife and a baby, so just be courteous of that. Don't try to call during the day. he has a day job.
    contact me if you want his number.

    Happy Timmy user here. Had one on my main board since late last year - this little guy works so well w/everything I've thrown at it that I decided I needed a second one for my electro-acoustic rig.. plus there's those little dip switches inside.. did some recording to compare settings, but I'll be better off having a couple under my toes - so much of the difference is in the 'feel'.. I need two to A/B simultaneosly.

    After using Timmy for a week or so, I decided that I should have ordered a Tim, too. That switchable loop might take some real nice tone-shapers (EQs & boosters, or some swirlies like vibe, or even delay - so I've got one on the way as well.

    Paul is hard to reach, and his stuff's in high demand, so I'd order both when you get thru'. He'll get back to you when the work's done. And it really is worth every minute of the wait:dude

    Im guessin the TIM has more gain in generally and that its more of an OD as compared to the Timmy which is more of a Boost?:JAM

    Sid, you're on the same Time Zone as me.

    9.00am your time is 7pm Paul's time.

    Easy!

    Tim's gain maxed in the 1st stage is like Timmy at 3 o'clock, but then the Tim has the boost- giving it more overall gain. They have a different sound character because of the different value gain pots in them- slightly different, but still different. I'd go for the Tim :)

    You'd definitely get classic rock tones on the Tim, and they both stack very well with other pedals, I don't think one stacks better than the other. And it should sound especially good with a Dyna Red since BJF pedals tend to stack very well with others too. Good luck waiting for that Tim ;)

    any news as to the current wait time for a Tim/Timmy? been waiting 4 months for a zendrive and don't want to do that again... (I think I ordered a timmy through a PM months ago though I realize that probably never made it to paul...

    Slowburn, you've got to call Paul up on the telephone and place the order personally. If you do a little digging around here, you'll find a recent thread containing info about a problem w/the TIM enclosures that was finally resolved. Should speed things up, but you're still looking at a long wait.

    I've ordered quite a few *boutique* pedals this year, and the Cochrane Experience is truly unique. The guy's a wealth of information and is always a blast to talk to. Both pedals are great (I own 2 Timmys & a TIM) and so ridiculously underpriced you might as well order both - in fact, as of last week, the Timmy's been upgraded (2 extra clipping diodes) and I'm presently toying w/the notion of sending one back to TN for the mod, or just getting another one..

    For anyone that knows the current practice...
    1. What are the current prices from Paul, and what is shipping?
    2. Does he charge up front, or not till your pedal is ready to ship?
    3. What forms of payment does he take?

    I know I could ask him this by phone first, but so could hundreds of us and we could save his time if it is here.
