It's a cool pedal. I can see why it's so hyped. I bought it used...and glad I did. I think I might be a bit underwhelmed had I had to wait 10+ months for it. I was surprised how transparent it really is. The videos on You Tube can be deceiving at times.

Anyway....this is all crap that's been said already. If you're on the fence, and can pick it up used at a good price, do it.

In case anyone is wondering like I was, it pairs up great with the OCD, the DD, LTD and I had a lot of fun boosting my Trifecta fuzz with it.

Oh....and thanks again Mark @ RMC. I love buying stuff from that guy.

I waited about seven months for mine and yes I did not immediately get knocked out by it due to the incredible hype surrounding this little guy.
After almost selling it, luckily I took it to rehearsal and played it through my live rig and it really added alot of clarity and zip to my tone. Its a keeper for sure. Be sure to open it up and play with the DIP switches.
I ended up with one switch up and one down.

Yeah...I think this one is a keeper. I'll give the DIP switches a whirl.

I received mine today in the mail also bought used in mint condition.
Im somewhat of an OD whore and this fits in real well.
It does stack very nice with the OCD and my amps gain .

How do you guys like connecting it,, before other OD's or last/behind other OD's????

Mine is last so that I can either use it as a clean boost or a low gain OD. The beauty of this pedal is in its transparency... I can place my higher gain pedals before it, set them for the sound I want from them, and layer the two and the Timmy doesn't change the basic sound of the previous OD's (though it can if I need it to). Most people go low to high gain with their OD's but the Timmy's transparency makes it work at the end of the OD chain but still as the low gain OD.

The Timmy will work just about anywhere in the chain-super versatile with that awesome EQ, DIP switch arrangement etc.

Add the ability to swap opamps and you're talking a real Swiss Army knife!

i like how you can turn the gain right down to 0 and turn the volume way up and have a natural booster (with two band EQ). Then you can have a great what i like to call country rock (push the amp a lil) and then a full out great overdrive sound. also it works best for me some where inbetween lots of gain and a small amount and used with something with a mid hump. thats all be said before i know but still i like it, worth the wait!

thanks to Paul C

Now you need a TIM!!!

It was the only way I could get an OCD to sound any good at all as well.

Now the SPF Green Line on the other hand (which to me is what an OCD is a copy of, is a much nicer pedal)

Timmy is a great little pedal. Probably the most misunderstood pedal mentioned on these forums. $105 is the ultimate bargain, irrespective of wait time.

Thanks! :AOK

It is definitely my favourite pedal... even more so since I recently found out that the Tim and Timmy get their names from Monty Python and the Holy Grail!!!

KOT and Tim are very different, and they sound amazing together. The KOT is more of a ts style, but incredibly dynamic, not as much of a mid hump, less compressed. Tim is "transparent" as I assume the definition would be. The EQ on the Tim is really good, and seems to make everything sound better.
