    I want a pedal in the front of my pedal chain, like the superhard on but I want some eq control but like the fact the superhard on has very high input impendance seems to be what I need in a buffer but would prefer the control of the timmy so does the timmy have a high input impendance as well? thanks

    I was doing a search & found this lil' ignored thread, and since I was curious about this too I thought I'd give it a *BOOST*

    For several days I've been trying to find Dunlop wah in & out impedances. These are very arcane subjects!

    the best person to ask about the tim/timmy is Paul C who is a memeber, try pm him or ringing him.
    As for the wah if you can get a manual or info sheet from dunlop, it should say there. if its a crybaby standard then i think i have it, but il'' check it and post it later.

    Hey, if anyone learns impedance info on Tim/Timmy, please share!

    I will venture a guess, based on what PaulC has mentioned about the TIM in the past - the input Z is high enough so that it won't load down your pickups, but it is not as high as the SHO. Really, you don't want it too high because sometimes that will introduce extra noise.

    Anyway, the TIM will be just fine if you want something that will (a) not load down your pickups, and (b) drive long cables.

    Also forgot to mention, there's a little tool in one of the Craig Anderton books that can be used to roughly measure input Z. I think it's in "DIY Projects for Guitarists". I'll see if I can dig it up.

    Thanks for the tip, I was hoping Paul would give us a heads-up, perhaps he's on vacation :)

    It isn't something he doesn't care about, Paul simply doesn't have the time to respond to all the emails and pm's he gets. I've seen him post that he has a little headset on while he solders just so he can tell people where they are on the list and take orders. If you still need it, I'm sure somebody has the PDF file they could send you- I'd send it but my computer recently failed and so I don't have it anymore.

    This is so rude and out of line. I have stated many times that the way I do this is by phone only. Emails and PM's don't work for me. This is my choosen way of dealing with this, and I have been very clear on this many times.

    I'm sorry that I don't do this the way you'd like me to. But don't take shots at me because you want to do this your way. I'm doing the best I can with the time I have, and using the phone is the only way that works for me right now. I did not ignore you - you choose to contact me in ways I've told people not to, and I didn't see it. It's that simple. To say this is something I don't care about is way out of line.

    I do biz from 7pm-10pm central time by phone. Not 3am like somebody tried to call me last night...

    Regards, PaulC

    Update - I did an email and pm search for Coreybox and I found nothing. I also went under your email address and found nothing. I don't know who you are. This is why I choose to use the phone...

    You know what, you have a question, then call the man!! Don't take shots and pop your mouth off of a public forum. Paul C. loves what he does and cares, but does not have time to respond to every email and PM that people send. But he loves what he does, and he makes the best, and I mean best overdrive ever!! And I love these pedals more than anything. My hats off to Paul C. for making the best overdrive ever!

    Before I call, I have heard that between 7:00 - 9:00 pm
    is the time to call, but what time zone is this?
    I could probably find out by doing a little research, but I thought I would ask first.
    Thanks
