    hope I like it. Not too worried though since I can resell it quickly for the same price. My biggest concern is that I wonder if it will outshine my Barber LTD. enough for me to keep it. I love my LTD. but would still like it to be a tad bit less compressed and a bit more lively and amp-like. I'm hoping the Timmy will deliver.

    Have a hard time believeing you will be dissapointed. Had both the LTD and the Tim. Both great pedals, but the Tim/Timmy has a 'sparkle' to it which is faboulus....

    Thanks alot guys, I hope it works out too. I love my ltd. to death so its no big deal if it doesn't. And I'm a strat/tele guy so that helps.

    dont judge til you try it in a band setting...that's when the Paul C. pedals shine.

    I just got my Timmy today and I seriously love it! Ive tried almost every overdrive pedal that gets loads of hype (cept' the Klon) and this one really lives up to it the most! It sounds great with every guitar I own... Les Paul w/humbuckers, Strat w/singles and Elite Casino w/p90's. I think it sounds best with the p90's so far...it really makes em' scream and shine!

    turn that treble knob back...then she gets warmer and less grainy. when playing loud as hell, drop the bass back too, and its -PERFECT

    The Tim rules.
