just made this video today since a lot of people have been comparing these pedals. I though this could help some of you hear the differences and make a good decision on the pedal you like! Let me know if you have any questions or comments!

Sounds good bro! Good job Your Love Never Fails.

I agree there are similarities, but they are different enough for me to like them both. I'm keeping the BAOD.

I am not familiar with the Bad Ass, but the Timmy and TS are quite different. I will give the video a listen when a get a chance though - thanks for sharing!

Thanks man, they are all great pedals!

I think when you watch the video, it might make a little more sense why those would be compared then!

The MXR sounds great and at a mere $99.00 it's great value. Thanks for posting the comparison and I actually thought the Modified OD sounded better than my friend's HW808.

This video not only got me excited for my Timmy (hopefully getting my phone call in a few weeks), but I have been looking for a replacement OD and the CBMOD may just fill that spot. What is your favorite setting for the MXR, low/med gain or higher?

Also, I've had a friend say the MXR seemed "thin" when he tried it out. Anyone experience this, or is the OD pretty thick/full?

For the MXR, i like it medium to medium high gain. It sounds good pretty much anywhere, but thats where it will be on my board. As far as sounding thin, i just dont see that. It isnt thin to me by nature, and when you add in the 100Hz knob, its anything but thin to me. I really like how it sounds on the last part of the video, nice and cutting, enough low end, not a ton, but it will work well in a band mix.

So the MXR has a fair bit of gain then?
Yeah, it has enough gain for me for sure. It might not get into metal or anything (actually, I know it wont) but for harder rock and stuff i think it would be good!

That's exactly what I was hoping for. Thank you! I think this will go nicely with my future Timmy and my Green Rhino.

Some have said the BUMP button is pretty meaningless because its just like turning up the 100kHz knob a notch.

What do you feel about that?
I can see how some would think that, but to me it does add some mids to the tone, so i dont see it as being the exact same. The manual says the bump raises the low end and the mids, which is pretty much what i hear!

You may have seen me say that on the other thread. After having spent some more time with the pedal I'm going to back away from that some. The 100Hz knob can get you close to what the bump switch does, but it's not exactly the same. The bump switch does sweep a little higher into the mids. The difference is subtle but it's there.

The point I really want to make about the bump switch is that it doesn't revoice the pedal to the extent that it gives you a TS sound and an uncolored sound, which is what I was hoping for. It sounds like a TS either way -- just a thicker TS with the switch in. IMO the way to think about this pedal is as a very tweakable TS.

Great, thanks for your input!
