    It was brought up and discussed quite a bit pre NAMM in the V3 Timmy thread. Paul let the cat out of the bag. :aok

    Right! You turned me on to it, so thanks. I love my Timmy, and can see buying one of these for a mini pedalboard.

    The is very cool. I don't need it but I want it, and that might be all it takes!

    Never had a Timmy. Now might be the time though. What's max gain on it compared to say, a Greer Lightspeed?

    I'll probably buy one. Just for shiggles. I surely don't need it.

    Hopefully some coin lands in Paul C's pocket when you purchase.

    $129.99

    * Edit, that’s the street price.

    Never had a Timmy either. I'm sure I'll grab one...as I'm an overdrivepedalaholic.

    I'm super happy for Paul. A Timmy has been on my board nonstop since 2005, and it's a pedal that everyone should have

    Actually, the stores seem to have MSRP listed at 185.
    The street price seems to be about 129.


    (not trying to be a nit-picker, but it ight make a difference if/when sales go overseas, etc.)

    Paul’s a good dude. I’m happy for him on this as well. I know he’s gotten a lot of push for a mini version and it’s nice to see it become a reality.

    Yes indeed! It's good for Timmy lovers everywhere, but especially good for Paul I think.

    I have no idea what a deal like his with MXR looks like, but if by MXR manufacturing these mini Timmy pedals Paul can now earn some additional income from his design --without the worry of not being able to keep up with demand, or watching others sell clones of his design yet making nothing from it-- then that is awesome.

    This is a real win-win! :aok

    The MXR Sugar Drive was is clean.....

    Better than even the Tummnus in my book as it doesnt have that midrange thing going and is flatter more nuetral transparent etc etc

    That midrange is the whole reason a Klon(e) exists, and the sole reason why the sugar drive sucks ass.
