I had a KTR before I had a Timmy, I still have a Timmy, YMMV. I would actually be interested in your opinion after trying both. I preferred the Timmy mainly for the way it stacks. It just makes every other Fuzz or OD sound better.
I’ve never played a Timmy; is it analogous to any other pedals?
I am not getting this. I just listened to it, and found it horrible! Is that how a Timmy is supposed to sound? I am not being facetious.
I dunno .
Suppose we all hear things differently.
I guess. I will try it when it comes out.
That video sounded horrible; is that really how they’re supposed to sound? It’s almost a fuzz pedal. I guess I’ll try it when it’s out. Maybe it’s just how he dialed it in.
My thoughts exactly
Andy Martin's video is comparing the MXR version of the device with a non-MXR original (not sure which iteration). Are you saying both sound horrible to you?
If you don't like the sound of the Timmy, why are you interested in the MXR version?
Andy is super cool but I personally think this was not a good demo of the pedal.
I’ve used the timmy for a long time and the tone in the video sounded a little too fuzzy to me. It must be either his amp or something. It didn’t sound nice in my personal opinion.
Yeah, didn't sound good. Not sure what the reason is as I don't run the gain that high on the Timmy, nor do I use Fender amps
Also in the direct comparison of the clean boost capabilities (no EQ'ing, I think that was the second example) I thought the original sounded better.
Heard the demo. Wouldn't buy the pedal based on this.
That being said, I have a Timmy so I know how it sounds and kind of get how the MXR might compare. And I think it might be good, nice small form factor and all. Cool!
"Listen with your ears, and not your eyes."
Dang, that sort of thinking would shut down half the threads in this forum ha ha.
In the demo, I hear a loud clean sound with a weird broken fuzz sound in parallel. I for one want to try the MXR to see if that's on purpose.
I thought my computer audio system was having problems. And yes, both of them sounded weird. It cannot be right, which is why I want to try the MXR.
They both sounded terrible. Why am I interested? Because the pedal has a lot of hype. I’ve never played a Timmy at all, but was interested in what all the fuss was about.
I agree, the video had me wondering, is that how it sounds? I have a Helix, and it has a modeled "Timmy". On a clean amp, I don't get that "fuzz" sound. Not sure why this video sounds so bad, IMHO. I still might get the MXR Timmy for personal reasons
I think it might have been to do with running the tone controls almost wide open. When I do that on my v1 through a deluxe reverb i get that kind of full range fizzier sound, I generally prefer the treble rolled off a bit.
I’m on the other side of the fence, I thought it sounded good. I actually went and cranked the Gain on my Timmy and tried out some of his settings. I thought it sounded good, going into a clean Fender Princeton. However, I did notice a difference between the MXR version and the Timmy v2. Enough that I would likely never try the MXR unless my Timmy disappeared and I couldn’t buy another.
To be fair, there's so many ways to use a Timmy, it's hard to make a "typical" Timmy demo.
