    I bought my first Timmy V2 a few weeks ago and I love it - So much so that I'm trying to buy a second one for a smaller board. However, I can't seem to find one under $200, even though they sell new for $129. I understand supply and demand, and I don't care what color - so what gives? Is PC making any more? Are they per order or by batch? This is an incredible pedal that in my opinion is worth more then the current price tag, but honestly I'd rather that money go to the builder not some opportunist trying to make a buck.

    PS I know this subject as mentioned before, but I ca n't seem to find the thread - My apologies for rehashing.

    Thanks

    There was a batch of new ones on from a shop on Reverb a couple weeks ago. They will be back. Just set up a FOLLOW THIS SEARCH for new Timmy's and grab one when available. Don't buy a used one for more than 129.

    Paul said there was a hiccup in receiving parts and normal production should resume soon. Meanwhile, if you want to flip your Timmy now is the time to do it. :rolleyes:

    You'll have to pry my Timmy from my cold dead hands.

    I was watching that .gif, and saw him draw back the slide while he already had the trigger cocked and thought "what the hell is he doing???", and then it shot off the gun, and fell down the stairs.....makes sense now. Lol.

    Guitar X has them incoming in about week or so (sparkle blue ones). Paul had just received the housings for them last week.

    News flash. These are not mass produced items. Small batch takes time.

    I’ve never bought sold a Timmy for more than $100. I keep buying it and not liking it, but honestly it’s damn good for a Benny. I’m surprised they’re going for so much.

    That show was one of the all time great comedy writer/actor pairings. House, Schmouse! A Bit of Fry and Laurie for the win :) Also filmed around where I grew up (useless fact alert.)

    Apologies OP and good on you for wanting to support PC.

    I own a Tim and 225 is one heck of a deal for the buyer. I have had mine on my board forever and I expect it to be there after I pass.
