    How come he doesn't sell it through any online stores, I did see it on musictoyz but it's out of stock. What's the best way to order one?

    Yes, contacting him directly is really the only way. It's rare to see any stores stocking them; they're just made in such limited quantities. If you want to avoid direct contact and the wait, then the only alternative is to pony-up quite a premium whenever they show up for sale second-hand (i.e. Emporium and eBay).

    I've not tried him yet, but my understanding is go to his myspace homepage and get him from there. Phone's best for him, avoid PM's and basic email. Soon enough the Timmy contingent will chime-in here with more informed posts for you than I have, I'm sure. Good luck.

    Thank you sir!
    Just ordered one. I am probably going to get murdered by the wife but I don't care they are impossible to get so I dove in.
    Of course she just ordered two coach bags, and is getting her whole left side tattooed so...

    Holy smokes! Sounds like at least $1K worth of bags and tattoos to your $120 pedal...I think you need set your sights on at least a Klon or something. :p

    Kidding aside, you'll love the Timmy. One of my favorite pedals.

    Her whole left side tatooed, and she's gonna murder you for getting a $129 pedal?!!! Sounds familiar. My wife spent $30K on a kitchen remodel and got on my case for spending $600 on a guitar, which paid for itself with all the gigs I do. Ha! Go figure!

    Totally incorrect information.

    Ides, I'll PM you a couple of stores that likely have new ones in stock right now that you can buy.

    When she's done. She probably has 3 sittings of coloring to get done. Sunday is the first color session.

    incorrect! you will even get one faster if you contact one or more of his dealers and get on THEIR lists.
    they were great for me. harbor music is another great source. he has a list on his myspace page. call them and i bet you'll have one in your hands inside a month or so. . . .

    Well funny thing. She has been saying "I don't know why you ask to buy something, you know I am going to give you ****, just buy it. I don't ask you when I am going to buy something" Ok, so I need a noise reducer, which in turn is the same price as the Timmy pedal. But dude, you can't get the Timmy pedal anywhere except once in a blue moon bro, haaaaaad to pull the trigger. So we shall see if the "just buy it" thing works or not. She can buy herself anything but me on the other hand, "what do you need another pedal for, don't you have them all!"

    I used to use Humbucker music, but now they're charging $18 dollars to ship, sorry, but that's a little ridiculous.

    Agreed, and thats where I just ordered from too. But that is only for the Timmy. I wouldn't do that with anything else.

    I'm right here

    I agree i was going to order one and called them on it and they say that's what they ad for that pedal. Any pedal can be shipped flat rate priority mail anywhere in the CONUS for $9 . I couldn't justify the double shipping price and i passed on it. Seems so wrong
