I basically use the Tim as an always on pedal to give my clean tones just a bit of a boost. The tone I am after lies someplace in between Boost and Edge of Breakup.In my experience, with Fender amps you should not ask the Tim to do a lot. I could not hear a big difference between the stock chip and the LM1458. It sounds great with the gain set between 10:00-12:00 and EQ set at similar levels. Anything above that and it sounds a bit grainy - which could be what some players are after. It's my always on pedal with my BF Princeton Reverb that let's me set up a "clean with attitude" tone at any volume. It's the best pedal I've ever played to do this.
