I just saw the previous version was discontinued on Humbucker, to be replaced with this...

Thoughts?

Description:

The Paul Cochrane Timmy 15th Anniversary Pedal brings about a few changes to the venerable Timmy. But don't worry! At it's heart it's essentially the same pedal, but with some considerable tweaks.

1) The external switch is now a gain boost, offering far more gain range than any previous version of Paul's pedals.

2) The amount of overdrive from the Gain pot has actually been reduced so that it works much better with BOTH positions of the Gain Boost switch. It's now easier to dial in precisely where you want the breakup level to be.

3) Non-reversed Bass & Treble pots. The non-reversed pots addresses those that wished for a more intuitive and conventional knob function. No more turning the bass and treble knobs up to reduce the frequencies.

4) The 1458 opamp is back! How is it different than the standard 4559? Paul feels it's a tiny (and he does mean TINY) bit less harsh on the top end and a bit less saturated. Still, you have to "squint your ears" to hear it, as Paul says.

5) The symetrical/asymetrical clipping switch has been moved to an internal dip switch, which is the previous top and middle position of the switch.

The Timmy pedal has always been known for it's ability to provide a transparent overdrive to your amplifier while retaining the amps original tone. It's a fairly common thing for an overdrive to color tone, so why invest in a $1500 plus amp only to change it's inherent sound, right?

At low settings you will be able to effortlessly achieve a sound that is simply "more" of what your amp already offers. As the gain is turned up, and the pedal's EQ adjusted accordingly, smooth, singing, round and reedy tones are at your fingertips.

The Timmy pedal's responsiveness is exactly like that of a great, tube amplifier in that it responds immediately to your right hand's attack.

The Paul Cochrane Timmy is absolutely a legend in the world of overdrive pedals, and has been copied to a large degree over the years by several knock offs, such as the Lovepedal Amp Eleven, Lovepedal OD Eleven, Vemuram Jan Ray, and countless others. Why buy a knockoff when the real thing is only $149?

FEATURES

* 9 Volt battery or AC adapter operation
* Controls: Gain, Bass, Treble, Volume
* Amazing tone and touch sensitivity

I may come off as a broken record lately... but I recently got a Mythical OD(Klon) and then a Timmy. The hype is no joke at all. They are amazing and unique circuits.

Paul is cool as heck so please support him and buy a new pedal. ($150!!!???) This would be a great one to get!

So does this mean the are actual eq changes with this version? Are there more mids as you turn the gain up or flip the switch?

I wonder how it will be instantly identifiable as different from the v2.

I wonder why there’s this but still no Tim 2016.

I just ordered yesterday I guess one of the last batches of the V2 green version from Humbucker. Never tried a Timmy so looking forward to it. I guess ill have to give the V3 a try too!
