    Paul is definitely a good guy, and a talented builder.

    I definitely favor the tim and or timmy over the cot50 that we recently A/B'd..... but that is me, my opinion, my 2 cents, it was shared be other pros here.

    i have the tim and love it and my name is tim so everyone thinks that is neat. wouldnt having a tim and timmy be overkill? i also have a big box gainster that rules with my tweed super amp. tried to put a direct drive in the mix but it didnt make the cut and dumped it for a korg tuner.

    so maybe stick a timmy in there some day , paul here is to a great job :BEER

    Paul called me... yeah... as much as is on his plate with work, personal, and building pedals... called me to apologize for the wait. How cool is that! I got lost in the shuffle a few months ago and he wanted to give me the pedal for his cost... who does that? I insisted on paying full price and he assured me I'll get my box in a week. Now that is TCOB! Snaps, Paul... props to you!

    +1 on the Tim, I got mine last week and Paul offered me a discount, but I refused. I knew I was getting a great deal at the regular price. Man-o-Man this is one hell of a pedal. Worth the wait, and an absolute seal at the price.
    He put the same knobs as the Timmy has. I like them better the just the round knobs.
    Paul is one heck of a nice guy. Very busy, but a great engineer.
    I thought about getting a Timmy, too. But I've bought so many peddles in the last couple of weeks, and I don't really know how many more I can sneak by the wife. Plus I'm going to have to see how all the other pedals are going to work out.

    Pedals bought:
    Tim
    Keeley Compressor (Green 4 knob)
    Super Chili Picoso
    Antelope Morning Dew EQ
    MI Audio Blues Pro

    Pedal in the mail
    Pedalworkx Scot 60

    Waiting list
    MI Audio Crunch Box
    Zendrive

    I spoke to Paul yesterday regarding my TIM.

    I've previously ordered a couple of Timmys from him so I have dealt with him before, but even so I've been amazed at the lengths he's gone to to try to get me my TIM before next weeks gigs.

    I just hope one day he takes the plunge- leaves his day gig with Heritage and design pedals fulltime so we can have more great Paul Cochrane products.

    I just got my TIMMY in the mail this morning about 5 minutes before having to leave for my sons basketball tourney. I was bummed. But got home this afternoon and man, I love this pedal. Haven't got to try it with my gigging amp yet but so far it is definitely a keeper. Gonna put my Fulldrive II and Keeley TS9 on eBay soon.

    Paul is the best!
    I have a TIM and I couldn't be happier with my sound.
    Paul is the most honest and talented builder I had the pleasure to get in contact with.

    OK, enough is enough!!!!!!!

    I would like a Tim, or Timmy of my own. Which one is better, and for what reason?

    Also, how much do they cost, and what is the wait?

    I am in the UK, so how do I go about getting one of these?

    Sorry for the questions everybody, but I would like another OD to complement the excellent Zendrive.

    All the best,

    DD

    I picked up a Timmy on trade. It sounds nice and looks great and what is it, like $100 new? The Timmy gets my vote for most tone for the fewest bones. :AOK

    actually, I hope Paul doesn't take the plunge, I think he's got the right idea with the security (?) of a set day job, and working his magic when he can for us on the pedals... I've seen too many, including friends, get eaten up by the toil of running their own small business and the boutique world is fickle, as great as Paul's stuff is.

    I like the idea that he's keeping it small, which keeps his prices and costs reasonable. More overhead means having to build it into the prices...


    cheers,
    jc

    I think it's the same deal with Alf. The Zendrive is another great pedal for a reasonable price.
