Just read on his myspace. I was checking to see when my order was going to be filled and read where he was pulling the timmy's back to do some slight mods. Putting the DC on the back will definitely be cool! :D

Sounds like some good changes. I was gonna order one with the switches on the outside, but I guess I'll just wait a little and it'll be standard! Do you think he's already taking orders for the new Timmy, or should I wait a month or so to order?

NNNOOOooooo!!!! Dammit! Mine was supposed to be shipping this month.:bitch Ah well. I've been waiting this long, a few more weeks won't hurt.


Plus I like the idea of the toggle on the outside vs the dip switches on the inside. :aok

Yeah mine was supposed to as well, but the updates may be well worth the wait!

So hard to decide i have sooo huuugeee GAS to the Timmy (thanks to you guys), but i also need an acoustic. I have good overdrive (808 clone), but i liked to get other more transparent pedal. Damn hard; i need the acoustic cause we play an unplugged song in my band, and i don't have the acoustic. Luckily i don't have so much money at this moment to order Timmy. :D

My Timmy has just come up and he asked if I wanted the standard style Timmy now, or if I wanted to wait another month and get the new style.
New style seemed to be a lot more pedalboard friendly as explained here

" I'm going to move the footswitch down to the bottom edge of the box getting it another 3/4 inch from the knobs. I'm moving the DC jack to the back of the pedal, and I'm moving the dip switches from inside the box to an external toggle switch. " - Paul C

I'm betting there's going to be a couple guys here who insist the original version sounds better because it has "more mojo."

Apparently this is something that's been in the works for awhile. He said he's been wanting to change the Tim "forever" because of feedback he's received on the pedal from a number of people over time.

Long story short, the Tim will be a good bit different from what exists now.

There have been rumblings about a more "Fender-friendly" design... and this is it. If I'm correctly recalling what he told me, Tim 2.0 will have some pretty significant EQ modifications that'll help it deal with brighter blackface-designed amps. The pedal will also switch the "boost" function from a gain boost to a volume boost... and while I forgot to clarify whether or not that'd be independent, I don't think it will be.

If all goes as planned, he's expecting that this will be out before spring, still in time for the pedal's 12th Anniversary.

He plans to phase out the original Tim with Tim 2.0 and keep the Timmy for people who want that sound/design. There will also be a Timmy revision once current orders are filled, but the modifications to that will be mostly mechanical he said.

Why not sell two versions of the new Tim? One with a gain boost and a volume boost? Espically since there is a list always it could help shortern the list by dividing it and also I know a bunch of guys currently love the gain boost.

I'll also like to see some cream knobs like everyone has been putting on. :drool

I use a Timmy with a '65 Blackface Super Reverb and am quite happy with
the sound I get. I understand the Tim/Timmy were designed with Marshall's in mind but I'm digging my tone with both my Tele and Strats into both my Super and BF Princeton also. My question is whether he just redesigning the Tim for BF Fender's or also redesigning the Timmy for BF Fenders as well? Thanks!

The plan is to make the Tim more flexible.... so that's where the changes I referenced will occur.

That said -- I think he's also planning to add some kind of internal switch that would allow users to tame the upper harmonics that make the Timmy harsh for some guys w/ some amps.... otherwise, the pedal will remain the same IIRC, save a footswitch and DC jack move.... and possibly putting the dip switches on a toggle.

if he made a tim with an independent volume boost, voiced for blackface fender and scrapped the effects loop i would be all over it.

With the Treble and Bass roll off knobs, I have never had a problem with getting a nice tone in a variety of rooms withh my BF Fenders so I will likely just stick with my old Timmy. My motto has always been "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!":beer

I highly think the FX loop should just be an option since a lot of guys dont use them. It'll save money on the buyer and make the list shorter for Paul due to not having to but so many of them in.

I think I'm with you on the FX loop being optional. I can't think of any reason I would ever need one in an overdrive.

If all goes to plan, Paul said he should be able to crank out Tim 2.0 with significantly greater ease.

Otherwise, he also said that the effects loop in Tim 2.0 will be a pedal stacker's dream come true. :)

When did you place your order? I placed mine on Sept 9th and Paul said it should be ready about December. I might give him a call tomorrow and see what's what.

Think I'd prefer the current version to the updated version, only because I like the look of it and not sure if i'll like the new style.
