    Anyone know how long the waiting list is for the TIM these days? And how does it work? Do you have to pay or put down money up front? Or just pay when your pedal is made? Thanks for any info.

    Don't know the waiting period now, but it is several months at least. You call up Paul Cochrane, he puts you on the list. He'll call when it's ready, ask if you still want to buy and then if you want it he then takes payment.

    impressive that he asks you if you still want to buy, although its not like he doesnt have plenty of customers to take it if you dont want it.

    Paul's a pretty good guy, he knows that people get impatient and buy used, or change their tonal tastes. I ordered my Tim and Timmy in March (IIRC, might have been May) and received them both in December.

    I just ordered a Tim in the beginning of January. Paul told me to give him three months...as stated, he's a nice guy.

    It was weird, I was actually in Germany in November and heard a guy with this great tone. When I met him, he showed me his board and turned me on to the Tim (and TGP). He also gave me Paul's phone number. I just called him up on a Saturday afternoon; he answered the phone and took my order. I was a little hesitant at first - not knowing how busy he is or anything, but he was great. I can't wait to get my pedal.

    The process...call him, give him your name and phone number. Say "I would like a Tim pedal, please." Or Timmy, or both in my case.

    He says it will be ready in about X months.

    You pay when the pedals are ready.

    I ordered mine in August and I was told late December. I touched bases w/ him in mid-December just to see, and he said late Janurary, after NAMM.

    Paul will probably chime in here soon

    He has left Heritage Amplification and is doing pedals full-time and seems to be catching up from the SUPER long delays he used to have

    Its a fantastic pedal - if you dont have one - GET ONE

    Yeah, I think they're down to a 2-month wait or so.

    I didn't realize that Paul had left Heritage.
