Hey Tim/Timmy users(or former users), have you been using other ODs? The Tim has been my main OD for years and I want to keep it, I just want a new flavor. Can you suggest or point me to a thread? Low to medium gain, preferable with bass/treble tone shaping.
I use an MXR GT-OD in front of my Timmy and it works great. The Timmy is always on just to give some saturation to the Clean sound. I have the gain all the way down on the MXR while the output level is relatively high. This pushes the Timmy into a very sweet overdrive when needed.
Check out the Fairfield Barbershop OD. Like the Timmy, it is a trasparent od but it has its own sound. The sag feature makes it incredibly useful and will get you tones that the Timmy cannot.
My ultimate stack is still running the Barbershop at medium gain, into the Timmy (set for very low gain). The Barbershop takes the dirt up a step from where my Timmy is set. It is insane how much these two pedals sound like my amp does when it is cranked up and I can roll the guitar's volume up and down for dirt.
