Anyone have experience with both?
I own Predrive. Its fantastic, but power supply and shape are killing me. I use my Predrive mainly as preamp + clean boost.
How would you compare them?

I own the Predrive and have owned the Tim. Not really comparible other than the boost feature unless you run the Tim a little clean. The Predrive does not offer too much od, at least not in my amp. I pair the Predrive with the Pettydrive and love it.

Thanx for response.
I'm wondering exactly about that clean on Tim. Is it good as (close to) Predrive's clean? Or is it waste of it's possibilities if used only as clean?

The EQ capabilities of the Tim and Timmy are great but the PettyJohn gives you a little bit more control. The buffer in the Pettyjohn is great as well and I don't think the prices are that much higher for a used one. I never used the Tim clean, I had a bit of gain and used it to stack with other drive pedals. I don't think I had a single pedal that sounded bad after a Tim or Timmy.
