    I wonder when these will be up to 300hundred?



    I'm sort of ashamed to say I would pay 300 if I didn't have one

    Looks to be the same color as the one I had.

    Please note that the highest bidder is from Switzerland/Europe. While it is hard to get one in the US, it is even harder to get one from Europe (i did that, so i know); making phone calls in the middle of the night; bad english language etc. Still I'd feel a little uncomfortable to pay someone $230 for a timmy as Paul works so hard to get only $100 for a it. But YMMV

    So how does one go about ordering one of these from Paul directly?

    Call 615-896-8555 after 7PM central time on weeeknights. There's currently a 3 month wait, but it's worth every minute..

    Harder, but achievable - I'm on the list from the UK. In fact, I think Paul C kinda appreciates people buying his pedal from the other side of the world, at 2 am local time.

    Hi, first post here,just wanted to ask,how much does the Timmy cost when buying direct from Paul C?I'm interested getting one as i'm building my board up from scratch now,also,if anyone had an email address for him i would really appreciate it,im in ireland so making calls can be awkward with the time difference.
    thanks very much,

    Welcome to the Gear Page!

    The current price is $105 USD, the bargain of the century..

    Paul's not very consistent w/e-mail. You'll just have to get up in the middle of the night and make the call. Timmy's definitely worth losing a little sleep over...

    thanks a lot for that jz,much appreciated!im trying to stop myself from making the call at the moment as im waiting on a hotcake bluesberry,i know thats a different pedal,but i already have a keeley ts9 dx,so i want to see where i stand tone/sound-wise when i have them set up and in a better position to determine what i want/need.
    thanks again gang!

    Hi,

    Well there's a price and an immediate price.
    I think few would argue if it was 220 USD or whatever either way

    If you want one of these you pretty much have one choice and that's getting one as there's nothing like it.
    Now, then you can figure out how fast you want it.

    If you think about it Paul's a nice guy and fun to talk to so you might want to buy one from him.....that's like tapping into the family

    Ah but life's full of choices

    Just a thought
    BJ

    I was the one bidding from Switzerland up to 200-something.
    Indeed, in Europe, one pays a 20-100% premium on US guitars,
    effects, and amps.
