Timmy & Hot Cake

That's a great question... I've got both, but I've never tried stacking them! I stack my Timmy (light gain) into my Klone, set to a clean boost, and that's a tremendous combo.

I prefer Hotcake-->Timmy to take full advantage of the Timmy's flexible EQ options. Hotcake provides a thick rhythm tone and Timmy is there for a brighter, slightly dirty boost. Great pairing!

When I had the pair I would have the Hotcake before the Timmy in the chain after testing out both options. I really loved stacking the two, as well as using both on their own, but I kind of feel like the Timmy is great to stack with just about any other drive pedal. It ultimately depends on what you're trying to achieve sonically, so I say try it out and see which one you prefer first.

For sake of reference, I've used this combination with an AC30, Marshall Class 5, and Mesa Lonestar Special. I would set the Hotcake's drive on the fuzzier, fuller side, and the Timmy would be set for a slight volume push with a bit of grit if I really dug in. Loved how the two seemed to just mesh together.

Thanks! I just didn't know if taking advantage of the Hot Cakes buffer would be an advantage first. But it seems Timmy second is the vote for its EQ.
