Not me. I've been using Timmy or TIM pedals with an LM1458 through a Vox AC30 since 2005/6 and now a Magic Brit MK2 (AC15 style). I also find asymmetrical clipping gets me a little closer to the natural Vox cranked a little louder sound.Thanks! So either way it is worth getting the LM1458 chip for my Timmy.
Does anyone prefer the stock over the LM1458 with Vox amps?
I've had the stock version and I now have the LM1458 version (surf green version). There is no noticeable difference in noise. I've always found the noise level to be small with Timmy's to begin with. But yeah, I don't see any increase in noise at all.Does the LM1458 chip increase the noise levels? Plus. I heard the 1458 can be radiophonic. I love how quiet the stock version is at the moment.
I'm going to say no on this. The Timmy becomes only a bit smoother and tames the highs. I haven't tried the Walrus Audio but I've noticed a lot of the other "Timmy but smoother" type ODs to add character whereas the Timmy doesn't add anything but "more."Both pedals are open and transparent, but the stock Timmy is gritty while the Mayflower is smooth. By changing the chip in a Timmy to a LM1458 are these pedals pretty much identical?
