    If you use the search function you'll find you can only get it DIRECTLY from Paul Cochrane - it's designer

    CALL HIM at home after 7PM central - 615-896-8555

    The searches on TIM pull about 5000 posts that go like this:


    Where can I buy a TIM?



    Answer : Do a search



    then nothing. Paul's contact info should be sticky at the top of the page.

    It's kinda weird that in this Internet supercharged marketplace, Paul will only sell by phone. I know he has a computer because he posts on this forum all the time. But the man will NOT answer email. Neither will he put up a web site. You have to CALL him... central time... after work. You will typically get his wife who will ask, "who should I say is calling?" Then you talk to Paul about building a pedal and he's just the nicest guy in the world. It's like freakin' Leave It To Beaver, for Pete's sake. "June, ask Kitten and Bud to stay out of my capacitors while I'm on the phone? There's a good girl."

    I have nothing but respect for Paul Cochrane. His methods are civilized and decent and should be a lesson to us all. Hats off to you, PaulC.

    Sean @ Lovepedal as well. Those seem to be the most commonly asked about pedal builders.

    The TIM costs US$150 and the Timmy costs US$ 100, plus shipping in both cases. Paul charged me US$ 15 for shipping to Brasil.

    Leave it to Beaver?!?!? Maybe if Mr. Cleaver had long hair hangin' half way down his back and chained smoke! Well - maybe I should be more like him!

    The main reason for not using emails is because I suck at them! I've messed up so many times trying to take orders from them that it's much easier for me to just talk on the phone. That way any questions can be answered right then, and there wont be any confusion on my part. I do try though...

    I really wouldn't want a "sticky" here. Even though I do post here often (most of the time from my day job) I don't want to use this place that way.


    Later, PaulC
