This is probably one of the most hyped boutique pedals, but for good reason. It is a bit different and sounds great.

The Tim pedal’s (no longer in production) little brother with all of the tone of its larger sibling, but lacking the send and return jacks as well as the boost channel and boost controls. For those desiring Tim tone in a simpler, more space efficient size. This is a very popular pedal and is on many player’s pedalboards. Sounds great.

This Timmy pedal is Pearl White/Blue. If you look around for one of these pedals you will see many different colors. The color of the Timmy pedal usually indicates it was a run for a certain seller, but the internals are the same. Paul Cochrane still makes these by hand. The Timmy pedal has been copied by several other makers, but Paul Cochrane to his credit has kept the price low for a boutique made stompbox.

A pedal of near mythic proportions, the Timmy pedal works in conjunction with your amplifier’s natural tone to add anything from a mild boost to a strong overdrive without changing the overall character or architecture of your favorite amp’s inherent tone.

A wonderful, natural enhancement to your tone that is extremely organic.

At low settings you will be able to effortlessly achieve a sound that is simply “more” of what your amp already offers. As the gain is turned up, and the pedal’s EQ adjusted accordingly, smooth, singing, round and reedy tones are at your fingertips.

The Timmy pedal’s responsiveness is exactly like that of a great, tube amplifier in that it responds immediately to your right hand’s attack.
