1 JimmyR 2 weeks ago I was talking pedals with a guitarist friend recently and he asked me what I thought of the Tim pedal. I said well I like the Timmy but don't find it particularly useful in my playing... So he brought around his Tim pedal for me to try because he insisted it was different. I had heard the Tim was a little different from the Timmy but I wasn't prepared for how different!For me the Tim sounds so much better than the Timmy. Of course they do sound similar, but the Tim sounds so much fuller and bigger. The lows seem tighter and the highs crisper. Now this could be partly my imagination but everything he told me about the Tim coincides with my observations.So of course I pulled his pedal apart to see why. All I could see which was different was that the treble control is wired slightly differently and there is a 4n7 cap across pins 6 & 7 of the chip. Can this be it? So I drew up a Vero layout and built myself one. Sure enough, it sounds exactly like my friend's Tim, and way better than any Timmy I have tried.Then there's the weird boost. It's not really a boost as nothing really gets louder and turning it up only seems to make it a little brighter. And I have no idea what the boost tone is supposed to do! But the boost sounds fabulous. The knobs do barely anything but it doesn't seem to matter as the sound becomes fuller, richer and more vintage Marshall kinda sounding sorta.It's just a great pedal, and a total surprise. As they aren't made any more the prices for used Tims are getting very silly very quickly. When I built mine I left out the FX loop and the pull-boost-boost switch, as I felt both were redundant. So it all fits easily into a 1590 BB box with top-mounted jacks. I've built a few for friends too, and they love it. My only question now is why would Paul C build the Timmy to sound as it does when he could have made it sound so much better? Odd.
