Last September, my gear broker-code named “Q,” ordered two Timmys from the legendary Paul Cochrane, one for me and one for him. For many who have been waiting for this holy-grail-of-tone-in-a-box it has been a painfully long one. We were first told if we would get around January of 2010. That didn’t happen.
Apparently, Paul decided to redesign the pedal. The power plug in thingy (this is what happens when I’m in a rush) has been moved up to the top of the box (I don’t understand why more pedal makers don’t do this.) The button has been moved farther down towards the bottom of the box so it is less likely that the knobs will be moved when the player presses down on the switch (love this). Also the clipping switch has been put on the placed outside of the box. This is really sweet for me because I wouldn’t touch it if I had to unscrew the bottom just to switch it.
The redesign and a issue with the paint added to the waiting time.
I friend of mine asked me if it was worth the wait. I don’t know yet. It just came yesterday and I haven’t had a chance to play it. Be sure that a formal Pedal Profile will be made on this pedal.
