Last night I was able to steal some time in between work and friends to play the Timmy. I didn’t really know what to expect. I heard so much hype about the Timmy before I ordered one and even more after, I was afraid I was going to be disappointed. You know, like when Star Wars Episode One came. You wait in line for hours then you see the movie and the only thing that comes to mind during the poor dialog and slow moving plot is all the things you could have gotten done instead of being in line.
I didn’t have time to set up my board; I didn’t even have time to get my guitar. Just Q’s Eric Johnson Strat through the Timmy through the Mesa Lonestar Special. No delays at all; already it’s not looking good for the Timmy.
Plugged everything in, turned the standby switch to “On,” pressed on the true-bypass switch to reveal a shiny blue LED and let a monstrous D chord ring out.
My life was changed.
I will save more detailed descriptions for a Pedal Profile but I loved what I heard. It lives up to all the hype. I almost forgot about the friends I was suppose to meet.
Needless to say I put Velcro on this pedal as soon as I could and it is sitting proudly on my board, where it will stay for quite some time.
My conclusion is: if you don’t have one, get one.
