Paul Cochrane Audio Tim

 
The Pedal is a flat/clean booster to mild crunchy overdrive effect. It's not a high gain compressed type of lead pedal. This is more about adding boost and distortion while keeping the punch and dynamics of the amp. It has a main mode of operation, and a boost mode that's meant to kick things up a bit. Also included is a post - effect series FX loop. The pedal is true bypass, and takes a 9vdc battery or a standard "BOSS" style center pin negative 9vdc power supply. - - This is taken from Paul's myspace page: - - How to order a pedal... - - For the most part I sell the pedals direct. The Tim pedal is $169, and the smaller Timmy pedal is $129. Prices include shipping in the US. There's also a full week's trial with a full refund with the pedals. - - There is a bit of a wait though... When you call I can give you a rough estimate which right now is at about 3 months for new orders. Because of the wait you don't pay until the order is ready - no deposit. - - The best way to place an order is by phone. My number is 615-896-8555. I'd rather not get pm's from forums or messages from myspace. I'm not the most organized guy, and it's hard for me to keep track of things when orders come in from a bunch of different sources. My home email is paulcochrane@comcast.net - - Phone is best!!!

Paul Cochrane's "Tim" Pedal

Ease Of Use The Pedal is a flat/clean booster to mild crunchy overdrive effect. It's not a high gain compressed type of lead pedal. This is more about adding boost and distortion while keeping the punch and dynamics of the amp. It has a main mode of operation, and a boost mode that's meant to kick things up a bit. Also included is a post
effect series FX loop. The pedal is true bypass, and takes a 9vdc battery or a standard "BOSS" style center pin negative 9vdc power supply.

The main mode has gain/bass/treble/volume controls. The bass and treble controls are "cut" style controls. That means that as you turn them clockwise they will roll off the bass and treble frequencies. Zero (7 o'clock) is flat - no cutting of the frequencies. It seems backwards, and it is! The reason for this is about the taper of the pots. Having them turn the normal way would have created big dead spots in the rotation. I like the fact that setting gain/bass/treble all to zero sets the pedal up for a flat clean boost. Unity gain is about 1 o'clock on the volume. It's really simple once you get used to it.


Sound In my opinion, the Tim/Timmy pedals remind me of SRV a lot. If I were to decribe its sound, I would say that it gives you an SRV in a box tone.


Reliability Absolutely! Paul has been making this pedal for years and I haven't heard about the pedal breaking.


Customer Support Paul is easily reachable and will help you with any questions you might have about his product.


Liked about it It's a Tim!
It has a boost function.
It has an effects loop so you can stick another pedal into it.


Didn't like I wish there were more roon in the front of the pedal to stick the rest of the input/output/9v jacks
The pedal is a bit tall in size
I wish Paul would allow people to customize the finish of the pedal.


Overall satisfaction:
