This Used Timmy Overdrive Pedal from Third Rock Music Center is One of the first boutique overdrive pedals, the Timmy has been endlessly cloned due to its fantastic sound and versatile tone-shaping options
Paul Cochrane’s Tim overdrive was one of the original boutique overdrive Pedals generating a dedicated following based on its open, un-compressed drive tone and good EQ options.
The Timmy is squarely in the Tube Screamer family tree, but lacks the pronounced ‘mid-hump’ bump of the Tube Screamer, and is less compressed, particularly at lower gain levels. With the clipping options set to minimum, it’s a very potent boost, useful for driving tube amps into valve saturation.
Any time you see a boutique transparent overdrive layout with volume, gain, bass and treble, there’s a good chance it’s either based on a Timmy, or a straight-up clone
Even after it exploded in popularity, the Timmy stayed at a reasonable price point, with the units still produced by Paul himself.
As many companies aren’t exactly transparent about what they’re basing their designs on, any time you see a boutique transparent overdrive layout with volume, gain, bass and treble, there’s a good chance it’s either based on a Timmy, or a straight-up clone of one.
