These pedals are highly sought after and with good reason.
The Timmy pedal is a flat/clean booster to mild crunchy overdrive effect.
It's not a high gain compressed type of lead pedal.
It's more about adding boost and distortion while keeping the punch and dynamics of the amp.
The pedal is true bypass.

This is an extremely natural and musical overdrive/distortion pedal. Truly one of the stellar units on the market today.

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 larger enclosure size put some off, however, and the boost wasn’t necessary for those who were using other pedals to stack with the Tim - one of its main strengths. As a result, Paul also offered the smaller, four-knob Timmy, which became possibly the first ‘transparent’ boutique overdrive.

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.
