So I was browsing craigslist at work today and stumbled upon a very rare deal. I'm pretty luck with CL in my area and scored a mint condition Blues Jr last summer for $225. I saw this deal and couldn't pass it up (or patiently wait in line).....



Yeeeuppp, a Paul C Timmy

And for the skeptics out there, it IS all it's cracked up to be. Dialed in some sweet tones on the blues jr with the gain about 80% up, bass at noon, and treble at 3 o'clock. Also have the switch up (for a-sem clipping) and man.... this puppy is sweet.

Super dynamic.... moreso than my OCD... higher fidelity for cord work... I kinda wish it had a bit more gain (80% gain on the timmy is probably like 50% gain on my OCD in HP mode). I'm hesitant to have it be the only drive pedal for my band (as we rock pretty hard) but I will test it Monday and report back.

EDIT: Also tested it with the mesa rec... with bottom position switch (symmetical clip), volume high, and just a hair of gain...... HOLY HELL.... it is better and tighter than any tubescreamer boost... the "cut" function of the tone knobs works miracles for sound shaping

Family shot:

$140... yeah I know slightly over premium (lol like I said... impatient impulse buy)

The guy was also selling a diamond trem for $200.... I pitched him $300 for both but he balked and said he may keep the trem anyways.

dude $140 is a phenomenal price for a Timmy. They are $129 new from Paul, and most grab at least $185 on the used market

Now there's a family portrait to stick in your wallet and show to random strangers on buses!

Have you tried using the EP boost to goose the Timmy?

I did... it's interesting... a lot different from boosting my OCD (which used to be in the Timmy's place). It seems to have a more noticeable volume boost, and less of a gain boost (unless you really crank the EP). I typically use the EP just on the clean channel and as a gain boost for creamier leads for solos, bridges, etc....

sweet

if it weren't for the wait i'd probably have a timmy by now...

hey, just out of interest, what does the switch do- switch between symmetrical and asymmetrical clipping?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

You must be reading my mind.... still in the research phase, but I'm leaning towards some of Devi Ever's stuff.... any recommendations?

It's awesome.... the most fun I've had with a wah wah since.... ever! The momentary rocker is great for adding color to a short solo passage or the end of a cord progression. Lots of different tone options too.

Yea, up is a-sym (my favorite when using it as a stand alone drive) and the middle and down positions are sym... the middle position seems like it has a brighter output while down seems a bit darker.

Personally, I like the Torn's Peaker for crunchy riffs, the Aenima for heavy muffish fuzz, and the Never Drive for leads. Or the Destructo Noctavia...if you can handle it.

Mmmmmm Timmy. I dig it.

On the fuzz front, check out JHS. If you're looking for a good boutique modern fuzz, I don't know of any better than the Astro Mess.

Unless you just want noisemakers, I'd stay away from Devi. They're crude designs and it shows. What are you looking for in a fuzz?

I actually really liked the sound clip of the JHS mini fuzz.... very cool sounding.

I think my ideal fuzz would be kinda grungy sounding... like the Smashing Pumpkins or Bush.... I'm not really into classic rock fuzz tones or shoegaze fuzz tones

Have you heard the Rocket fuzz by Devi?
