Obviously, with 187 posts here he didn't.

Simple Ebay link posts are perfectly within the rules here.

Would appear that way plus there is a classified section here...

I think smoss is commenting on the fact that the auction is for a "new" pedal, and was wondering if stechmann got on the waiting list for the Timmy just to flip it.

According to Paul C there is no "V1 or V2" of the Timmy. All of them utilize the same circuit and sound the same.

I wouldt be surprised if most of the people on the list try to flip it. Why wouldnt you when there is a large group of impatient people willing to pony up extra dough for instant gratification? Same thing with the KoT etc.

I'm not e-bay savy, what does "flipping it" mean? thanks!

Buying something with the intention of quickly selling it to make a fast buck.

V1 and V2 are 'unofficial' terms. V1 has the switches on the inside, V2 has the switch on the outside.

And yes, I mean got on the Timmy waiting list for the sole purposes of buying 1 just to resell for a higher price.

Circuit is the same, but the recent V2 has an external toggle switch instead of the internal DIP switches of the V1.

EDIT: Dang, too slow on the keyboard! :mrgreen:

No worries. You had a pic and I didn't.

I own a Timmy and a Tim. Paul makes great stuff. I'd love to see him expand his offerings but being a 1 man show that would really add to the wait list for his pedals!

Does the Tim sound much different than the Timmy? I have the Timmy and am on the waiting list for the Tim. I figure for the price, what the heck.

Without the boost side on, they sound the same. The boost side isn't so much of a standard boost. Output doesn't go up, but it adds more dirt.

I run my Tim with the boost on all the time. The boost doesn't do anything on it's own but when I turn the Tim on it's got more gain on tap.

While we're on the subject, I have a Tim and the tone control for the boost function doesn't seem to do much. Is this normal?
