I still can’t believe it but I actually got a notification for the Tim v3 today from humbucker music. I was able to get one before they sold out in what seemed like 2 minutes. I’ve never played through a Timmy but I’m sure if I hate it I will have no trouble moving it on. Seems like a neat pedal though with some solid quality of life upgrades.

So what's the verdict?
I’m still toying around with it and haven’t got to play it at church yet but will tomorrow. I really think it’s accurate to say it’s just give you “more” of what your amp sounds like.

I run my blues jr just less than the edge of breakup and this pedal seems to push it right into that sweet spot of a little grit while also being able to eq further to remove any low end flub or ice picky highs.

I like the middle toggle settings on both sides but it’s hard to make it sound bad in any setting. I actually got two of them and was considering running a second stage with the gain wide open (sounds great) but the pedal is just too big to run two of them.

The boost is also great. Seems to add a slight bit of bottom end and warmth that can still be tamed with the tone control. It really works well in the worship music style where I may need to play a lead part that doesn’t need a huge mid hump. I still use the SD-1 for that.

I have it paired with a Gain Changer SR for a little more overdrive with a Proco Rat finishing out the third higher gain stage. I can pretty much cover it all with only 4 overdrives. 😂

I hope you enjoy your TIM. To me, it's more than a neat pedal. It's essential. I've been using one TIM or other for a long time. More than 10 years. 15? TIM is the standard by which I judge other clean boosts. Many of which have come through my hands. Including the Timmy, which is a fine pedal, but much harder to use IMO. And lacks the built in effects loop which has enabled me to try many a pedal w/o messing up the board.

The only other clean boost that sticks with me is the Vertex Boost.
