MXR Timmy Overdrive Pedal
The MXR Timmy Overdrive provides a huge, responsive range of gritty and textured tones that enhance the sound of your rig while preserving its fundamental character#and in an MXR mini housing, this pedal will free up some serious pedalboard space. It's based on a design created by veteran pedal builder Paul Cochrane that's widely celebrated among high level pros, from first-call Nashville session player Kenny Greenberg to first call L.A. player Lyle Workman to rockstar Brad Whitford. When Paul decided to bring his pedal to a wider audience, he chose to work with the MXR design team. "It's an honor to work with MXR," Paul says. "My first ever pedal was a Phase 90."
Thanks to Paul's inventive implementation of clipping options and tone controls, this pedal is a working guitar player's dream come true. The Clip switch provides three different clipping styles that cover a multitude of playing situations, whether you need an always-on sound that's big and bold with a ton of headroom to slam the front end of your amp, a more compressed and saturated sound for fat, gnarly chords, or anything in between. The Bass and Treble controls offer further refinement of your sonic profile. Firstly, they're cut-only, keeping the character of your signal intact and making it super easy to dial in a clean boost. Secondly, Paul wired the the Bass control to affect your pre-OD signal so that you can your maintain low end at lower Gain settings and the Treble control to affect your post-OD signal so that you can adjust the top end to keep dirty settings smooth and musical.
Finally, the MXR design team worked closely with Paul to select an op-amp that perfectly complements his expertly crafted design. They landed on the LF353, a trusty component well-respected by Dunlop engineers for providing high output, high gain, and hi-fi signal delivery. The resulting MXR Timmy Overdrive is a professional-grade must-have for players who want sweet, harmonic breakup that responds to playing dynamics and maintains the personality of your rig at a fraction of the size of a standard pedal.
