Paul Cochrane Tim V3 Overdrive Pedal
The Paul Cochrane Tim V3 Overdrive Pedal is available now exclusively from Humbucker Music!
About International Orders: At this time we're only shipping to domestic and Canadian addresses. This was a tough call, but we're still having too many international shipments lost in transit these days. From our understanding, and barring any parts delays, Paul should have pedals available to some international distributors later this year.
Shipping Times: We've always prided ourselves in getting shipments out right away, but when we get a batch in they're usually in large quantities. Please allow a couple extra days to get the orders processed, packed, labeled, and shipped. Also, please know that if you request we ship to a location other than the billing address it could cause a delay in processing the order. Each one has to be manually verified with a phone call to the credit card bank and that can slow down the process quite a bit. We're sorry about that.
Also Note: The Tim V3 does not have an internal 9v battery. The pedal runs on +9vdc with a current draw of 30ma. It uses the standard "center pin negative" 2.1mm power supplies. Due to its use of an internal voltage converting IC it can not be run on higher voltages.
About the Tim V3: We're not sure we've been this excited about a pedal in all of our 20+ years of existence! Compared to the original and much loved Tim pedal, the V3 is in a shorter box with all the pots on top and all the jacks on back. The 3-way clipping switch has the same top and middle settings but with a new 3rd more "open" asymmetrical setting. A 3-way "Hi-Cut" switch is added which helps it sit better with brighter amps/speakers. It's flat in the middle with -3dB @ 3khz and -3dB @ 1k5hz settings. The FX loop is now tied in with the boost for added flexibility in that mode. Internal voltage converter included so the input is +9vdc only. Additionally, the new Tim V3 is true bypass, but controlled by a Soft Switch relay circuit that minimizes the loud pop/click that some pedals have when engaging the switches.
About the Tim: At low settings you will be able to effortlessly achieve a sound that is simply "more" of what your amp already offers. As the gain is turned up, and the pedal's EQ adjusted accordingly, smooth, singing, round and reedy tones are at your fingertips.
Like the Timmy, the Tim pedal's responsiveness is exactly like that of a great, tube amplifier in that it responds immediately to your right hand's attack.
The Paul Cochrane Tim is absolutely a legend in the world of overdrive pedals, and we're super proud to be helping bring it back to discerning tone enthusiasts.
