A solid overdrive choice
Hammer2021 13.09.2021
I play mainly blues/blues rock, and like to have a clean sound that is just pushing over the line, so has a bit of break around the edges. This pedal responds nicely to dynamics. I'm able to set it fairly clean, but with a bit more pick attack I can push into into a light breakup overdrive. As such, for the tone I like, this pedal performs perfectly. Right now, for my preferences, the Wampler Euphoria or Nobels ODR-1 are better for my desired sound.

It drives well with the gain turned up, and is a pleasing sound on my tube amps (Marshall Class 5 and Fender Pro Junior which I keep at clean volume levels).

I no real criticism of this pedal. It does everything it's supposed to, and I do like the tone, it's just that right now I have other pedals I prefer with my amps. It's definitely well worth trying out, though, and may have perfect for tone you and your setup!

I don't know the original Timmy by Paul Cochrane, but this is pretty great. I run it as a first stage overdrive into a Wampler Tumnus (with gain turned pretty high) to get a singing full-spectrum overdrive. With the clipping switch and the bass and treble pots you can dial in pretty much any sound – from high-headroom sparkling clean to compressed clipped saturated tone.

Great transparent boost/overdrive
Diatonico 28.08.2021
Pros:
+ Fully transparent (tone knobs all the way clockwise)
+ Enough gain to drive an amp
+ Can serve as a volume boost with the gain all the way off
+ Practical mini format for those inclined

Cons:
- The difference between the 3 modes is very subtle
- Bass/Treble knobs can only cut, not boost
- It doesn't offer the same volume boos as the Xotic EP Booster, if that's what you're looking for

A bit underwhelmed
The Tone Lounge 14.12.2020
Now, don't get me wrong, this is a great little pedal. The construction is road worthy, the knobs and footswitch feel real solid. No issues in terms of it's construction and foreseeable reliability.

I've heard that this was "THE" pedal for any Vox owner, and it does play really well with my AC15. My main issue is the high end. It's very fizzy and hard to dial out. Even with careful dialing in of the MXR Timmy, the high end is either fizz or gets too dark for my taste,

I have other great "transparent" pedals, and perhaps I would not be so picky if I had nothing else to compare it to. All-in-all this is a great pedal, I'm just not too impressed with the fizzy high end.
