Paul Cochrane’s Celebrated Boutique Overdrive—Available from MXR
There’s nothing more satisfying than dialing up the perfect guitar tone, but what do you do when you want to hit it with some overdrive without chucking your hard-earned tone out the door? Famed pedal builder, Paul Cochrane, was well aware of this predicament and set about to create an overdrive that could punch up your tone while retaining its fundamental character — thus the Timmy Overdrive was born. The Timmy pedal was well-priced and highly desired, and the demand for it often outran the production. So, Paul has teamed up with MXR to bring Timmy to a wider audience. Now you can level-up your rig with Timmy’s celebrated transparent overdrive, designed to bring out the expressiveness of your playing, while giving you access to myriad tones and textures via its four control knobs (Bass, Treble, Volume, and Gain) and a Clip switch with three distinct clipping profiles to fit a range of playing styles.
