Due to its vast tonal palette and ability to keep a guitarist’s core tone intact, the MXR Timmy Overdrive has been called a working guitar player’s dream come true. So, what gives Timmy its signature transparency and musicality? First, the Treble and Bass controls on Timmy are cut-only, which prevents you from overhyping your signal. Instead, it puts the focus on eliminating unwanted upper and lower frequencies. Second, the Bass control is wired to affect your signal before it hits the overdrive stage, so you get a cleaner, more focused low end. On the other side, the Treble control affects the signal post-overdrive, which helps you smooth out grittier tones while accentuating pleasing harmonics. Finally, Timmy’s unique three-way Clip switch lets you select from three different clipping types, moving from light saturation to massive, crunchy distortion.
