The MXR Timmy Overdrive is a highly acclaimed pedal that offers a vast array of gritty and textured tones, making it a favorite among professional guitar players. Designed by veteran pedal builder Paul Cochrane, the Timmy Overdrive has earned praise from notable musicians such as Kenny Greenberg, Lyle Workman, and Brad Whitford.

Kenny Greenberg, a highly respected session guitarist and producer in the country music scene, relies on the MXR Timmy Overdrive to enhance his smooth and versatile playing style. Lyle Workman, a talented guitarist and composer with an impressive portfolio of film soundtracks and TV shows, showcases the Timmy Overdrive's versatility in various musical contexts. And Brad Whitford, known as one of the guitarists of the iconic rock band Aerosmith, endorses the Timmy Overdrive, underscoring its appeal in rock and blues-oriented styles.

The pedal's clipping options and tone controls provide tremendous versatility, allowing guitarists to achieve a variety of sounds to suit their playing styles and musical needs. The Clip switch offers three different clipping styles, enabling players to choose between a big, bold always-on sound with ample headroom, a more compressed and saturated sound for fat chords, or something in between.

The Bass and Treble controls add further refinement to the tone shaping. These controls are cut-only, ensuring that the signal's character remains intact while providing ease in dialing in a clean boost. Paul Cochrane implemented a clever wiring configuration that lets the Bass control affect the pre-OD signal, preserving the low end at lower gain settings. Similarly, the Treble control affects the post-OD signal, allowing adjustments to the top end while keeping dirty settings smooth and musical.

The MXR design team collaborated with Paul Cochrane to select the LF353 op-amp, renowned for delivering high output, high gain, and hi-fi signal delivery. This careful component selection ensures that the MXR Timmy Overdrive meets professional-grade standards, offering sweet, harmonic breakup that responds to playing dynamics while maintaining the character of your rig.

Despite its powerful capabilities, the Timmy Overdrive comes in an MXR mini housing, saving precious pedalboard space and making it a practical choice for gigging musicians and pedal enthusiasts.

This pedal can be powered using a Dunlop ECB003 9-volt adapter. Additionally, it is compatible with MXR's DC Brick, Iso-Brick, and Mini Iso-Brick power supplies (though these are not included with the pedal).

For guitarists seeking a versatile and high-quality overdrive pedal that retains their rig's personality while providing a broad range of responsive tones, the MXR Timmy Overdrive is a must-have. Its reputation among professional players like Kenny Greenberg, Lyle Workman, and Brad Whitford, and its space-saving design make it a standout choice for enhancing your guitar setup with rich harmonic textures and dynamic response.
