Hi,
regarding TVthewiredturtle advise now a brandnew Effecttopic:

For classic Rock Im using in front of my Marshall DSL Rack an Overdrive "GT-OD" of MXR, a TC G-Major and a Wahwah "Cry Baby".
So far so good. (maybe later i could add some pics)

But for R`nR and Rockabilly i`m playing a Fender Blues Deluxe and a 6120 Gretsch (with TV Jones Classic trons). I`m using a danelectro Rockabye Delay in the Effectway.

But i`m still looking for a Booster for some Soloparts.
I tried some but never found the right one. (to much distortion, too much useless noise,)

So I`m very interesting in this TIM Booster. But i couldn`t find any shops here in Germany.

Hi Brett
I'm using the Burriss Boostiest2 Pedal for a clean boost, works great!!

I got mine shipped to Australia from Ebay store: Guitar Effects Pedals They ship worldwide.

I'm a fan of effect Pedals, but so far I've only got a Tuner (the danelectro dan-o-matic), a tremolo (Boss Tr-2 check that one out, it's great!), an Overdrive (danelectro Daddy 'O), and the Rocktron "short timer" delay, which is quite good for rockabilly. Next pedals I'd like to add would be the Boss Octaver and a compressor.

Thanks Shaker,

sounds very good, but 299USD... Shocked
(I have to check my bankaccount...)

Do you use the Overdrive section aswell and how is the guitarsound if you use only the bypass?
And is it working with 12Volts batteries or Powersupply?
Would be great if you could answer, cause it seems to be interesting for me.
Cheers

Hi Brett

The Boostiest 2 runs on a regular 9 volt adapter.
I use the pedal pretty much the way Buzz Campbell demo'd it in the video clip, with a touch of Overdrive for certain songs.
The pedal is true Bypass when not in use.

Burriss also make a Boostier II pedal which is the boost section only.

Check it out on their website:
Burriss Amps

Perhaps a cheaper boost alternative would be a Graphic Equaliser!

Few guys on here are using a TIM pedal but I don't really know a lot about them.

Cheers
John

Thank you, Shaker. I meant 9V for sure not 12.

No, i donīt try these cheaper eq`s again. I did it and it was not what i wanted.
299,-USD is not cheap, but at the end a regular price for good quality effects.

The only thing is first i have to buy it and than check it.

I have to think over it scratch (but it sounds good)....

Nice day

Hi Brett,

have you ever tried an Ibanez TS9 or TS808 with hardly any drive in and the level up? Works fine for me as a booster run into a Fender HRDeluxe clean channel.

Hi Wrock, nice to see you again... Cool

yes, sure...i used this pedal in the 80ies, and i know how expensive these (good) pedals are in these days.

I just saw an old Ibanez from the 80ies on Ebay for around 300,-EUR (ca. 250,-USD), absolute crazy.
Imho somebody saw Stevie Ray Vaughn (and some other heroes) playing with the Ibanez and now it`s cult. 25 years ago it wasn`t.
Anyway, the Tubescreamer is very good, but this is not what i`m looking for. I searching for an Boost without too much distortion.

Cheers

Hello Shaker, (and everybody else)

today i get my Burriss Boostiest II.
What an awesome pedal.
Wow, the clean boost is really a clean boost. exactly what i`m looked for.
The Overdrive is warm and sounds so cool through and fender Amp. Amazing.
The only problem i have is when i use it with a normal Power supply 9V, the sound is terrible (only overdrive), with a battery everything is fine.
Maybe i have to use an special supply, i don`t know...

But your advise was great.

all the Best

Brett

two things.. TIM and Timmy pedals are made one by one from Paul Cochrane in
Nashville. There is a 6 month back order that in reality is like 9 months and while
he only charges $150 for one, they go for almost $300 on ebay now... So it
is a beyotch to find one.. here is his phone number state side to get on the list and
trust me its WORTH it:
Paul Cochrane - Tim Pedal (Phone number: 615-896-8555)

The burris boostiest has a GREAT boost side, even the vintage tube screamer is one of
the most musical and creamiest I have played (since they use all allen bradley
carbon comp resistors). The boost side is a vintage class A discreet hifi preamp down
to the scratchy pot. I was a dealer for a bit, but there wasnt too much interest so
I quit. I had one in my own effects chain for some time but the TIM just stood another
head taller. BUT.. to tell the truth I would love to have another boostiest just because
on a standard rock n roll gig level it kicks ass, very much so with strats n teles.
Just remember that a Tubescreamer circuit TS808,TS-9,etc compresses the low end
by default and add a midrange hump as well. This is not bad PERIOD if you arent trying
to comp a Setzer sound...but we arent always trying to comp that sound I'm sure.
I love my Barber Burn units green channel (the sweetest ass Tubescreamer in my opinion because you can control the low and the hi mids in the circuit plus add or trim
bass, treble and presence inside the pedal) this pedals red channel also is the best
damn vintage Marshall sound from a Gretsch ever. bounce bounce
click to see the burn unit at barber's site




my 2 cents... (at least you can get yourself a Burriss fairly easy)

yep, he is nice guy.
we had a telephone- and email conversation and he offer me to repair the pedal without any costs for me.
But the guitareffect shop wanted to change the pedal (and the end they sold it to me).
And thatīs what i doing now.
Ryan of "GuitarEffectPedal.com" is a correct guy. I think this is only bad luck.
The only problem is the USA-Europe distance and customs-trouble now.

But i cannot say any bad things about both companies.
Their service is great and the Boostiest seems to be a very good pedal.

...there in lies my reason for not carrying them. Yes repair is taken care of but if it isnt
gonna be a reliable brick like a Boss pedal, I'm out.

speaking of Boost pedals that ARE made like a panzer and were created for
vintage Fender amps AND give you two switchable voicings...

What does that mean? This happens from time to time with Burriss Pedals?

uhm ... I'm sure the new versions all have better
component orientation, less black silicon glops and better paint jobs.

I had to fix two of the first batch myself.

I've had mine for over 6 months, played a lot off gigs with it and it hasn't let me done yet!
They're solidly built and and the wiring inside is very neat and tidy.

The Boost is great on my Deluxe Reverb boosts the amp just to edge of breakup, great for solo's!

That's very unfortunate that you had a fault with your's Brett.

Cheers
John

See, thats a good thing!! They have taken it to the next level. My batch was
from almost 2yrs ago. Back when I had silver and orange paint jobs on them
with no graphics

btw.. have you played your Dlx reverb with a set of 6L6wgbs and a solid state rectifier plug? that amp is very very versatile...

I've thought about changing the Tubes to 6L6's and putting in a SS rectifier, but at the moment I'm pretty happy with the tone so I'll leave it for the time being.

Its not so much the tone really with the tube changes I mentioned, its the sonic
response. Its like your amp was finally allowed to have a big tight low end and
punchy mids... ( that is if you are using semi hollow or full hollow)

just to make it complete, i received a new one.
It works fine. I used it at home, during the rehearsal and also live.
The clean Boost is amazing and the Overdrivesection works well.

very good pedal and every cent worth.

Hi Elvis, i think Shaker will answer as well and knows more about the pedal than me.

but only one thing:
the settings of Buzz could be totaly different from your personal settings.
It depends of your guitar, your amp, where you play and how you play.

I use the Boost section like this: Output 12 O'clock, Hights: 2 O'clock and Input: 11 O'clock

Overdrive: Gain: 8 O'clock, Treble: 2 o*clock and Level between 12 and 2 o'clock.

Cheers
