This week’s Free Shirt Wednesday post goes to GuitarX out of Denver, CO. Some of you following me on Twitter saw me mention the Tim pedal. Those that don’t know… Jimmy, EffectsBay.com go-to guy for pedal demos, picked up a Tim from Fat Sound Guitars, and it arrived after a short wait. I know he had super high hopes for the pedal. The day he received it he sent me a text that simple said ‘Order it now’. I’ve never heard/seen Jimmy get excited about a pedal before… so I immediately wanted one.
For those of you that aren’t familiar with Paul Cochrane’s Tim pedal, it’s a nice overdrive but the wait is incredibly long. There are some folks that wait over a year to get theirs. You’ll see the Tim on eBay sell for $300+ to the people that can’t wait. Normally, the pedal sells for $169. So I was a little bummed that I would have to get on a waiting list somewhere.. but where? After some strategic phone calls, I heard that Gary at GuitarX was expecting a shipment of Tims, so I gave him a call, and sure enough it was true, and there was slot available, so I jumped on it. Long story short, I had to wait about a week to get it… which is amazingly fast. I love the pedal and I’m in the process to see how/where to fit in.
During my phone call with Gary I mentioned Free Shirt Wednesday, and he was kind enough to send a shirt along with the pedal. He mentioned that they’re in the process of revamping their web site (It’s quite good and cool as it is now, so I’m sure it’ll be pretty awesome when it’s done). They have an impressive selection of gear including some pretty boutique stuff (ie: Paul C. Tim/Timmy, etc.). Along with effects, they carry amps/cabs, guitars and also offered used items as well.
My experience with my Tim purchase was great. Gary was awesome to deal with, and kept me posted during the process of getting the pedal. Definitely check out his site, and if you give him a call, make sure you let him know that EffectsBay sent ya!
Gary, if you’re reading this.. thanks for the shirt!
Now, if you want to be featured on Free Shirt Wednesday.. it’s really quite simple. Send me a shirt, if it’s music related (ie: guitar builder, band, pedal builder, guitar shop, recording studio, etc) I’ll dedicate a blog post about your biz, band, etc. I’ll take a photo with my aging, slightly pudgy mug and post it. Great simple, cheap form of advertising. Still interested? Then check this page for more info
