    TC Mojo is a Tube Scream without mid-range hump.

    I tried the Timmy and didn’t like it. Some great folks swear by it. I know Paul Gilbert uses the Mojo, but I haven’t tried it. I am very pleased with the Xotic BB and the RC and AC Booster. I have been running the RC and AC together and really like that combination.

    Oz Noy uses that same combination and Xotic made a signature combined pedal. I went with having both independent pedals on my board and it’s my favorite OD.

    I have the Mojo on my Pedalboard, i think it is a warmer sounding Tube Screamer.
    Great Pedal

    hmmmm.

    Effect sounds sorta flat like a digital would. It's hard to find the right punch with effect. Sometimes I think I have it and it eludes me...

    A bit of Googling gives it IS all analogue. I guess the computing bit is for the internal higher voltage then....

    I've never heard that mojo mojo sounds digital.

    It doesn't. It sounds great, but it doesn't act like I'm used to with other od's...

    Bought one. Lasted on my board not an hour. Sits on a shelf collecting dust.
    Most ( not all ) inexpensive effects pedals are nothing to write home about.
    If you want a great sounding pedal you're generally going to have to pay a higher price for it.

    I have one. Use it for a clean boost into my 900. Works great.

    My son in law has a Mojo Mojo. I've used it, and we both agree it is a good pedal for what it is and it's price range. We have used it in front of various amps (Vox, Carvin, Mesa) and amp modelers.

    Never thought the MojoMojo was a Timmy clone.

    I've played the Timmy, and the T.C. sounds more like a distortion with a little hard clipping going on, as opposed to the smoother OD type Timmy.

    Right or wrong, I would have never guessed they were alike.

    they may not be. I thought I read it somewhere. They are built alike.
