OVERVIEW

Take your tone to a magical land.

The Tumnus from Wampler Pedals has been produced in tribute to one of the most legendary overdrive tones in history. It's the most faithful replication of that tone you will find, now presented for the first time in a mini pedal format and with the quality you would expect from Wampler Pedals. Now you can have the tone and the history. But you can have it without having to kick other pedals off your board.

Tumnus is a versatile addition to any setup, any style. Stack it with another pedal to help push or shape the total amount of gain, use it as a stand alone overdrive, or use it as a slightly dirty boost to push the front end of your amp over the edge. You can even use it as a buffer, because just like the original this pedal is not true bypass. Instead, faithful to the original, this pedal contains a buffered bypass tone legendary in its own right.

      Comments about Wampler Tumnus Overdrive/Boost Guitar Pedal:

      I use this as a kind of always on signal boost to make my amp sound like it's pushed at reasonable volumes, then stack another overdrive after it for more full-on overdrive sounds. This pedal has a wide range of grit so you can go from super clean boost with round fat tone, to pretty dirty. At low amp volumes (like I use for recording or practicing) you can get the sound of pushed tubes, or if your volume is at pushed tubes range, you can fatten up your tone even more or take it over the edge.

      The buffered signal was confusing to me at first (this is not a true bypass pedal), but I get it now. Buffered is essentially a signal boost that helps to make up for signal loss in the path between your guitar and the amp, and this pedal does that, so it even sounds good when it's off. All kinds of companies make pedals that do this. Wampler, being pretty awesome, made a pedal that does this and gives you super articulate delicious overdrive as well. They say they modeled the circuit on the old Klon overdrives which now cost thousands and can apparently only be found in back alleys. Wampler saying this could possibly be hitch-hikery on that hype train, so ignore that and just understand that what's most important is that this just sounds good, and really has a lot of applications.

      Comments about Wampler Tumnus Overdrive/Boost Guitar Pedal:

      I've not had this long, but I've had time to put it through it's paces in various locations of my pedal board. I've settled on using it up front, first in chain, as a semi-clean boost kicking all my other pedals into high gear. It's always on, and yes, it makes every other pedal on my board sound better. I'll add other layers of OD and Boost boxes to this for various levels of grunge or distortion. I'm also using the Xotic EP boost at the end of the Drive section of my board---also always on. These two pedals together sound awesome, and add dimension and liveliness to all sounds.

      The beauty in having this up front, is you can do a simple treble knob tweak to adapt to different rooms (or songs) to roll off a big of high end. I play a Tele and controlling the high end has been an issue for me. This is a nice simple solution, without having to stroll over to my amp.

      A couple of minor complaints: the bright blue LED is blinding (a bit of masking tape now covers mine) & the knob names are in tiny script size---hard to read. As this has become a 'set and forget' pedal for the most part, that's not such an issue.

      This really is a wonderful, wonderful pedal and it adds greatly to any other pedal on your board and plays nicely with all of them. You can't go wrong here---great sound, great size, great value for what you get---a beautiful lively clean or driven sound.

        Comments about Wampler Tumnus Overdrive/Boost Guitar Pedal:

        I use this pedal with my Lovepedal Super Six to get that something extra for solo's and it does that well. the Super Six is an always on pedal and the Tumnus gives it a boost when needed. Works great for Texas blues type stuff. Very Strat friendly if that is your thing.

        Just try it. You won't be disappointed. Can push a clean amp or distort an already driven amp. Does bluesy to rock.
