Wampler's Take on the the Legendary Klon Overdrive Tone

The Wampler Tumnus Classic overdrive mini pedal takes that iconic tone you know from guitarists like Joe Perry, John Mayer, and Keith Urban, and adds dynamic overdrive control as well as boost capability. You can use this pedal as a stand-alone overdrive pedal, a signal booster with a low-end push, or stacked with other overdrive pedals to bring more body into your signal chain. Inside the compact, pedalboard-friendly Tumnus, you'll find Wampler's renowned hand-built circuitry along with true-bypass configuration to keep your signal's original character unaltered when the effect is disengaged.

Adding a Little Flavor to a Legendary Tone

There's a famous golden overdrive pedal used by guitarists to get a particular tone, but you can get that powerful punch at a fraction of the cost with your Tummus Classic overdrive mini. Wampler pedals are designed to hone in on their targeted tone with remarkable accuracy, and can really add a wide range of dynamic reach to your game in one simple stomp.

Wampler's Hand-Built Circuitry

Brian Wampler builds his pedals to ensure that your signal is getting the best treatment possible. Wampler pedals are known for their transparent sound due to their hand-built circuitry and careful attention to detail. As a result, they work wonders with a wide range of guitars and amplifiers and stack well when combined with other effects pedals.

Dialing In Your Target Tone

The Tumnus Classic gives you a simple control layout to dial in your tone. The gain control takes you through grit, drive, and clipping for a wide tonal spectrum. The treble brings in a nice helping of shine and clarity, which may be necessary since this pedal does add a sizable load of body to your signal. The level control sets the volume level of your output. If you keep your gain down low, you can use your level control as a signal booster for solos and leads.

Stand-Alone or Stack It

The boost effect of your Wampler Tummus Classic overdrive mini stacks well with many different overdrive pedals, so you can add in a little life and decibel-boost your signal chain when you need it. This pedal can also work wonders with your amplifier's overdrive settings, so be sure to spend the time exploring how your rig can make your overdrive tone stand out from the crowd.

- Overdrive pedal with boost voicing
- Based on legendary overdrive
- One 1/4" instrument input
- One 1/4" output
- Stacks very well with other pedals

Wampler Tumnus Classic Overdrive Pedal

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.

There is one overdrive circuit to this day has been the most talked about, the most sought after, and the most mythical of them all. It's big, it's expensive, and it has certainly earned its place at the table. Wampler has painstakingly and faithfully reproduced that magical tone in all its glory in an unbelievably small package, and its name is Tumnus.

Three knobs and the truth: The Tumnus' streamlined 3 control knobs (Volume, Gain, and Tone) allow you to quickly dial in your tones no matter what the gig calls for.
The Tumnus from Wampler Pedals has been produced in tribute to THE most legendary overdrive tone in history. 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.

Let's face it, not everyone has room for a four-legged beast on their board. This slender biped slips in and out of a myriad of tight situations. Now you can have the tone. Now you can have history. The Wampler Tumnus, standing up for that amazing tone, but without the outrageous claims often associated with it.

Features:

- Hand Built in USA
- Famous OD/Boost voicing
- Level, Gain, Treble controls
- Small Foot Print
- 9v power jack - DC supply only, no battery connection within.

"Amazing Overdrive!!!!"
Overall: The Tumnus is a fantastic little pedal. It is the best "Klone" I've ever heard or used. The smooth bass it produces and shimmering highs are true to its inspiration. It will work as a transparent boost, or crank it to produce an almost Tubes creamer like warmth with milder mids. It usually stays on all the time in my signal path. I miss it as soon as its off. It makes any guitar I play through it, sound better, be it my tele or LP. Its construction, size, and simple layout makes this little booster a no-brainer. Brian Wampler has done it again! Amazing job. Finally we get that legendary tone in a mini stomp format. This pedal is pricey but it is worth every penny in my opinion. Get it!!! You won't be disappointed.
Style of Music: Mostly progressive rock.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Money well spent! "
Overall: This might be the best money you can spend for your rig. Got a great clean tone but need a bit more of a driven sound? This definitely sweetens the sound. Have a distortion or fuzz that you love but it thins the sound out? Put this behind either one and stack them to fatten the sound. I planned on using it for a bit more drive but it is so good just giving that little extra on the lower settings that I'm using it as almost another channel on the amp to add some beautiful light breakup. With my Fender Bassbreaker 15 I have a nice sparkly clean, kick in the Tumnus and get the drive going and then stack a Tone City Black Tea or an MXR Distortion+ for different levels of drive/distortion. The Tumnus just makes everything sound better. Almost makes me think I need 2 so I can use more of the gain! You won't be sorry getting one!
Style of Music: Anything. Rock, jazz, blues.
