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.

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.

"Amazing Overdrive!!!!"
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.
