Wampler Tumnus Deluxe Overdrive Pedal

With switchable buffered or true-bypass operation, the Tumnus Deluxe is Wampler's perfected take on the highly regarded Centaur-style transparent overdrive.

With the first iteration of the Tumnus, Wampler perfected their take on the sound of THE mythical overdrive. With the release of the Tumnus Deluxe, Brian has set the new standard. Thanks in large part to the design's articulate-sounding buffer, all of the clarity, punch, and detailed breakup of the original Tumnus is still there. But if you prefer the sound of true bypass performance, just hit the switch on the side of the pedal for uncolored tonal purity. Brian also injected the Tumnus Deluxe with a level of tonal flexibility not previously available on this style of drive. Active bass and mid controls, as well as a treble control, the same as the pedal it was inspired by, encourages you to sculpt the tone from this pedal to the demands of your rig. Whether you're boosting a driven amp or another pedal, using the pedal as a stand-alone overdrive, or crowning it your "always on" tonal sweetener, you'll find the Tumnus Deluxe's wide-ranging controls make it much more than just another clone.

Legendary Tone and More

The Tumnus Deluxe delivers all the string-to-string clarity, high-headroom output, and amp-like breakup that made this style of overdrive pedal so iconic. But its 3-band EQ will enhance your tone with warm low end, instantly identifiable midrange, and just the right amount of top-end sparkle. Unlike some other similarly voiced pedals, the Tumnus Deluxe has enough tonal control to perfect your sound through any rig.

- Active bass and mid controls boost or cut read more the desired frequencies
- A classic treble control like the original perfects the pedal's higher frequencies
- Sounds great as a stand-alone overdrive or a shapeable boost
- Normal/Hot switch goes from standard Tumnus gain to higher gain

Buffered or True Bypass, It's Your Choice

The buffer inside the Tumnus Deluxe sounds so good, you might just find it enhances your tone whether the pedal is on or off. But Wampler know that some players prefer the clean signal path of true bypass operation. With the Tumnus Deluxe's side-mounted buffered/true bypass control, attaining that uncolored sound is as easy as flipping a switch.

- Same magic-sounding buffer that we've all come to love
- Easily accessible true bypass performance for uncolored tonal purity
- Convenient side-mounted switch selects between the 2 modes

From its convenient top-mounted jacks to its amazingly flexible switching, the Tumnus Deluxe overdrive pedal is every bit a Wampler.

I was super excited to get this guy. At first I wasn’t sure about what I thought about it. After some tweaking and actually playing with it live this thing chimes. It adds some incredible sparkle to my sound. I can’t imagine my rig without it now. I prefer it being on true bypass. I feel like the pedal over takes my tone when on buffered setting. Incredible transparent OD. Pushes your amp just the way you want it to. Very pick sensitive.
