Overall: Wow Factor Ten! Set right in between my EGO Compressor and Faux Tape Echo the Tumnus Deluxe was super easy to dial in. Gone are the days of unequal signal with this set up as the level puts that volume right where you want it. Each note of a full chord is very articulate even with the gain pushed up. Super happy with this pedal.

Overall: I bought it. Is it the most accurate klon clone ever? Of course not, but it's not trying to be. It's not quite as open and fat sounding as the real deal but you do get a very authentic gain character out of it. And it cleans up way more than I was expecting. The mids are at a higher band then I was expecting too which is also probably a good thing. With my set up (fender twin clean with the bright switch on) the treble can get a little harsh but it's adjustable so it's not really a problem. I lose a tiny tiny bit of presence but it's completely manageable. I run it pretty clean actually dipping out some unwanted frequencies, on hot too which seems to fatten it up a little and smooth out my dynamics a hair. Tonally the possibilities are endless and I know I'm not even using this thing to its full potential. The gain really does sound amazing.
