Wampler Tumnus 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. 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. 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. We aren’t going to sit here and claim it has magical parts, or we sourced out 60 year old diodes that make it perfect, but we are going to say that during our research we looked at everything available and then only used the parts that Brian chose to replicate that amazing tone. 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. Now you can have it all without having to sell your prized gear possessions. The Wampler Tumnus, standing up for that amazing tone, but without the outrageous claims often associated with it.

Wampler Tumnus

I was after an overdrive pedal with a small footprint to complete a small board I was putting together for rehearsals, jams, low volume gigs and home studio use. The reviews I'd seen for the Tumnus where all very positive so I bit the bullet and spent the big bucks to replace other pedals which weren't doing it for me. I was not disappointed. I love this thing. It's beautiful. Gives a richness to your lead sound that is really quite inspiring. It's very versatile for chord work also - anything in that low to moderate gain bracket where you need to cut through momentarily. I haven't used it for anything super loud or grungy so can't comment about those applications. I am using PRS guitars through Mesa Boogie or Fender amps.

Always on

Great overdrive, I haven't had enough time to be appropriately thorough, but it feels like a great 'always on' device with only a touch of gain. I also behaves beautifully in front of my Zen Drive, just using it into gorgeous creaminess with my Strat. I have a feeling it will be one of those necessary items on my pedalboard. Does it sound like a Klon Centaur? I don't know, I wouldn't spend 1000s of dollars to find out! I will do a thorough review and put it on maciekmusic.com.
