A lot of companies make overdrive pedals but very few come close to the tone of the vintage classics. Every component that goes into the Tumnus is chosen by Wampler's tech experts for a sound as near as possible to that gold/silver boutique overdrive without you having to spend a small fortune on ebay.
Great range of tones
The Tumnus is versatile. You can stack it with another pedal to help push your gain, use it as a stand alone overdrive, or use it as a dirty boost to push the front end of your amp. The Tumnus’ 3 control knobs (Volume, Gain, and Tone) allow you to quickly dial in the sound you're after.
This pedal has buffered bypass that maintains both signal quality and level with a low output impedance that works with long cables and feeds other true bypass pedals without losing as much tonal quality as true bypass.
Here's what Wampler have to say about the Tumnus
