An overdrive pedal is used to make your guitar sound like it has more power and gain. This can be done by boosting the input signal and increasing the gain of the preamp. However, the problem with most overdrive pedals is that they are heavy. The Wampler Tumnus V2 is small in size but has a big sound. It is small enough to fit on a board with other units but it delivers a big sound. It has true bypass and a three band EQ and controls for volume and gain. The Tumnus V2 has a smaller footprint than other pedals but delivers the same sound that you would get from a larger pedal.
Overdrive Or Boost
Use Wampler Tumnus V2 as a booster or an overdrive unit, depending on how you set the controls. The pedal is very versatile and can be used with a variety of amplifier settings. If you set the controls to produce a slightly overdriven signal, you can play with the distorted amplifier configuration. Which will give a much more powerful, crunchy sound. If you turn the controls to produce a slightly distorted sound, you can play with clean amplifier configuration. Which gives a much more smooth, jazzy sound. The settings are not set in stone, however, and you can always experiment with different settings. The pedal is very easy to use and comes with instructions, but it is also very easy to adjust to your particular needs. In short, the Wampler Tumnus V2 is a great value mini overdrive and boost pedal.
