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.
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.
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 OD, or use it as a slightly dirty boost to push the front end of your amp. Even use it as a buffer, because just like the original this pedal is not true bypass. Instead, this pedal contains a buffered bypass tone legendary in its own right.
3 streamlined 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 claim it has magical parts, or that 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.
Quite self explanatory! This adds grit and dirt to the affected signal. Start with it all the way off (counter clockwise) and up the volume from unity and you have an amazing boost, it will fatten up your tone remarkably… When you bring the gain control up the glorious thickness this pedal is famous for appears – as a stand alone boost, overdrive or pre-gain boost, this is the key to finding your tone.
You guessed it, this is where the level comes from. You will probably want to start at an equal volume to it bypassed, unity. You’ll probably be surprised that this is much lower than other OD pedals, this is because one of the features of this pedal is the headroom in it to act as a pre-gain boost.
Adds top end to the signal. Once again, this is extremely useful if you use the pedal as a pre-gain boost or overdrive as it’s the top end that makes your tone cut through the mix!
A beautiful sounding pedal that takes up little room on your board. If slimline is your jam then checkout this mini overdrive & boost pedal today!
