Wampler has announced the Tumnus Deluxe Overdrive Pedal, a new and improved version of the Tumnus Overdrive Pedal. This new model features a redesigned buffer and 3-band EQ that provides even more tonal clarity and responsiveness than its predecessor.

The Tumnus Deluxe offers the same recognisable signature tones as the original Tumnus Pedal, with a great amp-like response to player dynamics and guitar volume-control adjustments. The new buffer in the Deluxe offers a clean signal path for driving long cable-runs and like other quality preamps, it can improve your tone just by being present in the signal chain.

However with Wampler’s strong end-user focus, a switchable true-bypass is also included to remove the buffer from the signal when the pedal is turned off. Some guitarists prefer the response and uncoloured tone of a true-bypass pedal, so here you'll have the handy ability to switch between whichever option you prefer.

Wampler is highly regarded for its amp-in-a-box style pedals and range of models that pay tribute to classic designs. The original Tumnus pedal was one of the latter, and gave a nod to a hugely regarded overdrive pedal with an almost mythical status. The Tumnus Deluxe aims to give you the same tonality but with even more control of your tone. Wampler says that it can be used as a booster for a tube amp or as a complete tone-sculpting solution, so it will provide great flexibility however you set up your rig.

Either way, the Tumnus Deluxe Pedal comes from a brand that is renowned for its rigorous standards in build-quality and relentless chasing of perfect guitar tones. If the mythical overdrive pedal on which the Wampler Tumnus is based is proving to be elusive, here is a brand-new pedal available now with the same tonality and even more versatility.

In Wampler's own words….

"The Tumnus Deluxe delivers all the string-to-string clarity, high-headroom output, and amp-like breakup that made this style of overdrive pedal so iconic….. Unlike some other similarly voiced pedals, the Tumnus Deluxe has enough tonal control to perfect your sound through any rig."
