Tumnus Deluxe

With the first iteration of the Tumnus, Wampler perfected their take on the sound of THE myth...

Tumnus Deluxe

With the >Tumnus Deluxe, Brian has set a new standard. Thanks in large part to the design’s articulate-sounding buffer, all of the clarity, punch, and detailed breakup of the original Tumnus are still there. But if you prefer the sound of true bypass performance, just hit the switch on the side of the pedal for uncolored tonal purity. Brian also injected the Tumnus Deluxe with a level of tonal flexibility not previously available on this style of drive. Active bass and mid controls, as well as a regular treble control (the same as the pedal it was inspired by), encourages you to sculpt the tone from this pedal to the demands of your rig. Whether you’re boosting a driven amp or another pedal, using the pedal as a stand-alone overdrive, or crowning it your “always on” tonal sweetener, you’ll find the Tumnus Deluxe’s wide-ranging controls make it much more than just another clone. 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. But its 3-band EQ will enhance your tone with warm low end, instantly identifiable midrange, and just the right amount of top-end sparkle. Unlike some other similarly voiced pedals, the Tumnus Deluxe has enough tonal control to perfect your sound through any rig. The buffer inside the Tumnus Deluxe sounds so good, you might just find it enhances your tone whether the pedal is on or off. But Wampler knows that some players prefer the clean signal path of true bypass operation. With the Tumnus Deluxe’s side-mounted buffered/true bypass control, attaining that uncolored sound is as easy as flipping a switch.

A Modern Classic

There is a reason this circuit has gained the reputation it has – it provides the perfect high headroom overdrive to send your tone into the place you’ve always dreamed it would go. It will bring out the harmonics you didn’t know where there, it will bring out the sustain you never thought possible and most importantly, it just makes EVERYTHING sound better.

Always the Right Fit

If you want a pre-gain boost to fatten up your tone… the Tumnus Dluxe delivers. If you want a standalone overdrive…. the Tumnus Deluxe Delivers. If you need an end of signal dirty boost to make you cut through the noise and have your solos wail… the Tumnus Deluxe delivers. It doesn’t matter if you want to fatten up your pedals, push your amp or just need a beautifully organic overdrive – the Tumnus Deluxe delivers.

Not just another Clone

Taking the legendary response and dynamics of the Tumnus, we added not only an active bass and mid control, but the option to have the famous buffer of the original, but also True Bypass…a hot switch gives you extra gain at higher levels, making the Tumnus Deluxe the most versatile and powerful pedal in its class.

Built for Forever

Brian Wampler’s attention to detail and commitment to bringing you the best-sounding & most usable Effects Boxes on the market is nothing new. Those qualities are on full display within the Tumnus Deluxe. We’re all tone-freaks, and we’re always trying new things, but we hope this pedal finds it’s forever home on your pedalboard, so we built it to last that long.

  1. Jamie M Harrison

    I use it mostly as a preamp or color box but I also use it as a drive pedal occasionally. It plays nice with other pedals and is very versatile. It’s almost always on. Very warm sounding but still maintains the sound of your hands.

  2. Brett

    Never off my board. Stacks with most anything. A Big Muff into the TD……

  3. Brad Richardson

    I live in an apartment and have to use IR’s, I love how this pedal adds extra dynamics. It cleans up when played lightly then barks and compresses just slightly in the nicest way when digging in. I live the tone controls, I can dial down the harshness of my tele without it sounding muffled. With a little of bit gain dialled in on the amp and on the Tumnus I could get long sustaining leads that were crisp and articulate. It’s the sound that I’ve been hearing in my head. This pedal is awesome and is a keeper!

  4. Michael Hecker

    Incredible low to mid gain drive. Even better clean-ish boost. I run mine in the FX loop. The deluxe offers more control but both the standard and deluxe are spectacular.

  5. Kevin Bowdler

    It’s my always on pedal. Turn the gain down, great cleaner sound. Turn the gain up, great overdriven rock and roll sound. It the ONE.
