Wampler Tumnus: Everything You Need to Know

Who better to discuss an overdrive pedal then the person who designed it themselves? Brian Wampler of Wampler Pedals stopped by the Sam Ash Studio to give us a taste of the Tumnus Overdrive pedal. He mentions how this pedal was based on a more expensive overdrive pedal. It’s pretty clear that he is referencing the very rare Klon Centaur of which Wampler landed on the cleverly named Tumnus. This pedal offers high headroom for a lot of dirt, but many players use it for a nice clean sparkle as well. Brian will show you all this and more as it he gives you an expert look at one of his own pedals, the Tumnus overdrive.
