The Wampler Tumnus Germanium Overdrive pedal features three intuitive controls – Gain, Level, and Treble – mirroring its predecessors. But the true magic lies within a specially acquired set of vintage germanium diodes, carefully selected by Brian Wampler himself. These diodes are meticulously chosen to closely resemble those used in the legendary Bill Finnegan’s Klon Centaur Overdrive circuit, offering an unparalleled sonic experience.

Limited Edition Release

The availability of New Old Stock (NOS) germanium diodes is limited, meaning only a finite number of these pedals can be produced. Wampler has announced that just 1,000 units will be made, making this pedal a rare and sought-after piece for enthusiasts and collectors alike.

Compact Design, Classic Sound

In keeping with Wampler’s tradition, the Tumnus Germanium boasts a compact design, sporting a stylish silver and red finish. This pedal requires an external 9-volt, 19 mA power supply and maintains the revered bypass circuitry of the original models. Its small footprint makes it an easy addition to any pedalboard, while its vintage-inspired tones bring a classic vibe to modern setups.

Don’t miss the opportunity to own a piece of guitar pedal history. With its limited availability and exceptional sound, the Wampler Tumnus Germanium Overdrive Pedal is a must-have for guitarists seeking that elusive vintage Klon overdrive tone.”
