    There is one overdrive circuit to this day that has been among the most talked about, the most sought after, and the most mythical of them all. It‘s that legendary tone that every guitarist dreams of. Brian Wampler captured that magic with his original Tumnus circuit, and it has since graced the pedalboards of thousands of players around the world. The Tumnus has withstood the test of time and held its own in countless pedal shootouts, often coming out on top even against the original Klon pedal. The allure of that original overdrive had a lot to do with a very specific “secret” germanium diode, dubbed “unobtanium” by the original creator, Bill Finnegan. It was said that these diodes were the heartbeat of the coveted tone, but they had run out long ago. Despite this Wampler fans have been asking Brian to create a Tumnus using the same vintage specification clipping diode from those early Klons. After a massive hunt Brian found a small stash of these elusive diodes and used them to create a limited-edition run of pedals - the Germanium Tumnus. The Germanium Tumnus is a versatile addition to any pedal board. Stack it with another pedal to help push or shape the total amount of gain, use it as a slightly dirty boost to push the front end of your amp over the edge, or use it as a standalone overdrive pedal and let it roar as nature intended.
