The Klon KTR versus the Wampler Tumnus

The Klon KTR versus the Wampler Tumnus

In this video I compare the Klon KTR versus the Wampler Tumnus overdrive pedal. The Klon KTR is the newest  version of the infamous Klon Centaur overdrive pedal.  The Tumnus crams most of the tones from the KTR into a much smaller box.  I say “most” because the Tumnus is different.  It also adds a little extra as well. What the Tumnus adds is low end and what it lacks is a buffer switch which is what might sway you one way or the other.  To my understanding the Tumnus is true bypass while the KTR can either be true or buffered bypass.   (Best Price on Amazon Here)

The Tumnus saves a lot space thanks to the smaller footprint but the jacks are on the side where as on the Klon they are on the top.  Top sided jacks offer the advantage of space saving too because you can literally bunch pedals together.  That said though, I think the Tumnus would still save at least one half of the space even with the side jacks.

As I mentioned tonally they are basically the same except the Tumnus has more low end.  In a live band situation, the low end is sometimes lost in the mix.

Check out this comparison video between three awesome overdrive pedals.  I think they all have their own particular sound and depending on what sort of overdrive pedal you’re looking for either of them are a good option.

Analogman King of Tone Overdrive Distortion Pedal Review

This is the Analogman King of Tone Overdrive & Distortion Pedal. It’s one of the most hyped pedals on the internet for electric guitar players.

Check out the official site – http://www.analogman.com/kingtone.htm (worst website design of all time btw).

The video below is the Analogman King of Tone vs The Klon KTR which is also another really hyped pedal.  Both are actually awesome but they can run a fair price tag!

Overall this is a great pedal.  You could simply daisy chain two of your favorite pedals to get the same sort of effect, but that said this pedal has a very open and natural sounding tone that will appeal to musicians and especially blues players.
