    The thing about the Tumnus is it mixes the clean signal with the distorted signal like a Klon, doesn't it? I wouldn't want that on my distorted tone, personally. At least not in a 100% clean amp.

      I'm pretty sure it has a clean blend. AFAIK the Tumnus is essentially a Klon circuit with tweaked frequency response for a slightly fatter lower midrange.

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

          I have not had a chance to really try it out yet at real volume, but I am already pleased with the sustain thing. If it is "just" a good boost for me I will be happy.

It doesn't do power chords well, but it is super-responsive to the volume knob, making it easy to do chords with a major 7th or minor 6th come out clearly. It is an overdrive pedal for people like me who play clean all of the time.
            I had a chance to try it at volume today and with gain around 75% AND volume the same it sounds great! I can totally imagine using that as my core sound. Nice box. No regerts.

              It really makes a difference to use an overdrive that keeps dynamics rather than compressing everything. I think it opens up some new dimensions.

                I agree, Mincer. So many of the ones I have tried were just too smooth. Not necessarily creamy, but just compressed everything to one level..
                This works really well for me.
