Wampler Tumnus Deluxe
If you're willing to part with the extra $50, the Tumnus Deluxe is larger, making room for a bass and mids knob, as well as a normal/hot voicing switch. There's also a buffer switch included on the side of the chassis.
You'll also see the input and output jacks moved to the top of the pedal. On the smaller Tumnus, those jacks are on the sides.
On both pedals, the 9V power jack is on the top in the front of the chassis right in the middle.
Aside from some small reductions in what some might call "bells and whistles" in the Tumnus Deluxe, the two pedals are extremely similar, both giving you decent-sounding analog distortion tone. The Tumnus does a good job of cutting features without taking away any core tone quality.
