Cutting to the chase. Anyone who likes the regular/mini Tumnus will likely enjoy this pedal. It's just what you'd expect. The regular Tumnus with more tonal options. I really like having an active Bass and Mid control. I had planned on getting a Timmy pedal but don't see the point now as you can adjust the eq on this pedal to taste and even get a flatter frequency response if you so desire. You can really take some mids out of it or really ratchet it up. Same with the bass. For me this was the selling point of this pedal. I also really like the taper of the Volume knob. On the mini, unity gain was around 9 o'clock. With this pedal it's definitely higher which I like. The buffer switch is pretty self explanatory. Without the switch engaged you have true bypass. Engaged you get buffered bypass. The normal/hot switch is also a nice option but for me, I'll likely keep it in the normal setting most of the time. Brian mentions this in his video on the deluxe but I'll dovetail and say you really won't hear much difference between the normal/hot settings unless the gain is pretty high. Around noon or lower I couldn't discern any difference. The higher the gain, the more difference you'll hear. In short, I really like the mini Tumnus but the deluxe version takes the original and makes it better due to the eq controls. This is going to be an always on pedal for me.
