Goatkeeper Malekko - any thoughts?

Post by smetak » Wed Sep 11, 2019 2:28 pm

Just caught this:


I have the original, which seems to be a bit hard to come by. Although haven't used it in a long time, its one amazing tremolo effect, very impressive.

The demo I found really wanting. Read a few reviews and this seems to be some sort of "lite" take on the original box.

Has anyone been able to try one? Does it compare to the original?

Love my goalkeeper 2 - on my pedalboard. Does magic. Smart move by Malekko to revive this classic even in lite mode.

Definitely feels limited compared to the original but still cool. I'm wondering if they'll release a deluxe version closer to the original if this catches on.
