Malekko Goatkeeper

Maker: Malekko

Model: Goatkeeper

Condition: New



The Malekko Goatkeeper (MGK) is a completely redesigned version of the Lightfoot Labs Goatkeeper, first released in 2007. The core of the pedal is an all analog tremolo circuit using a THAT Corp VCA, which when combined with the built in waveforms, can produce tremolo sounds from percussive to smooth. The MGK’s LFO generation consists of two stages, each with a range of multiplier values and waveform selection.

The two stages can be run in 3 ways:

  • Sequential: The two stages are run one after the other
  • Composite: The two stages are run simultaneously and the effective waveform is a polyrhythmic composite of the two.
  • Modulation: The two stages are run simultaneously and the effective waveform is the equivalent of one modulating the other.


Tempo can be set with the RATE knob or with the Tap/Sync input. The Tap/Sync input accepts a Malekko Lil’ Buddy for tap tempo control, or an analog clock/metronome signal. The DEPTH knob allows the effect to vary from subtle to high intensity.


  • 2-stage LFO with Sequential, Composite, and Modulation modes
  • LFO modes create sounds from simple to complex polyrhythms
  • Stage 1 multipliers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, Random
  • Stage 2 multipliers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11
  • Waveforms set individually on each stage
  • Sine, square, pulse, long square, ramp up, ramp down waveforms available
  • Randomize waveforms on Stage 1
  • Rate and Depth controls
  • All analog signal path using THAT Corp VCA
  • Large analog headroom
  • LEDs show waveform intensity of each stage
  • Relay true bypass with LED indicator
  • Detented knobs for quick and accurate settings
  • Tap tempo via Malekko Lil’ Buddy or sync with external metronome/clock
