Tubesteader shrinks their acclaimed Dumble-inspired Lightkeeper preamp into a compact all-tube design. The Lightkeeper V2 is perfect for guitarists chasing those elusive Dumble Overdrive Special “High Plate” clean tones with bright articulation and a refined midrange.

They state the pedal has a vintage Fender vibe but with tighter bass and more prominent mids, thanks to the Dumble-refined tone stack, which takes a classic Fender circuit to the next level.

Key Features

  • Dumble-style Clean Tones: Effortlessly dial-in sounds reminiscent of classic Fender amps but with a Dumble-inspired tightness and clarity.
  • Versatile Pedal Platform: Use the Lightkeeper V2 as the foundation for your pedalboard, into a power amp, or even into the front of your amp for expanded sonic possibilities.
  • Tone Sculpting Controls: Deep and Boost toggle switches, plus standard EQ options, provide extensive tonal customization.

The Lightkeeper V2 is powered by a standard 12VDC input, internally amplified to 280VDC, ensuring the 12AX7 vacuum tube operates at its peak and delivers optimal tonal quality.

Alongside the classic Gain, Volume, Treble, Mid, and Bass controls, the device boasts dual three-way toggle switches for Deep and Boost adjustments, further broadening the tonal landscape.

Guitar Bomb Verdict

This is another great-sounding Dumble-style preamp pedal and one we think is worth checking out. It follows from the recent AmpMojo Sol Drive, which we covered a few weeks back, and is in similar territory. If you love tube-driven tone, 2024 is already spoiling you for choice.
