    I have a Mad Professor Royal Blue and while I like it's transparency, its sounds a bit soft and lacks a little punch. I've been listening to clips of the Lightspeed and both pedals seem so have the same smooth clipping, but the Lightspeed (at least on the videos) seems to have more punch and may be more to my liking. Has anybody out there had both to compare? What are your thoughts between the 2 pedals, other than the MP having more available gain?

    I have had both. I prefer the Royal Blue. The Litespeed had something going on with the high end, that never worked for my rig.

    You're welcome man! Unless you are playing through a really dark sounding amp, you should be set with the Royal Blue. Good luck!

    If you’re considering the lightspeed also look at the Greer Southland which is lightspeed++

    I’ve had both. Kept the Royal Blue. It has a certain fatness and a certain bite that I just can’t get with any other pedal.
