I know I'm late to the party on this one, but man, I'm really impressed. When a pedals gets overwhelmingly positive reviews I take notice, but that doesn't always mean it will work for me. The Lightspeed lives up to its reputation in my opinion. Lots of glowing reviews out there so I'm not going to rehash, but I have noticed some reviewers describe it as "scooped". Some even say it boosts bass. This is simply not true in my experience. I find the Lightspeed to be flat, i.e. it doesn't cut or boost at all. This may be perceived as "scooped" if you're accustomed to OD pedals that cut bass/boost mids, and a lot of them do. I set my amp the way I like and I don't want an OD pedal to change it. For a lead boost, yes, I like a little more mids, but I don't think that's the best application for the Lightspeed. I've been through many OD pedals in my 35+ years of playing guitar. The Lightspeed is easily in my top 3. It might not be for everyone, but you're missing out if you don't at least try one.
