EBS Multidrive can do clean boost right through to roaring overdrive. Doesn't get super crazy but stays fairly transparent from memory.
Aguilar Agro, same with maybe more gain on tap and more tonal control.

Update - I just realised there is a hidden "Low" control on the One Control Hookers Green Bassmachine!
Well it's actually not even hidden but it's not that obvious either - this somewhat changes my opinion of it... Gonna gig it tonight and see how we go :-)

I'd read great reviews on it, saw some great demo vids and heard some great samples. Got oit home, plugged it in and hated it. Now that I've turned the low all the way up it's actually VERY good. Well at home it is anyway - for me it's all about how it goes at a gig...

Another vote for Darkglass Alpha Omega. For me it can cover low gain OD right thru to Fuzz. I’m down to literally tuner, compressor and the Alpha Omega only now on my board and totally happy with that!

Nope - but a bit strange that they say it’s 9V when the pedal itself says 12V.
Here’s a link to a demo - listening on the phone, it sounds pretty good.

That Mozztronics pedal has me interested. I think the website say the pedal will work 9-12 volts DC.
I wonder if it's based off something like a TS?

I'm not yet willing to have it not accompanied by VMT and b?k brethren just yet, but it /is/ super versatile.

Yeah, I run it into a M900, so I do have the B3K and VMT tones too. Best tone yet is AO into B3K
