    Now you are asking a different question. You asked for BB-ish tones "cheaply". The BM can get you there.

    Of course the BB is a better sounding pedal, but you asked for cheap :D

    I'd suggest a Barber Direct Drive. It's in the same ballpark and a good deal less expensive. The BB is more transparent and a bit less compression than the DD but overall, they are tonally similar.
