I have a EHX Russian reissue that is amazing. I wish I could sometimes boost it to about 13 though. Any suggestions?

Here recently I have been putting a BD-2 after my drives to give them 'MOAR'. Level at noonish, tone set to a skooch over noon, and then drive at 9 o'clock or below.

The RAT suggestions are great too!!! Can't have too much RAT.

I've used a Wampler Plexi Drive on the "less bass" setting into the Wren & Cuff Tall Font Russian with very enjoyable results. I'd call the result Frusciantey ("Strip My Mind" solo). Not bad the other way around either. I think Bluesbreaker-type circuits (which the Wampler is not) will also work well.

Treble booster. My friend told me about this trick, and it's great. I am using Naga Viper to boost Russian Pickle. Great crunchy, singing tone.
