You probably can’t do this without using a two-channel amplifier or rethinking your signal chain entirely so that you are getting all your overdrive from pedals.I guess I should make it clear that I want to boost my clean sound as well, not just the Tube Screamer. So solos without overdrive need to be boosted.
+1I use the Xotic EP boost for just this purpose. There are dip switches inside if you do not want the low end emphasized, through I know many who use it just for the low end sound. In any case, the clean boost is pristine and always tamable.
