    I'm just looking for something that provides a bottom sustained type tone, just above the bass line for creating a warm riff foundation for the lead guitar and keyboard solos. .

    XTS Precision OD - so far it is my fav hands down.

    Faaaat and smooth, very dynamic.

    Not sure what you want is a tubescreamer to be honest. The mid hump is well above "just above the bass line". I think of TS types as being "barky" - there's a real upper-mid peak to them that makes them jump out in a mix. Maybe a Super Tubescreamer or Maxon ST-9 pro+ where you can move the mid-boost down the frequency range where it usually sits with a tubescreamer derivative would work, but I'm not sure?

    KOT is a bluesbreaker circuit I believe, not a TS.

    The green Rhino seems more of a punk OD.. Or is it just me?

    If you have an opportunity to try before you buy, check out the Way Huge Pork loin. It's amazing for bass and guitar. Seems to take everything I've thrown at it so far. Not really a tube screamer, but it's a light overdrive, (soft clip injection) and just gives the signal a bit of a kick in the pants. Seems like it might be right up your alley. Worth checking out the new MXR modified OD as well if you want more gain!

    I would probably say a TS808.

    Never tried a Green Rhino, but it could definitely have more range in it. Perhaps more of what you're looking for.

    True about the position of the upper-mid peak.

    Maybe something with a slightly less-pronounced midrange and fatter low-end? If I'm not mistaken, that is pretty much what a Boss OD-3 with the tone set under 12:00 sounds like to me.

    The Green Rhino is really smooth and warm, but it can cut if you want it to. It has a big emphasis on the low mids. I loved it for playing lower gained leads.

    :huh The Green Rhino is a versatile 808 clone that allows you to dial in bass that you typically lose with most TS pedals. I love mine. This is a good demo:

    I'm very picky when it comes to TS style pedals. Most I find peaky and kind of artificial sounding. But I really like the soft-clipping section of the Fulltone Plimsoul and the MXR GT-OD when it comes to TS circuits. The Way Huge Rhino is pretty nifty with all of its tweakability and pretty sweet sound, but nowhere near as full and lush as the aforementioned two.

    Save youself some money and headache and just get a Digitech Bad Monkey. It will do exactly what you want and it sounds great and is easy to dial in if you have ears.
