Distortion pedals: tight/treble/gritty/fender-like?

Hey, I'm on the hunt for a distortion pedal.
I use a bandmaster reverb for cleans, and I'm looking for something that retains a nice focused/shimmer character, but has a bit of grit/gain.

Currently looking at the EGDM standard, but it seems to have a bit of that vox mid-range honk.

Is there anything that would be akin to a fender sound, but high-gain?
Edit: using a g&l legacy w/ loller imperial.

I've been recommending this for practically everything these days, but the XTS Winford drive is incredible and will deliver those tones in spades.

more distortion than the previously mentioned Black '65 but probably not as shimmery.

The Tweed 57 is extremely touch sensitive and is a fantastic base for other pedals to stack onto. (Timmy, OCD, Rat for example)

Three "input" options for three spectrums of tone. I love mine.

Sounds good, probably not enough gain though.
