    AC Booster - the mids can be dialed out.

    Believe it or not the Maxon OD-9, it doesn't have the mid hump as the TS-9. Per Analogman many jazz guys use this pedal. I have both regular Ibanez (Maxon built) TS-9, Maxon OD-9 and another set of these modded with the Silver mod from Analogman. The OD-9 doesn't have the same mid hump, but I can highly recommend the Silver mod, it makes a world of difference.

    All good pedals, just different flavors depending on your preference. The LP setting on the OCD can be really close to the BD-2. The HP setting gives the OCD a whole different character, more like an early Marshall.
    Ironically, I have never been a big TS9 fan (sold my Keeley TS9), but lately I have been curious to try that sound out again. I have been thinking about an MJM Blues Devil or something similar. I have a Fargen Blackbird coming and I have been thinking a TS type pedal would go well with it. But... I KNOW my Eternity will go great with it!

    Why not add a graphic EQ?
    My Blackstone Appliances has a EQ scoop knob.

    Lessee... "good" and no mid-hump.

    I can only speak to what I've owned, so here's a short list of the non mid humped pedals that I liked. And by the way - the Eternity and AC Booster DON'T have a mid hump? I thought the E had a pretty significant mid hump that was accentuated by its slight bass cut. And the AC Booster, while having only a small hump, I don't think you can dial it out while keeping the pedal sounding 'right'.

    Non humpers I liked (in no particular order, no claims to low or high gain, and most are sold- only kept 3):

    Menatone King of the Britains (6 Knob)
    Menatone Red Snapper (4 Knob)
    Toadworks Death Rattle (II)

    BJF Emerald Green Distortion Machine
    Xotic Effects BB Preamp
    OKKO Diablo
    Pedaldoctor 4-Speed Overdrive (sorta)
    Nick Greer Royal Fromage (yea, a booster but I liked the slight breakup a lot; thick without middy)

    I've only messed with the Eternity one time on a gig, but it seemed to be way in the TS camp. I would like to try out another one. The buddy that brought out the E to my gig said his other one had a lot more gain, and was a little hotter sounding than the one I tried.

    I wouldn't place the Eternity in the TS camp, but am really surprised that it's mentioned a couple of times in this thread. My Eternity definitely has a boost in the mids and a cut in the bass for that matter. Not that it doesn't sound good though.

    Real eq neutral overdrives that I have are the Tim, the BBOD and the Hotcake :BEER

    I also thought the Eternity was pretty thick through the mids but not in the same peaky way as a TS...maybe a broader spread of mids?
