    I need something with a similar "your amp + more" vibe but with well...more?

    I'm going through a tophat supreme 16 and I need something to pair with the timmy that will send it into the cranked marshall camp.

    Virgo from Celestial Effects is pretty sweet! Especially when stacked with a lower gain OD. I can't say if it pairs with the Timmy, as I don't have one but it goes great with all of the OD's I do have.

    A lot of these are quite pricey. What are the Mad Prof equivalents for some of those BJF pedals?

    Those 2 are what's on my board now. Good tones.

    BB Mid-Boost. I use it going into a HBOD, and it's instant marshall crunch. The active 3-band eq really lets you dial in the sound in your head, and it's capable of either a big boost, or added crunch, or both. Great stacker for crunch!

    The EGDM isn't really comparable to anything else, and, yeah, that is expensive & only available from Europe.

    The DRD is now a Bearfoot offering too at $222 (which is the most expensive of the rest I listed). There is no MP equivalent for either of these.

    SD around $200.

    DLS around $170 (or less used).

    Good old Rat's can still be had for sub $150.

    Catalinbread DLS, or if your budget allows, a Himmelstrutz Fetto Nord.

    Whiteface Rat and Timmy. Best combo I've ever played.
