    I know of the TBIAC, which i once owned, and it seemed to have a very minimal effect. And i have a Crazy Horse on the way. What else is out there? :dunno

    Menatone Foxy Brown. Might be similar to the TBIAC

    The Maven Peal Howler has a 'sag' control.

    Or you could add a sag resistor to your amp between the rectifier diodes and the power supply caps, if you're into that sort of thing...

    I've got a Lovepedal Les Lius and it seems to have a good amount of sag.

    Menatone FB and TBIAC have already been mentioned, but their WMB also does

    Fulltone Distortion Pro has a very useful saturation control knob. Many folks consider it a crappy pedal, but IMO you can find certain settings that will provide you nice tones.

    the Tech 21 XXL is actually designed to do just that. it has a "warp" knob that simulates sag.
