    Talk to seth about his magic boost (fat and harmonically rich). He has a few different versions he could customize for you. In fact he also has a germanium based boost that sounds nice. www.dreamtonefx.com. Also, I hear the BYOC tri boost is one of the best boost's money could buy.

    Dreantonefx@frontiernet.net He is always happy to talk to his customers, he has many different options that he could put in the boost that ranges it from around $50 to $120 I think , but I can't remember.

    P.S. +1 on Timmy if you dont mind the wait.

    Another thumbs up for the Micro Amp! Works great and is inexpensive.

    Zoom PD-01. Simple, cheap and a killer clean boost.

    I like the ToneFactor Hellbaby. I think it's been discontinued, but they've got some other reputable boost pedals (3 pages of them, in fact), some of which are not overly expensive.

    +1000 on the Luxury Drive. Awesome transparent clean boost that does lovely things to my Silver Jubilee.

    I got mine from pedalgeek as well.
