    I'd say the Blues Devil. But like BluzBraker said, the Landgraff is you got the $$$$

    MI Audio Blue Boy - can do TS stuff and MUCH more.

    Reverend Drivetrain II - TS flavor with Treble and Bass controls.

    The Keeley TS-9/808 Plus Mod is also very nice, but I much preferred the MI BB for it's flexibility.

    Everytime anyone asks this, the usual response is the Blues Devil. Never played one though

    I've got Vaughn's TS9 mod - very cool, although I've been playing with my zendrive lately.

    I'm gonna say Zendrive...

    no one may agree, but that's what i hear when i use. Not exactly a TS-9, but a better take on that concept.

    If you do a search, you're gonna have pages of answers...

    What do you like about the TS9? The gain level? The bass roll/off mid-hump EQ thing?

    What did you dislike about it (non-true bypass? bass roll/off and mid-hump? poor EQ control)?

    If you can clarify that, suggestions might be more to the point.

    I'm very impressed with this -

    Awesome pedal that doesn't color your sound but adds just the right amount of natural od. Not a metal pedal for sure. I found this to kick my Keely-modded TS-9.

    I liked how it gave pretty realistic tones, and nice distortion harmonics. Especially that harmonic tone when playing double stops.
    But I didn't like how some notes were changed from the original tone into something else. Like a high note wasn't quite as high. This being heard when going back and forth between pedal on/off.

    there are lots of good pedals out there that are essentially upgraded or hot-rodded ts9s, which people have already mentioned (mods, landgraff, etc).

    however, you might also look into a bjf little green wonder. it's similar enough to a ts9 that it has that familiar green sound. but it's different enough that it sounds unique. higher headroom, more bass, etc.
