    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.

    I'd say get your TS-9 Modded many good Mods out there. I just finished building a website for a pedal maker as a favor, he does TS-9 Mods it also has sound clips check it out at. CMATMODS you can even do it DIY check out Monte Allums

    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.
