Rhythm Guitar Drive Pedal, Similar to Direct Drive

I need a really good drive pedal that will be close in sound to my direct drive, without just buying another one.

The direct drive is the right amount of gain, and it's smooth and not harsh. What else is similar? I just don't like the idea of having the same exact pedal on both my boards, prefer to have a slightly different flavor that can be just as usable... enough gain, cleans up if you back the drive down. Right now I have a Jetter Helium (not enough gain) and a Musket (too much gain, gets lost in the mix at times).

Rig will be Strat----one pedal----BFVR. Rhythm guitar. Any recommendations?

I'll add- tried Timmy (too bright, raspy), Hotcake (same), other fuzzes.

I recommend the Small Fry.
I run an SS, Small Fry, and LTD-SR on my board. Small Fry gets the most use.
Check it out.

Maybe sell the Helium and get a Red^2. The Jetter Red Shift side might be able to give you that same clear punchy sound with a few different flavors as well. I've been gassing for the Red^2 for a while, but I already have a ton of dirt.

I would possibly trade my Jetter Red Square for the Helium (plus a little cash). I love the Red Square, but I mainly use the Helium side. Let me know if you are interested.

Thanks
