    The TC Jauernig DGTM is TS-ish with a flatter EQ and true bypass. love it!

    BJF is a bit on the expensive side.

    +1 LGW is pricey but just about the best out there. IMHO
    I love the Body knob, you can fatten the mids or thin them out.
    :dude:dude:dude

    I'm sure the others you list are good too, and they are less money,
    but the LGW has some great dynamic/touch/amp like feel (as all BJF pedals do) that's hard to beat.
    Surprised that you're not getting what you want from your TIM....as it can be TSish without mids.

    TS pedal w/out mid hump? Frosted flakes w/out the sugar?:D
    +1 on the BJF LGW from the little experience I have with it, but the Blues Devil is a very cool TS pedal. I don't hear too much more mid hump than the Eternity with single coils and it has a nice singing quality about it.

    +1.

    Also, the Analog Man Silver modded Maxon OD1 is TB, and sounds great! He brings up the highs and lows to mellow out the mids, it really smokes!

    Hehe.. :)

    Are you looking for a true "TS" type or an OD to push your tubes into saturation?

    Go read the "Pedal Elitist" thread to see what a sleeping giant has to say on this subject.

    And I like, and have owned the Maxon 808 and Blues Devil and liked them both.

    dude, don't listen to ANY of these people.

    go to www.buildyourownclone.com

    the ts-808 clones are like $75, and it comes with an alternative capacitor to remove the mid hump. it even says, right in the instructions, how to select between mid hump or flat-mids.

    this will be the cheapest choice, is true bypass, is tons of fun, and you get exactly what you want.

    Yeah, don't listen to any other posts; they're offering opinions for crying out loud!;)

    Yeah, that'll be my solution. Get one of those and add the "flat mids" switch. The same capacitor that gives it the mid hump is the one that cuts the lows, so by switching the one cap value, you get both.

    AND if you are certain that you only want the flat mids, you could just hardwire it, with no switches.

    The MI Audio Blue Boy Deluxe lets you dial in exactly the mids you want with an external midrange pot and it works very very well.

    Red Snapper doesn't have the hump, but I always thought the TS sound was the mid hump. The Snapper does reduce the bass a bit, but I like it's transparency.

    HBE PowerScreamer, and it's got a lead boost, too.
