    Right now I've got a Zakk Wylde OD, but it sounds scooped. Can anyone recommend a pedal which boosts the mid section?

    It's more like what doesn't. You have a scooped pedal? That's rare. How about a Bad monkey, they're mid bumped.

    The ZW OD is based off of the Boss SD-1, which is based on a TS circuit. I've A/Bed the ZW and SD-1, and they were VERY similar and both had that familiar TS mid bump - no mid scoop at all.

    This. There's quite a bit of mid hump with the Wylde OD.

    not to sure but i hear the mxr classic distortion or is it overdrive is a ts clone that has a switch that makes it a zw overdrive. maybe your zw overdrive has the switch to make it the ts clone...

    barber tone pump and way huge green rhino are my favorite mid-humped pedals...I never liked the bad monkey...hardwire overdrive is another ts sounding pedal that I liked
    Not all pedals are mid humped, some are nuetral...
