    DOD OD250 is a good gain boost. Other than that, and EQ pedal like a boss would work well.

    Another vote for the DOD 250. Inexpensive, and does the job very well. It can be used for an overdrive, or a clean volume booster. I use mine for a clean volume booster with my Nordstrand.

    I use the Boss LS-2, because when you get bored clean boosting it's still useful for something else. :)
    Also, you can have up to 40 dB of clean boost. Useless ? Yeah, most likely :).

    It's good but also a bit expensive for what it's worth, so buying one 2nd hand should be perfect.

    the MXR will definitely impart upon your tone a bit of its own character. I'd listen to several first.

    MXR Micro Amp
    EHX LPB-1
    DOD OD-250
    BBE Boosta Grande
    Guyatone CD-3

    these are just easy to find (Guitar Center) type pedals. there are tons by more high end makers.
