The EHX East River Drive... a really nice TS-808 clone!
EHX had Analog Mike come up with a very authentic sounding Tube Screamer clone using readily-available modern components. I bought a real Tube Screamer in 1979 plus several of the later versions from Ibanez and other companies and the East River Drive really captures the Tube Screaminess! Note: this is NOT like the modded Tube Screamers that Analogman is so well known for, with the only modification being true bypass wiring.
While a reissue TS808 from Ibanez retails for $170, the East River Drive sells new for under $70 and used for $40-50.
One reason I posted this is that the diode mod for the Soul Food in Post #1 mentions that it could be done to the East River Drive as well...When EHX wanted to make a classic overdrive pedal, they asked Analog Man to help them out as we have been working on Tube Screamers longer than anyone else. We worked with the EHX management and engineers and they built this excellent pedal, to our exact specs, with the JRC4558D chip which we have used for so long.

P.S. If you are looking for a supercharged Tube Screamer check out the Way Huge Green Rhino! Now that they have been discontinued for over a year the used price has dropped to not much more than a new East River Drive. (I think that Way Huge will be reissuing many of their discontinued pedals in smaller enclosures, unfortunately without the multitude of internal and external mini pots.)
