    Hi, I use a hand bulit deluxe reverb clone that sounds really clean with a lot of headroom .usually I run a pair of tube screamers in front of it ,one witrh zero gain just to get a richer sound ,the other one for solo with the gain pot half way.I'm looking for a booster to replace the first one to obtain a "more " sound but dynamic .I tried for a short period an archer and I like it but it had too much bass .what can you suggest ?
    mxr micro amp ?
    maxon od9?
    others?
    sorry , I forgot to tell that I use mainly strats

    So you need a less bassy clean boost.
    Xotic RC booster has treble & bass so you can cut the bass.
    I need less bassy pedals too and have an Archer, but the bass is just right for me.
    Not a lot of OD circuits have much less bass than that, one option is turn up the treble on the pedal and turn down the level.
    Or turn down the bass on the amp.

    MXR Micro is a great clean boost. Best I know of for simple clean boost. It adds a tiny bit of treble but makes your amp much "bigger" without distortion.

    As good or better yet is to add the Fender mid boost to your guitar. On 0 it does the same thing but gives you other things to use too.

    I got this one (37€), to put it that way, in front of a TS mini and a Deluxe Rev Amp.
    I didn't tested yet.

    No tweaking eq, but the price worths a try.

    My Fenders really like the Xotic EP Booster with that mid hump - sounds great either before or after an overdrive.

    The newer Micro Amp + has a treble and bass add/cut. Plenty of clean gain and some tone shaping.

    I suggest the Wampler Ego Compressor.

    I've got one and use it in the loop of my Marshall Mini Jubilee for a solo boost/fattener. I also recently bought a used Xotic Super Clean, which has a set of DIP switches on the side that allow some eqing. I've set mine to give the higher end boost and it just adds a nice amount of clarity to clean playing or a bit of extra bite into drive pedals (or the amp set to overdrive).

    I must try it in my Deluxe, but haven't had chance yet.

    I use a Fulltone Fat-Boost, the first one. Great combination

    I use a rangemaster with my BFDR. A treble booster on a BF amp, go figure :)

    But it works great.

    The Unit 67 incorporates boost, compression, EQ and range master mid boost controls in one superb unit. It’s exceptional and it’s not moved from my board since I got it. Not cheap but super simple and effective. I use a regular DRRI with a couple of mods.

    Joyo American Sound. It is based on Fender amp sound and I’ve found it’s a very transparent boost when coupled with an actual Fender amp. And it’s got a 3 control EQ

    +1 on the EP Booster. Sprinkles a little echoplex pixie dust on my DR. Always on. Push it with 18V, if you can.

    Donner Boost Killer. Works well for me. It just gooses the signal I send to it from the rest of my pedal chain. Not expensive, and it gets the job done.

    Have you considered a lowly EQ pedal? Most can do a clean boost, and you can tweak your EQ signal to reduce the bass much more precisely than a with just bass or tone knob.

    I have a Behringer EQ700 Graphic Equalizer Pedal that Josh Smith said he had on his board for years, he recommended it , a clone of the boss eq pedal,
    I also use the T.C. Electronic Spark Boost pedal, that can do the Dallas Range Master thing. It was used to brighten up the dark sounding English amps , Marshalls.
    I like the spark it works like a charm.

    Maybe a Zvex Super Hard On or Super Duper 2-in-1 would sound cool in that role.

    +1 on the Spark

    If you’d be interested in a pedal that can do more than just boost and willing to spend a little more money... smallsound/bigsound mini.
