I've been going down this same path over the last year or so. Mostly was using a DR and now I'm using a Vox style amp more. As others have said, the mid hump vs. non-mid hump distinction is probably your answer. Timmy is fantastic. It has the added benefit of being able to roll off extraneous bass to keep your OD tone solid in the low end. Very transparent. Reasonable cost. It's a great pedal. The Bluesbreaker design has no mid hump. The Morning Glory is probably the most popular model of this type. It's bright, so make sure you like that. But with a Vox and tele it might be a good combo. But if you want to try something that is more in the realm of the TS9, I recommend you try a Zendrive. It's the same circuit topology as a TS9, but stripped down to the bare essentials. It has the solid mids but doesn' t have the big mid hump of the TS9 because of the voice control. I love it. I like the Hot Cake. But if you go that way make sure you're not the type of guy who relies on the tone control a lot or you may be disappointed. The HC doesn't have a great tone control. It's just part of the design. Great basic sound, though, and does a cool heavier OD with the gain up. Just not as tweakable as some of the others in terms of tone control.
