    I think a Klon type pedal would work nicely here. Something like a JRAD Archer would be awesome, or even a Soul Food for a cheaper option. I also think a BD-2 would be ideal, it does compress more than you want at higher gains (gets fuzzy) but if you use it at lower gain with the volume up, I think it could do what you're looking for.

    I've got a 68 Custom Princeton Reverb. I'm using an EP Booster into a Timmy.

    Boss SD-1. It's clearer than a tube screamer and since the 68 Custom Princeton is a little darker and fatter than a normal Fender, the SD-1 works really nicely. And the thing is dirt cheap. Win win in my book

    I'd suggest pretty much any 808 type pedal. I love the EQD dunes. I love my JHS Moonshine but it's pretty bassy so I'd stay away from that one with an already bassy amp.

    Happy hunting!

    What are your settings on the '68? Can't you simply turn the bass down?

    DOD 250. It cuts bass as you turn it up, so no flab/fart.
