What's your favourite overdrive/boost?

What's your favourite overdrive/boost?
Hi all,  
Although some might consider this blasphemy, I'm thinking about buying or building a boost or overdrive for my 5E3.  
What sort of pedal would best enhance the 5E3's already stellar tone of the Deluxe (while tightening up the bottom end)? I'm kinda partial to a nice, singing Brian May-ish lead sound.  
My main guitar is a DeArmond Starfire Special, my 5E3 sports a Weber Blue Dog, and I occasionally swap out the 6V6s for EL84s (via Yellowjackets).
