      Try a Seymour Duncan SFX-03 (Twin Tube Classic).
      I have one, you can nail Santana's tone with it

        If you really want to sound like Santana, Keeley Modded Tubescreamer is what you need. Also, if you have a three way switch on your guitar, put it in the middle and roll off the tone knob of the guitar. Experiment with different pickup settings with one of the tone knobs almost off. That's called the "Woman Tone"

          is that the ts9 or ts-808?
          Dosn't santana just use one as a boost?
          are there any pedals that use cascading gain stages to get a real similar sound?
          thanks for replies so far

              I use a TS9 (modded), and the neck pickup with the tone rolled off.

                      The one pedal I always used was the SCOD.
                      LP neck pup, gain & contour maxed and volume about 1/3 up on the SCOD.

                          Here's a clip I did a few weeks ago, and I think it gets in the Santana ballpark. I used my Tom Anderson Hollow Drop Top on the neck position. I used a Keeley Modded TS-9 into my '66 Allen/Master Volume Bassman head Normal clean channel. Here's the link.
