          Boss OD3. I don't think it sounds particularly tubescreamer-ish, but someone could probably prove me wrong.

                      May want to hold off on that one. Don't get me wrong, I really like my old Distortion +, but it really only makes one sound. Not very flexible at all.

                        and of course ts-7

                        IMHO the boss overdrives don't sound
                        tubescreamerish- they sound boss overdrivish.

                        the mxr dist+ has nothing to do with a ts.
                        neither has the rat. it's a distortion, not an overdrive.

                        hope i could help..

                            He's looking for an OD that isn't like the tubescreamer, though...

                              no, sorry!
                              i think i got you wrong!
                              you wanted something different?
                              well, what exactly then?

                              a ts is an overdrive which is pretty neutral and works also
                              well as a clean boost. you won't find too many good sounding od's that aren't based on a tubescreamer.
                              exept boss' od-3 maybe.

                              you want a distortion? or a fuzz?
