i go back and forth between an ibanez ts9 and a bad monkey for this. I like the bad monkey better.
Gear : peavey wolfgang special, gibson les paul studio alpine white, mexican floyd rose strat,jet city 100h,jet city 4x12 cab, engl 1x12 (vin 30), engl 1x12 cab (k 85) ,weeping demon wah, bad monkey, ibanez ts9, tc corona chorus, hardwire delay, boss volume, tc polytune mini, cort acoustic, various line 6 stuff...
Never played much with a 900. Had an 800 for a while back in the day. I ended up preferring an original GuvNor into the 800 with 'just enough' dirt on the 800, then I'd kick the GuvNor for real dirt. I definitely preferred that to anything I could get out of the 800 by itself.
I basically dialed the amp and pedal so it sounded nice and crunchy with my guitar volume on about 7, then just rolled the volume up when I needed a boost.
Today, my main amp is basically a tweaked 18W Marshall and I like the Crunchbox or the Lovepedal Superlead in front of it, but I'm not going for super gainy tones... just a little boost and some thickening.

I don't need a "volume boost", I'm just looking for a pedal with huge volume increase to push the front end of the amp as hard as possible
Make yourself a BYOC FET Preamp. Does magic stuff, has tone controls so you can scoop the mids, boost the top or whatever. Has a theoretical 26 db boost, which on the front end can really kick an amp running clean into OD territory. Love mine working out front of my twin reverb.
