what would work with plexi style amp better than the hotcake?

I have an Ugly 18 head I'm using a little right now. I have a Crowther Hotcake and a CMATMODS Signa Comp-Drive od pedals. The CMATMODS works pretty good but the Hotcake seems to make my amp sound very buzzy. Sounds ok with single coils but not with humbuckers. Whats a good drive pedal to try in front of a plexi 18 style amp? Will need some gain but nothing fizzy, think more Warren Haynesish or maybe some of the sweeter Slash stuff. Thanks.

Changed to way I configured the Hotcake ran the volume higher and gain lower and changed the order put CMATMODS in front and Hotcake after and this works much better! What I have realized is nothing and I mean NOTHING that I've found sounds as good as simply cranking the amp all the way up with no pedals. Wish I could get the tone of this amp maxed out at a lower volume level. Isn't that always how it goes though?
