Well, after further looking at I think I'm going to stick with the blues driver. Sometimes I don't even bother and just use my blues Jr amp's natural over-drive by cranking the volume up but keeping the master volume low and putting it on the "fat" setting. Sometimes that's all I need for a nice blues over-drive.

I've got a number of overdrives and such around here, but I rarely use anything between my guitar and amp except a cable.

If you are looking for something to sound AMAZING, and even better and more versatile than a tube screamer, try out

Barber Burn Unit.

It really is the best pedal I have ever owned, and coupled with some sweet delay, really produces such a sweet overdrive that will soothe your ears and make you feel as if you were in tone heaven.

The pedal I love the most out of my collection is the Boss BD-2 modded by Robert Keeley. Absolutely wonderful tones! It's a tad pricey, but worth every penny in my humble opinion.

On the cheap,
the Behringer TO800, or the Digitech BadMonkey (i have one) are very hard to beat.

I'm still lovin' my Arion Tubulator. Combined with an EVJr its a sweet setup.
