I like the Suhr Riot and MI Audio Megalith Delta for that kind of sound. Also, I built a pedal based on the OCD circuit but with an upgraded Burr Brown opamp, which gives it a flatter frequency response (more highs and lows instead of the OCD's mid-heavy signal) and cleaner gain.
which op-amp? I like the TS clone from General Guitar Gadgets with it's mod kit, it sounds similar to what you describe. One the mods is a choice between clippers or a lift for one set of clippers...I like that the best for just as you say, a cleaner gain (changing to a 1 meg drive pot helps too I think)...the mod kit comes with 3 op amps but I'd give the Burr Brown op amps a go, I mean it's a cheap enough mod
