I love this pedal as a clean boost, all that mid hump with no clipping cuts through the mix, but how could I get more volume on this great TS clone?

Make the clipping diodes switchable, then you can get more undistorted signal when they are switched off.

You can increase a little by increasing VR3 to 100k or 1M but if you want much more volume you have to implement one booster between C9 and VR3.
