There are lots, stompboxes are very cool and cheap.
You just can't go wrong with the Behringer MIC200.
If you have a bit more to spend the Golden Age Project Pre-73 MK2 could be an option.
Blackstar has some nice pedals.
In this price range there are about 1000 options to choose from, so get to the store and try them out for yourself.
But you could also use stuff you already have at home. Try overdriving your mixingdesk.
