BSM Treble Booster (re-issue, unless you're lucky and rich). It was used by Rory Gallagher, and quite ofthen with an AC-30, so you know it'll sound AWESOME.
Gear:

Guitars: Ibanez SV5470F, Ibanez Xpt700, Fender MIM Standard Stratocaster ('04-'05), Jackson Ps-2
Ashton AG200,
Amps: ENGL E530, Bugera 6262-212,
FX: TC Electronics G-major 2, Behringer EQ700, Morley Volume / Wah

Whichever one Brian May used, which I believe was a Rangemaster, but I've been wrong before. If tight for cash I'm sure the little EHX one would work fine.

I read in an interview with BM that he actually asked Rory Gallaher once, "How the hell do you get your sound", and Rory replied: "BSM treble boost and Vox Ac-30", and according to the article, May started using the same set-up a lot.

I have a EHX screaming bird. I doubt it'd work very well with an AC30. It's quite an extreme treble boost. It could work fairly well for the "non top boost" channel on an AC30, but it might sound a bit thin and nasal still, especially on the low strings. I've only found one amp that it doesn't sound nasal with and that's my HH electronic. It is of limited use, and not particularly good quality either - i do have a good use for it (only just) and i'm glad to have it, but i wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Unless of course mine's just a trashy one and they actually are meant to sound better than that?
Rig Winter 2017:

Shure SM57 mic in front of the amp

A Rangemaster clone would be good E.g. JMI Treble Booster - http://www.jmiamplification.com/

Or if you're handy with a soldering Iron, you could always build a rangemaster, quite an easy build.

Sums up whisky perfectly
