This isn't quite a copy in the traditional sense, but I still think it's worth mentioning.

So, there's a few pedals that purport to clone the old Ampeg SS and VH series. There's the PLXfx Spirytus Distortion and the S&K VHD which are almost spot-on clones of that amp's channel A, there's also the Amptweaker TightMetal which was developed by James Brown from that same design but adds a load of additional features that increase the design's versatility. Out of these three the PLXfx is the one with the most reasonable price tag, so if New York death metal/slam is your thing, get the PLX and save $100 or more.
