The Nano has an annoyingly loud fan.
If i ever list my gear in this space, it means we're back in 1998.

I have no experience with either the Z Vex or the THD, but I do have some experience with the Tiny Terror. But my choice would be the Victory RD-1 (or BD-1).
Like the Tiny Terror it won’t give you pristine cleans but rather ”cleanish” at that end of the spectrum. But the overdrive though ... To die for. Love it.

That is not exactly correct. Early ones do, and there is a fan kit that solves that for these units.

In fact, in my Nano thread you can see a step-by-step of how to do this.

You can also completely remove the fan, if you like, and nothing bad will happen to the amp. Zvex even supplies a grill that you can screw on to cover the fan hole.
