Positive ground fuzz - edufy me - CTN - 05-15-2015

So if i were to get a fuzz and it was all old school positive ground germanium and if i were using a standard negative ground daisy chain power supply for all my power needs, i can just use a reverse polarity attachment for the power supply and everything would work fine, correct?

I don't need to have an isolated ground or anything right?

Sometimes.

That's pretty much the best answer I can give this early.

Hein?

Reversing the polarity will work on most fuzz boxes.

However, not all transistor compliments can be daisy chained without adverse effects (constant squeeling, damage, etc).

What are you thinking of going with?

bonamassa mini fuzz face.

You should be fine.

Of course, since Bonermassage is a pedant, he may have had Dunlop use some "holy grail" transistor set that won't function properly because of "Tone, man."

I'd shoot them an email. I think it'll work, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

lol some obscure NOS russian germaniums.

Realistically, you want to run a fuzz face on a battery anyway.

An old-fashioned cheapie battery.

What is the point of having a pedalboard with a power supply if I'm using batteries?
