    It says they are wired positive and require a special cable, or a power supply that has isolated outputs.

    then no. not familiar with that exact pedal but if it's germ and needs a special cable and/or isolated outputs it sounds like it's a center positive connection and you'll fry it with a Boss adapter which is center negative...

    edit: yeah the MJM 2-knob Brit is center positive. Correct "reverse polarity" cable is only ~$5, or you could cut a regular one and splice it back together switching the wires.

    Or just use a battery, fuzz does actually sound better with batteries IMHO.... :)
