    I've been thinking of going the BYOC route and building both an ESV Silicon and ESV Germanium Fuzz Face clone and possibly sticking them into the same enclosure. As I understand it, even if I build them to work with a Boss type AC adaptor, they can't be daisy chained with other "normal" effects.

    Is the same thing true for the new Dunlop minis? Or can they work in the same daisy chain with a typical Boss OD or chorus?

    Dunlop mini work with daisy chains.
    Read up on PNP and NPN transistors.

    You will likely find you enjoy the tone of your Ge fuzz with a carbon zinc battery no matter the polarity of the transistors.
    And since they really love to first in line, unplugging the input cable to conserve battery life is not a big deal even on a larger pedalboard.

    Thanks. Based on your response, I'm guessing that the Dunlop pedals are negative ground like most other modern pedals. Correct?
