    I know you can’t put a PNP pedal (older Ross distortion) on a daisy chain, but could you connect to chain using a 9v battery snap adapter or is that still a no-no?

    You can connect to daisy chain but you need to get the adapter with the center positive tip. One Spot makes one and Voodoo Labs PP come with them. I used to use one for my Fulltone Octafuzz. The 9v adapter should work too.

    I was under the impression even with the adapter below, you cannot chain with other "standard" NPN pedals...

    The pedal in question (Ross Distortion) uses this type of input I don’t think adaptor
    You posted will work -

    I don't see any reason that shouldn't work.

    Op... your battery clip solution should work just fine.

    Yes if it’s that type of plug then a center positive with that end will work. I did not realize what pedal it was. Find a center positive adapter with what ever type end you need and you’re good.
