There's nothing about voltage mentioned on the manufacturers website that I could see,
but the ICs can take it so as long as you've used appropriately rated capacitors then it's
always worth a try. This is one of the reasons I really recommend people build a charge
pumpintoasmallstandaloneboxwithjusta9Vand18VoutDCsocket.Itmeansyoucan
put it in line with any effect just to see what you think. You'll never damage anything as
longasyouchecktheICandcapratings.
This is a modded Dyna Comp too, just like the Keeley so they will definitely have
similaritiesevenwiththeirrespectivemods.
