Heavy Duty

I use 3 or 4 pedals in my guitar set-up including a vintage analog delay which needs 18v and a couple of old Boss pedals which want 12v. So I was looking for a relatively compact but flexible power supply to build a pedal board around.

I shopped around quite a bit and settled on the Cioks partly because it is completely self contained. Kettle lead into the unit and done. I could not believe how many of he competitor products needed an external power supply to power the power supply! Is it just me or is that screwed up?

When the unit arrived I was immediately surprised at how heavy it was. It's built like a tank and the design seems very roadworthy.

And it works like a dream! All my strange power requirements are taken care of and my signal chain sounds very clean. I have heard no hisses, hums, pops or anything else that could be power related.

One doubt I had about was that the standard 'barrel to barrel' cables could not be used on the Cioks. However the RCA plugs look very neat and seem to hold better in the unit than the barrel ones. Also there were way more cables supplied in the box than I will ever need.

I would recommend Cioks to anyone looking for a professional quality power supply for the road. A great product.

Excellent power source
JardaP, 10.02.2018
Lots of juice for my pedalboard. No noise, compact size, fits well underneath the Harley Benton Space Ship 40. Great product.

Great service provided by Thomann.

On the other hand, customer service of Cioks is terrible. Hey, Cioks guys. Why you don?t respond (potential) customer?s queries? Tried two times through your web page.

NOS for pedals
ardanoviz, 31.07.2018
I've tried several power supplies through the years. I generally work with huge pedalboards: the total current draw and the background noise have always been a problem.
The I discovered Cioks, I bought several of them and every issue has suddenly disappeared.
In particular, I use the Schizophrenic linked with a Cioks/Eventide Powerfactor 2 because I need up to 3.1 A of peak current.
The construction is extremely solid and sturdy and the RCA connectors are perfect (just a little more tricky if you need to solder your power cable by yourself, but nothing complicate...).
The fuse socket is easy accessible.
Led monitoring works perfectly and it's really useful.
Moreover, and most important, the outs are INDIVIDUALLY insulated: this is really important specially if you connect several pedals to a single out.
Go for it if you have some ground problems.

George W, 21.03.2015
very good little power supply, no noise at all and enough outputs and voltage variance with 9V, 12V and 18V. the current is plenty to power my pedal but it may struggle some power hungry pedals (max 200Ma out of any one output).
