Cioks Big JohnPublished on 12/20/11 at 22:00
For years, people were powering their pedals and pedal boards with batteries or an adaptor and daisy chains. This can cause all sorts of issues. You need a quality power supply for your board/pedals and the Cioks are pretty much the standard. What's important is the fact that the outputs are isolated, so you will never get buzz/hum from having different polarity pedals etc. It also allows you to combine outputs to get either a higher voltage (18v) or more power (more mAs) if you need that. Furthermore, there are 2 outputs that have little dipswitches on the bottom that will get you more options. These also have a sag-control. This allows you to mimic a dying battery.

For years, people were powering their pedals and pedal boards with batteries or an adaptor and daisy chains. This can cause all sorts of issues. You need a quality power supply for your board/pedals and the Cioks are pretty much the standard. What's important is the fact that the outputs are isolated, so you will never get buzz/hum from having different polarity pedals etc. It also allows you to combine outputs to get either a higher voltage (18v) or more power (more mAs) if you need that. Furthermore, there are 2 outputs that have little dipswitches on the bottom that will get you more options. These also have a sag-control. This allows you to mimic a dying battery. This might sound as voodoo but some pedals sound vastly different if a battery is no longer putting out the full 9v. The sag-control lets you set this and trust me, it works flawlessly. With the dip-switches, you can also set these 2 outputs for 12v, some Boss pedals need that.

I’ve been using my pedal power for a long time and never had an issue with it, it’s still going strong. I’m not using it on a board at the moment but keep it at home for quick pedal testing etc. I have output #8 set up with the sag control and that works nicely with fuzz pedals, you really should give it a try and see if you notice a difference. It’s not as obvious with every pedal but fuzz-pedals in particular can benefit from this.

Like all Cioks products, build quality is spot on. It comes with a number of cables and you can order more from Cioks. It even has a 220v output so you can plug another adaptor into it if you need a special power. It only does 9v or 12v DC which is fine for most pedals, if you need 9v AC or other outputs, Voodoo Lab now has a bunch of other power units.

No opinion on this diet but for those who do not want to crack their savings plan in a power read on.
After complete information on the Big John Ciok, Power over Voodoo Vibe, the full tank T-Rex, DC brick and other Dunlop Power Brick Artec, I bought a Harley Benton powerplant (Thomann mark).
I just got it and judge for yourself:
-8 9v outputs
-2 Outputs 12V DC 1AC + 1
-A Light switch
-A Blue LED indicator to say that it works
-A Removable plug type PC industry with earth
-And ... All connection cables !!!!
All for 39 euros Thomann !!!

I plugged in and everything is nickel, no background noise, blast or otherwise.
Well, as we said in ERAM, it would be crazy to spend more !!!
39 euros is hardly more than a UNIQUE Power Ibanez or Dunlop !!!
For life, is to wait, I can not say anything for now but frankly j'vois when the price of Voodoo, I tell myself that some do not care their pockets!

The major difference lies in the fact that the voodoo lab has isolated outputs them, and some other functions (stack simulation use - passing one or more outputs 12v or 15v .. . just made a small difference ngligeable not for the person who does not use that in 9v pedals).
The isolated outputs can in some cases provide a solution buzz of a ground loop (pr post effects and amp), or allow using spciaux cables to accumulate voltage or amperage multiple outputs. That rating and more significantly more expensive the realization and...…

That rating and more significantly more expensive the realization and necessarily takes a little more room in the box too.
In short, rather than making comparisons between two different things, it is better just to judge what is just value. I possde accuracy of all I do neither one of these power supplies, but I find these unhelpful comparisons.

I use since 2006, it has saved me a lot of batteries!
A seller had advised me at the time, I knew nothing about the importance of having a good power supply isolated and all, but now I'm glad I listened!
For 7 pedals, as they do not have a consumption off standard 600 mA are ample. The majority of pedals consume MUCH less than 100 mA each.
It is very convenient to buy cords alims bsoins as in my case, boss dude, mini jack (for a Big Muff U.S.), 9v battery and adapter (for a black russian big muff 2002). For battery 9v adapter, it works niquel, the quality of the power supply (each output is isolated) can not have the buzz that many people spoke sue the Russian Big Muff mains due to...…

For battery 9v adapter, it works niquel, the quality of the power supply (each output is isolated) can not have the buzz that many people spoke sue the Russian Big Muff mains due to their polarity reversed.
I therefore conclude that this case SUP is very convenient as versatile and should be a majority of guitarists with no pedals which consumes less egg (albeit with a single pedal consuming 200 mA, it is pass, do the math: http://stinkfoot.se/power-list)
