Looking for a second supply for my dirt board. I can't think of why you would want to go in a different direction given how the TruTone handles power.
Free range ethically treated hamster wheel power or gtfoPffff, if you aren’t getting your power from a small water mill outside your home you’re clearly hellbent on destroying the earth and don’t know what good tone is. Hydro power is the only power good enough for me tone.
I actually thought that was a proprietary thing with TruTone.
I've had all of the TruTones. I have the CS6 currently. I don't really need that much power up front. I might jus grab a second CS-6 and call it good.Trutone will allow you to draw the maximum power of the whole unit from one jack. Neither Cioks or Strymon do that. You’re right it is unique to them. I don’t know that it’s patented, but they’re the only ones with that capability right now. I prefer that approach, when/if I buy a bigger/better power supply it will be a trutone.
I think the cioks are physically smaller, but with so many power hungry pedals out there these days I would prefer the trutone.
My current CS6 powers a tuner, wah, 2 dirt pedals and an HX Stomp. Pretty powerful all things considered. The second power supply really would power another wah and 3/4 other dirt pedals that I add when I feel like it.I have a Voodoo Lab X8 which I bought last year to build a pedalboard. Worked great using a bunch of high draw pedals including an HX Stomp XL plus Strymon Iridium plus others.
I think it's a little lower profile than the Truetone CS7 but has more power than the CS6, which is why I bought it. Either that or it was in stock and the others weren't Can't recall.
Would be happy with any of them I bet, but the Voodoo Lab is still pretty dang good.
I have a couple of them. I am using one for the nux bumblee satellite dirt board and it's fine. Just not a finished vibe (not that I am ever finished). I could couple it with my $30 Decimator mini pedal I scored and get the same general effect I am desiring from an isolated power supplyWhile I am with you on the true tone, I'll be bold enough to suggest a one spot + daisy chain if all you're doin' is dirt and wah.
