TrueTone 1 Spot Pro CS12 Power Supply
Killer new power supply from the fine folks at TrueTone pedals. Some of you may know them as Visual Sound.
The power supply that is often seen on a lot of guitar players pedal boards is a pretty heavy unit and can only operate one one voltage setting. The one spot pro CS12 can run on any voltage around the world. This unit has more than enough power to run every single Strymon model at once! There's another power supply on the market that can do that and we sell it but it cost twice as much, is twice as heavy and needs a fan to keep it cool.
I can't recommend this unit enough! It comes with all the leads required for complex wiring operations, like postive centre connections for pedals such as the Fulltone Octafuzz, plus it has battery clip connectors for vintage pedal and the like.
It even comes with pedaltrain brackets to mount it it directly onto your board.
Here's a small amount of what TrueTone have to say about this power supply"
"1 SPOT Technology... what does that mean and why should I care? Technically, it's switching power supply technology, which is very different than what anyone has ever put inside a power brick. Normally, you would find just a big transformer and a handful of small electronic components inside a power brick... old tech that hasn't changed in decades and has a lot of limitations. We took the same switching power supply technology found in our famous 1 SPOT and scaled it up to make the 1 SPOT Pro models. With much more space to work with, we were able to completely eliminate noise, provide total electrical isolation between outputs, create multiple voltages, and still give you the ability to use it anywhere in the world.
A major benefit of using a switching power supply is that it can handle far more current (power being pulled out of it) than any transformer-based power supply. Although we had to put power rating labels on each output to satisfy certification agencies (yes, we actually certified these, unlike most companies), the outputs can generally handle far more than the label shows. For example, you can connect a 300mA pedal to a 200mA output, without causing any problems. With a transformer-based power supply, you can't get away with that. The important thing is to not exceed the total of all the labels. With a CS7, the output labels add up to 1900mA total. That means the total current draw of all your pedals should be less than 1900mA. That total current rating is roughly double the current load of the most common power brick, for a lot less money.
Another 1 SPOT Pro first. In the past, if you had a Line 6 or Digitech pedal that required 9VAC (not DC), you had to use their power supply and an extension cord or maybe a courtesy outlet on your power brick, if you could get to it. We put a 9VAC output right on the front panel of the CS12, so you can ditch the big wall-wart and keep things neat and simple. We did have to use a small toroidal transformer for this, as it's not really feasible to create AC voltage with a switching power supply, but that small toroid is dedicated to just that one output... completely isolated"
