The Trutone Pro CS12 is the first power brick to use 1 SPOT technology. With twelve fully isolated outputs and three different voltage options the Pro CS12 can provide power for almost any pedal - vintage or brand-spankin' new. And Truetone includes brackets for underside mounting on Pedaltrain boards and converter plugs with the Pro CS12 so you can get powered up straight out of the box!

Yes this offers 12 real isolated outputs unlike a lot of the 30-50 dollar "daisy chain in a box" offerings out there that falsely make the claim. There is a lot of false advertising out there, folks! Be careful!
This is what you need to know. First and foremost there aren't 'really' 12 outputs so you need to be confident in what you are trying to power. 2 of the outputs ALWAYS output at 18v. This is important to know because that can blow some pedals (OCD and Xotic USA users can rejoice, however). 4 of them are adjustable via dip switches to run at 12v or 9v. 1 of them, also via dip switch, will run anywhere between 4v - 9v. There is a small little dial you can use (once the dip switch is activated) to fine tune this, and it is absolutely awesome for analogue fuzz pedals (Big Muff Pi, for example, sounds best when a little starved of voltage). The final and 12th output is a 9v AC output. Almost no pedal can utilize this except for some older vintage models.
That said you're really only left with nine 9v outputs. That is still a lot! Dollar for dollar this is a better value than Voodoo Lab's offerings (also awesome, BTW).
It comes with all of the wires and adapters you would ever need, but if I were to make one criticism it doesn't give you enough 'long' wires and they could pretty much be longer in general. It comes with mounting brackets as well that'll work with a lot of different pedal board brands. All in all I highly recommend this power source.
I used Lava Cable Tightrope to custom cut my patch cables. I was concerned that I had spent so much time and money on this board and there would be noise issues when the build was done. Thankfully there were no problems whatsoever - hiss-free joy! I'm extremely happy with the end result of my pedal board build and attribute much of that to the 1 SPOT PRO CS12.
Like is generally asked of other musical tools (amps, guitars, pedals) - can you do it for less money? Of course you can if you are content with compromise somewhere in your purchase (remember the old saying - cheap, dependable, high-performance : PICK TWO).
The fact that I get to spend time playing and not chasing down noise in my rig makes the CS12 worth the asking price to me.
I demand an awful lot of my power supplies. I'm running anywhere between 10 and 15 pedals at a time so I'm a power user.
This brick powers them all and hasn't hiccuped yet.
Now I generally only draw through about 5 or 6 pedals at any given time, but the fact that you can pull over 3 Amps through this thing is nothing short of astounding.
You would need an awful lot of digital pedals to draw this one down.
I'll take this over the VoodooLab power supply any day.
More outputs, more flexibility, more available power, no noise.
You really can't beat it.
