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!

In regards to the Truetone 1 Spot Pro CS12 I am not sure where to start. This totally silent, 12 isolated output PSU just destroys (in terms of quality and usability) all of the many previous true multi line out isolated power supplies that I have owned. This includes ALL of the old technology Voodoo Lab Pedal Power Plus/Pedal Power 2 series PSUs that I used to use exclusively to run my many boards.
Every single power requirement you can throw at this PSU, it will fulfill your needs, and then leave additional options left over. For example, say because of pedal placement, you need to use one of the many 9V 100mA outputs for a pedal however, your pedal requires at least 300mA. The way that this PSU works is the 100mA output will supply the full 300mA, should the pedal actually require it. This is due to this PSU being a true switching power supply. As long as the total amount of your plugged in pedals do not require more than 3000mA it WILL properly power all of your pedals. This by the way, WILL NOT happen on the outdated Voodoo Labs PSUs, or especially the cheapo no name power blocks that are everywhere on Amazon for 40 dollars or less.
I could go on and on about this PSU but I won’t. In a nutshell, it doesn’t matter if your pedals are 9V, 12V, 18V, Center Negative, Positive, or even 9Vac, this PSU will power your pedals up to 3000mA. I also own the CS7 which is equally fantastic, however the total output of the CS7 is 1900mA. This brings me to my final point. If you have a very large pedal board, with more pedals that any human being should own (except me Ha-ha), then I would recommend you purchase two CS7 PSUs, placing one under each side of the back of your (very large) pedal board. This will also provide a slightly larger amount of power, and allow the user to have adequate power lines to reach every pedal on the large board easily. For anyone else, this is a one and done PSU.
I want to also mention that Truetone as a company goes above and beyond any other pedal power company I have dealt with. My 2nd CS12 PSU came with one of the DC18 457mm white lines unusable (I’m sure it was an isolated issue, no pun intended). All it took was an e-mail, and I got an apology, and a replacement cable at my house 2 days later. I will never purchase another brand power supply again!
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 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.
