One Spot- how good IS it?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Freaky Fender, Dec 10, 2004.


  1. Alrighty. I JUST made a pedal board a few seconds ago (I have to velcro the pedals down). I left a space open at the top for a power strip. Since it's christmas soon, I'm thinking about getting a power supply for all of them. I've really liked the One spot, does anyone have any tips for these?

    Not so much tips, but I can say I've never had any problems with them.

    Myself and my guitar player use it and never had any problems. I wish the lead was 5 feet longer but what can you do.
     

  4. Does it come with only one plug, or can you daisy chain the pedalboard?

    Comes with only one plug but you can buy the MC5 adapter to get 5 connections.

    As far as length goes, the current model is 10' long.

    You can see more info (and a compatibility chart) at:

    It comes with a 5 daisy chain plug for 24.99 from musicians "fiend".

    This is actually a pretty smokin' deal considering the OneSpot itself lists for $24.95 and the MC5 lists for $9.95.

    The OneSpot is the greatest adapter on the market IMO for the price! It's got a long cable, the daisy chain is plenty, and there are adapters available for any kind of pedal you have.

    Wouldn't recommend anything else.

    How does the Godlyke power adapter compare to the One Spot?
