Power supply: Godlyke v OneSpot v Big John etc?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by BassWombat, Jul 21, 2005.


  1. I'm finally getting around to sorting out power supply issues.

    Godlyke, OneSport and Cioks Big John get good wraps here that I've seen. A couple of questions though...

    1. Is there a difference between the Godlyke and the OneSpot?

    2. For those of you that have gone for a Brick/Big John/Pedal Power route, do you feel there's a significant advantage over the OneSpot style of approach?

    3. Finally, if I did go the option2 path, any feelings over VL Pedal Power versus Ciok Big John?

    FYI, I'll need to power 7 pedals (BDDI, unibass, chunkOOfunk, VL sparkle drive, prescription electronics experience, TU2 and demeter compulator)

    Thanks heaps

    (BTW, I emailed Paol Ciok about shipping to Australia and he got back to me immediately with friendly helpful advice - excellent customer relations.)

    I power 7 pedals with my 1 Spot (US$29.95 @ MF). IIRC it's rated to 1400mA. That's good for quite a few effects. I think those deluxe bricks include 18V outputs that's why they cost more.

    I like the Godlyke better than the OneSpot. It can handle more current than the OneSpot and comes with all the connectors.

    Me too... though I use the OneSpot cables with the Godlyke power supply as the plugs are spaced further apart and are right-angle. The Godlyke adapters also come in handy with a couple of pedals that take 1/8" inputs (Compulator and Dredgetone Bass Angler).

    I've got the Godlyke, I dig it and it treats me right.

    Uh... the One spot comes with all the connectors also. And they are both rated @ 1.7 Amps. :confused:

    I got the 1 spot powering the pedals in my sig. No complaints whatsoever.
