    Don´t know who has seen that too - but i just sent them that mail:

    Hi there,

    just back from the Musikmesse i want to tell you that i got
    there an pink printpaper with your new powersupply and
    I HOPE that this just was an bad joke.
    That´s only scabrous and misogynistic ! Not more than just that!

    IF you really will produce that shit i will complete boycott CIOKS and
    every dealer who sell´s that in the future.

    with a shake of the head, Wilfried

    As much as I love the absurd I do think they went over the edge with this one. Maybe they did proper market research and decided their customer base will like it.

    I don't think that they are targeting the P&W market with that.... :shock

    Shock value marketing. Abercrombie and Fitch are the masters at it.

    That gives me an awesome idea for a new label! Who wants to road test it?

    Is this that much different than the Electro Harmonix Big Muff Pi?

    That's what I thought when I read it this morning -- thanks to dongrosh's rant I now know who CIOKS are and I didn't before.

    Seriously though, on the list of things to be outraged about, to be done about, this one ranks pretty darn low on mine. Like really near the bottom.

    I hadn't seen a picture of it before now. In poor taste for sure.

    I was thinking about making a pedal that had all the tone parameters referencing butt types. You could have one pot that ranged from petite to phat, one that went from smooth to hairy, one that was firm to sloppy; etc. I offended myself to the point of not doing it. :razz

    wow....speechless....I looked at a CIOKS power supply for my 3 eventide factor pedals a year ago. Very glad I went with Logsdon Audio to power my board. Logsdon Audio is a class outfit. CIOKS, well...not so much.
