The CIOKS story begins in Denmark in November 1991
When Poul Ciok who still runs the company today turned 18 and formally founded the company. Having been a dedicated guitar player and an electronics enthusiast for years prior to this, Poul had trouble finding a proper way to power his growing pedal collection and this set him on the course we know today.
The first CIOKS product was the Baby with 5 standard 9V outlets. Along with the introduction of digital pedals in the market the demand for more power grew so in 1995 two new CIOKS power supplies with bigger current capabilities and 7 outlets each were launched.
The Big John had 9V outlets only, where the Double Jack also had 12V option. These three products almost became the standard power supplies for effect pedals in Denmark.
