More toys, more GAS. This time from Jule Amps is the new Pedal sized preamp called Simone, plus a matching 500W Poweramp.

I have Simone on order so, if you’re wondering, you’ll be able to play with one locally before committing. It’ll probably be after Xmas before it gets here though. I got on the list a bit late.

Sweet. I’m liking the smaller form factor cf Monique rack.

Did you order the power amp too, Blaine?

No just the preamp. I dare say the amp is fine but I just don't need another amp.

What a very strange statement, Blaine ;) .

Hope things are well.

^ yeah you’re right and I knew someone would pick that up but the MOF has raised her eyebrows as it is.

And yes I’m well, thanks for asking. Not enough shop time unfortunately.

@ Benhill1982

I was wondering whether you’d be on the list. Two in Victoria, once again leading the way.

19v laptop supply for the pre does not inspire me, another low voltage starved plate tube design. I wonder if Monique runs a real voltage for it's tube's.

They’re the mini tubes and he’s got them at 130v. Not too shabby.

So as not to confuse. Simone has the 130v and the 6AK5 mini tubes.

Not sure what plate voltage Monique runs but given mines 240vac and full sized valves I don’t imagine it’s short changed.

I'm on the waiting list. Though at the moment I'm on the fence as to whether I pull the trigger.

It sounds petty, but the large height formfactor, the laptop-style charger and the button location (top feels cramped) all count against it. I want (and know) it'll likely be better than a Noble, but having A/B'd a Noble and a Monique, the difference between them is like...5% and they're both amazing.

Like, these aren't criticisms to Jule's design, it's bloody genius, and is priced really well, but I'm not sure it meets my needs.

^ and that’s the problem when you play in the high end of the market. A small “improvement” tends to cost more. Many times we’ve sat around GTG’s and commentated on whether the step increase is worth it. For me it’s been a journey I’ve been privileged to travel but in this case it’s a sure thing and I will be getting one. I was thinking about building a power supply into the WJ cab so there’s less mess to deal with.
