Specs

Power and Ohm

Input impedance
5.1 meg.
Line Out impedance
10k. Line Out Level is up to +19db in Simone.
Power
The Simone power supply input jack center pin is 2.5mm in diameter. The reason for this 2.5mm is to make it impossible (without a hammer) to stick a standard pedal power supply (negative 9 volts on a 2.1mm center pin) into Simone. There is also reverse voltage protection built into Simone to take care of the situation where a replacement power supply may have the right 2.5mm center pin, but the center is negative

Sense
The Sense knob gives us almost a 4db gain shift on the bottom frequencies. This also gives us a variable input attack. It does not affect the high end. The Classic Monique Sensitivity was a single knob that did the Sensitivity with the sweep of the knob, and the Boost was the push/pull feature. In Simone, the gain Boost has been separated and moved to the Boost footswitch and the Sensitivity is in the "Sense" knob.
Drive
The Simone is variable from about +2db to almost +20db. The Drive takes advantage of a complete tube/valve by itself. The Simone Drive can add considerable gain that the Monique could not.
