Took my Baja Tele in for a super set up by my friend and walked into this beauty. Apparently there is one for sale in Denmark Street for more money but it has odd knobs and hasn't had a full service. This one has been sent off for a full service and clean. It's solid state but I do like it.









Same as used by the Beatles http://www.voxshowroom.com/uk/amp/defiant1.html

I also liked the design, knob placemets and overall appearence is really cool. No idea about sound but not being tube doesn't mean anything bad for me before trying.

I impressed that it seems to be in near mint condition.

I nearly bought it for the retro looks alone, it comes with that original chrome trolley too.

Gab, I'm still too shy to play in the shop biggrin.gif

Here is a video from YT of someone with the same amp
