The Vox Defiant - Control Panel and Preamp Features

Looking at the control panel and features, it was obvious how much design influence Thomas Organ was exerting at JMI Vox in the UK. Just like its counterpart in America, the Royal Guardsman, the Defiant had a normal and brilliant channel, switchable reverb, tremolo, MRB, and distortion (fuzz tone). Even the control panel graphics and knobs looked like the American Vox amps.
Just like the American Vox Royal Guardsman, the Normal Channel on the Vox Defiant has Volume, Treble, and Bass controls, along with a Top Boost rocker switch.
Again mirroring the American Vox Royal Guardsman, the Brilliant channel on the Vox Defiant has Volume, Treble, and Bass controls, along with a Mid Boost (MRB) rocker switch.
The Tremolo controls are located on the left vertical portion of the control panel. Tremolo was in the Normal channel only.
Reverb was selectable between either chanel, again, just like the American Vox Royal Guardsman.
A three position rotary MRB selector switch and a distortion intensity control completes the controls on the Defiant.
Even the red "Mains" and green "Standby" indicator lamps were inspired by the US Vox amps.
