Introduction
Welcome aboard!
Thanks for choosing the VOX DA10/DA20. To ensure a long
and trouble-free relationship with your new amp, please
read this manual carefully, use the amp as directed and
keep the manual for future reference.
Main features
•
•
•
•
•
4
The compact DA10/DA20 features ten or twenty
watts (10W/20W) producing stellar tones inherited
from the VOX Valvetronix series (AD15VT, AD30VT,
AD50VT, AD100VT).
The amplifier can be powered by six C alkaline batteries. This portability feature enables you to play
anywhere. When powered by batteries, the amplifier
outputs a maximum of 5 watts, and features up to 25
hours of play time (at the output wattage of 0.5W).
Inputs include an AUX IN jack, for connecting an external audio device (CD, MP3 player, etc.), and a
MIC INPUT jack, to which you can connect a microphone. You can play along with recorded music or
accompany your vocals on guitar.
The TAP button enables you to easily set the flanger
speed or delay time in sync with the tempo.
The amplifier provides eleven distinctive sound
styles that can be used in various musical genres.
•
•
Eleven high-quality effects are built in and seven are
multi effects that let you use two effects simultaneously plus Noise Reduction.
The power select switch lets you adjust the output
wattage of the power amp. This means that even
when the master volume is turned up to the max to
drive the power amp, you can lower the volume without losing any tone or feel.
Setup
Installing Batteries
Please refer to the illustrations in the section entitled “The
Guitarist’s Guided Panel Tour” (page 7).
1. Turn the MASTER volume on the amp all the way
down.

Creating Your Own Program and
Adjusting the Noise Reduction
This section explains how to create your own program, including how to adjust effect parameters and the noise reduction setting.
As you’ll hear, selecting a different effect type by using the
EFFECTS selector switch will automatically adjust the EDIT
2 and EDIT 3 parameter values to suit the selected effect
type.
In addition, selecting a different amp sound style by using
the STYLE selector switch will automatically set the noise
reduction to a value that suits the selected amp type. This
can be very convenient. However, you may sometimes want
to tweak an existing preset program to change a sound to
exactly what you have in mind. Alternatively, you may want
to adventurously explore the world of sound creation and
design by starting from scratch.
HINT: When you turn on the DA10/DA20, the EDIT 2, EDIT
3 and Noise Reduction parameters will be automatically set to the values appropriate to the current selection of the EFFECTS and STYLE selector switches.
10
Creating your own program
Let’s start from scratch.
1. Use the BYPASS button to bypass the effect. (The
BYPASS LED is lit.) If you want to use an effect, you
can add it at the end of this process.
2. Use the STYLE selector switch to select an amp
sound type.
HINT: For more details on STYLE options, refer to “Styles and
Effects” (page 12).
3. Adjust the top panel GAIN and TONE knobs.
4. Hold down the TAP button and turn the EDIT 1 knob
to adjust the noise reduction. This setting is also
saved as part of your program. For details, refer to
“Adjusting the noise reduction” (page 11)
HINT: Adjust the noise reduction so that you don’t hear noise
when you’re not playing your guitar.
5. If you want to use an effect, press the BYPASS button to turn bypass off (the BYPASS LED goes dark).
6. Select an effect, and make adjustments. For example if you want to add delay, turn the EFFECT
selector to “DELAY.” If the selector is already set to
“DELAY,” you’ll have to turn it to a different effect and
then back to “DELAY.”
Use the TAP button or EDIT 1 knob to adjust the
delay time and delay level.
DELAY TIME:
DELAY LEVEL:
DELAY FEEDBACK:
Press the TAP button twice at the desired interval, or hold down the TAP
button and turn EDIT 1.
Turn EDIT 1 (without pressing any
button).
Turn EDIT 1 while holding down the
BYPASS button.
NOTE: When you select a different type of sound, the noise reduction setting is automatically configured to its initial
value to accommodate the selected amp sound Style.
3. If you want to use effects, press the BYPASS button
to make the BYPASS LED go dark and the effect(s)
will be heard.
HINT: For details on the effects, refer to “Styles and effects”
(page 12).
Adjusting the noise reduction
Here’s how to adjust the noise reduction
HINT: When you use a high-gain amp type such as “HIGAIN
1,” “HIGAIN 2” or “HIGAIN 3,” we recommend that
you use noise reduction.
1. Press the BYPASS button to make the BYPASS LED
light.
2. Hold down the TAP button and turn the EDIT 1 knob
to adjust the noise reduction sensitivity. Turning the
knob toward the right will produce greater noise reduction (less noise). If you turn the knob all the way
to the left, noise reduction will be off (more noise).
NOTE: Depending on the guitar you’re using, excessively high
noise reduction settings may cause notes to be cut off in
an unwanted manner!
11
Styles and effects
In this section we’re going to talk about the eleven styles and
effects.
STYLES
You know that there is a plethora of great sounding amps out
there, and that the quest for the ultimate sound can be endless. After countless hours of soul searching, earnest discussions (not to mention the occasional friendly argument!),
calls to tone-wise friends (some professional players, some
not ... but all blessed with great ears)—plus, of course, listening and playing—a top eleven list was finally drawn up. As
you’re about to discover, the ones we went with are not only
the cream of the crop but also offer up the widest possible
array of the greatest guitar tones known to humans—from
pristine clean to outrageous overdrive and all points in-between.
CLEAN 1
This style has a beautifully responsive, rounded lowend, delightfully transient mid-range attack and
sweet treble making it the perfect partner for singlecoil pickups. Strummed chords just ring out and blossom.
CLEAN 2
This style’s clean sound is very tight “n” twangy, with
a deep, taut, piano-like bass.
BLUES 1
This style is very responsive to picking dynamics and
guitar volume settings. Backing-off your guitar volume can produce a beautifully clean and full tone. It
also means that you can make notes or chords more
distorted or clean depending on how hard or soft you
pick.
BLUES 2
This style has a thick tone with second and third order harmonics that increase as the amp is cranked.
BLUES 3
This instantly recognisable signature tone produces
clean sounds that are rich and jangly with a smooth
yet detailed top end, and overdrives that have a glorious, throaty bark.
12
CRUNCH 1
This organic sounding style is dynamically rich and
warm, yet biting and distinct!
Rolling back your guitar’s volume results in a unique
and highly usable clean sound.
CRUNCH 2
This style has a fat, roaring sound with a distinctive,
cranium-crushing crunch.
Rolling back your guitar’s volume produces a bright,
clean sound that’s perfect for chord work and will cut
through any mix.
HIGAIN 3
This is capable of a powerful, heavily saturated
sound that combines an open low-end with compressed mids and highs.
The result is a tone that remains focused and well
defined at even the most extreme gain settings.
DRIVE
This style has a spectacular overdriven sound that’s
perfect for sax-like, legato soloing. With its GAIN
control wide-open, it produces a stunning sustain
which is very smooth and soulful.
HIGAIN 1
This style’s toneful, high gain punch and girth results
in a highly aggressive, tone-breathing monster capable of mondo-gain while retaining individual note
definition.
HIGAIN 2
The deep, loose low-end, some-what “fizzy” top and
monstrous gain will make this style a mainstay for
modern, players who tune low.
At low GAIN settings, this produces a distinctive,
bright clean sound bolstered by rich, upper harmonics that add fullness and dimension.
13
Effects
The DA10/DA20 provides eleven of the most popular effects
(some effects actually combine two effects). You can adjust
the SPEED parameter of modulation effects or the TIME parameter of delay/reverb effects simply by pressing the TAP
switch twice. In addition to using the EDIT 1 knob to adjust
the most important parameters, you can make more detailed adjustments by holding down the TAP button or BYPASS button while turning the EDIT 1 knob.
14
NOTE: In order to adjust the effect parameters, Effect Bypass
must be off (BYPASS LED dark). If you hold down the
TAP switch and turn the EDIT 1 knob when bypass is
on (BYPASS LED lit), you’ll be adjusting the noise reduction - not the effect parameter.

Troubleshooting
1. The amp isn’t powering up when the STANDBY
switch is ON.
•
Have you installed batteries? Is the polarity correct?
Or, is the power cord connected to the rear panel of
the amp correctly?
Is the power cord plugged into an AC outlet?
Is the AC outlet switched on and working?
Is the power cord damaged?
4. There’s no sound heard from the LINE/PHONE
jack when you use it.
•
•
Check that the top panel MASTER volume isn’t
turned all the way down.
Make sure sound is coming from the amp.
2. There’s no sound coming from the amp
IMPORTANT NOTE: You’ll need to unplug your headphones
or cable from the LINE/PHONE jack to do this, since plugging something into this jack automatically mutes the
amp’s speakers. If there’s still no sound from the amp, go
to “There’s no sound coming from the amp.” If you do
hear sound, check the headphones or cable you are hooking up to this jack.
•
•
5. You can’t hear any effects.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Is your guitar turned up?
Are both ends of your guitar cable plugged into
where they should be?
Is your guitar cable working?
Are the top panel MASTER volume and GAIN knob
turned up?
Do you have headphones or anything else plugged
into the amp’s rear panel LINE/PHONE jack? If “yes,”
unplug!
3. The amp doesn’t seem very loud
•
•
•
•
•
Is your guitar turned up?
Is the top panel MASTER volume or GAIN knob
turned down low?
Is the POWER SELECT switch on the rear panel set
to a lower wattage?
Are you using batteries? If batteries are used, the
maximum output wattage of the amplifier is about 5W.
The batteries may be worn out.
•
•
Check that the BYPASS LED isn’t lit. If it is lit, the effect is bypassed. Press the BYPASS button to disengage it; the BYPASS LED will go off.
Is the EDIT 1 knob turned down too low? Adjust the
EDIT 1 knob.
6. You cannot hear the sound from a player connected to the rear panel AUX IN jack.
