VTX200SH
Three-Channel Guitar Amp Head with Stereo DSP
Congratulations!
You are now the proud owner of the Crate VTX200SH three-channel guitar amp
head with Stereo Digital Signal Processing (DSP). This rugged amplifier combines outstanding features with serious clean and distorted sounds. Dual DSP controls provide
15 “Must Have” effects and 15 Delay effects which can be combined for a wide variety
of sounds. The Tap/Save button allows you to manually set the tempo of many of the
effects and to save new DSP presets in the amplifier’s non-volatile memory. A separate Reverb control adds even more to the array of effects. Channel switching and
DSP may be controlled by means of a footswitch, which also allows access to two DSP
presets on each of the three channels. Stereo and Mono Effects Loops allow you to
connect additional effects for even greater flexibility. The electronic tuner (with a Mute
switch for silent tuning) lets you get tuned and stay in tune any time the amplifier is on.
Like all Crate products, your VTX200SH amplifier is designed by musicians, and
built using only the best components. Extensive testing confirms that this amplifier is
the absolute best it can be.
In order to get the most out of your new amplifier, we strongly suggest that you read
the information contained in this guide before you begin playing.
And thank you for choosing CRATE.

VTX200SH
Three-Channel Guitar Amp Head with Stereo DSP
Storing Your Own Presets:
Each channel of the VTX200SH has two factory assigned DSP presets, as shown on
pages 10 and 11. No matter what the settings of the DSP controls, the preset is recalled
when a channel is selected. You may change the DSP settings by rotating the DSP controls - these changes will remain active until a different channel is selected, but will not
be there for later use unless they are saved. To save a new DSP preset to a channel,
first make the desired DSP changes. Then press and hold the Tap/Save button for about
three seconds. The Tap/Save LED will flash through three quick sequences, indicating
the preset was saved. The new preset is stored for that channel and will remain in memory until a new preset is stored for that channel or the factory presets are restored.
We recommend making copies of page 14 of this guide for the purpose of writing down your own presets.

Restoring the Factory Presets:
The factory assigned DSP presets may be restored, erasing any changes you have
made. Turn the amplifier off. Press and hold the Tap/Save button as you turn the amplifier on. The Tap/Save LED will flash through two quick sequences, indicating the factory
presets have been restored.
More About the Tap/Save Button:
The Tap/Save button is used to set the tempo of an effect by simply tapping it in time
to the desired tempo. The time between the taps sets the timing of the effect.
The Effects and the Delays may each have a different tap speed. The default “target”
for the Tap/Save button is the Delay control. To select the Effects control as the tap button’s target, rotate the Effects control. The Tap/Save tempo function will automatically
revert back to the Delay control 16 seconds after the Effects control is rotated, or when
the tap speed was last changed for the Effects control.
NOTE: In most cases, it is usually more pleasing to the ear to set a slower tap speed for the HI effects and
a faster tap speed for the LO effects.

VTX200SH
Three-Channel Guitar Amp Head with Stereo DSP
Using the Footswitch:
The special Crate four-button footswitch supplied with the VTX200SH performs a
variety of functions. The footswitch allows remote channel selection, remote Tap/Save
for each channel, and allows access to an additional DSP preset for each channel of
the amplifier. Use only the supplied Crate four-button momentary footswitch with the
VTX200SH. A standard 5-wire midi cable (supplied) may be used to connect the
footswitch to the amplifier.
When the footswitch is connected
to the amplifier, the first tap of buttons 1 - 3 select the corresponding
channel. Once a channel is selected,
consequent taps of the same button
produce the same results as tapping
the front panel Tap/Save button – you
can use the footswitch to store presets and set the tempo of an effect.
(See page 8.)
VTX200SH REAR PANEL
The “original” DSP presets are
active for each channel when the #4
footswitch LED is illuminated. These
are referred to as “DSP Bank ‘A’.”
When the #4 button is switched and
the LED is off, a second DSP preset
may be stored and recalled for each
channel - “DSP Bank ‘B’.”

NOTE: DSP Bank “B” presets are only accessible
