OVERVIEW

Small size - giant tone.

The VOX DA15 Digital Guitar Amp is both affordable and portable. Don't let the small size fool you. This rugged little beast boasts some killer bells and whistles, such as 11 distinctive sound styles ranging from clean to high gain, 11 great-sounding digital effects,
a knob-based control panel that's really easy to use plus a whole lot more.

The DA15 amp combines portability and versatility. Today's guitarist wants a palette of guitar tones to choose from and this amp
delivers. Whether it's a clean, shimmering guitar sound, raucous crunch, or full-tilt gain with outrageous overdrive, the DA15 amp
has it all.

The versatility extends to a full complement of 11 digital effects. The DA15 features auto-wah, chorus + delay, chorus + reverb,
compressor, compressor + chorus, compressor + phaser, delay, flanger + reverb, reverb, rotary + reverb, and tremolo + reverb.
There's also a Tap Button that makes it easy to set the delay time or modulation speed.

The DA15 delivers a surprising amount of tonal control. Program and tweak your own combination of amp and effects settings and
then save them using the amp's Channel Select mode. Two user program locations offer instant access to your favorite sounds. With
Manual mode (where you hear exactly what the knob settings indicate) you have instant access to three different sounds.

Plug-in the optional VFS2 dual footswitch and switch between the two user programs or bypass the effects. Alternatively, you can
choose to have the foot-switch activate Manual mode instead of Effect Bypass, which gives you, hands free switching among three
different sounds: the two user programs and the manual setting.

Great for practicing and recording, the Vox DA15 amp is equipped with a combination Line/Headphone output so you can connect
to a headphone, mixer, or recorder. The amps' emulated line out provides a full, realistic sound whether you're recording direct or
listening through headphones. And since plugging into the jack defeats the speaker output, you can practice when you want, where
you want, and as loud as you want in complete privacy.

I bought this thinking it was one of the Valvetronix amps while doing some shopping (it was at a Hastings bookstore, in a box), so it was a mistake that I ended up with this particular model. Anyway, I checked it out and it's not a bad little amp.I am a tube amp lover and have owned Silvertone, Fender, Crate, Marshall, Peavey amps and even a sweet Univox PA head I used for guitar; I've been playing 20 years, just so you know my background. I thought I might do some PC based recording but alas, I sold all my gear except my guitar last year, and I thought this would be just the thing to stick on my desk next to the PC. Well, it sounds decent. At this price range, it's nice to have a few amp models to choose from. The default settings have way too much effects on them I think, but you can remedy that with the twist of a knob.I like that it stores two presets (wish it would let you store more), but there's way more editing than I want to worry about to tweak everything. I prefer to plug in and play with a basic solid tone that I can re-amp or just record straight and use VST instruments on my PC for the effects and amp modeling. The DA15 does have some really nice clean and light crunch tones.I've put mine up for sale after having it for just one night, but not because it is in anyway bad, it just doesn't have the tube pre like the Valvetronix models and I need to at least have a tube somewhere in my chain or I will not rest easy. And, after considering the tweaking and buttons...it just helped me decide that I'm going to order a small tube amp with as few knobs as possible. I want to go minimalist, and this amp is more for gearhead/knob tweaker types.The distortions are really decent by the way. They won't make a crappy guitar sound any better, but they aren't harsh like a lot of distortion found on practice amps. For some classic rock, punk and blues tones, it will do the job. Metalheads, you aren't going to feel your Cannibal Corpse, In Flames and Cradle of Filth covers are getting their due respect, but your Corrosion of Conformity and old school Exodus jamming will sound pretty good for an amp this small.It gets nice and loud too. You won't be disappointed if you like to crank it up in your living room...yet your pictures won't fall off the wall. Sounds good with headphones too thanks to that emulated speaker feature on the line out. All of that and it still manges to fake a good SRV tone as well when using the neck pickup on my 83 set-neck Yamaha SSC 500, which has blade single coils. Good value and should make lots of bedroom jammers happy.

This Is my Brother`s current Amp. Like his other one(marshall 15dfx) I HATE IT. It doesnt have a clean channel and Sounds like The 70s. I`m not a fan of the early 70s but hear me out on this. For starters this amp "models" are terrible. You think you are saving money but your not because you can't get a half way descent sound out of it. The tone is Way too deep no matter how much you tweak the EQ. It doesnt have The Gain I want nor is it loud enough. I Dont like how the input jack is on the top of the amp. It bends the cord and he`s been though two already. The only thing I will give this amp is it has some quality. Meaning it was made durable. I STILL recommend getting the fender 25r. Its Cheaper,louder,sounds better.

When the grill on the front shined light on my eye, i had to try this babe out. as i did, DANG. 2 channels, a present control, 11 tones and efects!?!?!?!?! after i tried tis out, i knew tis as the amp i wanted so i got it one month later and i had it for 9 months now and it never dissapoints me. but in my opinion, for the best ACDC sound, hook this up to a clean amp(i used roland) turn it to Crunch 2, and bamm!! the best sound for their songs like highway to hell and hells bells. all in all, great amp. sturdy, and hasnt dissapointed me yet except the fact that it brought my hearing down. buy this beast, it wont dissapoint you

great practice amp!

By VintageModernMan

from Los Angeles

I just got this sucker for christmas today and all I have to say is wow. The effects and modeling are great. I normally use tube amps, but you can't seem to find any good tube practice rigs. I have always loved VOX stuff, already owning a wah pedal, but this amp is really great for noodling around and quiet practice, but this thing really can get LOUD. At first, the electronics were kind of confuzing (i.e. tweaking the effects), but after a while, you will know what you are doing.

Very impressed

By Rocker123

from Halifax NS

I know I gave this amp a high score, and thats really comparing it to other amps in its category. This amp is loaded with effects and amp models, which sound very close to the higher end valvetronix amps. The speaker is excellent, it can compete with 30 and 50 watters no problem. The reason it didn't get a perfect score is because of some of the strange choices made. 1. it doesnt have an aux in which is blasphemy for a practice amp (plus every other vox amp in this range has one) and the way the effects are pre-combined limits the otherwise amazing tonal range. Great job vox.

Great Little VOX!

By Big G-z0JrT

from Florida

First off, I love VOX amps. I've owned three over the years (as well as Fender, Marshall, Mesa, etc), and the quality and that Vox sound just can't be matched. With this little giant, what you get for the money is insane! Forget that it's a modeling amp - just that great clean Vox tone alone is worth the price! Now, add in the effects, and the deal becomes so good, you shouldn't pass it by! I leave the Style knob set on Clean, and use the Effects knob to get what I want. The effects are pretty darn good! The only pedals I use ahead of the amp are a Cry Baby Wah and a Boss Distortion. That's all I need with the onboard effects. Reverb is excellent, as are flange/reverb and chorus/reverb. This Vox is SUCH a steal! I looked for a modeling amp and tried 3 or 4, and this little Vox killed them all! Don't let that 15 w x 8" speaker put you off - this amp plays plenty loud and clean at way less than max volume setting! THE best deal going! For the price, or even at twice the price, you can't get a better amp than this! A lot of fun, and great Vox sound! Check it out!

DA-15

By jamman dummy

from Honolulu, Hawaii

Ask me a question

I tend to disagree with others saying this amp is not a quality nor a well engineered amp. Perhaps spending some time with the manual would help.No Clean??? Try the Ac-30 setting, roll back the gain, volume all up, master at 9:00. You'll hear some clean. I have personally jammed and gigged this amp, miked, and it was stellar.I won't go into the whole inventory of gear I have like so many do, suffice it to say, I have much larger amps that don't do as much, this little jewel works, and well, if you are patient about learning it.Construction is apparently good quality. I don't like the removable power cord, nor the mount that moves in the chassis, but at it's price point it is well made.Cosmetically, I wish VOX would loose this industrial look and go all original livery. I have other VOX amps with the original classy livery that I love the look of so much better.I got mine and without so much as a read of the manual, did a solo 2 1/2 hour gig that same night and was well pleased with it's performance in front of around 75 people or so. I got compliments all evening as to the sound of the amp and everyone was curious how I got different sounds with no pedals..if you want a AC-30 or a stack, go get one, this will never satisfy you. But if you have been through all that gear and more and just don't care to wear out your back or pocket book any longer, heres a nice alternative.

Great practice amp for the money

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

The DA15 is what I use when I'm not home, and I even use it sometimes late at night. I like the headphone input, and the effects are all excellent. The chorus and reverb sound exactly like they should sound. The amp has a noise gate, and while that is nice, it does kill sustain and I end up using a TS9 Tubescreamer to compensate for that, which is no big deal because that pedal sounds nice on the second hi-gain setting and the overdrive setting. I got this amp to replace the Fender FM15 DSP I bought before it, and not only is it cheaper, but it sounds far better and is better quality.

An excellent value

By ryan00010

from Texas

Originally, I had bought and returned a Roland Cube amp and then happened on to the Vox DA-15. To me, it offers a wide range of good tones and is a great value. The "Crunch 2" channel sounds good for rock chord work, but seems to need a bit more gain to suit me. The "Hi Gain 1" channel is probably my favorite for hard rock/metal and has good individual note definition with chords and such, but I wish the low notes were a little tighter and more focused. However, it has plenty of gain and pinch harmonics seem to leap out of my Seymour Duncan-equipped Ibanez RG. The "Blues 3" channel is a good one as well as it produces gritty blues-rock sound with a nice growl. The effects are fairly high quality for such a small, inexpensive amp.

Vox DA15 15w 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp

By Les Pauler

from Houston, TX

This amp can do it all. It would be better if it didn't do it all poorly, though. There are two clean settings that you either have to choose between them being somewhat distorted or killing sustain. The three blues settings are pretty much the same thing. The two crunch settings sound like an AM radio. The first distortion sounds muffled and thin, the second sounds like a buzz saw, but is still my favourite, and the third sounds like the amp is inside a tin barrel. The overdrive sounds like the amp is underwater and I suppose I can hear how they tried to immitate tubes. Tried and failed miserably of corse. The effects are all poor quality and it says it has a noise gate, but mine MUST have been left out, because I get static and fuzz and every nasty sound imaginable including a high pitch squealy sound that slowly gets louder when I'm not playing and have the volume up past 9:00. Btw, after 9:00 the sound quality goes up a tiny bit, then back down, but with all the extra noise (you can hear the effects like flange and phase when you aren't even plugged in, and compression is just awful) it's not even worth it. Alright for practice because it's so portable and the sound can be molded pretty easily, but don't even think about doing a show with this.
