Killer tone, big output, and you can play it anywhere.
Based on the popular DA5 Digital Amp, the DA20 combines higher power with the same great tone and go-anywhere portability of their smaller sibling. The DA20 Amp offers the option of running on battery power, so you can take the jam session literally anywhere!
Loaded with tone, at home or to go. The 20-Watt DA20 offers 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. Designed to take the show on the road, the DA20 amp can be cranked up at 5 Watts on battery power (6 x C batteries, not included).
Great sounding effects. The versatility of the Vox DA20 combo extends to a full complement of 11 digital effects. Featuring 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. And like the larger AD Series or "Valvetronix" amps, editing the effects parameters on the DA20 is simple.
Double up the tone. The DA20 is equipped with two VOX original design speakers. The DA20 packs a punch with 2 x 8 " speakers. With the VOX DA amplifiers, you don't have to sacrifice great tone for portability and ease of use!
Play it anywhere, any way! The DA20 can be powered by its AC adapter or by six C batteries. A built-in output power switch (MAX, 1.5W, 0.5W) helps extend battery life and lets you play at lower volume without losing any tone or feel.
That's not the only trick this tone machine has to offer. The DA20 amplifier comes equipped with an AUX IN that allows you to connect an external audio device such as a CD or MP3 player, plus a MIC INPUT to connect a microphone. Just plug your guitar in, and you can play and sing along with your favorite band or recording!
Great for practicing and recording. The Vox DA20 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 total privacy.
Great sounding. Great looking too. The DA20 is dressed in black vinyl with black chrome grilles or brown diamond grille cloth.

I wanted a portable amp with decent sound, so I went to GC. I thought I would get a Fender, but after trying a number of different amps, it came down to the DA20 and the SCXD. An employee suggested I take the two amps into what he called "the vault" so I could blast them to my heart's content. Playing them side by side, to my ears, the DA20 beat the SCXD hands down. Maybe it was the speaker, but the SCXD had no bottom end at all. While the DA20 isn't loaded with bass tones, it was deeper than the Fender. The effects, especially the Chorus, Rotary, and the Comp selections worked well with all the amp models. Clean 1 (Boutique), I think) has an acoustic quality. Clean 2 and Blues 1, supposedly Fender emulations, out-Fendered the Fender. Blues 2 (AC15), while not exact, does have an early Beatles sound, especially using a Telecaster.There is a Tone control, and at first I thought this would be a negative thing. Well, for me, it just added to the simplicity of this amp's operation. It has no foot switch option, so that's a point taken away. However, that point gets added back due to the fact that it works on 6 "C" cell batteries, increasing its portability.This amp was a good purchase.
Went in to buy the DA5 and came out with this instead. Super clean effects, simple controls and GREAT SOUND. Even rocks under battery power at the beach!!!! Plug it into the AC and you get a full 20 watts. If only it had a tuner built in...............
I had the privilege of using the smaller DA10 model from a friend for 2 months and then decided to purchase the larger DA20. Better tone!I always do a lot of research before I buy. Engineer by day, musician by night. Some Internet review(s) may mention that the DA10 has better tone. Don?t be fooled. I found the DA20 with larger speakers and cabinet offering a more robust, deeper tone. My ears were trained to the DA10, but the DA20 blew me away.Effects are great, and my settings are always the same switching back and forth. The dials are chicken head design with gain and master controls like analog. High gain settings are beautifully enhanced with my 535Q crybaby wah. I discovered that the clean channels are nice for acoustic, especially A/E nylon. There are also blues and crunch settings. But why did I get this amp out of a hundred different makes and models? It?s portable! I already had this amp outside at a Michigan bonfire party playing to back tracks. It takes C batteries? and with the low wattage switch on the back panel, I jammed for hours under the oak trees on DC power. When it is AC driven, it can melt the paint off my walls. Outstanding and Ingenious. Congratulations VOX.
Hey. I was at a local guitar store and I picked this thing up. First off, I'll tlel you about the pro's and con's of this amp.Pro'sLots of effects/ amp modelsGreat toneGets louder than you'd expectResponds very well to your picking style.You can set it to 5W 10W or 20WDurableCon'sDoesn't work well with distortion pedalsYou can't really hear the chorus too wellNot so good for metal, which is what I like to play, but very good for rock and things like thatIts kind of muddy. (buying the MXR 10 band eq for that, its amazing.)Doesn't have a bass treble or mid knob.The effects don't stay how you set them after you change to a different effect and back.There isn't a separate chanel for a clean setting so you have to change everything to get a good clean sound.Well thats all I'm going to describe. This amp is awesome for the money and way better than I thought. Even though I said all those cons, theres really nothing bad about this amp. It might be good to gig. I'm not sure. But its a quality amp.
I received this amplifier for christmas, and I really like it, the only drawback is that you have to change all the knobs to go from clean to dist., and ect. Also, there are lots of effects, but not all that much to change around with them. I would recommend this amp for people who have the patience to take the time to have to tweak the controls to go from clean to dist.
This is a nice little amp with tons of versatility. I've had it almost 6 months and no real complaints. It has a nice tone with the 2x8's and perfect for practice and recording. Blues/Classic rock tones are very smooth (what I really wanted it for). I did find the master tone control to be a bit limiting after awhile, but have since hooked it up to a Pod XT Live and have total control over the settings and it does everything well now. For a small bedroom setup this does everything you'll ever need. The battery power comes in handy when the house looses power or if you plan to play somewhere a power supply isn't available. As a side note that turned out to be a big plus is I plug my walkman and Ipod into it and it sounds better then my sony stereo cd player.
