    The Vox DA5 is mafactured in Vietnam. Roland, Japan and China. Korg and Toneworks are part of the same parent company.

    My 3 Vox DA5's have a 1/4" phone jack microphone input. To use it with an XLR connector, I use a "Lil' Imp" impedence matching transformer.

    I also have two of the Roland Microcubes. They are nice amps for the ukulele. The DA5 allows you to adjust the effects parameters, has more power and a larger speaker. Ric

    So I went to GC with my coupon and a print out on hand.. they said that like for like. If I can find the black da5 for lower, they will honor it. So I was about to pick up the DA5 to pay and the DA10 cought my eyes.. When I looked at the price tag, it was.. $99.00.. WHOA. $40 cheaper than the DA5. When I asked the sales guy, he said that it was their last one and just wants to get rid of it.. I couldnt pass it up so I took it. $97 out the door with the 10% coupon..

    Looked exactly as the DA5 except its a 10W with 2 6.5 speakers.. Double the power for alot less money.. I think I got a good deal

    Call the police! Generem's a THIEF!!! That's a GREAT deal. The DA10 does very well with a guitar, too. It's 5 watts on battery power and 10 watts plugged in. You'll be able to do gigs with that puppy. I'm upset with you (you beat me to it!).

    The effects and adjustable parameters of the DA series make them another valuable tool for shaping your tone:

    AUTO WAH
    This models an auto-wah; a device that creates an
    automatic “wah” effect that varies with your picking
    dynamics (i.e., how hard or soft you hit the strings).
    EDIT 1 “SENS” Adjusts the sensitivity of the effect
    in response to the volume of your
    guitar.
    EDIT 2 “ATTACK” Adjusts the response speed of the
    auto wah.
    EDIT 3 “POLARITY” Adjusts the direction in which the
    effect operates.

    COMP
    Want to play a clean passage that needs to be nice,
    smooth, and even? Need a bit more sustain on a
    lead line? Then look no further; COMP is the effect
    for you. It’s modeled on a compressor pedal that is
    hugely popular due to the percussive clean sound it
    can produce—making it perfect for ’80s and ’90s pop
    and funk rhythm work. It can also add a singing,
    mellow, sustain to lead lines - clean or dirty.
    EDIT 1 “SENS” Adjusts the sensitivity of the compressor.
    Turning the knob toward the
    right will increase the amount of
    compression and sustain. If you turn
    the knob all the way to the left, the
    effect is OFF.
    EDIT 2 “ATTACK” Adjusts the strength of the attack.
    HINT: In the COMP+PHASER and COMP+CHORUS combination
    effects, the ATTACK parameter is already set
    to the optimal value.

    PHASER
    A model of a much respected and popular analogue
    phaser, housed in a banana yellow box!
    TAP “SPEED” Sets the modulation speed in a
    range of 0.1...10 [Hz].
    EDIT 2 “SPEED” This lets you use the knob to make
    fine adjustments to the parameter.
    EDIT 3 “RESONANCE” Adjusts the amount of resonance.

    CHORUS
    This models the rich sound of an analog chorus unit.
    TAP “SPEED” Sets the modulation speed in a
    range of 0.1...10 [Hz].
    EDIT 2 “SPEED” This lets you use the knob to make
    fine adjustments to the parameter.
    EDIT 3 “MIX” Adjusts the mix amount of the effect.
    HINT: In the CHORUS+DELAY combination effect, the
    SPEED parameter is already set to the optimal value.

    FLANGER
    A model of a truly classic flanger that “unchained” a
    highly influential modern guitarist who many hail as
    the “godfather of two-handed tapping.”
    TAP “SPEED” Sets the modulation speed in a
    range of 0.1...10 [Hz].
    EDIT 2 “SPEED” This lets you use the knob to make
    fine adjustments to the parameter.
    EDIT 3 “RESONANCE” Adjusts the amount of resonance.

    TREMOLO
    This effect is based on the highly acclaimed tremolo
    circuit found in some guitar amps.
    TAP “SPEED” Sets the tremolo speed in a range
    of 2.5...10 [Hz].
    EDIT 2 “SPEED” This lets you use the knob to make
    fine adjustments to the parameter.
    EDIT 3 “DEPTH” Adjusts the tremolo depth.

    ROTARY
    This models a rotary speaker.
    TAP “SPEED” Sets the rotational speed of the
    speaker in a range of 0.8...10 [Hz].
    EDIT 2 “SPEED” This lets you use the knob to make
    fine adjustments to the parameter.
    EDIT 3 “SENS” By adjusting this parameter you can
    make the rotational speed change
    automatically in response to the volume
    of your guitar. If you use this
    function, set the SPEED to a slow
    setting.

    DELAY
    This is a model of one of the most respected analogue
    tape echo machines ever made. In the original
    the “echo” is produced by a playback head and the
    exact “delay time” is set by varying the motor speed.
    Many professionals prefer these “lo-fi” units because
    of the warm, dark echoes they produce
    TAP “TIME” Sets the delay time in a range of
    1...1,486 [ms].
    EDIT 1 “MIX” Adjust the mix amount of the delayed
    sound.
    EDIT 2 “TIME” This lets you use the knob to make
    fine adjustments to the parameter.
    EDIT 3 “FEEDBACK” Adjusts the amount of feedback.
    HINT: In the CHORUS+DELAY combination effect, the
    FEEDBACK parameter is already set to the optimal
    value.
    WARNING! If you crank up the FEEDBACK too much, an
    uncontrollable, cascading “runaway” of echoes will occur.
    So, use your ears when setting this!

    REVERB
    A model of the most popular spring reverb system
    used in guitar amps.
    TAP “TIME” Sets the reverb time in a range of
    0.8...8 [seconds].
    EDIT 1 “MIX” Adjusts the mix amount of the reverb.
    EDIT 2 “TIME” This lets you use the knob to adjust
    the reverb time.
    EDIT 3 “HI DAMP” Adjusts the dampening of the highfrequency
    range.
    HINT: In combination effects, the TIME and HI DAMP parameters
    are already set to optimal values.
