I would guess that the problem is related to Manipulate's attribute HoldAll
and that numeric constants like Pi are symbols; however, N can be used
rather than specifying 6.28


{Attributes[Manipulate], Head[Pi]}


{{HoldAll, Protected, ReadProtected}, Symbol}


Manipulate[
 Plot[Sin[a x], {x, 0, 4 Pi},
  PlotRange -> {-1.05, 1.05},
  AxesLabel -> {Style["x", 16, Italic], None}],
 {{a, 1, Style["a", 16, Italic, FontFamily -> "Times"]},
  0, 2 Pi // N,
  VerticalGauge[##, ImageSize -> 60] &},
 ControlPlacement -> Left,
 FrameLabel ->
  Style["sin(a x)", 18, Italic, FontFamily -> "Times"]]
