    Ask Samsung. Are they still a thing? I'd like to see Catalinbread take over Digitech if Samsung doesn't care about this business niche.

    It’s prime time for Zoom to take the lead in the multiFX modeling pool.....they have the advantage of expanding on what everyone else has already brought to market.

    I’d like to see TCElectronic get back in the game.......the individual pedals and toneprint have run their course IMO. A multiFX with toneprint capabilities and a trading post are ripe since the infrastructure is already there.

    The H9 from Eventide is tired and being past over by the Helix/Headrush adopters. Their Algorithm tech is still state of the art and underutilized. Time for a game changer now that the smoke is clearing.

    Kemper could certainly pick up some market share if they could get the price point down 20%......which is certainly possible with components change that are approaching legacy and streamlined manufacturing and distribution now better than when the original toaster debuted.

    Strymon’s been working on new things, could this be the show where they break em out? Prob a long shot to be debuted at NAMM, but they are due for some new additions to their product line.

    Did you ask Adam? Seems like he would make one for you.

    Does Strymon have any competent engineers on staff at this point? Would love to see Strymon 2.0 show up.

    Make it a Venus reissue in 6 and 12 (lefties too, please) and I’d be so in.

    Did Strymon lose a bunch of people?

    I brought this up on the board here before and they stated that this was a rumor. Carry on.

    1. Line 6: new Variax of some kind, hopefully, new "HX" Variax mounted over Yamaha Guitars. New firmware for Helix with some new amp models.
    2. Yamaha: new THR of some kind. Probably not a THR10 substitute, but a 40/50 watter to compete with Boss´s Nextone
    3. Kemper: A smaller, less featured profiling amp, a kind of Kemper Lite
    4. Friedman: New Dirty Shirley Deluxe pedal.
    5. Boss: Katana 3.0 firmware.
    6. Fender: Some new cheap tube amp
    7. Gibson: hoping a big surprise from them now they are back to Namm

    Seems like this has been a pretty common request since the BE-OD Dlx was released. If the BE Dlx covers MED -> MED/HIGH -> HIGH gain, and the DS would do LOW-MED/MED/MED-HIGH gain, the two together would cover a lot of bases. Basically a four-channel gain setup (w/complete EQ) with just those two pedals.

    Maybe a single-channel HR Deville Landau head w/footswitchable reverb. Still boggles my mind why they haven't done a Deluxe or Deville head yet. Not everyone wants a combo.

    Not expecting them to rule the show or blow us away with a new (or heck, OLD) line of guitars, but SOME kind of presence there should be expected. It's the biggest show of the year (even though shows aren't really necessary, what with the internet and all) - I'd be surprised if they didn't have some kind of booth/section.

    I'll also throw in my other usual request: an EVH Micro Flanger. Just the 'Unchained' sound with a single control knob for Rate.

    With Tore gone I’m thinking TC may have a lower profile this year. It appears all the re-boxed Behringer pedals are out now. They may have one or two more to debut at NAMM unless they’ve been developing all new circuits to stick in those enclosures, which I personally like.

    The toneprint line has run its course like you said, plus they seem to be pushing the new studio plug-in units right now. It would be great if they would re-release all the Nova pedals with improvements.

    Man I would LOVE it if they released a cheaper kemper that did only amp profiles. No effects or anything.
