Suprised VOX never considered a rack modeler.

Now that the NAMM 2012 suspense is over and everyone has looked through the offerings (or lack of) - I started reflecting on the fact that the Vox Valvetronix line has been around a few years. I had the original blue cloth amp years back and it really was pretty good. Now that they have the Valvetronix plus with new features like variable power and more models, it occurred to me that Vox has never offered a rack. It could use the same dedicated foot controller that the amps use.

Vox does offer the floor ToneLABs, it just seems that they could make a killer rack unit. Same applies to Zoom, all floor, no rack.

I think Vox and Tonelab are aimed squarely at the beginner and intermediate market. Those guys don't want to buy a rack case, a floor controller, and expression pedals on top of their gizmo.

I wouldn't be surprised if we don't see another Boss rack-unit and that the GT-Pro winds up being an anomaly in their product line.

They had the desktop model...it wasn't a big seller compared to the floor.

Racks on the whole is a limited market among guitar players. Doesn't surprise me in the slightest. If I was in their marketing/sales dept I'd be saying "no" to the rack idea too.
