The VOX Showroom!


Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

Here is a brief explanation of some of the questions you may have about the VOX Showroom.
General VOXbbc Forms

Does The VOX Showroom sell VOX equipment or parts?

No, other than the items that are listed in our Retail Page. We are not a VOX retail outlet nor are we officially associated with Korg USA, Korg UK or VOX Limited. North Coast Music can help you with your VOX needs.


How do I date my VOX product?

Dating VOX products can be very difficult. VOX did not observe or utilize standard dating procedures nor does the serial numbers, or cosmetic features on VOX products represent any concrete dating information which we are aware of. Many VOX products have been modified or canablized over the years so accurate dating can be impossible. If you send us a very detailed description of your VOX product we will be happy to try to date your product. The VOX Story by Dick Denny and David Petersen has a good dating list by features in the appendices. This book can be purchased at The VOX Showroom Retail.


If I submit material to The VOX showroom, will I get credit or be paid?

Yes, you will get credit. No, you will not be paid. At present The VOX Showroom is not self sustaining, so we are not able to pay for submissions at this time. We will return any material submitted to us as well as give credit if requested. Credit is given on a submitted page proper when a photo and technical information are supplied. If just technical information is supplied and no photo, you will receive a mention in the "VOX News" section of the Contents page as well as be permanently added to our "Special Thanks" section on our home page. Credit for submitted material correcting or updating any mis or incorrect information contained within this site will be given in the "VOX News" section in the Content page. "VOX News" credits in all cases will run until the next update only.


How come my VOX amplifier model is not represented in The VOX Showroom?

We are aware that there are a number of VOX products not contained with this site. We only add a page when we have obtained a photo and the corresponding technical information. We do not use copy protected material and as such we will not knowingly use material we have not been given permission to use. If you don't see the item in this site you are looking for, you can be assured that we are looking for photos and information for future postings in The VOX Showroom.


How come it takes so long for the pages in The VOX Showroom to download?

Graphics contained within this site have been optimized and are usually less than 50k. The pages are set up to load most of the common graphics you will need to access within the first few pages. Your first few pages will take longer to load than subsequent pages assuming you come in on our home page. After that, you will usually only be required to download a single graphic and the pages should download faster.

High traffic on the Internet proper, an overload on our server or your server can also slow transfer times. Flushing your browser's cache can also speed up access times.


Why does the VOX Showroom charge for schematics?

There are two reasons why we charge for schematics. First, if we sent out free schematics to everyone who asked, there wouldn't be enough hours in the day to make copies, address and mail them. We simply cannot justify the un-recovered materials and costs. Second, this site is a private site and is not supported by anyone except by our sponsors and the few dollars made off sales of schematics and such - which to this date does not cover our overhead. Creating, maintaining and updating this site takes tens of hours a week not to mention the hours of answering email questions.

Visitors are welcome to post ads for schematics in our Classifieds area for free.


Can I put HTML tags anywhere in my posts?

No. You can not use HTML tags in any field.


Why didn't my post show up?

Your post most likely did not show up, because your browser did not reload the page, it simply pulled it out of cache. If you received a page after posting indicating the message you posted was posted - your message has been posted. The next time you visit your message will be available to browse. If you must view your message immediately, reload your browser and it should then appear.


Where can I get the scripts for the VOXbbc and the other interactive areas featured within this site?

The scripts used in The VOX Showroom are heavily modified freeware or custom written for the purposes of The VOX Showroom. Some of the original scripts were written in Perl and created by Matt Wright. The original scripts are free to anyone who wishes to use them and you can get them as well as other scripts at: http://worldwidemart.com/scripts/.


How do I know if the form I submitted was accepted?

Sometimes due to server overload your submission may take a few moments or longer to process your request. Forms contained within this site check your submission for proper formatting, proper email addresses, check options and send notification email responses. This can sometimes take some time. All scripts contained within this site will report when they have accepted or not accepted your submissions. Please be patient.


Why are business advertisements not allowed to be included in postings in The VOX Showroom?

There are two main reasons for exclusion of business posting within this site. The first is; it is unfair to our proper advertisers who are paying for space within this site. The second is; we spend many hours each week maintaining this site, not to mention paying the monthly overhead. We feel that businesses wishing to post messages soliciting for customers should pay for utilization of this site. Your posting of business ads within this site is the cyber equivalent of us setting up a booth in front of your store in an attempt to unjustly reap the benefits of your hard work and advertising. Our ad rates are extremely low and advertisers would be helping to support this site as well as providing a place for VOX fans to see their products legitimately. We encourage commercial business to support this site so we can grow and maintain The VOX Showroom for all the VOX fans around the world. Feel free to contact us directly for business advertising within The VOX Showroom. Additional information may be found on our dealer information page.
