    You guys at Strymon rock! Way to go!

  15. I’d like to see the Girls Rock Camp Alliance to receive a timeline because I am a gear head who doesn’t see many female guitarists featured often. I’d like to see more encouragement for young girls to play and have a creative outlet of expression. That being said, I’m thankful I have a little sister who is interested in music. and

  16. Music First is a great program and thank you to Stymon for taking this initiative. I’ve been doing a lot of live looping in my music these days and one of the next pedals I’m planning to get is the El Capistan for it’s 20 second loop with decay setting for evolving loop style.

    Keep up the excellent work guys and gals of Strymon.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all!

  27. A lightning strike on the power lines directly behind my house last summer left me with almost zero working pedals. My only delay pedal was one of them. It’s funny how you don’t miss, or even rely on a pedal until it stops working. Hey, even if I don’t win, someone will. And that means that there will be some really happy kids!

  28. I’m73 and still playing and looking for new equipment, especially the Strymon Timeline, Strymon Deco, and the Styrmon El Capistan…and I’m Thankful that at 73 I can still play and look for new equipment.

  31. i have wanted a Timeline for years,if i would win,i would donate the second Timeline To Columbus Ohio School of Rock keep music Alive with Strymon

  32. I’m so grateful, i have an opportunity to know and learn about music easily (with some good stuff) but i’m always stunned by homeless kids (street kids) who know and learn about music hardly but they can play ing music (or some instruments) beautifully. I hope i can get give something new to them through strymon. I’ll give to RMHR (music education non-profit for homeless kids or street kids)

  33. About twelve years ago I lied to a girl and claimed I had all Death Cab’s albums as I knew she was a huge fan. I didn’t have a single one. After a few dates she arranged to come to my house, so I swiftly had to purchase their whole back catalogue. I don’t see the girl anymore, but not long goes by without me and those Death Cab LPs getting together. I guess I’m thankful for the part of my brain that thinks it’s ok to lie to cute girls.

  34. Thankful to have my wife and kids in my life. I love my Lex and plan on getting an Ola. Would love to own the Timeline.

  35. I am thankful for my wonderful 5 year old daughter who is interested in Daddy’s small music setup and wants to learn more.

I am temporarily using another delay but would love to win a Timeline again for myself and be blessed. I would donate the other one to Little Kids Rock as children are the future.

  40. Great idea,

    I’ve been working with kids of various ages and cultures for a long time and have always used music to teach lessons within teachable moments in a variety of ways. Music is universal and stirs the creative force within us all that simply wants to expand and share with no boundaries.

    Keep up the great work Strymon Team,


  41. Giving thanks for the great people who use music as a tool to help people in the community. Personally, music gets me through tough times and it’s great to see organizations using this tool to better the lives of people around them.

    Thank you

  42. I am 71, Played guitar since I was 14 and a Vietnam war combat vet who came home with serious PTSD. Turned my back on everything except making music, I was blessed. Music and my musician friends saved my life and my sanity. For those who have served and at times paid terrible prices physically and emotionally, making music can be the path from darkness and horror to the place where there is beauty and light. I know, I walked that path. Still do, every day.

    Guitars for Vets is my choice. We owe these heroes…..Big Time!

  43. Great idea. I’m greatful for all those who are close even if they’re far away and for Sugarpulp, three friends who double as my band mates.

  44. Such a great idea for a giveaway! I am thankfull for the Beatle’s Something, the song that made me want to be a part of this.

  45. Fantastic way to give back. I really appreciate businesses that have other passions than just the bottom line profits. Thank you Strymon!!!

  46. Thankful for all the music and musical heroes in my life and I’m ecspecially thankful for MusicFund for all that they do!

  47. I am thankful for the sound effect of my Deco pedal. The saturation involves all the frequencies, exactly what I want for my bass. The wobble and lag time makes for excellent chorus to doubling effect.

  48. It’s really killer of them to donate such an incredible tool for kids to learn on

    I remeber i was 16 when i was in piano class (high school) and I found an old beatup crybaby wah in the closet and the teacher let me keep it (which kind of blew me away)
    It’s really cool to have nice equipment in youth music programs, it make a huge difference, as a participant it gives you more of the feeling that people support you instead of giving up on you (like it often feels with school music programs)

  49. I have several Strymon pedals all of which are in permanent residence on my pedalboard and a Timeline would sure fit right in with the others. Great products!

  50. Thankful for those who take the opportunity to help others, to speak kind words and create things of beauty for all to enjoy. Humanity as a whole can be a massive power for good and that’s something to be grateful for indeed.

  51. I am thankful for my family and friends. Especially my 5 nieces from 1 year old to 20. It’s been a blessing to watch them grow.

  52. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway and also a chance to help pay it forward with the gift of music. I’m thankful for all the support my pat gave me to get me started

  53. This is truly a great idea! Hope I win, not only because I’d love a Timeline on my board – but also because a fantastic music school will get one as well! 🙂

  54. I’d love to be able to donate a Timeline – there are actually several nonprofit music education/exploration programs that I know would use every capability of the pedal – it’s a great tool in the studio & @ a gig. Thanks

  55. Strymon is awesome – I’ve been a fan for years and encourage musicians to toss the junk and get serious with Strymon……

  56. Hi, I play electric and acustic guitar since i was 9 years old.Today i have 56 and still play.About a year ago i looked in youtube a video of a strymon time line pedal and i was shock by the wonderfull sound.In this moment i don’ have the money to by it.This Is a wonderfull oportunity to win one.I love the idea to gift another one to a music nonprofit charity Organization.God bless you all the strymon family.Your friend from Puerto Rico.
