  1. What is Instagram, Facebook, Twitter? What is a Hashtag and why are the pound signs next to words without spaces?

    Seems rather difficult to figure out how to enter the contest.

    1. Hi Scott, If social media isn’t your thing, then please check out the rules and you can enter by email 🙂 Thanks so much!

  2. Hi,

    Always interested in your stellar products.

    Unfortunately, I do not use social media, just email, so I cannot enter your giveaway, but regardless, it still caught my eye and wanted to check out the products.

    Nice Job (as always),
    -Kip L.

  3. Hey Strymon, to win the pedal I have to post a photo of the pedal. Why would I need to win the pedal if I already have the pedal? I don’t own the pedal, so could I post a photo of something else and still win?

    1. Hi Keith, There has been a lot of confusion on this and I need to look at the rules and see if I can write it better. There are no musical equipment necessary in any of the photos, just a beautiful sunset or a lovely river. Thanks!

  4. So, you asked me to send a photo of a product which I don‘t own, but want to win? Or do you ask me to send a photo of a product which I already own, to win a second one?
    Well, I’m a bit irritated. Sorry folks.


    1. Hi Thomas, I’m so sorry for the confusion. The photo just has to be a sunset or a river, no pedal necessary. No musical equipment necessary. Just nature 🙂 Thanks!

  5. I am a musician of many talents, string instruments, guitar, banjo, ganjo, pedal steel guitar and mandolin of which I have several of each. When I am gone I store all my instruments at my parents home for security. Plus I know a little piano, as we had one in our home.

    I use a lot of equipment, and the Riverside and Sunset wouldbe a great addition. .

    Please enter me in your contest, and it would be my pleasure to do my word of mouth advertising..

    Thanks a million.

  6. At present have your OLA –> EL CAPISTAN –> BLUE SKY, great stuff and no one can make it better than what you make.

  7. So to enter the contest one has to buy the pedal and take photos in order to win the same pedal… If you already own it then why enter the contest to win the same pedal you own… seems like someone didn’t quite think this through.

    1. Hi Eric, I’m sorry the rules are confusing. I hoped adding “nature photo” would make it make sense. There doesn’t need to be any pedals in the photo. Just a sunset or a river. That’s it 🙂 I hope that makes it easier. Thanks, Angela

  8. There was a time when i figured all companies were on the “other-side” of the fence so to speek..unreachable. But Strymon has provin again and again how open they are to the community. This may sound like im buttering your bread (because i am and you deserve it)…but Strymon is literally my all time favorite pedal company on many fronts and wether i win or lose, Strymon will always be at the top for me forever. There is no subsitution for quality.

  9. Great pedals you guys i have bought four modulation pedals so far id love to hear what the overdrives sound like. Keep them coming

  10. hi angela: i tried to send a picture-,sunsetstrymon thru instagram but struck out so i sent it thru facebook with the #SunsetStrymon hashtag. how do i know that you’ve received it? first time doing this.

    thanks for all strymon pedals i have: mobius, timeline, big sky and deco. looking to get the sunset or riverside someday.

    1. Hi Michael, I don’t see your name coming up when I search through the #strymonsunset photos. Your permissions may be set to private. Why don’t you just email me your entry and that way you will know it’s come through 🙂 Thanks, Angela [email protected]
