    Just entered a Strymon Dig one and as i'm filling it out I'm telling myself I'm never gonna win. ha

    Curious to know if you guys have won and what you have won.

    I just entered the same giveaway and if you win, I'll be happy for you but slightly bummed because the only thing I've ever won is a Pepsi.

    I have not. I ususally don't enter because I am an "Eeyore"! I entered this one though.

    I never have. I have a theory that no one has ever won. But I'm an optimist, do you have a link to the Dig giveaway?

    No. All those giveaway and contests are just a decoy to gather user information and sell it to advertising and marketing companies.

    I'm just kidding. :anon

    You guys shouldn't bother entering for the Dig. I'm going to win that. :)

    Seriously though - The only things I've won are a Lava Coil cable and just recently a Bearfoot t-shirt. Never pedal, amp or guitar though...

    I entered a Russ Miller drum contest where you had to correctly identify 5 snares and I won the "Drummer's Ultimate Survival Kit!" The funny thing is, while I am a drum OWNER (I own 2 drum sets), I am NOT a DRUMMER! but it's still pretty cool! (Maybe if I EVER learn how to play, this will come in handy!!!)

    I won an iPad once. Pretty much the only thing I have ever won. Thanks for letting me know about the Strymon DIG draw!

    I won a transformer big wheel when I was 6. I promise I was more excited about that than any of you could ever be about a pedal! Promise. :)

    I won a Voicelive3 from TC Helicon last Winter. A total shock when I got the e-mail - assumed it was spam at first. I went to their website and there was my name on their homepage as winner of the contest!

    Yes I've won a give away. Most are fixed, and most prizes go to valued repeat customers while the company gains your contact information. It sad really.
