Ya I for one reason or another have not got in in previous years n almost though I blew it again..Got one last year and also in 2019. Both times got the standard mixture that comes in 95% of the boxes (hat, strap, picks, strings, polish, & cloth, coozie, nut lube, set up tool, small hardware, etc.). You definitely get enough stuff to cover the price of the stocking, the hat and strap alone are worth about $50. Whether you’d actually buy all that stuff, well, I’ve used some of it, some not. See the pic below for most of what i got in the 2019 & 2021 stockings. The hats are cool and worth about 60% of the price of admission.
I look at it like a reasonable lottery. You might get a guitar or a cool pedal but most people get what I’ve gotten. It’s not a big investment and it’s fun to see if you get lucky.
I was successful this morning getting through. I was surprised I got through because I was talking to my wife about something and didn’t connect until 11:07 EST (it opened at 11:00). I got shut out in 2020 in less time than that. It’s usually sold out for sure by 10 minutes after the hour.

Gonna start reading and educating myself .. learn some new words and hopefully understand their meaning.Got ya. It’s a kit for the KOT(the King of Tone) and basically combines two Blues Breakers to great effect. It’s not exactly rocket science but might prove a challenge for a first build.
Very cool. As you can see in my earlier post above, I’ve gotten the standard swag for my first 2 tries. I’d be more than happy to get a pedal in kit form. Still holding out hope for a guitar, until I see a small box delivered! USPS says mine will be delivered tomorrow but I usually let my family give it to me unopened for Christmas so unless it’s really big or ultra heavy, I probably won’t know till Dec 25.I guessed right it is a Two Kings Boost pedal kit.
Sounds like a flake paint job n some stripes are in order.
We will find out how good of a pedal builder I am it looks intimidating but maybe I will be able to fix my Detroit Cascket after this.

I will look into that and when I start I will start a thread here.There's a few guys on GuitarsCanada.com that know a whole bunch about building pedals and tweaking circuits, you might want to get advice on there, you can post a build thread. Also, there are a couple of DIY pedal forums.
