I was at Exeter Uni from 79-82 and bought my trusty Ibanez TS808 from there and also several other pedals that I should have kept (but didn't), like a very rare Electro Harmonix Queen Triggered Wah.
We could have stood side by side pressing noses against the window. Did you go in when they had the huge Paiste gong (about 6' diameter) in the window display?
I was a regular IM reader as well from about '76. I didn't realise they had only been going a short while at the time, as it seemed a well established magazine.
