Default all the letters in the alphabet

I think it might be a keyboarding phrase like "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" or a panogram like "The five boxing wizards jump quickly." Anyway maradnu you ROCK.

Default Outstanding!

Great solving! The No-Prize goes to maradnu. Every year in Las Vegas, they have a Rock, Paper, Scissors Tournament and the winner receives $50,000. If you win the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, you only win $4,000. It just doesn't seem fair.

Amazingly few discotheques provide jukeboxes. (40 letters)
Heavy boxes perform quick waltzes and jigs. (36 letters)
Jinxed wizards pluck ivy from the big quilt. (36 letters)
Big Fuji waves pitch enzymed kex liquor. (33 letters)
The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog. (33 letters)
Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs. (32 letters)
The five boxing wizards jump quickly. (31 letters)
How quickly daft jumping zebras vex. (30 letters)
Quick zephyrs blow, vexing daft Jim. (29 letters)
Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow. (29 letters)
Waltz, nymph, for quick jigs vex Bud. (28 letters)
Blowzy night-frumps vex'd Jack Q. (26 letters)
Glum Schwartzkopf vex'd by NJ IQ. (26 letters)

I made a pangram at school once

It was REALLY short... But I forget what it was...

It had the word 'xylophone' in it, that's all I remember
