The Shin-Juku Drive delivers legendary boutique amp tones right from your pedalboard. The MXR Custom Shop design team worked with Shin Suzuki, Japan's most celebrated amp tech and pedal designer, to capture the sound of one of the rarest and most sought-after amps ever made. Shin used his intimate knowledge of said amplifier to create a pedal that provides smooth, wide open overdrive with tons of sustain and incredibly fast response time to every playing detail.
The Shin-Juku Drive's simple three-knob interface allows you to call up a wide range of sounds, from an organic boost to full on grinding overdrive. At lower gain settings, this pedal works amazingly as an always on tonal sweetener. Pushing the Dark switch cuts high frequencies for a darker, mellower sound.
The Shin-Juku Drive features true bypass switching and comes in a sturdy housing that's ready for a lifetime on the road.
