MXR has unveiled its new Raijin Drive pedal.

Designed in tandem with Japanese amp and pedal designer Shin Suzuki—who was also behind the Shin-Juku Drive pedal—the overdrive and distortion pedal's aim is to provide an "aggressive, harmonically rich punch" with its distortion channel plus a "smooth, fat, wide open sound" with its overdrive signal.

The pedal features level, tone and drive controls, a distortion/overdrive toggle, true bypass switching and a 9V power supply or battery operation.

The MXR Raijin Drive pedal is available now for $129.
