However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Limited Edition Pedal

This Limited Edition pedal was designed in collaboration with legendary pedal designer Shin Suzuki, who is renowned for his intimate knowledge of (Dumble) D-style amplifiers. The MXR custom shop worked closely with Shin to produce a unique pedal that emulates the sound and essence of the famous Dumble amp.

Easy To Control

The Shin-Juku Drive features a simple three-knob interface which allows you to achieve a wide range of sounds, such as an organic boost to full on grinding overdrive. When used at a lower gain, this D-style pedal works amazingly as an “always on” tonal sweetener. In addition to the three control knobs, the Shin-Juku Drive also includes a Dark switch which cuts high frequencies for a darker, mellower sound. As well as providing a unique sound, this compact pedal also features true bypass switching for a consistent tone.
