Description

The Origin Effects Cali76 Compact Deluxe is an 1176-style studio-grade FET compressor, featuring high-current, low-noise, discrete Class-A circuitry and a dedicated parallel compression control… all contained in one compact, stompbox-sized package!

Origin Effects have managed to build all of the functionality from their flagship Cali76 Standard into this little marvel – and also added the much-requested parallel mix control previously only found on their limited editions. Separate controls for Attack, Release and Ratio let you precisely tailor your tone, from transparent transient control to flat-out limiting and monster sustain. Meanwhile, the elegant jewel lamp functions as an intuitive three-color gain reduction meter.

The ace in the hole is the Dry Blend control, which lets you mix your dry signal back in with your compressed guitar tone for true parallel compression. An indispensable studio recording technique, parallel compression gives you all of the tone thickening and increased sensitivity of the Cali76, while keeping hold of the natural dynamic expression in your playing. It’s the ultimate in transparent compression and sustain. By blending your “honest” guitar tone together with more subtle compression, you can also create the kind of three-dimensional, sparkling tone that you’re used to hearing on records, not coming out of your amp.

Smaller Size With No Compromise


The original Cali76 is a big, beautiful compressor pedal that delivers studio-quality 1176-style compression using discrete Class-A circuitry that's true to the topology and design philosophy of the original.

The Cali76 Compact Deluxe is of the same blood line, sharing the features, performance and pedigree of its larger sibling, but in a smaller package and with parallel compression added on top. A third of the size of the Cali76 Standard, the Compact Deluxe can be housed on even the most congested of pedalboards.

Like all of the Origin Effects Compact Series pedals, the Cali76 Compact Deluxe features high-current, discrete, Class-A circuitry for transparent, low-noise performance. We've taken a no-compromise approach to the circuit design using only the best of modern components.

Rugged MELF resistors offer low noise performance and rock-solid reliability. Film and tantalum capacitors offer tight tolerances and superb linearity. Carefully chosen transistors biased at relatively high currents yield a distinct signal-to-noise advantage.

Please note: the Cali76 Compact Deluxe is powered by a mains adaptor only. There is no 9V battery option, both to save space and to allow a high-current approach, yielding lower noise levels and superior tone.

A compressor that finally doesn't neuter my low end!

Having owned original grey-box Ross compressors, script Dyna Comps and just about every other boutique compressor out there, I can honestly say that the Cali76-CD has ended my search for compression. Like most compressors, it really helps even out the dynamic range of my fingerstyle playing but what I love most is that my dry signal stay completely in tact, especially the low end. It's super quiet and built like a brick.
