Description

The Origin Effects SlideRIG Compact Deluxe takes the transparent tone and incredible sustain of the original SlideRIG and packs it into a compact pedal. A third of the size of the original, the SlideRIG Compact Deluxe also offers three times the tone-shaping potential thanks to its unique three-way parallel compression mix controls.

Already legendary amongst slide players, the SlideRIG delivers clean “infinite sustain” in true Little Feat fashion. In the studio, Lowell George used a pair of 1176 compressors chained together to create his trademark tone – clean and shimmering, yet full, fat and dripping with sustain. The original SlideRIG pedal gave guitarists a more affordable, practical and portable way of replicating this tone, but now Origin Effects have taken it even further.

More flexible than ever, the SlideRIG Compact Deluxe gives you access to conventional single-stage compression, as well as the SlideRIG’s trademark dual-stage compression. Using the pedal’s unique three-way mixer stage, you can blend in your dry, uncompressed signal alongside the single- and dual-stage compression signals!

This is parallel compression on steroids. Together with the pedal’s high-current, low noise preamp and a revised gain structure that allows greater control over compression levels, the trio of blend controls yield limitless possibilities – transparency, dynamic integrity, squash, sustain... you name it!

Smaller Size With No Compromise


The original SlideRIG is a compressor like no other, and not just because of its unique dual-chained design. Featuring discrete Class-A circuitry that's true to the topology and design philosophy of the original 1176, the SlideRIG achieves the seemingly impossible by delivering not only more squash and sustain than any other compressor pedal but lower noise and greater tonal transparency too.

With the SlideRIG Compact Deluxe, Origin Effects set out to provide the same performance and unique features as the original, while drastically reducing the pedal’s footprint and adding a powerful three-way mixer stage that brings parallel compression to the SlideRIG for the very first time. However, the design philosophy and attention to detail remain unchanged.

Like all of the Origin Effects Compact Series pedals, the SlideRig Compact features high-current, discrete, Class-A circuitry for transparent, low-noise performance. A no-compromise approach to the circuit design was taken, 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 SlideRIG Compact is powered by a mains adaptor only. There is no 9V battery option, both to save space and to allow us to adopt a high-current approach, yielding lower noise levels and superior tone.
