  • Delivers natural, musical compression that will enhance the tone & playability of any instrument...


    The 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 in one compact, stompbox-sized package!

    Origin Effects managed to build all of the functionality from their flagship Cali76 Standard into this little marvel and added the much-requested parallel mix control previously found only on their limited editions versions.

    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.

    Its 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!

    Like all of Origin Effects' Compact Series pedals, the Cali76 Compact Deluxe features high-current, discrete, Class-A circuitry for transparent, low-noise performance. A no-compromise approach to the circuit design is 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.

    The Cali76 Compact Deluxe is of the same bloodline, 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.
