Origin Effects Cali76 Compact Deluxe Union Jack Celebration PedalLimited Edition - Only 250 pedals made!
The Cali76 is regarded as one of, if not the best footswitch compressor available on the market today. The pedal was designed in order to give you a useable, high-quality compressor, without too much messing around with knobs that are hard to understand.
The Cali76 Compact Deluxe will allow you to fine tune the compression on your guitar by separately adjusting the attack, release and ratio. You can take the pedal from mildly squashed for sustaining to solos to super-compressed funk.
Origin Effects modelled their compressor after the famed 1176, and even matched the compression curves from their pedals to the 1176.
To celebrate its 10,000th pedal sale, Origin Effects have released the limited edition Cali76 with an exclusive "Union Jack" graphic. With an initial run of just 250 units, make sure to get your hands on one of these before they all go!
The Jewel Light Meter
The Jewel light will act as a VU meter for you to visually monitor how much your signal is being compressed. If you want less compression and more dynamics, you can then turn down the ratio switch and push more dry signal into your amp.
No Battery For Good Reason
The Cali76 is a mains powered pedal only. It doesn't have a 9v battery slot, so that they could use the space for higher grade components, and so that they could have a high-current approach. Higher current will yield purer signal, and true tone!
They've also made the pedal flexible in terms of the voltage it uses. So you can run the pedal on 9v or 18v and this will affect the sound of your compression in quite a big way.
The easiest way to remember it is, if you use it on 18v you will have more headroom and a slightly more 'open' sounding compressor.
Here's What Origin Effects Say About The Cali76 Deluxe:
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 contained in one compact, stompbox-sized package!
We’ve managed to build all of the functionality from our flagship Cali76 Standard into this little marvel – and we’ve added the much-requested parallel mix control previously only found on our 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-colour gain reduction meter.
The Limited Edition "Union Jack" Pedal:
"Boutique pedal company, Origin Effects, is celebrating its 10,000th pedal sale - an impressive feat for a small team still hand-crafting all its pedals in-house as it has done from the beginning. To celebrate this achievement, Origin Effects has released a special edition of its flagship model, the Cali76 Compact Deluxe compressor pedal.
Drawing from the company's British engineering heritage, the pedal is emblazoned with a specially-designed Union Jack artwork and limited to an initial run of just 250 units, available only through official Origin Effects dealers. The pedal is a celebration not only of a rapidly growing business and successful sales but also Origin Effects' ability to stay true to its heritage values, still building each pedal with the highest quality components and materials, assembled by the UK's finest technicians and, most of all, created from start to finish in the Origin Effects Headquarters in Oxfordshire, UK.
The Limited Edition Cali76 Compact Deluxe will also be Origin Effects' first pedal to feature its newly updated full-colour packaging and is priced the same as its regular-finished Cali76-CD counterpart.
Origin Effects' commitment to building superior-quality, studio-grade effects pedals has set it aside in the market place as the go-to product in its field. Following on from huge investment in the company's production team and management structure, Origin Effects is looking forward to releasing many new products and exciting new concepts over the coming year. This increase in production will not diminish the company's dedication to quality with all pedals still being produced in-house with the same vision and integrity as when founder and designer, Simon Keats, first started the company.
"The Celebration Cali76-CD Union Jack not only honours a milestone for our small business but also the start of the next exciting chapter of the Origin Effects journey."
