SKU: 76-SE

Product Description

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.

Origin Effects modelled their compressor after the famed 1176, and even matched the compression curves from their pedals to the 1176. This rather exciting Stacked Edition, as the name suggests, crams two of these amazing compressors into a single stompbox.

Double Compression

Having twice the amount of squash is a wonderful thing – more is more, right? Doubling up doesn’t necessarily mean saturating your tone beyond recognition. What it actually allows you to do is hone in on a whole new dynamic palette. Bathe your sound in heaps of sustain, or stack both compression circuits dialled back, combining harmonic depth with brilliant consistency.

Award-winning Tone

As mentioned earlier, the Cali76 is arguably one of the go-to compression pedals for professionals. Designed and built in the UK, it quickly gained a reputation for proficiency. So much so, that it received multiple accolades from the likes of Sound On Sound, Premier Guitar, Guitar Magazine…the list goes on. Now you’ve got access to twice the power – it’s a no brainer!

Here’s what Origin Effects say:

The brand-new Cali76-SE stacks two 1176-style compressors inside one compact pedal. As well as independent input level adjustment via the IN and THRU controls, each compression stage features its own Attack/Release control allowing you to home in on specific dynamics or indulge in super-squashy sustain.

This is an epic compressor. I am leaving it on all the time. Feeding into tumnus which is on most of the time. Fender Strat, Marshal amp. Just sounds perfect. It was expensive and I have zero buyer remorse.

OK. Confession time. I've never really 'got' compressors. I'd only ever had compression as an option as part of a multiFX, and it seemed either to make no noticeable difference, or to squash out articulation, dynamics and feel. But MAN! I get it now. This Cali76 is a real always-on-makes-everything-better pedal. From subtle reinforcement and tonal deepening to this-note-will-sustain-for-several-days excess. And with the stacked edition you can have the different halves acting and combining to produce some great balanced tones while retaining loads of articulation and detail, plus great presence even at low volumes. Built like a tank. Very easy to understand. Mixable dry signal to retain any transients you fancy. In/Out volumes allow for super quiet operation too. It's so good I'm prepared to have it on my board sideways to squeeze it in. Not something I'd do for any other pedal I've tried so far. Not cheap, but I am so glad I splashed out in it. I am converted.

I use it to compress cleans with a Les Paul Standard with PAF's. Brilliant for this application. It can play nicely with some drives too. Hiss will be evident in all compression but this pedal was not to bad. Its up there with the best.if you know how to use the features. Less is more and take it from there.

An incredible pedal - for electric and acoustic guitar and keyboards! Really gets to that studio sound more than anything else I've tried.
