Product Description

The Origin Effects Cali76 delivers studio-quality 1176-style compression using discrete Class-A circuitry that’s true to the topology and design philosophy of the original.

A single combined Attack/Release control takes care of these often misunderstood parameters, guiding you through the most useful combinations while avoiding the less useful ones. Add in a simple high/low ratio switch and you get tons of flexibility without the complexity – instant gratification guaranteed!

The ratio switch provides 4:1 and 20:1 settings. We sourced a number of original 1176 units and chose to match our compression curves to the best sounding unit, which displayed compression curves closely matching those shown in the first Urei manual.

4:1 tends to work best on guitars equipped with humbuckers, as well as bass guitars. The higher ratio setting on the Cali76-C is great for creating pronounced compression effects, such as a country-style squash.

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 is powered by a mains adaptor only. They’ve dispensed with the usual 9V battery option, both to save space and to allow them to adopt a high-current approach, yielding lower noise levels and superior tone.
