The Cali76 is a premium-quality, 1960s-style FET compressor, inspired by the legendary Urei 1176. The idea behind this design was to bring the sonic properties of this revered studio-classic into the scope of the average guitar-geek…

The topology of the design was kept true to the original, whilst the actual circuitry was carefully condensed. In this way it has been possible to retain the much-loved dynamicresponse of the original, whilst at the same time permitting a smaller, more stage-friendly format!

Origin have also included a studio-grade 1960sstyle discrete preamp, to work as an interface between your guitar and the compressor. The preamp provides gain as well as the optimum conditions for signal transfer.

The transformer output stage works in conjunction with the pedal to provide the user with additional tone-options and connectivity.

A custom-designed transformer sits at the heart of the output stage. The core-size and material have been selected to contribute harmonics when driven by the Class-A, transistor-based, output amplifier.

The Cali76 is a great performance tool, but is by by no means limited to this task. Recording guitarists will find the unit highly useful for post-processing drums, bass and vocals.
