Origin Effects Compressors – Limited Edition Laser Engraved Aluminium Finish
2022 marks the 10th anniversary of Origin Effects. We’ve come a long way since the original “big box” SlideRIG pedal, with a range of compact compressors currently available. To commemorate this special occasion, we are offering all our compressor pedals in a stunning laser-engraved, brushed aluminium, limited edition finish (see below for quantities). Inspired by the subtle look of our in-house prototypes, these super-slick pedals are a must- have item for any collector or aesthetically minded player.

The Cali76 Compact Bass is an 1176-style studio-grade FET compressor, complete with dedicated controls for parallel compression and sidechain filtering. We've taken everything that was great about the original Cali76, added new features optimised for bass and compressed the whole lot down into a pedalboard-friendly package!

A single combined Attack/Release control provides a continuous sweep of useful settings while avoiding combinations that can result in ugly distortion artefacts creeping into the lower registers. Meanwhile, the elegant jewel lamp functions as a three-colour gain reduction meter, providing vital and intuitive feedback to the player.

In addition to this pedal's low-noise circuitry and fast, musical FET response, two special features lift the Cali76 Compact Bass above the competition.

The first is the Dry Blend control, which lets you mix your dry signal back in with your compressed signal for true parallel compression, an indispensable studio recording technique. By combining the compressed and dry signals, you get all of the tone thickening and increased sensitivity of the Cali76's 1176-style compression, while retaining the natural attack and dynamic expression in your playing. It's the ultimate in transparent compression - both fat and punchy at the same time.

This pedal's second secret weapon is also culled from the studio engineer's handbook. The Cali76 Compact Bass allows you to rein in the amount of compression applied to the lowest frequencies via a variable-frequency high-pass filter placed in the compressor's sidechain. With the HPF control dialled in, the compression ratio effectively becomes frequency dependant. The low strings come back to life, adopting an extra weightiness, power and dynamic response, while the higher strings are strictly controlled, preventing slapped and popped notes from leaping out of the mix. This unique bass compressor is like having your own studio engineer sat on your pedalboard!
