'I'm using the Cali76 fairly gently, to smooth things out. It adds some polish to my tone, and makes me sound better than I am... perfect!'

Ben Lloyd - Guitarist, Frank Turner Band

'The Cali76 gives me fantastic dynamic control when I'm playing live and unlike any other compressor pedal I've tried it enhances my tone at the same time...'

Tarrant Anderson - Bassist, The Frank Turner Band

PURITY OF TONE

The 1176 is a much loved, premium quality studio compressor and in many ways is the "industry standard" vintage studio compressor.

The primary motivation for developing the Cali76, was to bring the sonic properties of this revered studio-classic into the scope of the average guitar-geek. After all, why should high quality compression be confined to the recording studio?

Secondly, existing guitar compressors are generally mediocre performers, and renowned "Tone Killers", adding hiss, whilst simultaneously robbing your signal of its soul!

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 dynamic response of the original, whilst at the same time permitting a smaller, more stage friendly format!

We've slightly tweaked the attack and release times to be of immediate use to guitarists and bass players, as well as in pro-audio applications. Plug it into your recording rig to process vocals, piano, acoustic guitars and drums, with a vintage, analogue warmth!

INTRODUCING THE CALI76-STANDARD
JoshuaGrange

'I like using the Cali76 with just a touch of compression, and the transformer option adds a nice creamy sweetness to the top end. Great compression done right.'

Joshua Grange – Pedal Steel (KD Lang, Beck plus many others)

Joshua is part of KD Lang's band “The Siss Boom Bang.” Joshua has also worked with Beck, The Dixie Chicks, Dwight Yoakam, Robert Randolph, The Jayhawks, Rachael Yamagata, Mandy Moore and many more...
 

'Unlike the small-box compressors I used to use, this thing sounds huge!'

'I haven't used a compressor in my FX chain for a long time... I used to be a a believer in the CS2. Since trying the Cali76, I would consider using compression once again. 

Unlike the small-box compressors I used to use, this thing sounds huge!'

Paul Stacey – Guitar Player / Producer (Oasis, Black Crowes)

'Tim Smith, the guitarist, has just used the Cali in soundcheck and it sounds really great. Much nicer than the Dun*** Cus*** Comp that he used to use...'

Autumn 2012: We've recently sold three Cali76-TX compressors to Noel Gallagher's band, the High Flying Birds, just in time for their current US tour... more info (and hopefully photos) to follow!
