'The SlideRIG is unbelievable...
...
it's so clean!'

I have used it on the latest Little Feat recording and it's remarkable how quiet it is. Having two settings makes it perfect for live shows as you can step it up for soloing!

I can't wait to have it on my pedal board for the coming year of shows… I really am looking forward to using it in my rig and I am sure that our front of house man will be happy to have something a little quieter to deal with!"

Paul Barrere, Little Feat – (December 2011)

"Top Quality, Unique Dual Compressor!"

While line-checking Paul's rig, I immediately noticed two things...One, The SlideRIG was far smoother in its response and sound than the two individual compressor setup. Two, the "pumping" effect that is a common complaint of compressors, did not exist with the SlideRig.

...it's just about the best pedal compressor one could hope to find on the market. In my opinion it's light years ahead of Boss, MXR, and even Keeley...

PURITY OF TONE

Paul Barrere - Little Feat
Our goal was to reproduce
Lovingly developed to offer slide

Our goal was to reproduce the slide guitar tones first heard on Little Feat’s classic album, "Dixie Chicken".
The tone is clean and transparent, with an almost infinite shimmering-sustain. For many this represents the ultimate in slide-tone.
In the studio, the Little Feat tone was achieved by daisy-chain-connecting two Urei 1176 "FET" compressor channels. The 1176 has a fast response and a unique character. Chaining the compressor sections vastly increases the amount of compression and sustain...

Origineffects1

'For electric slide guitar, lap steel guitar and pedal steel, this is a superb piece of kit...'

Designed by electronics wizard, Simon Keats, the SlideRIG is beautifully made and simple to use. The idea behind the SlideRIG was to create that much sought-after 'Lowell George Dixie Chicken' slide guitar sound, and there is no question that Simon has achieved exactly what he set out to do. It has a pure analogue tone and the sustain is classic 'Lowell George'. It really is 'that sound'!

Every unit is serial numbered and comes with a well written user manual that is easy to understand. The before-and-after sales service I have received from Origin Effects is first class.

Shine On, Michael Messer

The SlideRIG is a highly specialised guitar compressor. It carefully squeezes and amplifies your guitar signal to create the effect of greatly extended, elongated notes.

The unit contains two chain-connected 1176-style compressor-circuits that process your guitar's signal at all times... Duplicate controls allow the user to switch between two different "patches". Each set of controls simultaneously adjusts the parameters of BOTH compressor blocks, so adjustments can be made with ease!

The SlideRIG delivers more "squash", combined with a transparent tone and lower levels of electronic noise!

• 100% Class-A discrete signal

• Chained compressors for more

'THIS IS THE BEST DAMN BOX FOR SLIDE EVER!'

I've been searching for such a unit for years, and have finally found it in the Origin Effects SlideRIG. Simply perfection!!'

Gary Lucas

Many will know Gary from the time he spent playing slide-guitar in Captain Beefheart's Magic Band, as well as for his involvement with Jeff Buckley (Gary co-wrote and performed on the songs "Grace" and "Mojo Pin", which opened Jeff's double platinum Sony album "Grace"). Gary has gone on to produce a vast body of highly-appraised work, including collaborations with the likes of Leonard Bernstein, Chris Cornell, Lou Reed, John Cale, Nick Cave and David Johansen.

Dubbed "The Thinking Man's Guitar Hero" by The New Yorker, "The world's most popular avant-rock guitarist" by The Independent)...

Simon Keats: "The SlideRIG is something I selfishly designed for myself because I wanted to get that Little Feat sound, and I was going to settle for nothing less than perfection!

I did my research, sourced the correct vintage studio compressors, and got "that" sound! I then carefully condensed the circuitry without affecting the tone!

With the cascaded compression blocks, you get almost endless sustain and the guitar becomes super-sensitive."

'The SlideRIG offers a wholly accurate recreation of the Little Feat slide tone...'  

I don't tend to use compression on Pedal Steel in most normal situations, but I would definitely use the SlideRIG in a rock or blues context. In fact I’ve been using the unit in the Terry Reid Band recently in just this way. Beyond that, the SlideRIG opens up many creative possibilities...”
