Studio-grade Bass Compressor in a Stompbox

If you’re always chasing down the ultra-fat yet articulate bass tones heard on your favorite records, We know that can be challenging to pull off in a live setup. but the question is why? What’s the missing ingredient? Well, one of the components of a stellar studio bass sound is the use of a top-notch outboard compressor unit — the kind that’s rackmounted and, typically, carries a hefty price tag. Boutique stompbox makers Origin Effects endeavored to provide that crucial sonic tool in a pedalboard-friendly format. And with their Cali76 Compact Bass compressor pedal, they totally deliver. Based on an iconic FET compressor, the Cali76 Compact Bass compressor pedal offers a level of control not generally available in a stompbox, including Input and Output level controls, Ratio, and Attack/Release. Additionally, it features a highpass filter for compressing higher frequencies and leaving lower frequencies uncompressed, an excellent way to tame transients while retaining a thick bottom end. The Cali76 Compact Bass compressor also features a Dry blend knob, so you can hit your compressor hard to beef up your mids and add sustain, then fold it under the uncompressed signal to keep your dynamics intact. Origin Effects takes pride in manufacturing superior-quality pedals, so each pedal is built by hand and housed in a stunning hand-polished brushed stainless-steel enclosure that looks as good as the Cali76 Compact Bass compressor sounds. And trust us — it sounds amazing!
