Origin Effects Cali76 Compact Deluxe Compressor Pedal

Gearank Recommended

The Cali76 Compact Deluxe appeared on our recommended list for Guitar Compressor Pedals from May 2020 until August 2022 when it was removed due to being out-ranked by other compressors.


The Origin Effects Cali76 is a premium studio grade FET compressor packed in a stompbox.

And for a pedal its size, it packs quite a number of controls, which include Ratio, Attack, Release, Dry along with output and input level knobs.

The three main knobs, Attack, Release and Ratio, let you personalize the compression effect, from subtle for transparency to all out for sustain.

The Dry knob serves as a blend control, for which gives adds your dry signal into the mix.

There's also a Jewel lamp which serves as a reduction meter by changing its color.

Finally, this pedal is assembled by hand and comes in a stainless-steel enclosure.
