Description & Specs

From Origin Effects:

The Cali76 Stacked Edition is a new spin on the SlideRIG concept. Like the SlideRIG, it features two of our Cali76 compressor circuits, arranged in series. The difference is, now you can control how much of your signal gets fed from one to the other. It also boasts independently adjustable, combined Attack/Release controls for each compression stage.

The SlideRIG is synonymous with ultra-clean, extreme sustain. By daisy-chaining two of our painstakingly engineered, 1176-style compressor circuits together, we made readily available a compression technique that was once the preserve of high-end studios.

While the original SlideRIG featured fixed attack and release characteristics and a fixed gain relationship between the first and second compression stages, the Cali76 Stacked Edition removes these constraints. With just six controls, you can explore a whole world of single-stage and dual-stage compression flavours.

The gold Thru knob sits at the heart of the Cali76 Stacked Edition. While the input level knob, which controls the pedal’s studio-grade discrete transistor preamp, determines how hard your signal hits the fixed threshold of the first compressor, the Thru knob lets you decide how hard the output of the first compressor hits the second.

As well as adjusting the amount of compression occurring in each stage, the Stacked Edition lets you independently alter each compressor’s attack and release characteristics. Using these simple controls, you can easily combine two distinct flavours of compression – one to add sustain and fullness and the other to subtly limit any stray peaks, for example – or max out both stages for a super-sensitive, ultra-sustaining “clean overdrive” effect.

Setting up the Cali76 Stacked Edition is made even easier thanks to the addition of individual VU meter LEDs for each stage. Sitting either side of the pedal’s traditional on/bypass jewel light, the VU meters give an immediately intuitive indication of how much gain reduction is occurring in each compressor.

Like all of our Compact Series pedals, the Cali76 Stacked Edition features high-current, discrete, Class-A circuitry for transparent, low-noise performance. We’ve taken a no-compromise approach to the circuit design using only the best of modern components.

Rugged MELF resistors offer low noise performance and rock-solid reliability. Film and tantalum capacitors offer tight tolerances and superb linearity. Carefully chosen transistors biased at relatively high currents yield a distinct signal-to-noise advantage.

We're right off the CTA Brown Line 'Paulina' Stop Just North of Belmont and just West of Ashland.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
