To celebrate the milestone of 10,000 Cali76 Compact Deluxe pedals, we are excited to announce a limited reissue of the original Cali76-TX compressor pedal.
This version of the Cali76 features an additional Class-A transistor stage driving a high-spec output transformer, plus a balanced line/DI output to add extra versatility in the studio and on stage. Choose between our custom iron-core transformer or a top-of-the-line Lundahl transformer.
When we launched the Cali76 back in 2012, it was, and still is, like nothing else on the market. With its large, brushed aluminium enclosure, studio-grade circuitry and astonishingly transparent sound, the Cali76 broke the mould in every department.
Though the award-winning Compact Deluxe has replaced the original large-format Cali76, packing exactly the same circuit topology and peerless performance into a smaller enclosure, the original transformer-equipped models remain highly sought-after by players, producers and collectors alike.
