What makes the Origin Effects Cali76Boutique Compressor Pedal unique is the Dry Blend control, which lets you mix your dry signal back in with your compressed guitar tone for true parallel compression. An indispensable studio recording technique, parallel compression gives you all of the tone thickening and increased sensitivity of the Cali76, while keeping hold of the natural dynamic expression in your playing. It’s the ultimate in transparent compression and sustain. By blending your “honest” guitar tone together with more subtle compression, you can also create the kind of three-dimensional, sparkling tone that you’re used to hearing on records. A single combined Attack/Release control takes care of these often misunderstood parameters, guiding you through the most useful combinations while avoiding the less useful ones. Add in a simple high/low ratio switch and you get tons of flexibility without the complexity. The ratio switch provides 4:1 and 20:1 settings. 4:1 tends to work best on guitars equipped with humbuckers, as well as bass guitars. The higher ratio setting on the Cali76-C is great for creating pronounced compression effects, such as a country-style squash.
The Cali76 has been reported to be used by Dave Gilmour of Pink Floyd. Like all of the Origin Compact Series pedals, the Cali76 Compact features high-current, discrete, Class-A circuitry for transparent, low-noise performance plus a circuit design using only the best of modern components.

About Compressor Guitar Effect Pedals
A compressor pedal is most commonly used to enhance the sound of a clean guitar making the notes last longer and also suppressing sharp or loud notes, hence compressing them in to a set level making the sound smoother. Notes that are played with a clean guitar tone often lack sustain and begin to decay quickly after the guitar string is plucked. Using a compression pedal will also extend the life of the guitar note by raising the volume as it decays, and sometimes they are mixed together as compressor pedal and sustain pedal, squashing the loud notes and boosting the quiet notes. A compressor pedal, when used correctly is a valuable piece of equipment and is often found on most guitar player pedal boards. There are a wide range of compressor effect pedals on the market from a large number of well known manufacturers. Check out popular examples of these pedals by leading companies like Fender The Bends Compressor, and the Pigtronix Philosophers Tone. Cheaper models to consider are the Caline Hot Mushroom Compressor and the Donner Ultimate Compressor which do a job.
There are a wide range of boutique compressor effect pedals to choose from as well, however these are generally hand made and can be costly for instance check out the the Red Witch Seven Sisters Grace Compressor made by boutique effect pedal manufacturer Red Witch and the Keeley KCPro Compressor plus the MXR Dyna Comp. Expensive but they are the choice of professional guitar players so must be good. Review the full range of compressor guitar effect pedals.
