Origin Effects Cali76 Compact Bass

The Cali76 Compact Bass delivers natural, musical compression exactly where you want it, letting the lower strings
breathe for more dynamic transfer and greater perceived girth.
In addition to this pedal’s low-noise circuitry and fast, musical FET response, the Cali76 Compact Bass features a variable-frequency high-pass filter placed in the compressor’s side-chain. With the HPF control dialled in, the compression ratio effectively becomes frequency dependent. The low strings come back to life, adopting an extra weightiness, power and dynamic response, while the higher strings are strictly controlled, preventing slapped and popped notes from leaping out of the mix.

- Studio-grade FET compressor optimised for bass guitar and extended range instruments.
