Origin Effects Cali76-TX Compressor



TRANSFORMER OPTION

High-Current "Saturated Iron" Tones, with Professional Connectivity!

The Cali76-TX is a premium-quality, 1960's style "FET" compressor, inspired by the legendary "Urei 1176".

"It's that good, and way more than a guitar pedal." - Jerry Playle, session guitarist/producer.

TONAL BENEFITS

The Cali76 Transformer-Option works to provide the user with additional tone-options and connectivity.

This option brings things even closer to the original studio-classic by incorporating a custom iron-core output transformer (other tx options available) driven by a high-urrent Class-A transistor stage.

"High" and "Low Gain" modes of operation allow the transformer to be pushed into saturation for subtle harmonic generation all the way to all-out grunge!

CONNECTIVITY

The Cali76 Transformer-Option features dedicated "Amplifier" and "Line/DI" outputs. The "Line/DI" is fully balanced and electronically isolated. The outputs are capable of driving the longest of cable runs and will integrate with any professional studio set-up, vintage or modern!

A ground-lift switch quickly fixes any rogue "hums" caused by annoying ground-loop interactions.

TRANSFORMER OPTIONS

We offer two types of transformer. Our custom iron-core transformer or a top-of-the-line Lundahl (at an additional cost). Our preference is for the custom iron-core transformer which saturates nicely in "High-Gain" mode. The Lundahl is linear through and through, contributing no "core saturation"!!!

TECHNICAL FEATURES

  • Class-A discrete output-amplifier driving transformer
  • Dual, low-impedance outputs (via audio transformer)
  • Unbalanced instrument-level output
  • Balanced Line-DI output
  • Ground-lift function to eliminate ground induced hum
  • Gain-switch adjusts transformer saturation
  • Auto-Shutdown - preserves battery operation
  • PSU Spec. Min: 13mA @ 9V / 72mA @ 18V
  • Suggested PSU Rating: 200mA for optimum start-up
