The Cali76 Compact Bass is an all-analogue recreation of the legendary Urei 1176 studio compressor, specifically engineered for bass guitar and low frequency instruments. This studio-grade FET compressor uses Class-A, low-noise circuitry and dedicated controls for side-chain filtering and parallel compression, bringing your favourite recorded bass tones to your pedalboard.
With huge low-end clarity with a control set designed with bass guitarists in mind, the Cali76 Compact Bass gives you the transparency and feel of a world-class compressor, with enough precision and dynamic control to honour its studio heritage.

Look at any high-end studio and you’ll find at least one 1176 compressor. This iconic piece of outboard gear is the secret behind the guitar tone on many classic recordings. Inspired by the design topology and philosophy of the original, the Cali76 Compact Bass delivers the same natural, musical compression in a compact, stage-friendly pedal. After all, why should high quality compression be confined to the recording studio?
Mix your Dry signal in with your compressed tone for true parallel compression. An indispensable studio recording technique, parallel compression gives you thick compressed tone and increased sensitivity while retaining the natural dynamic expression of your playing.
The Cali76 Compact Bass’s HPF control gives you access to another powerful studio technique. Using a variable high-pass filter on the compressor’s sidechain input, this control prevents the compressor from being overwhelmed by all the low-end in a bass guitar signal, which can result in excessive compression. By allowing the pedal to react to the dynamics in the high end, the Cali76 Compact Bass has a much more natural feel on lower notes, while higher notes are tightly controlled, keeping slapping and picking from leaping out of the mix.
A single combined Attack/Release control provides a continuous sweep of useful settings while Individual controls for Ratio, HPF, Input and Output level offer a degree of control not normally seen on a pedal compressor. Tailor your sound from transparent transient control to flat-out limiting and monster sustain. The rugged jewel lamp houses an intuitive three-colour gain reduction meter, giving easy-to-read feedback from a distance.
Housed in a hand polished, brushed stainless steel enclosure and furnished with aluminium controls, Neutrik jack sockets and heavy-duty footswitch, the Cali76 Compact Bass is equally at home on the road and in the studio.
