I've stumbled upon the Cali76, I hadn't noticed them before and now it seems I can't go on without one. Having an 1176 on my board does seem appealing. I use my compressor a lot, currently a Marshall ED-1. I always thought I could do better. I'll have to see how poor I am after Christmas. Luckily I have quite a few gigs. They're not cheap. Especially the big one, which of course 'sounds better' cos it's bigger right?
