The ace in the hole 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 - not coming out of your amp!
