Already legendary amongst slide players, the Origin Effects SlideRIG delivers clean Infinite Sustain in true Little Feat fashion.

In the studio, Lowell George achieved his peerless slide guitar tone by playing through a pair of 1176 compressors chained together. The original SlideRIG pedal gave guitarists a much more affordable way of replicating this tone, in a portable format you can take to the gig.

With the SlideRIG Compact, we’ve takes things a step further, creating a pedal that offers the same cascaded 1176-style compression and extended, tonally transparent sustain, but with a drastically reduced footprint and simplified, user-friendly controls that make dialing in the desired tone a breeze.

More flexible than ever, the SlideRIG Compact gives you access to conventional single-stage compression, as well as the SlideRIG’s trademark dual-stage compression. And the choice is not simply either/or – you can now blend the two!

The single Blend knob determines the balance of signals passed to the output from the single- and dual-stage compression circuits. Meanwhile, a revised gain structure, in conjunction with a high-current, low noise preamp, allows for greater control over compression levels using the Input knob.

The original SlideRIG is a compressor like no other, and not just because of its unique dual-chained design. Featuring discrete Class-A circuitry that’s true to the topology and design philosophy of the original 1176, the SlideRIG achieves the seemingly impossible by delivering not only more squash and sustain than any other compressor pedal but lower noise and greater tonal transparency too.

With the SlideRIG Compact, we set out to provide the same performance and unique features as the original in a pedal that was simpler to use and a third of the size. However, just because the SlideRIG Compact will fit on even the most congested of pedalboards, that doesn’t mean this is just a run-of-the-mill stompbox.

Like all of our Compact Series pedals, the SlideRig Compact features high-current, discrete, Class-A circuitry for transparent, low-noise performance. We’ve taken a no-compromise approach to the circuit design using only the best of modern components.
