    I've listened to several demos of the Cali76 TX, the one with the iron core transformer, and I've decided that I like what it does very much. However, I'd like to have that sound independent of the compressor. Is there anything out there that does the same sort of thing to the sound coming out that the transformer does, but without the compressor attached? I've found transformer-based distortions, but those seem to be more of dirt pedals than the subtle enhancement I'm thinking about.

    Search for the Transboost circuit. With the drive gain down it is mostly a transformer buffer.
