HubBub

“The HubBub” – The world’s first Dual Mode Cable Hub exclusively designed for OBEL equipped guitars. Built in a standard MXR style single aluminum box, The HubBub is hand wired using Switchcraft jacks. Just flip the toggle switch to the right, and the HubBub routes the signal from your OBEL equipped guitar thru your pedals, back to your guitar volume/tone controls and out to your amp. Flip the toggle to the left, and the The HubBub bypasses the OBEL circuit and routes a traditional signal from the guitar thru your effects and out to your amp. The HubBub is a passive system so no battery or power supply is necessary. The Hub Bub is made by Godfrey Daniels Guitar Works.
