“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 HubBub utilizes a bundled Dual TRS/TS Cable for the guitar to HubBub connection and connects your pedal chain, amp, OBEL cable, and guitar cable in one location. No more window washer harness plus The HubBub’s hardwired split of the stereo OBEL cable to the mono Send and Return jacks, produces a cleaner, clearer and more reliable signal than the “Y” cable. The Dual TRS/TS Cable consists of: 2x 12′ Mogami Black Cables (1 TRS stereo & 1 TS mono) both with one straight and one rt angle Black Neutrix Plug (most popular configuration) Bundled in a FlexoPet expandable sleeve and secured with Double Layered Adhesive Lined Shrink Wrap for easy cable management and neat appearance. The Hub Bub is made by Godfrey Daniels Guitar Works.

What does OBEL stand for?

OBEL stands for On-Board Effects Loop. It is a wiring design inside the guitar which uses a separate 1/4" stereo jack to allow the direct output from the pickups to go to effects pedals and then back into the guitar for post-effects volume control. The purpose of the OBEL is to allow for volume adjustments on the guitar after being processed by effects. You may notice that distortion and envelope filters respond differently with volume adjustments on a standard electric guitar. Using an OBEL allows for consistent response from your effects pedals/processors at any guitar volume.

Below is an example showing the PHRED instruments Wolph guitar connected to an amp and effects chain with the OBEL.

In this example, the Wolph guitar has a mono guitar cable plugged directly into the guitar amp.  The other guitar cable is a stereo 1/4" guitar cable that plugs into a Hard Truckers Junction Box (SP-1 'Y' Junction Box), other junction boxes will work as well.  At the send of the junction box, one mono guitar patch cable plugs into the input of the first effect in the pedal chain (Mutron III).  The effects chain uses standard guitar patch cables to connect each effect.  The output of the last effects pedal connects to the return of the junction box.  The OBEL bypass mini-toggle is used to either bypass or use the effects loop.

What is required to use the OBEL?

We recommend to use a junction box with a stereo 1/4" guitar cable to connect the guitar to a junction box (a stereo Y-cable can be used instead). A junction box looks like an effects pedal.  It has a 1/4" stereo input jack on one side, which is where the stereo guitar cable from the guitar's OBEL jack plugs into.  The other side of the junction box has 2 mono 1/4" jacks.  One of those jacks is a send to the input of your effects the other is a return from the output of your effects.  Using one mono guitar fx patch cable, connect the send from the junction box into the input of your first effect pedal, and the the return from the junction box plugs into the output of your last effects pedal in the chain.

Can an OBEL equipped guitar be plugged in like a standard electric guitar with one cable using just the mono guitar output?

Yes, you do not have to use the OBEL in order to plug in your guitar to your effects.  You can simply bypass the OBEL using the OBEL bypass mini-toggle switch on the guitar and use the guitar as a standard electric guitar with your effect pedals plugged in-line between your guitar and amp.

Using a HubBub Junction Box with an OBEL Equipped Guitar (Video)

Credit for coming up with this idea is attributed to Jerry Garcia, and the term OBEL, or On Board Effects Loop is widely used to describe a guitar that has this optional feature. Guitars that have an OBEL also have the ability to bypass the effects loop, or not use it at all.
