The Hubcap Speaker Grill

Hubcap
Hubcap on Pony Amp

Have you ever noticed that all guitar speakers are highly directional? Stand directly in front of any amp, with your ears at speaker level, and you’ll get blasted by treble. Walk two steps to the right or left and it sounds like a blanket just got thrown over your amp. Not so with the Hubcap, originally designed for the Visual Sound Workhorse amps.

The Hubcap blocks those nasty ice-pick highs from the center of every guitar speaker and takes all the good full range sound and spreads it out almost 180 degrees. Yes, it really does that. Once you’ve tried it, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.

You may have to remove your existing grill cloth or cut a 3″ cross pattern in the center of the grill cloth in order for the Hubcap to fit over the speaker, as there is a cone protruding from the back of the Hubcap.

I purchased a Route 66 pedal from your Italian distributor, those great guys at G&E Musiclab. I write you to say how really happy this pedal has made me. I play a Fender Strat and an Italian guitar, Eko Cobra, equipped with two Seymour Duncan P90’s. My amp is a 1965 Fender Twin Reverb. I now have a wonderful sound and I wanted to share this with you and say thanks a lot! – Marco M. (Italy)

Hey Guys, just wanted to let you know that I love the products you are putting on the market. I have run a Route 66 and Drive Train for a sew years and love the tone and quailty of the pedals. But in the last month I pick up a tap delay and my mind has been blown. This is the best pedal I have heard hands down. Its consistent all the way thru the repeats and has great fetures. I seriously believe you could use the slongan “The only pedal that makes you sound like a better guitar player than you really are” on this thing. This is an AMAZING pedal!!!. I can see myself running anything but Truetone products anymore. Keep up the GREAT work. Josh

Thank you Bob Weil and all the staff at Truetone. I finally got around to trying the 1Spot combo I won in the 50K giveaway and it is the BEST POWER SUPPLY EVER! Not only does it power all my pedals, but most importantly, it didn’t add any extra noise to the line. If I hadn’t known the 1Spot was connected, I would have thought I was running all my pedals on batteries like I’ve been forced to for the past few years. I have an older house, and as such the ground in the wiring is not always done the way it should be, resulting in a lot of noise in my rig. The 1Spot is the first power supply that did not add extra noise to my rig. I cannot thank you guys enough. One of my pet peeves is a noisy rig and while I’ve learned to accept a certain amount of noise because it will cost me thousands of dollars and require gutting the walls of my house, the one aspect I could control is the noise added by a crappy power supply – The 1Spot will be part of my rig permanently. 🙂 -Tyler Godfrey

Your Visual Volume is without a doubt the best active volume pedal out there! Can’t tell you how handy it has been as pure-sounding signal splitter too! Thanks for a solid, long-throw volume that keeps kicking butt! – Justin Oscar Cary via Facebook

I thought I would share this little experience with you. When I was considering a new overdrive pedal to place in my rig, I went to a music store in Nashville (one of the big stores) to try out the Jekyll & Hyde. I actually sat down with the Jekyll & Hyde and the handwired Ibanez TS808(retail $349), Fender Strat and a Fender Twin. I set both of them as close as I possibly could to sound the same, gain, EQ, etc. As people would walk by I would play a riff on each and ask them to tell me which one they liked the best. After 15 people I stopped. All 15 picked the Jekyll & Hyde pedal. Needless to say, I had done decided on the J&H anyway, but it is reassuring to know other people like it too. Thanks again for a great overdrive…. – Dale
