The Hubcap Speaker Grill

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.

Fan Mail

Dear Mr. Weil, I am the proud owner of your Jekyll & Hyde pedal for a couple of days now and couldn’t be happier with the sound it produces. My friend bought it in Germany and brought it to me. If you ever make a Fuzz pedal, I’ll buy it immediately. Until then… my setup is now complete and I’m happy! Oh yes, the 1 SPOT works flawlessly, too. – Igor M. (Serbia and Montenegro)

“Just got my Jekyll and Hyde out of the box. By far the BEST distortion/overdrive ever. Haven’t even really had that much time to tweak it and it already sounds 100 times better than any pedal I’ve ever spent hours and hours tweaking. I think I just became brand loyal.”   – Blake T.

From an interview with Johnny Lang in the September/October 2006 issue of Christian Musician Magazine:
CM: Are you using any kind of pedals? JL: Yeah, I use a Route 66. I think he’s a Christian. CM: That’s Bob Weil of Truetone, who makes the Route 66 analog overdrive pedal. Bob is a brother in the Lord and a good friend of this magazine. JL: Yeah, man, so I use that for my “lead sound”…

Hello, I recently sent back a broken Route 66 to be replaced or repaired. I wanted to thank you and your company for some of the most excellent customer support I’ve encountered yet. I was called back immediately and received my pedal back on the day I asked for – all with the most positive and polite demeanor. Thanks so much! I enthusiastically recommend your products to others for the quality of sound and sturdy build… but most of all for the prompt and professional attitude of your company! Many thanks! – Raleigh G.

I just thought I would drop an e-mail and let you guys know how pleased I am with your Jekyll & Hyde creation! I lead worship at a church in the San Diego area and it has always been a struggle keeping stage volumes in check, while still retaining the integrity of the tone I was after. After many modded TS9 and Blues Driver combinations, the Jekyll & Hyde does everything, especially with the channels combined. I am a single channel amp fan and this thing sings through both my Pro Junior and Reverend Hellhound. Thanks and I wish you the best of luck! – Matt
