A bit late to the party over this, but I've got a EH Hum Debugger and can confirm it does work. It does 'exactly' what it claims to do, the 60hz hum is completely eliminated here, even using single coils with as much distortion as I can throw at them.

The only drawback that I can see/hear, is that it also introduces a slight 'echo' effect into the signal path, virtually unnoticable thro' monitors, but plain to hear thro' headphones. This probably makes it better for chords and riffs rather than lead work, but even then the 'echo' would likely go unheard in a mix.

I think I'm right in saying it's a notch filter, but whatever the magic is, it works.
