You most certainly can get a D130 reconed. I’ve done it three times!!
All within the last 6 months (3 different speakers, mind you). Tip: Get
it reconed using a kapton form voice coil (edge-wound, of course), and a
paper dome instead of that aluminum dome. The kapton coil will handle
about 200 Watts, and the paper dome gets rid of the harsh high end. I’ve
done this, it sounds great, and it won’t blow.



Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.

A collection of songs and riffs that I’ve worked out over the years, plus some libraries of stuff I’ve converted to tablature. I’ve included most of the notes and instructions that helped me when I was learning to play blues harmonica.
