Dan Torres Engineering, 1630 Palm Ave, San Mateo, CA 94402; (415) 571-6887
has kits (fairly cheap) that claim will get your tremelo up and working
better than ever. These folks specialize in Fender amp mods and repairs
and I’ve used their services, good stuff and recommended. Call them, you
can talk to Dan about your problem and thay’ll send you a free
catalog/information with schemes about your circuit etc. Good luck.

I posted this in public as I highly recommend Torres for other Fender
enthusiasts as well, get their catalog, it’s free. At the very least it’s
fun reading and is a source for tubes, parts, information etc.

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 JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.

Harp Tab

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.
