I have dealt with Gregg Hopkins at Vintage Amp Restoration for over a
year now and I can highly recommend his work. He has reconed speakers,
made me a reproduction Vibroverb cabinet, two Super Reverb baffleboards,
recovered and regrilled a blonde Tremolux, made a couple of repro back
panels for a Fender and Ampeg, and done a bunch of cosmetic work on some
Ampegs, etc.

The quality of his work is top notch, his prices reasonable and he is
very, very easy to work with (meaning he’ll do whatever you want). I
generally want EXACT reproductions and Gregg comes through everytime.
His attention to detail is scary.

You can contact Gregg by e-mail: vintageam–(at)– or call him at

Good luck!



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.

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.
