    I'm converting this nifty little Silvertone amp into a guitar amp.

    Can't figure where in the circuit I should place an interrupting jack for my tremolo footswitch.

    Lifting the connection to ground for any of the 3 resistors in the oscillator (R19, R20, R21) should kill it. I think the trick here is you want to lift those grounds without affecting the cathode grounds for V1B and V2B.

    Maybe give R21 it's own connection to ground and put the kill switch between R21 and ground? Whichever one makes the most sense, depending on the layout.
