Keeps the input and output wires far apart as possible. Use shielded wires if you can - that should fix it. Shield only one side of the wire.

Yep, start the trims at center and then adjust to taste.

The input cap can go from .01uF to 47uF - larger values more bass and different tone.  
You can increase the output cap if you want as well.
