Subject: RE: Help: Harmonica Effects Anyone?
You could try a Chorus box for times when you're playing clean single note breaks. Only you can tell whether it works for you.

The only other point you might consider concerns the output from your mic when you're playing hard. This creates a moderately high signal voltage which MAY overload the input into your mixer or mixer/amp causing uncontrollable distortion. There are a lot of variables here but one of the better answers is to use a mixer which lets you adjust the sensitivity of the input channel in your mixer. You then have the choice of selectively adding distortion if you wish - better to always start with a clean sound which you can then experiment with.

For a good rich sound it's hard to beat a good quality chromatic harp, but for the most part a diatonic harp is the way to go for blues playing.
