Yes, very refreshing. I've been playing for 40+ yrs and play regularly with a band, in fact 180 nights this year! I have never used any effects. I have a Sonny Jr amp and love the "little Walter" sound but I also do several songs through a clean vocal mic using my mouth and hands to get different sounds and effects. I think too many young harp & guitar players buy & rely on effect petals and not on technique! Keep on harpin'!!!

I'm having fun experimenting with creating various harmonica effects using mouth and tongue shapings to produce (hopefully!) flanger & delay and phasing type of effects on this soundcloud file containing 3 samples.

Anyone else playing around with this sort of thing or other effects?
