One thing I've found is that a lot of the wah sounds can be achieved with just the bottleneck - hardly any need for the peddle at all.

It made it sound somewhat like a B3 which blended well with the real B3 on the cut. Wah-Wahs work OK but you can really get a better sound doing it with your mouth.
As for Popper, I have to put in my 2 cents worth. I was blessed to have had a chance to jam with him in New Orleans. Not only is a super nice guy but he is a very accomplished harp player. He's definitely known for his "Steve Vi" type style but he can bend with the best of them. Honestly, I wish he would do a pure blues CD to dispell all the detractors. He really is very good.

Harp doesn't distortion pedals if you use mikes like Astatic JT30's or a Green Bullet into an old tube amp. If you have to have that MUCH distortion, it's usually the sign of a player who's too lazy to get their acoustic chops and tone together first, and having it that distorted, you lose dynamic touch because your getting oversaturated to the point of being heavily compressed, and along with this, the articulation and intonation suffers BADLY!!! This comes from 30 years worth of professional harp playing experience.

It sounds like you're more into the John Popper Blues Traveler thing which ain't even remotely close to being blues.
