Because chromatics don't sound like diatonics. You can't replicate that punchy,
personal diatonic sound on a chromatic (nor can you replicate that mellow, full
sound of a chromatic on a diatonic). Of course, it is my steadfast belief that
there are no such things as overblows and that everyone's making them up. I've
been playing for 15 years, including seven years professionally (OK, part-time),
and I've never, ever, ever, ever been able to play one.
