[Harp-L] One last chromatic question

Thanks a million to all that responded to my last question regarding chromatic. I have one last question. I am trying to get a handle on the pitch of the C Chromatic. How does it compare to the pitch of the C Diatonic? For instance, is the pitch of the 1 blow on the Chromatic higher, lower, or the same as the pitch of the 1 blow on the diatonic? The reason why I am asking is that I use a Bb diatonic (2nd position) in a couple tunes I am now playing, which is lower pitched than a C diatonic. Soooo...., if I start playing those songs on a C chromatic, even on the lower end, is the sound going to be a higher pitch than what I am playing right now? Not a huge deal, because most songs I use a C, Eb, or F harp, but I am just curious. 
  Thanks again! Mike

Now now Rick, we mustn't confuse our friend at this early stage. He 
will have trouble enough trying to figure out what I meant by 
waterfalls and stairsteps. lol
