How are the harmonicas pitched

Out of all of the keys, which is the lowest pitch? I know that G is the highest note, but I think the G harmonica is lower pitched than a C. Can anyone help me out with this?

Found this( on Suzuki website (at the end)
According to them G is lower then C.

Hope it helps

Thank you, that does help. It looks like they make perfect sense except for G.

If I read it right, leaving out flats and special tunings it would be G A B C D E F from low to high.

You can also get a low-d, that’s the lowest pitched harmonica I’ve seen.

If you think low D is the lowest, check this out, Ben Bouman on a Seydel Low Low F harmonica.

Have Fun. John

That’s AWESOME!!!

One octave lower that the Low F.
