    Carroll C#/G# Anglo concertina (small model)

    Why would anyone pay more for a 3 year old instrument than you can buy it new? Are you banking(pun) on someone not wanting to wait?

    B to C#

    Almost always do it that way with a Jeffries set up. Wheatstone you are forced to do it the other way so as to not use the same finger twice in a row with a finger jump.

    tuning choice for an anglo

    F and Gmin are not a problem on the C/G in fact they sound quite nice.

    For Irish so you can play in sessions the C/G is the one to get.

    starting anglo concertina

    I have to disagree: The Levy and Coover books are not really set up for playing in the "Irish" style but more toward the "English" I am not familiar with the "Concertina Diaries" but did look over the free pages and disagree with some of the fingering choices but those choices can be a very personable thing. . The Online Academy of music is a good start and if you could attend a Noel Hill class or workshop that would get you going in the right direction.
