3. The English, Anglo and Duet concertinas differ in several ways. The English concertina has a wider range of notes and a more complex fingering system, making it suitable for classical music. The Anglo concertina has a diatonic scale and is commonly used in traditional Irish and English folk music. The Duet concertina has a chromatic scale and allows for more complex harmonies, making it popular in classical and jazz music.
