Does anyone know if there is a list of players that use the C#/D tuning and the B/C tuning, just to get the feel of what the difference is?

A few errors and oversimplifications in the attribution of the musicians' primary system, but mostly accurate.

the disclaimer being that when you look at that list, it's not the end of the story, because the difference in the boxes isn't really their [i]tunings[/i], since both boxes have identical capacity to play with the "back-and-forth" pumping bellows phrasing often called "c#/d," and identical capacity to play with the "smooth, flowing" phrasing often called "b/c." all that differs is [i]which[/i]
keys finger so as to give you which style sound, on which box. the c#/d-er only has the so-called "c#/d" sound if playing on his D row in D, G, A, and their relative minors.....

and when the b/c players on that list are playing tracks in the flat keys that fall "on the row" of a b/c (C, F, and their relative minors)....then they sound "back-and-forth," in the style stereotyped inaccurately as "c#/d."
like, the gorgeous cd "solo run" by ennis box player johnnny mccarthy, or peter carberry's box cds, solo and with his family.

if you're the person who has been asking about this on the yellow site, sorry for the repeat info....

In this clip ( http://youtu.be/VFSa_ipMNr8 ), the first tune is in G (The Caucus Reel, composed by my friend Jean Duval). You'll see that every time Joe M hits the note G, he's pushing. Ergo he's playing a B/C.
