I get it Jeff! But this is what happens to your pottery studio when either 1. Your music studio is a guest bedroom. or 2. You don't own a Roland for that quiet practice at 1:00 am.Ah yes, as Tom pointed out, AAS is rampant around here. There is no known cure, since (as the saying goes) the optimal number of accordions is N + 1, where N = your current number of accordions.
My first accordion was similar. They must've churned those narrow-key, 120-bass, LM accordions out by the truckload back in the day ('50s & '60s, I believe). They're all over the used market, it seems.
And, like you, I found myself quickly realizing I needed that MM sound!
I'm lucky to be married to a fellow musician who "gets it". But I think every spouse has their own expensive and/or space-consuming potential hobby. You just have to find and encourage whatever that is for yours. Then neither can point the finger at the other!
"Um, is that another accordion case piled behind the couch, dear?"
"Oh, why yes it is. Well there wasn't room for it in the spare bedroom, what with your new pottery wheel..."
