I have two....

A Weltmeister 48/34
An El Cheapo D/G Melodeon.

I tried the "shoes" argument many years ago but with reference to more guitars (at the time I had about 7 plus a couple of banjos)...It didn't work.
I was informed that shoes were an essential of life, an eighth guitar really was not. In the end I had to resort to bribery...every woman has her price!(sexist comment struck thru' in case PC Police are watching.)

I have 3 (after selling my melodeon) - my 32 bass weltmeister, my shiny lovely wonderful 120 bass hohner and my rubbish 120 bass voshkod which still lives in Estonia.
32 bass Weltmeister PA, 120 bass Voskhod PA (Soviet, it's in Estonia), 120 bass Hohner Polyphonic 400 PA

According to my SWMBO, I own too many.

In terms of CBA, I have 4 and plan to keep all of them. I don't plan to add any in foreseeable future.

The Fisitalia 46.45 TC just joined the group yesterday from Russ, a member here (but I found his listing on another forum). I told my SWMBO that I was out looking for a used Toyota Camry, and found a pre-owned Lexus LS 460 8-) {} :b

I have an Accordiana PA (41/120 LMM) that will go to my brother-in-law.

I also have a Roland FR-3s, I'm thinking of selling it.

SWMBO....? Okay here's a guess.............Sweet Wife My Beloved Own/Other (which is probably too needy and obvious)

Second Wind Makes Bellows Operate (just for an accordion reference)

SWMBO (pronouced "swim-bo"): She Who Must Be Obeyed.

"The term originates from the H. Rider Haggard novel, "She" (first published 1886). The character Ayesha, known as She-who-must-be-obeyed, the Queen of Death, the White Goddess,of the lost city of Kôr who rules her kingdom with terror, She is the very image of the Femme Fatale. To disobey her or to scorn her is to earn & receive instantaneous death."

Ah yes....I am familiar with that novel....and the Film.......and the concept.

I too have one of these....though I did not realise that this title was appended......I shall be more thoughtful in future....

Cheers

I seem to be one of the few people on here who has a Other Half with similar instrument acquisition habits. The Husband has 4 melodeons (only one of which is in playable condition) and a 120-bass Chiusaroli piano accordion; he possibly owns the Weltme CBA as well (it's difficult to establish clear rules of ownership sometimes) or the Hohner Tango. Plus some wrecks for spare parts.

Our household total of squeezeboxes (not including the complete wrecks, nor the ones in The Husband's custody for repairs) is therefore at least TWELVE...
