Hi,

One issue which musicians face is the expense related to their
instruments. In my case, I spent $2,235 for my accordion in 1977.
While it has done a wonderful job for me over the years, I will need
to replace it within the next few years. What I have seen so far
suggests that I will need to spend anywhere between $6,000-$10,000 to
replace it. Furthermore, I will likely need to fly somewhere to buy
it as few music stores carry any accordions. I expect this is less
true for fiddlers, but pianos or electronic keyboards probably
aren't cheap either.

Now why would anyone want to spend that kind of money for a dinosaur
of an instrument is beyond me :)....
