All the functionality and fun of a traditional accordion in a smaller, digitally enhanced package
Roland's revolutionary V-Accordion has profoundly changed the musical world since its debut in 2004. As the digital-modeling concept has grown in popularity around the world, so too has the need for more V-Accordion models. Embodying the digital advantages of the flagship, the ultra-light, smaller sized FR-1 (piano style) or FR-1B (Button type) puts V-Accordion is perfect for young beginners and music schools. Its compact, yet uncompromising sound quality, makes it ideal for stage performers and keyboardists too. It has a long battery life (uses 8 x "AA" type 2000mAH Ni-MH batteries) to provide you with over five hours of performance per pack.
Make Your FR-1/1B Unique
These accordions come with six variations of inlay sheets that enable you to change the appearance of yours from time to time. You can also create your own custom-designed inlay sheets using an A4 PC printer, or by using any kind of commercially designed paper.
Play Anytime and Anywhere
With high-quality earphones included in the FR-1/FR-1B package, this silent accordion is extremely convenient for practicing at night and without disturbing your family or neighbors.
Advanced Musical Expression
With the FR-1/1B, you can simulate up to seven different accordions. With the innovative four Organ presets (Harmonic Bar) and rotary effect, you can produce amazing organ sounds as well. You can even play your own beats, adding drums with the bass and chord buttons.
