Roland FR-1 Digital Accordion

2009 NAMM Show: Roland introduced the FR-1 V-Accordion, the latest addition to its V-Accordion line. The FR-1 puts digital modeling technology in a traditional accordion design.

The FR-1 is lightweight, with a compact frame that weighs only twelve pounds. With the FR-1, players can simulate up to seven different distinct accordions, access four different organ presets with rotary effect, and play along with a variety of beats by adding drum sounds to the bass and chord buttons.

With the included earphones and five hours of estimated battery time, players can practice the FR-1 anywhere, anytime. Plug directly into an external sound source like the MOBILE CUBE Battery Powered Stereo Amplifier or R-09HR Digital Recorder, or use the headphone output for silent practice.

With six different inlay sheets, owners can customize the appearance of the FR-1 to suit their own personal style. Players can even create their own custom design inlays using their computer and printer.

The new FR-1 V-Accordion will be available in both piano (FR-1) and button (FR-1b) types.
