    Product Description

    V-Accordions have revolutionized the music world, and Roland has dedicated itself to the ongoing development of these amazing instruments. The FR-1x series is the newest addition to the famous V-Accordion family. These compact, lightweight models offer the same flexibility and portability as their popular FR-1 predecessors, but add significant features, including USB functionality and advanced bellows-pressure circuitry for enhanced sensitivity and precision. With new-generation speakers onboard and an expanded 7-segment/3-character display, the FR-1x piano-type and FR-1xb button-type set a powerful standard for a small lightweight accordion.

    • Full range high quality speakers on board in bass reflex box: 7 W x 2
    • USB memory port for Wave/MP3 player, new-sounds upload, data loading/saving
    • Professional look with friendly user interface and 7-segment LED
    • Standard and Free Bass modes
    • 16 Accordion Sets, 16 Orchestral sounds, four Virtual Tone Wheel presets, eight User Programs
    • Available in black or red


    Light and small, the FR-1xb is perfect for young players, music studios, and schools. They are the most compact of all V-Accordions, but cut no corners in sound quality. It’s also a perfect instrument for the professional accordionist and live performer. The FR-1xb’s battery power and onboard speakers make it ideal for the strolling accordionist. The FR-1xb is great instrument for musicians who perform musical styles such as folk, rock, roots-rock, blues, zydeco, and more.


    Enjoy instant, high-quality sound from the onboard speakers or play privately with ear buds or headphones (sold separately). The FR-1x is also the perfect instrument to travel with. Because of its compact size, it fits in the overhead storage compartment on most commercial airplanes.


    With the FR-1x series, you can access over a dozen different accordion sounds instantly. There are even orchestral instruments onboard, as well as virtual tone wheel organs with realistic rotary effects. The FR-1x also includes onboard manual drum/percussion sounds that can be played with the bass and chord buttons!


    The USB memory port allows you to easily store data such as User Program, and to upload new sounds, thanks to the USB Flash Memory. Moreover you can manage MP3 and Wave files using the optional USB Flash Memory. Their playback is a good educational application and can enhance live performances too. The USB computer port is dedicated to MIDI computer applications, such as sequencer software programs.


    Thanks to Roland’s sound generator that is optimized for Accordion performance, the FR-1x will satisfy even the most demanding accordion player. Thanks to this new technology accordionists can feel perfectly at ease when playing their music especially once they have experienced the enhanced response of this instrument.


    A dedicated software program allows you to create a dedicated User Set for the FR-1x with access to all Orchestra, Orchestra Bass and Orchestra Chord sounds. It will be available on the Roland Web site as a free download. Thanks to the USB port, it will be easy to load user sets into the FR-1x.

    Mr Stephen Groves20th Jun 2022

    Brilliant for practicing. Can play anytime day or night by adjusting the volume control. Feels very much like a 'real' accordion.

    Mr Thomas Barnes15th Mar 2022

    Roland accordions are second to none in the electronic field. This one is light, has a great sound, easy to understand and use. I use it for a mixture of classical, pop, and folk. It perfoms well in all genres. I LOVe the lightness of it - and unlike other small accordions it is also very stable on the chest so easy - and a real pleasure - to play.

    This accordion is really a master piece of electronic engineering. I have a 21 button key BC accordion. It will take me a little bit longer to adjust to playing the Roland -1x V-Accordion (piano type in black). I can assure that I am glad I bought the smaller one to practice with.

    Trusted Customer31st Jan 2021

    I intended to save up for the FR4X but an accordion friend thought it would be too big and heavy as I am in my seventies, so suggested the FR1X, he was right, I can easily play this for hours, a few more notes especially lower down the keyboard would have been a bonus

    A new instrument for me, and so far so good. The instrument is light, and easy to use, and headphones means I don’t need to worry about annoying my neighbours, which is always a plus.

    Lovely looking price of kit. Maybe not quite five stars as the bellow movement is not quite realistic with regard to number of keys being pressed. However the dynamic control is there, and above all the ability to play through headphones. Lots of electronic bells and whistles, but again perfect for learning the instrument without disturbing others.

    Mr John Drury18th Oct 2019

    Ideal small accordion light weight just right for long practice sessions. Very impressed with it.

    Mr Kevin Davis31st Jan 2019

    The FR-1x is good, but the short keyboard is a bit constraing

    Mr kenneth hand2nd Feb 2017

    Great little accordion, with some nice sounding orchestral and realistic organ sounds, being a big fan of the Theatre Organ, I feel the theatre organ voice on the accordion ,is a bonus, very pleased I decided to purchase it 10/10.
