    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

    PERFECT FOR STUDENTS AND PROS

    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.

    PLAY ANYTIME, ANYWHERE

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

    ADVANCED MUSICAL EXPRESSION

    With the FR-1xb 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-1xb also includes onboard manual drum/percussion sounds that can be played with the bass and chord buttons!

    USB MEMORY PORT AND USB COMPUTER PORT ON BOARD

    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.

    FASTER RESPONSE AND HIGHER SENSITIVITY

    Thanks to Roland’s sound generator that is optimized for Accordion performance, the FR-1xb 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.

    SET EDITOR SOFTWARE

    A dedicated software program allows you to create a dedicated User Set for the FR-1xb 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-1xb.

    A headphone socket was a must to get an accordion past the wife so a Roland V accordion was the choice. The small form factor and light weight of the FR-1xB was another big factor. Have played a cheap chinese piano accordion in the past but it was heavy and sounded asthmatic with a poor sound, while purists might say Rolands aren't the same sound as accoustic this small Roland is in a very different league to my chinese one, sounds great and a lot of variety in the sound. Build quality far superior too. Battery life is good. Opted for BCA over PA as more notes in same size and getting older with short fingers less of a stretch, it feels more natural than PA and finding it easier than the PA to find the notes. Main difference is bellows, play as many notes as you like you don't need to push and pull quicker but you can still get expression from them. You can also turn off the bellows so you can just play, great for concentrating on ********* and as I get ever older that might be a permanent switch. Hope durability of the electronics will be good, too soon to say.

    Mr. Paul Denniss10th Aug 2019

    This accordion has a wealth of sounds which can be tweaked and adjusted.....but at the end of the day sound keyboardy, so if an truly authentic accordion experience is what you are after this probably isn’t for you. However, the options to connect to other equipment, backing modules, PA, recording equipment etc open up a whole new world of possibilities. I bought it because not everyone in my house appreciates my playing and I want to stay married so the earphone socket is worth it’s weight in gold! In summary, perfect for practicing at ungodly hours but I’m still not convinced I want to gig with it
