All the functionality and fun of a traditional accordion in a smaller, digitally enhanced package

The revolutionary Roland V-Accordion FR-1 (piano style) or FR-1B (button type) is perfect for young beginners and music schools, yet its uncompromising sound quality makes it ideal for stage performers and keyboardists too.

The ultra-light, smaller sized accordion has a long battery life (uses 8 x "AA" type 2000mAH Ni-MH batteries) to provide you with over 5 hours of performance per pack.

Make Your FR-1/1B Unique
Roland V-Accordions come with 6 variations of inlay sheets that enable you to change the appearance of yours whenever you like. You can also create your own custom-designed inlay sheets using your printer and A4 sized paper 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 the V-Accordion is extremely convenient for practicing at night and without disturbing your family or neighbors.

Advanced Musical Expression
With the Roland FR-1/1B, you can simulate up to 7 different accordions. With the innovative 4 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.

Fantastic Instrument.


from Undisclosed

Comments about Roland FR-1 V-Accordion Piano or Button Type:

This is a fantastic instrument. We have two in the family. I own the chromatic button version and my wife owns the piano version. Like any electronic instrument, it must be connected to a proper audio amplifier/speaker system, and of course the volume and sound quality that you get depends on the characteristics of that system. Given a proper audio system, the sampled sound quality from the FR-1 is impressive. The various accordion sounds are very authentic. The orchestral clarinet and sax are award winning. The organ sounds are absolutely beautiful. It even has percussion sounds. As a beginner level, amateur musician, I especially like the ease of use of the FR-1. All the features are straightforward and easy to use, and the default configuration is appropriate for all of my playing. A simple search on YouTube will reveal plenty of competent people at all performance levels, from world class virtuosos like Ludovic Beier to average beginners like myself. I especially like the bellows action and dynamic performance of the FR-1. The FR-1 is a very economical opportunity to experience the world of electronic accordions.
