The V-Accordion revolution continues with the new Roland FR-4xb!
The FR-4xb is the latest design in Roland’s V-Accordion series and it does not disappoint. It’s light and portable yet packed with useful features like pressure-sensing bellows, full-range onboard speakers and the same powerful sound engine as the Roland FR-8x. Choose from a wide selection of accordion sounds from around the world, control other electronic musical instruments via the MIDI connector, record your playing to a connected USB stick and share your music with the world. While the sounds and playing feel are reassuringly traditional, the Roland FR-4x is an accordion for the modern age.
The new FR-4x comes loaded with Richard Noel’s custom user programs loaded onboard. This makes finding and playing the sounds you want quick and easy. Also includes the Manu Maugain Method for Button Accordions, which is an excellent book to start learning with. We also include our “Getting Started on the FR-4x” instructional videos. This covers all you need to know about adjusting the bellows, locating the sounds you like, even creating your own user sets. These videos are currently only being made available to those who have purchased an FR-4x from Roxy’s.
