    Roxy’s Instructional DVD’s are excellent

    Leon makes an easy to understand, thorough, step by step presentation that covers all important points…….

    I was up to speed in just a couple of hours, playing on board accordion features….. Never could have done that just following the owners manual…..

    I’m 1/2 way through disk 2, after approx 3 weeks, and capable of playing my first gig, confirmed for 5 weeks after receipt of my Roland F R 3…….

    Great job, Leon and Rose at Roxy’s……

    First, I’ve purchased a Roland FR-7X and a Roland FR-3X from Roxy’s Music Store, and could not be more pleased with the service; they are a class act and it has been a pleasure to do business with them. Re: the 3 part instructional DVD series, it is especially helpful in explaining “the why”, thus creating a level of understanding that goes well beyond just knowing how to make the FR 3X work. What this does is allow the user to better adopt his or her own style to the instrument, which makes for a better musician. Creating this understanding is one of many shortcomings of the instruction booklet that Roland includes with each V-accordion. Leon does a great job explaining the FR 3X, and any user would benefit from this DVD series.

    I cannot say enough about this instructional DVD. Thank you Leon. As an FR3X owner of several years, and music teacher of several decades, I thought I knew the instrument. Boy, was I wrong. As any FR3X owner knows, certain features require obscure and inconvenient button selections. For example, to turn on orchestral sounds on the bass note buttons, I must press and hold down three register buttons simultaneously, followed by another register button selection for the particular sound that I want. To turn on percussion sounds I must press the Organ/Orchestra and #6 Register buttons simultaneously. Worse, to select the particular drum patch that I want I must change the instrument’s internal parameters. As a result of these inconveniences, I have not made much use of these features. If I ever did use them, I would select them before starting the song, and then play the entire song using those features throughout. I was not able to turn on and turn off such features quickly, on the fly, in the middle of playing a song. With Roxy’s DVD that’s all changed. With a feature called User Program I can now conveniently and quickly switch between all of these complex features in the middle of a song, in the same manner as different reed combinations are switchable on an acoustic accordion. Not only that, but by taking advantage of the USB flash drive I can customize the register buttons for each and every song that I play. I had seen the User Program feature in the owner’s manual, but I admit that I never realized how it could be used to customize the instrument to play different songs. Now for the first time I can use the full range of instrument features in my performances. I feel like Glenn Miller, orchestrating songs to contain a variety of different sounds. I can even switch on and off Dual Mode in the middle of a song. Even more amazing, until now I always thought that my FR3X was limited to 10 orchestral sounds. Roxy’s DVD made me realize that by using Set Editor software that is free from Roland, I can access 42 extra orchestral sounds, sounds that I didn’t even know about. No mention is made of them in the Owner’s Manual. It turns out that with these new hidden sounds my FR3X has the very same orchestral sound capability as the FR7X. It even has a banjo. Amazing. Every FR3X owner needs to see this DVD. Roxy’s calls it a Getting Started” DVD. I think it should be called “Master Class”.

    I didn’t realize how much I was missing until I bought the FR3x DVDs. There is so much that the owner’s manual does not mention. This is my first experience with an electronic accordion. It is a complex instrument and takes time, study and Leon’s DVDs to learn the 3x. Leon makes this simple and fun. Leon did a great job creating these videos. Thank you also for the friendly store assistance.

    I just recently purchased an FR-3X but have played a FR-7X for about 1-1/2 years.
    Although FR-3X is not as sophisticated as 7X it can be comparable to 7X with the help of Roxys 3 DVD Set PLUS at 7 LBS. lighter a much easier handling box.
    Leon does outstanding job of spreading a wealth of information over 3 DVD’s which makes comprehension of so much information much easier than 3X manual information and again Leon provides so much “inside” info and help. Truly a very worth while purchase and cost for DVD set.

    This is my first accordion purchase since I quit playing accordion fifty-two years ago, and without these DVD’s I would be playing this instrument like a very expensive acoustic accordion. Leon is very patient and complete in his explanations so that I am empowered to explore and venture into the workings of the V accordion, without having to try to understand a manual. I am so glad that I saw Leon’s video from Roxy’s comparing the Roland to the acoustic accordion, and Rose is a real sweet heart to talk to and to deal with. Leon is the “Mr. Wizard” of technical translation; and I would encourage anyone purchasing a FR-3X or FR-1X or who already owns either model,to get the “getting started series” and learn something that you really need to further enjoy your accordion. Thank you, Rose for producing these DVD’s.

    Just a little note to thank you for your help via the “Getting started videos”. I received the set a couple of days ago and after having viewed them once, the difference it made was amazing. Up until now I was wondering if I had made a bad mistake in purchasing the FR3x and I kept going back to my old faithful 120 bass Sonola. I have also bought a BK7m and cannot make much of a fist of working with it and the FR3x. So I immediately ordered your Getting Started with the FR3x & BK7m, which if it is as good and effective as the one I have, it will have me aiming for Carnegie Hall.

    Thank you so much for your helpful DVDs

    Leon is absolutely the best. Many people have knowledge, but Leon knows how to tell you about it. He is a great teacher. It is like having your own personal teacher. I got these in the mail yesterday and I listened to all 3 CDs immediately. That is 4 1/2 hours of great instruction. I still have to listen to the instructions on the flash drive. He starts off from the beginning, and talks about battery back up, creating a harness for all the cables into the bottom of the accordion, all the buttons, etc. He covers stuff you need to know. He does a great job telling about the factory settings. He covers Parameters and setting Parameters, User Sets, User Programs. Leon covers everything you want to know. This is the instruction you are looking for. I believe this is the best instructions out there. I have seen YouTube instructions on the FR-3X that are very hard to follow. The guy is pushing buttons while talking about something else. Very frustrating. Like I said, Leon is a teacher and easy to follow. He has a great understanding of accordions and also the FR-3X from top to bottom!
