New technology improves Dynamic Bellow Behavior.
With a traditional accordion, the sound is produced the vibration of the reeds that is generated by the movement of air through the bellows but the resistance of the bellows varies depending on how many notes are played and which reeds are used. In the new FR-8xb, the Dynamic Bellows Behavior automatically adjusts the air flow in the bellows based on the selected register and the number of notes played, accurately replicating the familiar and comfortable bellows feel of a real accordion.
Redesigned user interface now with color screen.
The FR-8xb features a larger brightly colored display screen that makes it easier and faster to use Three all-new programmable chin switches let you control a variety of functions such as changing registers, selecting user programs, and more, all without lifting your hands off the keyboards. Additionally, 1400 user program memories provide ample storage for custom settings, with quick fingertip recall in every performing situation.
