BAJAAO India presents the revolutionary Roland V-Accordion FR-1WH (piano style). It 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.
