Product Description

The ultra-light FR1 puts V-Accordion power in the hands of students, beginners and keyboard players! Thanks to its small size, the FR1 is perfect for young beginners and music schools. Plus it is ideal for performers and keyboardists because of its compact size with no compromise in sound quality. With its long battery life (uses 8 x AA type 2000mAH Ni-MH batteries) you will get over five hours of performance per pack, plenty of time to roam the stage with the FR1!

Make Your FR1 Unique
The FR1 comes with six variations of inlay sheets that enable owners to change the appearance of their FR1 from time to time by changing these sheets. The player can also create his/her own custom designed inlay sheets using A4 PC printer, or by using any kind of commercially designed paper.

With high-quality earphones included in the FR1 package, this silent accordion is extremely convenient for practicing at night and without disturbing your family or neighbors.

Connect your FR1 to Roland amplifiers (MOBILE CUBE, CM-30, CUBE Street, SA-300) and be impressed by the power of your sound!
