The revolutionary Roland V-Accordion FR-1 (piano style) or FR-1B (button type) 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.

After owning a Hohner Amica III acoustic, and after owning both the Roland FR-7 and FR-3, the FR-1B is the best so far because it is an ideal size for me. The chromatic button version has the same treble range as I had on my FR-3, yet it weighs so much less. With this smaller instrument I am more in control and my musical expression is so much better. Of course it does not have as many accordion sets (instruments) or orchestral voices as the higher models, but an add on module like the BK-7m can take care of that. Indeed, in my opinion the combination of an FR-1 with the BK has more features than an FR-7X, and it's a lot less expensive.
This accordion has allowed me to finally be able to overpower the drums and guitar in my band. I just have to plug it into the P.A. and I'm set. We were also able to perform without a bassist because you can make the buttons sound like a bass. All of the sounds on this accordion sound genuine. It's very light and comfortable. I'm sure the more expensive Roland accordions have even better features, but the FR-1 is good for stage performers. I would totally recommend this accordion to anyone who plays in a band.
