The V accordion range was first launched in 2004 by the Japanese electronics giant Roland, following several years of intensive research. This innovative range of instruments was the vision of Mr. Ikutaro Kakehashi, the founder of Roland, who wished to create the world’s first fully digital accordion.
This ground-breaking project featured Roland’s brand new Physical Behaviour Modelling technology, which brought with it the control and range of tonal dynamics normally only found on an acoustic instrument.
Combining the playability of a quality acoustic accordion with all of the practicalities of an electronic instrument, the Roland V accordion was quickly embraced by accordionists worldwide.
Today, the V accordion collection boasts a wide range of models, with instruments suitable for players of all levels, from the student to the professional.
The current line-up consists of the FR-1X, a lightweight and compact 72 bass 26 key model, which is ideal for the smaller player, or for those who wish to take the instrument travelling with them.
The next size up, the best-selling Roland FR-3X, is a 120 bass 37 key compact accordion that is ideal for most musicians’ needs. This extremely popular model is packed with features including a wide range of orchestral voices, whilst still being lightweight enough for most players.
The range-topping FR-8X is a full size 120 bass 41 key accordion. This flagship model is the ultimate digital accordion with every feature you could wish for.
All Roland accordions are constructed in Italy to an excellent standard, using only the best materials. At The Accordion Shop, we can order any model from the Roland V Accordion range, and often have a selection in stock to try.
