Scotlandaccordions are pleased to present Roland FR1 accordion in excellent condition paired with a new speaker/amplifier. This model is especially interesting as it is very light weight at 5.5 Kg. While this model is no longer available its replacement has built in speakers making it heavier. This accordion is delightful and because of its very light weight bellows shake effects etc are unbelievable. There is bellows and touch sensitivity on the keys making it seem like several instruments are being played at once depending upon how it is played. You can for example play drums with the left hand with no bellows movement, then start moving the bellows to bring in accordion or instrumental sounds, then bring in the right hand with a large choice of accordion sounds or other instrumental sounds. All in all, depending upon bellows movements and how much you ‘jab’ the keys you can get a good variety of sounds with pressing tabs (the tabs are very easily accessible anyway). We have coupled this with a brand new speaker amplifier (so you don’t have to take the weight of the speaker in the accordion). This gives plenty of punch and volume to your playing. We even supply all of the leads to get you up and running straight away. If this is not enough we can supply an expander to give you hundreds more sounds just ask. We also have available, as an extra for additional purchase, the Roland pack pack type back if you want to carry the accordion around.
This kit is a great opportunity for a very full sound along with ultra light weight, size and playability. Try playing string bass, instrumental chords, accordion or instrument along with drums -fantastic. Also some good organ sounds!
