Roland FR-8 XB Black

Digital button-type accordion from FR-8x series that offers the perfect synergy between traditional accordion playability and modern digital power and is jam-packed with features and enhancements developed with input from the world’s top players, bringing a previously unattained level of expression and versatility to every accordionist. It features redesigned button-type keyboard with 92 buttons for right hand/120 bass buttons for left hand with improved response, authentic loo and lower noise. Innovative Dynamic Bellows Behavior technology emulates the true bellows response of an acoustic accordion in every register, while the expanded sound set, four powerful multi-effects engines (MFX) with dedicated MFX for Accordion/Orchestra 1/Orchestra 2/Orchestra Chord sections, an on-board looper, and much more offer a treasure chest of tools for dynamic musical exploration. The sound set includes a large selection of accordion sounds from around the world, plus 180 orchestra and percussion sounds and world-class Virtual Tone Wheel organs. The accordion also provides 1400 user program memories that allow players to save custom setups for every performing situation, and features an upgraded user interface, featuring a large, easy-to-read colour display, intuitive panel layout, and three programmable chin switches for hands-free control of a variety of functions. It also allows for recording, audio playback and more via convenient USB memory, and provides a USB computer port for integrating with MIDI music software. The accordion is equipped with rechargeable Ni-MH battery pack that is simply and conveniently charged by an included AC adapter. It comes supplied with reference caps for the bass buttons, straps, an accordion cloth and a soft bag. Dimensions: 510 x 260 x 410 mm. Weight: 11.9 kg. Black colour.
