Roland have always held a reputation for being a musical equipment company, constantly on the verse on new innovations. The FR-4X (keyboard style) digital accordian somehow feels like an instrument you've owned and played your whole life, while esentially re-inventing the concept of a traditional accordion.

Show full description »

Play in Any Style with Customizable Onboard Tones

A traditional acoustic accordion offers just one dedicated sound. With its powerful sound engine carried over from the flagship FR-8x electronic accordion, the new FR-4x puts an entire orchestra in your hands, with a wide range of onboard sounds to support any musical style. Maybe you’ll dabble in 100 preset accordion sets, switching between French musette and Russian bajan in the same song. Or perhaps you’ll investigate 162 orchestral sounds derived from Roland’s latest keyboards, transforming your accordion into an organ, string quartet, or bass guitar. You could add chorus, reverb, and rotary effects, or accompany your melody lines with the onboard drum sounds. And factoring in the fast, easy sound customization process plus additional sound libraries available from the official Roland website the FR-4x is a truly open-ended instrument with immense creative potential. 

The Digital Accordion That Honors Tradition

If you play a traditional accordion, you won’t want to compromise on the expressive feel and portable format. You don’t have to with the Roland FR-4x, which plays like a great acoustic accordion and travels light. The intuitive layout of 37 velocity-responsive keys and 120 left-hand buttons feels instantly familiar, while the pressure-sensing bellows circuitry lets you tailor the inertia to your preference. This new digital accordion might feature lots of onboard technology, but its light and compact design plus the option of powering from an AC adaptor or AA batteries make it a great choice for players on the move.

Flexible Outputs for a Variety of Music-Making Scenarios

Practice. Rehearsal. Studio. Stage. The Roland FR-4x has the flexibility to support you wherever you’re making music. The headphones jack lets you practice at home without disturbing the neighbors, and when you’re on the go, a powerful onboard audio system with two speakers and a tweeter supplies big, full-range sound. Ambitious music makers can even connect with external MIDI devices like the Roland BK-7m Backing Module for controllable accompaniment. Gigging accordion players will appreciate that the FR-4x is fully stage-ready, providing a direct connection to a venue’s PA system via the Line Out and sparing the headaches of trying to mic up a traditional accordion.

Jam with Your Favorite Songs, or Record Your Own

The USB memory port is your pathway to some of the Roland FR-4x’s most useful features. By inserting a USB stick preloaded with your favorite songs or your band’s latest material, you can jam along with the music as it plays back and perfect your parts at your convenience. If you want to get creative, the FR-4x also features a handy onboard recorder; simply record a new part, save it to a USB stick, and then transfer your creation to a computer and share it with the world. USB export also allows you to safely archive your customized sound settings.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
