Music expanded in compact design
The perfect combination of the familiar sounds and nuances of a traditional accordion, with all the advantages of a versatile digital instrument. Thanks to the new bellows pressure sensing circuitry, the FR-3xb gives faster response, higher sensitivity and precision, plus detection of bellows opening/closing. The USB host allows you to customise orchestra and accordion sounds and to save user program data, while the bellows resistance regulator allows you to control the inertia of the bellows. Lightweight and portable, the FR-3xb is perfect for students, hobbyists, and stage performers.
  • Faster response and higher sensitivity of the bellows, thanks to the new bellows sensor
  • Bellows Resistance Regulator to adjust the bellows’ inertia
  • USB Flash Memory connector to store your settings
  • Powerful onboard amplification system
  • Super realistic accordion simulations
  • Drum parts to be played with your left hand
  • It can be powered using 10 AA type rechargeable Ni-MH batteries
  • Also available in a luxurious white version, with beautifully-decorated bellows and genuine leather and Alcantara® straps.
Sophisticated bellows response
Faster response, higher sensitivity and precision, plus detection of bellows opening/closing with new bellows pressure-sensing circuitry.
A bellows resistance regulator knob allows you to adjust the bellows’ inertia to your preference.
Super-realistic accordion simulations
All sounds produced by the FR-3xb were obtained by sampling popular traditional acoustic accordions.
This V-Accordion allows you to switch from an Italian jazz accordion to German folk, French musette or Russian bajan sound without changing your technique. Also the Virtual Tone Wheel is available to play amazing organ sounds in almost the same way as an organ player, using the treble section. You can also add a rotary effect (slow/fast).
The FR-3xb also allows you to enjoy playing simple drum parts with your left hand (bass and chord sections).
Stand-alone electronic instrument
Though the FR-3xb is a fully electronic instrument, you do not need to connect it to an amplifier in order to produce sounds. Its onboard amplification system is perfect for small venues, restaurants, etc.
The FR-3xb can also be powered using 10 commercially available rechargeable Ni-MH batteries, so that you don’t need to connect it to a wall outlet.
Save your settings to a USB storage device
You can save your settings by connecting an optional USB memory to the FR-3xb’s USB port. The USB host also allows you to customise orchestra and accordion sounds and to save the user program data.
Superb performance flexibility
The FR-3xb allows you to control external MIDI-compatible instruments. The treble keyboard and chord/bass buttons are velocity sensitive, while the bellows controller provides more articulation possibilities than any other MIDI keyboard, MIDI wind instrument, etc. that you may be familiar with.
Also available in an exclusive, special edition
Lightweight, compact and equipped with the same features as the standard FR-3xb, the white version model looks gorgeous, with beautifully decorated bellows and genuine leather and Alcantara® straps.

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.

Please select your country/region

Choose the region you are shopping from to view products in your currency.

We have temporarily suspended processing of EUR payments, all orders will be charged in GBP.
