At almost half the weight of the bigger models, the FR-2b stands out for its portability. Whether you are a student or a professional musician, at home or on stage, your back will definitely thank FR-2b!
You’ve got the Power!
More than five hours of battery life (sold separately) set you free in any situation. In case you run out of power, any eight “AA” rechargeable batteries (the most common to find) will do the job.
The FR-2b contains 8 memories (User Programs) where you can store your function settings. Working with those memories has the advantage that you can recall frequently used settings at the press of a button.
Switch to PAD FUNCTION and the Bass Registers become a powerful tool ― now you can add percussion sounds to your bassline and chord, or use them as drumpads, and even record and play a rhythm on the fly in the Loop Playback Mode.
You can get the most from this function by interacting with any song with the minus one function: Practice each hand separately while the song is playing and control its expression with the bellows. The learning process has never been so much fun!
The many connection options of the FR-2b allow you to perform in any situation.
Headphones: Now you can practice at any hour, without disturbing the neighbours or those around you
Line output: Of course you can plug into the PA as usual, but you could also use a wireless transmitter to leave you free to walk around on stage or amongst the audience and make your performance more visually exciting
MIDI: We live in a digital world and MIDI is the digital instrument’s language: You can play external keyboards and expanders, record your music on a sequencer or connect to an ARRANGER to turn your V-Accordion into a whole band at your fingertip.
The Roland CM-30 CUBE Monitor is the ideal choice to showcase your music but even though it’s light, small and affordable, don’t be fooled… it can sing loud and proud! And, for those of you who like to perform “on the road”, check out the battery powered Roland CUBE STREET ― the ultimate portable solution.
Improved Bellows Resistance Regulator on the FR-2b V-Accordion allows you to fine tune the bellows pressure according to your strength, ability or personal style.
Arranger Control Function
The arranger control function enables the FR-2b player to transmit all the information related to the chords to your arranger keyboard.
Replaceable Inlay Sheets
Choose your look between six included SHEETS or personalize your Roland FR-2b V-Accordion with your name, a picture of your band, or unleash your artistic potential!
