The Diatonic for EVERY Folk Accordionist – even YOU!
Music Magic USA, LLC – America’s first and foremost V-Accordion dealer – is proud to announce the new FR-18 V-Accordion®, the world’s first digital diatonic V-Accordion. With this groundbreaking and affordable instrument, traditional folk accordionists worldwide can now enjoy the many benefits of Roland’s famous V-Accordion technology.
Unparalleled, lightweight, stage and wireless-ready,
affordable Roland FR-18 Diatonic Accordion.
The FR-18 diatonic eliminates many limitations of traditional acoustic diatonic accordions. The FR-18 can be played in ANY key, has a wider note range, and contains the largest variety of diatonic accordion sounds from around the world – instead of the limited tonal restriction of an acoustic diatonic.
Easy transposing of key with a button touch, selection of any of a dozen different authentically sampled ethnic accordions – each with numerous sounds of their own, as well as a the bonus of having 8 high quality orchestral instrument voices plus 4 Virtual Tone Wheel organs with selectable fast/slow rotary “Leslie” effects. This, along with the ability to add drum sounds to the bass and chord buttons to allow “fingers=drumsticks” manual percussion/drums allows for a one instrument total musical solution for the Folk Accordionist performing virtually any musical venue, as well as the capability of the built-in on-grille USB port to save configurations and play any MP3 file/song for ready play-along with the FR-18.
Leave your other accordions at home – just leave it to the FR-18 and any of the portable AC or battery-powered Roland amplifiers to provide all the music you will ever need to entertain yourself as well as your audience at the next Alpine, Tex-Mex, Cajun, Zydeco, Irish, Balkan, Slovenian or other ethnic affair. The FR-18 has on-board MIDI and is compatible with the new Roland BK-7m Backing Module arranger. Either way, you have manual and/or optional auto-arranger capabilities (BK-7m) with the new FR-18 Diatonic – forming the heart of your completely lightweight and portable musical ensemble!
