Roland FR-4xb V-Accordion - $5,500 (Vancouver)

12345678

condition: like new
make / manufacturer: Roland
model name / number: FR-4XB
size / dimensions: 390/470/240 mm

Roland FR-4xb V-Accordion. The newest addition by Roland, sophisticated, very versatile, lightweight (8.6kg). Made in Italy. Purchased about two years ago at Petosa in Seattle, WA. Wanted to play again after very long hiatus but life is going different way, so perhaps someone else will have better use for it. The accordion is in absolutely like-new condition, hardly played. Right now, the right hand is set up as B-Griff but can quickly be set up as any other system/layout you prefer (C Griff Europe, C Griff 2, B Griff Bayan, C Griff Fin, D Griff 1, D Griff 2). You can do it yourself easily. It comes with sturdy padded soft case (made in Italy), original power supply, advanced battery charger and 2 sets (10 batteries each) of rechargeable batteries that I bought only few months ago and never used, user manual, original straps, spare button caps (left and right hand, black and white).

Following is from the Roland FR-4xb web page:
https://www.roland.com/ca/products/fr-4xb/

"With its light and compact design, responsive pressure-sensing bellows, and full-range onboard speakers, this latest model feels as familiar as your favorite acoustic accordion. But with the same powerful sound engine as Roland’s flagship FR-8xb, this digital accordion goes even further. Choose from a wide selection of accordion sounds from around the world, and play in silence using headphones or connect to a PA for live performance. Control other electronic musical instruments via the MIDI connector, or record your playing to a connected USB stick and share your music with the world. While its sounds and playing feel are reassuringly traditional, the Roland FR-4xb is an accordion for the modern age."
