As a Roland dealer for the past 25 years, we have built up a wonderful relationship with Roland - selling their very first Roland V Accordion. Right from the start, Castiglione Accordion helped introduced their new Roland V accordion. The introduction of the newest Roland - FR-4X and the FR-4XB now combines the new technology and fuses it into acting more like a traditional accordion plus acting like an electronic instrument as well. Come in and try out the new V-Accordions.
Castiglione is a Roland specialist. Roland says the new FR-4X and FR-4XB accordions will arrive in the next couple of months. We are now selling them in advance with a deposit plus with a special offer. Call 1-586-755-6050 for information and best prices anywhere. The new FR 8's are bundled with a hardshell case or the pro carrying bag as offered by us. We have detailed all of the new features and demos and users of them. On our home page click on either the FR 8X brochure or the FR 8Xb (button) brochure or check out our Roland Main Page and click on (FR 8X picture). You can also look on "You Tube" to see the complete line of Roland V-Accordions. Roland has also just released the "New" "Limited" FR-8X-Dallape Accordion.
Besides an Apple iPad this App requires an Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit (camera connectors made by Apple Inc.), a USB cable (type A male to type B male, commercially available), any Roland V-Accordion or any accordion that has a MIDI installed. When using BK Partner you can: Play your BK-series instrument while using your iPad as a duplication of its front control panel. This provides an easy and fast visual access to the BK's main functions, Tones, and Rhythms. *Note: The BK Partner can only display English texts.
The FR-8X Dallape is no longer available but the FR-8X is available.
We just received the latest V-Accordion in from Roland - it's called the FR-8x Dallape. Now, this inspiring flagship instrument is available in a new limited edition FR-8x Dallape model that combines the complete FR-8x feature set with additional historic sounds and many luxury enhancements. The Dallape Sound Library for V-Accordion is built in, putting an array of legendary accordions at your fingertips. This exclusive model also offers striking, sophisticated looks with a gloss black finish, a special metal grille with the Dallape logo, beautifully decorated bellows, and elegant leather/Alcantara accessories. Production of the FR-8x Dallape is limited to 500 instruments, with each bearing a unique numbered plaque.
We have all of the Roland FR 7Xs in stock. Sincerely, John Castiglione.
"In 2004, after several years of research, a dream of Roland founder Mr. Ikutaro Kakehashi came true: the V-Accordion was born. This instrument was the world's first fully digital accordion, powered by the groundbreaking new Physical Behavior Modeling technology.
Bringing together the playability of a fine acoustic accordion with all the conveniences of a modern digital instrument, the V-Accordion was immediately embraced by players around the world. Today, the V-Accordion lineup has grown to include a wide range of models, from student instruments to full-featured professional accordions.
V-Accordions are manufactured in Italy by Roland Europe, in Acquaviva Picena in the Marche region. This factory is part of the Roland Corporation group, whose headquarters are located in Japan. The production of V-Accordions is a long, accurate, and precisely arranged working process resulting from a strong passion to create appealing, high-quality products."
