Someone with experience could likely do it quite easily, but I am still way to new to try anything like this. I'm still spending hours going through the sounds in the 4 expansion banks to try to get familiar with the sounds available and start the process of trying to organize them in some logical manner that I could more effectively use them in time. :)

Maybe next year, if I get bored... lol

I had a nice chromatic harmonica long ago. I love the rich sound.

But I left it behind at a gig and never saw it again. :(

I just found the video announcing and demonstrating the FR-4.
At the very end they say that the V-accordion family now consists of the 1, 3, 4, and 8. So the 8 replaces the 7?

They could really use a comparison chart on their product website. :)

Yes for the last 4 years. It came out in 2013.

The 9x is due out likely sometime in 2017, that's what the rumors seem to point to.

Sweet. I'm going to have to call Sam up and see when this bad boy will be in stock.

Do you know whether they have improved the recharging situation? I am mucho tired of pulling the battery pack out, manually unloading the NiMH cells into a charger, then manually loading them back into the battery pack! Come on, Roland, at least give us a rechargeable battery pack, if not the real thing (internal recharging).

Most of us use these for a 3 and 3x and will work for the new 4x. You reverse the polarity on the ouput plug and put the battery pack on your belt. -----
