Joe Recchia Michigan Accordionist

Welcome to JR Products llc

As a traveling owner of the Roland FR7x V Accordion and as a Degreed Electrical Engineer, I want to provide a way for V-Accordion users to allow their V-Accordion's to be more portable by eliminating the large and cumbersome FBC-7 foot pedal module that most V-Accordion player's don't use during their performances.  Also I have witnessed many people complaining that they need to spend a lot of money repairing the cumbersome and delicate 19 pin Amphenol Cable Assembly.  Well, there is now a great solution to all of these problems.....

So with many years of experience with electronics and accordions, I took the initiative to develop, test and market several new value added products that allow V-Accordion users more poratablity while charging and/or powering their V-Accodion's with a very compact and very highly reliable electrical device interface module that can be easily packed into your accordion case.   PRODUCTS ARE ALSO MADE RIGHT HERE IN THE USA!

Im proud to say that we have several well established Roland V-Accordion dealers representing and handling my products across the country and all my customers are 100% happy with all my products.  Many customers have responded saying that these products work fantastic and are a great invention for the V-Accordion product line!


I would like to thank Mr. Cory Pesaturo, 3 time World Accordion Champion who did a wonderful video and endorsed my Roland Products.  I am very pleased to advise that Cory uses my products exclusively for all of his performances throughout the world.  Please see Cory's video endorsement link of my products https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=4681365280586&set=vb.1487430032&type=2&theater

I would also like to thank Roland V-Accordion Software Expert Mr. Richard Noel Who also endorses my Products, he says..........
"The JR Products are first-rate. You can buy from Joe (or his Dealers) with confidence, knowing that the products are well made and reliable. The Power Adapter fills the need for a portable power supply that avoids the need to take the awkward FBC-7 foot pedal unit and fragile cable. I always bring the power supply on gigs as a backup in case my battery ever fails. It takes only a few seconds to plug it in and you can be playing immediately. The battery charger is equally convenient, eliminates the need for the FBC-7, and can be plugged in simply either at home or on the road. You can have confidence in JR Products. You need never struggle with opening the batter compartment once the JR Products Jumper wire kit for the charger and power adapter is installed."

Roland V Accordion FR7x Portable Battery Charger

This portable device allows you to charge your Roland V accordion BP 45-24 battery without the use of the cumbersome FBC-7 Roland foot pedal module.  This portable charger also tests your battery condition each time it charges. This compact unit is highly reliable and is one of the most superior chargers on the market today.  Specially designed to charge your Roland V accordion Battery effectively and efficiently without any long term damage to your V-accordion battery.  You can trust your Roland V-Accordion battery is in great hands with this great product!

Roland V Accordion FR7x Portable Power Adaptor

This portable device allows you to use your V-Accordion without your Roland B-24-45 battery pack, making your V-Accordion approx. 2.0 - 2.5 pounds lighter by plugging into normal house hold 120/220VAC systems.  Note: the jumper kit is required in order for this device to operate properly in your Roland V accordion.

Roland V Accordion FR7x Jumper Wire Kit

This Jumper Kit allows for a dual functionality  1) it allows you to Charge your Battery with my Portable Charger without removing the battery from the V-Accordion and 2) it is required with the use of my Portable Power Adaptor.  This kit comes with instruction for making 2 very small and easy cut outs in your plastic Battery Cover to properly place the Jumper Kit into position.  These modifications are very easy to do with a small file and I have not had one customer compliant.   

JRProduct Customers are 100% Satisfied

I have received many positive customer feedback on my products and service and wanted to share some of the many positive comments I receive with you.......

"Joe, Just received your Power Adaptor this morning and its working like a charm on my Roland....Thanks a million for all your help! 

Corey B, London, Ont Canada


"Had to let you know how happy I am with your portable charger and so glad I purchased it from you!  I have 2 Roland FR7x batteries and one of them will not charge on my FBC-7 but on your charger it works great I can get 8 hours of play time out of it.  Thank you for having such a terrific portable charger on the market!  You saved me the cost of buying a new BP-45 Battery!"

Dave P, Westland, MI


 

"Hi Joe, I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the PA-50 power supply, and eliminating the battery will reduce the weight of my 7x by more than 2 1/2 pounds, and that is a help.....I have been so pleased with this unit that I sent an Email to Alicia Baker at Roland Customer Service. I told Alicia how convenient this unit is, and how well it works!"

Mike P., Huntsville, AL


"Just to let you know your FR-7x charger is wonderful.   I strongly recommended it to other FR-7x accordionists."

"I have a battery and conversion kit that permits me to charge the FR-7x independent of the foot pedal charger.  In fact, this system permits charging without having to remove the battery plate, since I have used an appropriate size half-round file to make two semi-circular holes in the sides of the battery plate which accommodate the two cable openings required for the kit to be used fully.  Now I can travel by air with no worries about luggage weight restrictions.  Secondly, I have an FR-7x power supply which permits connecting to the mains for power.   This means that I can remove the rechargeable battery entirely and enjoy the reduced weight of the instrument.  Since I play seated and stationary for many performances, this is a nice option."

"Hi Joe, got the power adapter today for my FR7x and it works great, Thank You."

Phil B. Sault Saint Marie, Canada


"Joe, I just got back from Mesa, Arizona and wanted to tell you that your charger saved my life!!! We had rehearsals throughout the day and I was able to charge the instrument for the next rehearsal."

Don G. Phoenix, Arizona


"Hi Joe, I've been using your charger unit continuously since I purchased it, as a matter of fact the 7X is being recharged for tonight's gigs as I type you this email.  It works fantastic!"

Chett W. Dallas, Texas


"Joe, I recieved the Power Adaptor for my FR7X and the product is working well, I was able to make the cut outs on the Battery Cover they were a little more tricky than I thought, but it worked out quite well.  Thank you!" 

Zoltan R. - Central Florida


"Hi Joe, Thanks for the quick response, recieved the chargers they are great."

Randy M. Minneapolis, Minnesota


"Joe, Just a short note to let you know I've used the charger four times now and it works like a charm. You don't realize how that little gem has saved my life. I had a gig last Tuesday and another one in a week and I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't found you. An "authorized" Roland repair center has had my FBC-7 foot controller for 3 weeks and they informed me this morning that Roland no longer makes parts for the unit. Anyway thanks again for your wonderful invention."

Mike R. New Jersey


On The Roland V-Accordion Members Group - "I’ve used it every day for more than six months.  It works perfectly with no issues at all.  It is very well engineered!!  I purchased my kit from Joe when I met him at a convention.  The basic unit is called a “Portable NiMH Charger for FR-7/FR-7x V Accordion”.   You will also want the “Battery Jumper Kit” to facilitate charging without having to remove the battery cover.  With Joe’s instruction sheet with photos, you will find that making two small battery cover cut-outs for two cables is easy.  I used a half-round file for the cut-outs and my approach worked perfectly for me.  Now I can charge either of my two FR-7x Roland V-accordions very efficiently and never have to travel with the bulky Roland pedal set/charger and stiff power cable.  I am looking forward to getting Joe’s power source for the 7x as well, for I know that it will be superbly engineered when it becomes available.  Have a good rest of the week."

Ron U. NE, Iowa


"I bought two of these chargers from Joe last year. One was for  friend and the other for me. Neither of us has had a problem with this charger.  I would not consider using a third party charger unless I knew that it would actually work over a long period of time. Joe knows his onions when it comes to batteries and chargers, so I trust him. I have not been disappointed at all." 

Bill P. Dallas, Texas


On The Roland V-Accordion Members Group "I also purchased the battery charger from Joe Recchia. It works terrific.  I installed the wire jumper kit on my Roland FR-7X.  Now I am using your battery charger and I do not have to take out the  battery.  Your charger is terrific.  It is 10 times better than charging the battery with the Roland 19 pin cable. It is way more easier then charging the Roland with the bulky 19 pin cable." 

Jim P. Clevlend, Ohio 


"Joe, Your Power Adaptor for my Roland FR7X worked great right out of the Box! It was easy to install and making the battery cut with your instructions for your Jumper Wire Kit was very easy to do!  Thanks for the great product!

Rich S. Shelby Township, MI


"Hello Joe, just opened your products today, Thank you everything worked very well with no problems. Looking forward in passing you great products and information onto others Roland V-Accordion Users!"

Glenn S. London England


On The Roland V-Accordion Members Group - "Chris, Why not purchase the JR Products charger kit for your FR-7x?  I did this and I no longer have to depend on the FBC-7 or the unwieldy power cable.  The charger system is small, completely reliable, and much handier to use than the pedal set charger.  The kit charger does not require removal of the battery compartment lid!  Very cool, IMHO."

Ron U. NE, Iowa


"Joe, Your Power Adaptor Continues to work like a Charm!  I love it!  Good Work!  Also Purchased your charger and works like a charm!"
