When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners, solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths. Also, do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might discolor the panel or keyboard.

Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects on the instrument, and do not use excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors.

Do not operate the instrument for a long period of time at a high or uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.

Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modifications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed.

Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use.

Make sure to discard used batteries according to local regulations.

The illustrations as shown in this owners manual are for instructional purposes only, and may be different from the ones on your instrument.

Any mention or reference to the DD-20 in this manual also applies to the model DD-20S.

PRECAUTIONS PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING

* Please keep these precautions in a safe place for future reference.

Do not open the instrument or attempt to disassemble the internal parts or modify them in any way. The instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. If it should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.

Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet conditions, or place containers on it containing liquids which might spill into any openings.

If the AC adaptor cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged, or if there is a sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument, or if any unusual smells or smoke should appear to be caused by it, immediately turn off the power switch, disconnect the adaptor plug from the outlet, and have the instrument inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.

Use the specified adaptor (PA-3B, PA-3C or an equivalent recommended by Yamaha) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in damage to the instrument or overheating.

Before cleaning the instrument, always remove the electric plug from the outlet. Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.

Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may have accumulated on it.

Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit. A burning item may fall over and cause a fire.

CAUTION Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage to the instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:

Do not place the AC adaptor cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators, and do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, place heavy objects on it, or place it in a posi- tion where anyone could walk on, trip over, or roll anything over it.

When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold the plug itself and not the cord.

Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multiple-connector. Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause overheating in the outlet.

Unplug the AC power adaptor when not using the instrument, or during electrical storms.

Always make sure all batteries are inserted in conformity with the +/- polarity markings. Failure to do so might result in overheating, fire, or battery fluid leakage.

Always replace all batteries at the same time. Do not use new batteries together with old ones. Also, do not mix battery types, such as alkaline batteries with manganese batteries, or batteries from different makers, or different types of batteries from the same maker, since this can cause overheating, fire, or battery fluid leakage.

Do not dispose of batteries in fire.

Do not attempt to recharge batteries that are not intended to be charged.

When the batteries run out, or if the instrument is not to be used for a long time, remove the batteries from the instrument to prevent possible leakage of the battery fluid.

Keep batteries away from children.

If the batteries do leak, avoid contact with the leaked fluid. If the battery fluid should come in contact with your eyes, mouth, or skin, wash immediately with water and consult a doctor. Bat- tery fluid is corrosive and may possibly cause loss of sight or chemical burns.

Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the power for all com- ponents. Before turning the power on or off for all components, set all volume levels to mini- mum. Also, be sure to set the volumes of all components at their minimum levels and gradually raise the volume controls while playing the instrument to set the desired listening level.

Do not expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme cold or heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the day) to prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration or damage to the internal components.

Do not use the instrument near other electrical products such as televisions, radios, or speakers, since this might cause interference which can affect proper operation of the other products.

Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall over.

Before moving the instrument, remove all connected adaptor and other cables.

WARNING Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical shock, short-circuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:

OPEN

Supplying Power The DD-20 will operate on either an optional power adaptor or optional batteries.

To connect a power adaptor: 1. Connect only the Yamaha PA-3B or PA-

3C power adaptor to the DC IN jack of the DD-20.

2. Plug the power adaptor into an AC power outlet.

Setting Up

Headphones You can use a standard pair of stereo headphones, such as Yamahas HPE-3 or HPE- 150, with the DD-20 for private practice. To connect headphones insert the headphone plug into the HEADPHONES/AUX. OUT jack. The DD-20s internal speakers will switch off automatically when you plug in a pair of headphones.

Percussion Pads Striking two percussion pads at the same time produces simultaneous sounds accord- ing to the voices assigned to the respective pads.

Sensitivity The DD-20s main percus- sion pads feature touch sensors so that they respond just like acoustic percussion instruments. Striking the percussion pads with differ- ent force results in relatively loud or soft sounds accord- ingly. Be careful not to strike the pads with excessive force as this may seriously damage the percussion pad sensors.

WARNING

CAUTION

HEADPHONES/ AUX. OUTDC IN 10-12V

DC IN 10-12V + _

Use ONLY the Yamaha PA-3B, PA-3C AC Power Adaptor (or other adaptor specifically recommended by Yamaha) to power your instrument from the AC mains. The use of other adaptors may result in irreparable damage to both the adaptor and the DD-20.

2. Insert six (6) 1.5 V AA (R-6, SUM-3) or equivalent batteries into the battery compartment.

Make sure the polarities are lined up as indicated in the battery compartment.

3. Replace the battery compartment cover securely.

Never mix old and new batteries or different types of batteries (e.g., alkaline and manganese).

To prevent possible damage from battery leakage, remove the batteries from the instrument if it is not to be used for a long time.

When the batteries are low, replace with a complete set of six new batteries. Never mix old and new batteries or different types of batter- ies. The batteries are low when the DD-20s voices become noticeably distorted or the DD-20 resets to default settings unexpectedly.

To insert batteries: 1. Remove the battery compartment

cover located on the bottom of the DD-20.

Unplug the AC Power Adaptor when not using the DD- 20, or during electrical storms.

CAUTION
