Assembling the Rack System
1 Take out the rack system from the package and remove all the cushioning. Remove the bubble wrap on the pipes while assembling the rack system.
The pipe ends may injure your fi ngers. Figure 3: Rack Assembly-1
* YAMAHA logo printed on pipe is facing the opposite side.
2 See Figure 3. Set up the rack system, with the YAMAHA logo label (a) on pipe facing the opposite side from you. Support the rack system with your right hand, and loosen the two knobs (b) and (c) on your left.
Figure 4: Rack Assembly-2
3 See Figure 4. Move the leg on your left (pipe ) in a clockwise direction until it is about 90 degrees from pipe with the YAMAHA logo. Tighten the two knobs loosened in step 2 and fi x the position of pipe .
4 See Figure 3 again. Loosen the knob (d) on your right. 5 See Figure 4 again. Move the leg on your right (pipe ) in a counterclockwise direction
until it is parallel with pipe . Tighten the knob loosened and fi x the position of pipe .
* In the following steps, loosen the knobs fi rst, decide the position of the pipe, and then tighten the knobs. Be careful not to tighten the knobs excessively. For better perfor- mance, make minor adjustments for each part of the unit with the knobs after the as- sembly is completed.
6 Loosen the two knobs (e) aligned at the base of pipe , and move pipe slightly outward in a counterclockwise direction. Tighten the two knobs loosened and fi x the position of pipe .
7 Loosen the two knobs ((f) on the middle left) aligned at the base of pipe . Move pipe slightly outward in a clockwise direction. Tighten the two knobs loosened and fi x the
position of pipe . 8 Loosen the two knobs ((g) on the upper left) aligned at the base of pipe , and move pipe
outward in a clockwise direction until it is about 45 degrees from pipe . Tighten the two knobs loosened and fi x the position of pipe .
9 Check that the entire rack system is stable. Hold the upper area of the vertical pipe and , and shake them. If the rack system is unstable, retighten the knobs tightened in steps 2
to 5. Figure 5: Rack Assembly-3
10 See Figure 5. Loosen the knobs of the cymbal holders and on the right and left (shown with on the opposite side of pipe ) and pull up the cymbal holders vertically to the height illustrated. Tighten the knobs loosened and fi x the positions of the cymbal holders.
11 Loosen the two knobs (h) aligned along the pipe with the Trigger Module attachment part .
Adjust the Trigger Module attachment part so the operating panel will face upward diagonally to your side when set. Hold the Trigger Module attachment part fi rmly and turn it gradually. Tighten the two knobs loosened and fi x the position of the Trigger Module attachment part .
PRECAUTIONS Before using, please read this assembly manual, and use this product in a safe and proper manner. Particularly in the case of children and young users, parents or an instructor should teach the children the proper manner in which to use the device.
WARNING If this symbol is ignored and the equipment is used improperly, fatal injury to persons or serious damage could occur.
