Caution Injury or handicaps to persons caused by the disregard of warnings with this mark or, misuse of the instrument, may result in the loss of personal property.

When assembling or disassembling the instrument, be careful around the sides or ends of metal parts so as to prevent injury to fingers, etc.

Do not use the hammer for anything other than playing the instrument. It may be the cause of injury or accidents. Do not let children strike other, etc., with the hammer. Do not allow such dangerous behavior to take place.

Before you use the chime, carefully read the instructions listed below and the owners manual.

Cautions when setting the instrument.

Never place the instrument on an sloping, unstable, etc., platform. The instrument may fall or overturn and result in injury.

Cautions for treatment of the instrument.

Never lean on or climb onto the instrument. The instrument may fall and result in injury.

Do not play or roughhouse around the instrument. Bumping into the instrument may result in injury. It may also cause the instrument to fall over. Keep children away from the instrument.

If an earthquake occurs, strong shocks caused by the earthquake may overturn the instrument or cause it to move about. Stay away from the instrument during earthquakes.

Cautions when moving the instrument.

Warning Disregard of the warnings with this mark or misuse may result in death or personal injury.

When transporting the chimes, make sure that the damper is engaged and all caster locks are released. The chimes can overturn if moved with the caster locks engaged.

The chimes should only be moved across smooth, flat surfaces when using the casters. Never move the chimes on a sloped, unstable, or gravel surface. Doing so can cause the

chimes to overturn or run out of control resulting in serious injury. Always move the chimes slowly, with two persons supporting the side columns as

shown in the illustration on the right. Never run. Doing so can result in the chimes run- ning out of control and hitting an obstacle or wall causing serious injury.

The weight of the CH-500 is approximately 84kg. If the chimes must be lifted when being moved, lift them carefully, using as many persons as possible to avoid injury. At this time, lift the chimes by holding the base section and supporting the side column making sure that the hanger section (from which the sound columns hang) remains in an upright position. Never lift the base section higher than the hanger section. Doing so can result in the sound columns coming off the hanger.

Moving the instrument up or down stairs should never be done with the instrument as- sembled. Doing so is a danger as parts can fall off, or you can loose balance causing the instrument to fall over. Only move the instrument after it has been disassembled.

PRECAUTIONS Using the Chimes Safely

The chimes are a large and heavy instrument that gets used in various places by persons of all ages, so please obey the following instructions regarding their regular care and placement.

Especially in the case of children, a responsible adult should provide proper instruction on how to use and treat the chimes before use.

If the instrument is often moved, bolts, parts, etc., may become loose. After moving the instrument, check and make sure all bolts, parts, etc., are firmly fastened. Firmly tighten all loose items.

When using the casters

When lifting

For example: Do not disassemble.

7

1 Never use a metal type hammer or mallets to strike the sound column with. The sound column will break.

2 Always use the instrument on a flat, level sur- face. The instrument will not function properly on a sloped surface.

3 When assembling the stand, make sure each part is firmly attached, and there is no twisting or disfigurement in the frame. Also, make sure that all wing nuts are firmly tightened.

4 Use your toes to operate the damper pedal. Do not stand on or put your weight on the pedal. Do- ing so may cause the pedal to break.

5 Do not touch the damper adjuster. The adjuster has been adjusted at the factory. Moving the ad- juster may result in the damper not functioning properly.

Before you use

1 When transporting or moving the instrument, do not subject it to strong shocks.

2 The sound columns pitch and/or tone may change if the columns are scratched or bent. Be careful.

3 When the instrument is to be transported over long distances, especially by vehicle, do so with the sound columns removed from the stand. The shape of the stand may change and the columns wire/strings may be cut if the columns are not re- moved.

7 Hit the Head Plug when playing the chime. Never hit the sound column (pipe) with the hammer.

Thank you for selecting the YAMAHA chimes. Please read this owners manual carefully, and truly enjoy this instrument for years to come.

4 When attaching or removing the sound columns, do so in a place where there is sufficient room so that the columns do not come into contact with other objects.

5 After the sound columns are removed, wrap them in a soft cloth, etc., to prevent scratching, and then transport.

8 Do not keep the chime in a place where high tem- peratures and high humidity are present. Doing so will result in the shortening of the instruments life.

9 For regular cleaning, wipe with a soft, dry cloth. Never wipe with thinner, or polishing prepara- tions.

CH-500/CHS-520 ASSEMBLY PROCEDURE

Insert the side columns into the base. At this time, make sure that the damper rest, at- tached at the center of the column, and the short section of the column is positioned up- right.

1

Fit the damper onto the side columns and lower the damper onto the damper rest. Next, secure the damper in its position with the damper fixing bolts. At this time, tighten the fixing bolts that secure the side column to the base as well.

2

Remove the damper stay, attached to the bottom of the damper, loosen the wing bolt on the damper stay, and attach the stay to the pedal hook. The pedals position can be controlled by adjusting the length of the pedal stay with its two wing bolts. At this time, tighten the upper wing bolt first, then go on to tighten the lower bolt.

Adjust the pedal position so that the pedal stops slightly above the floor when fully de- pressed.

CHS-506 ASSEMBLY PROCEDURE

With the fixing hole on the base bar aligned with the bolt hole in the base, connect the base bar to the base. Tighten the block bolt to secure the base bar to the base. (The upper end of the side column acts as tool to tighten the block bolt. Insert the upper end of the col- umn and tighten the block bolt by rotating the side column.)

1 Fit the guide board onto the side columns and lower the guide board until it rests on the board rest.

Attach the hanger bar on the top of the side columns and secure with the wing bolts. At this time, also tighten the wing bolts on the side column and base.

4

Before hanging the sound columns on the hanger, activate the damper stopper.

Position the sound column with its pitch in- scription facing forward, place one side of the wire into the slot of the hanger pin. Next, hook the wire on the round head rivet, finally place the wire into the slot of the remaining hanger pin.

6

When hanging the sound columns, it is easier to hang the accidental tones (C#53-F#70) first, then hang the natural tones (C52-G71).
