Make sure you hold onto the plug, not the cable, when connecting or disconnecting
the cable. Also, never place any heavy or sharp objects on the cable. Applying
excessive force to the cable may result in damage to the cable, such as the wires being
severed, etc.
This manual describes the standard assembly of the DTXPLORER Basic Set.
After assembling the parts and connecting the cords as shown in Figure 1, the
unit is ready to be turned on.
* To assemble the unit, make sure you have the following three packages:
TP65 (Drum Pad) (5)
HH65 (Hi-Hat Controller) (1)
Do not use or keep the product in places with extremely high temperature (places in
direct sunlight, close to a heater, in a closed car, etc.) or high humidity (bathroom,
outside on a rainy day, etc.). Doing so may result in deformation, discoloration,
damage or deterioration.
When cleaning the product, do not use benzine, thinner or alcohol as it may result in
discoloration or deformation. Please wipe with a soft cloth or a damp cloth that has
been wrung out thoroughly. If the product is soiled or sticky, use a neutral detergent
on a cloth then wipe with a damp cloth that has been wrung out thoroughly to
remove any remaining detergent. Also pay close attention so as not to let the water
and detergent come into contact with the cushions used in the product; doing so
may result in deterioration.
Do not attach acoustic drums to the electronic drum rack. Clamps may be damaged
and drums may drop, causing injury.
Checking the contents of RS40
Open the RS40 (Rack System) package and confirm the contents.

WARNING
Open the DTPK9 (Pad Set) and Trigger Module package and confirm the
contents.
Figure 6: Pad Set DTLK9
Be careful around pipe ends, inside the pipe and screw ends. Metal shavings, etc. may
injure your fingers.
* Prepare beforehand a Phillips screwdriver, required in “ Mounting the
pads and the trigger module on the rack system”.
Before assembling the unit, lay a drum mat (sold separately).
Before assembling the unit, lay a drum mat on the floor. Alternately, to prevent
damaging your floor, lay the cardboard box of the included packages, etc. on the
floor before assembling the two parts shown in the circles in Figure 1.
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

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 fingers.
Figure 3: Rack Assembly-1
Be careful with the edges of the spurs attached to the base. The sharp spur ends may
result in injury.
If this product is used with the rack system or a cymbal stand, make sure all bolts are
tightened firmly. Also, when adjusting the height or angle, do not suddenly loosen
the bolts. Loose bolts may result in the rack overturning or parts dropping, causing
injury.
10 See Figure 5. Loosen the knobs of the cymbal holders
Always set the product on a flat and solid surface. Placement on a sloping, unstable
surface or on steps may result in the product being unstable and subject to
overturning.
11
When setting the product, please pay close attention to the handling and setting of
cables. Carelessly placed cables may cause the user and others to trip and fall.
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 fix the positions of the cymbal
holders.
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
firmly and
turn it gradually. Tighten the two knobs loosened and fix the position of the Trigger Module
attachment part .
Do not alter the product. Doing so may result in injury or damage/deterioration to the
product.
