PRECAUTIONS
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
* Please keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
WARNING
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical shock, shortcircuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Power supply/AC power adaptor
Battery
• Do not place the power 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 position where anyone could walk on, trip over, or roll anything over it.
• Only use the voltage specified as correct for the instrument. The required voltage is
printed on the name plate of the instrument.
• Use the specified adaptor (page 31) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in
damage to the instrument or overheating.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may have
accumulated on it.
Do not open
• This instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. Do not open the instrument or
attempt to disassemble or modify the internal components in any way. If it should
appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it inspected by
qualified Yamaha service personnel.
Water warning
• 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 any
liquid such as water seeps into the instrument, turn off the power immediately and
unplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Then have the instrument inspected by
qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
Fire warning
• Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit.
A burning item may fall over and cause a fire.
• Always replace all batteries at the same time. Do not use new batteries together with

flowing to the instrument at the minimum level. When you
are not using the instrument for a long time, make sure you
unplug the AC power adaptor from the wall AC outlet.
NOTE
• Connecting the AC power adaptor automatically supplies power
from the adaptor and overrides battery power, even when batteries are installed.
When battery power becomes too low for proper
operation, the volume may be reduced, the sound
may be distorted, and other problems may occur.
When this happens, make sure to replace all batteries, following the precautions listed below.
CAUTION
• Use alkaline batteries for this instrument. Other types of
batteries (including rechargeable batteries) may have sudden drops of power when battery power becomes low.
• Make sure to install the batteries with the proper orientation, maintaining the correct polarity (as shown). Incorrect
battery installation may result in heat, fire and/or leaking of
corrosive chemicals.
• When the batteries run down, replace them with a complete
set of six new batteries. NEVER mix old and new batteries.
Do not use different kinds of batteries (e.g. alkaline and
manganese) at the same time.
• If the instrument is not to be in use for a long time, remove
the batteries from it, in order to prevent possible fluid leakage from the battery.

The instrument contains a total of 99 high quality drum Voices (see the “Voice List” on page 19)—and you can
assign these freely to each of the four pads and a pedal. Try assigning some different Voices and save your
own “CU” Custom Drum Kits.
NOTE
• Any data assigned to the Custom Kit will be replaced by factory default values (“1”) when the power is turned off.
• Custom Kit “CU” and Drum Kit “1” contents are the same until modified (see the “Drum Kit List” on page 20).
• Any changes made to one of the preset Drum Kits will automatically be saved in the “CU” Custom Drum Kit.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
When the instrument is turned on or off, a popping
sound is temporarily produced.
This is normal and indicates that the instrument is receiving electrical power.
The LED display is dark.
The batteries are low or dead. Replace all six batteries with completely new ones, or use an AC adaptor.
The volume is too low.
The Custom Kit Voice assignments have disappeared or been reset to their default settings.
When using a mobile phone, noise is produced.
Using a mobile phone in close proximity to the instrument may produce interference. To prevent this, turn off the mobile phone or use it
further away from the instrument.
No sound comes from the speakers.
The volume is set too low. Adjust the volume (page 9).
Check that nothing is connected to the [PHONES/OUTPUT] jack on
the rear panel. When a plug is inserted into this jack, no sound is
output.
18
None of the buttons work.
The panel buttons have been locked. Turn off Panel Button Lock
(page 10).
The power was turned off suddenly.
The Auto Power Off function (page 9) is active. When the instrument
is not in use for about ten minutes, power is turned off automatically.

of alteration, erasing or forgery of proof-of-purchase documents will cause this warranty to be void. This warranty covers only the
