Kevboards -
The B-2R has three keyboards. The upper two are called "Keyboards" and the lower one, played with the
feet, “pedals.” They have keys and octaves as follows:
Upper Keyboard 37 keys (3 octaves)
Lower Keyboard 37 keys (3 octaves)
Pedals 13 keys (1 octave)
The B-2R is designed to permit playing the melody on the upper keyboard with the right hand, the chords
on the lower keyboard with the left hand, and bass note on the pedals with the left foot.
All keys are arranged in the traditional keyboard method: two black keys, three black keys. Each white key
has a name (from C to B), and the blacks are sharps of flats. “C” is always the white key just below the left
black key in the two-black-key group. Any complete set of seven white keys and five black keys is called an
“octave”,

Note: |
It should be noted that precedence is to the higher note if two or more
keys are pressed simultaneously. This assures tonal clarity,
The Tone Levers
To the left of the upper keyboard is a series of
tone levers to control the Electone voices which
sound when the keys are depressed. They are di-
vided into groups for upper, lower and pedals, so
that different registrations can be set for each.
Upper Keyboard Levers 3 voices
Lower Keyboard Levers 2 voices
Pedal Lever 1 voice
Each lever provides two methods of control. One
is by continuously moving the lever from off to
full, to achieve the exact setting for that tone, and
thus balancing the overall tone setting with perfect
precision. Each lever also has two easy-to-feel click
stops, at 1/3 and 2/3 positions. This lets you
refind any setting with mathematical precision and
no guesswork in a matter of seconds.
Vibrato
Vibrato is a waving of the tone. You will see
violin and cello players use it freely by an oscillat-
ing motion of the left hand. It increases the
emotional quality of the violin tone. This vibrato
lever produces the same vibrato effect.

Auto Rhythm Section
Tempo Indicator
Tempo Control — Rhythm Selectors
— volume Control — Rhythm Start
This section has 5 different rhythm accompani-
ments, each with its own selector button. There
are also rhythm Volume and Tempo controls, a
tempo indicator lamp and a start switch. SOFT
To use the rhythm section, first push the desired
selector button (or buttons — you can combine
rhythms). Then turn the Start button on. The - A . -
rhythm will begin and you can adjust the tempo VOLUME TEMPO
and volume.
LOUD SLOW FAST
Expression Pedal
Push down the pedal to control the volume of each note or phrase. This pedal is extremely important
for adding emotion to your playing. The pedal is balanced to stay in any position once set. Rest the
entire right foot on the pedal and relax It, pressing with the toe to increase volume, with the heel to de-
crease it.
Headphone Jack
A Yamaha headphone set (optional) can be plugged
into the jack under the keyboard. With the
headphones connected, the speaker is automati-
cally shut off, allowing you to play or practice
at any volume level without disturbing anyone.
Ext In Jack
This is used to feed any sound source (i.e., Tape
recorder) through the Electone speaker. Since
the volume of the sound sources is not affected
by the expression pedal, you can play along on
the Electone with any other performance.
Electone is not out of order If...
1. ..... the set does not go on when the power switch is
turned on. Check the following.
Is the AC plug fully inserted into the electric wall outlet?
Reinsert it to be sure. Is there power coming from that
outlet?
If there is power in the outlet but the Electone does not
play, unplug the cord and contact your Yamaha dealer.
There are NO USER SERVICEABLE PARTS inside.
|
|
2. ..... a sound should occur the instant you turn on the
switch.
This merely indicates normal operation consequent on a
surge of electricity in the main amplifier.
3. ..... occasional unpleasant static occurs.
In the majority of such cases, the cause can be traced to
the turning on or off of refrigerators, washing machines,
electric pumps or other household appliances. Electrical
faults in a neighboring outdoor neon sign may also be to
blame. | |
> If the cause is a fault in a neon or fluorescent lighting
| fixture, it should be repaired. When the cause is un-
known, or in case of doubt, contact your Yamaha dealer.
4. ..... the Electone reproduces radio or TV signals.
IT there is a powerful transmitter such as a radio station
in the vicinity this can“occur. Contact your Yamaha
dealer.
5. .....pedal notes sound too high, upper keyboard notes
too low. This is especially noticeable when comparing
the Electone with piano. Piano tones are combinations of
harmonics and must interact with their surroundings,
while Electone harmonics are simpler {multiples of the
fundamental tone}, requiring the Electone to be adjusted
differently at the assembly stages.
6. ..... rattling (sympathetic vibration) occurs.
All materials have critical resonance frequencies at
which they vibrate. The Electone’s continuous tones
will naturally cause other objects (windows, shelves, etc.)
to vibrate.
Playing the Electone
First turn on the power switch. No warm-up period is required. You can tell that the power is on
because the pilot lamp will light; the Electone is so quiet that this lamp will be the only way you can
check whether the Electone is on. when you are not playing.
Next, set up a registration (set ali the levers and controls you wish to use for the upper and lower
manuals and the pedals). Select tone combinations according to suggestions in the music you are going
to play, or experiment with your own combinations. Remember that the registration noted on any sheet
of music is no more than a suggestion, and your idea may well be even more suitable.
By the same token, do not be alarmed if you have a piece of music with no registration for your organ.
With a bit of imagination you can approximate the registration for a different organ, going on to im-
provise on your own. This will be an ever-new source of creative enjoyment as you become more and
more familiar with the various Electone controls and effects.
