CAUTION
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage
to the instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Power supply/AC adaptor
• Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multiple-connector. Doing
so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause overheating in the outlet.
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold the
plug itself and not the cord. Pulling by the cord can damage it.
• Remove the electric plug from the outlet when the instrument is not to be used for
extended periods of time, or during electrical storms.
Location
• Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally
fall over.
• Do not place objects in front of the instrument's air vent, since this may prevent
adequate ventilation of the internal components, and possibly result in the
instrument overheating.
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected cables, to prevent damage to
the cables or injury to anyone who might trip over them.
• When setting up the product, make sure that the AC outlet you are using is easily
accessible. If some trouble or malfunction occurs, immediately turn off the power
switch and disconnect the plug from the outlet. Even when the power switch is
turned off, electricity is still flowing to the product at the minimum level. When
you are not using the product for a long time, make sure to unplug the power cord
from the wall AC outlet.
• Use only the stand specified for the instrument. When attaching it, use the
provided screws only. Failure to do so could cause damage to the internal
components or result in the instrument falling over.
Connections
• Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the
power for all components. Before turning the power on or off for all components,
set all volume levels to minimum.
• Be sure to set the volumes of all components at their minimum levels and
gradually raise the volume controls while playing the instrument to set the desired
listening level.
Handling caution
• Do not insert a finger or hand in any gaps on the instrument.
• Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps on the panel or
keyboard. This could cause physical injury to you or others, damage to the
instrument or other property, or operational failure.
• Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects on the instrument, and do not
use excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors.
• Do not use the instrument/device or headphones for a long period of time at a
high or uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss.
If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modifications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed.
Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use.
Even when the [
] (Standby/On) switch is in standby status (display is off), electricity is still flowing to the instrument at the minimum level.
When you are not using the instrument for a long time, make sure you unplug the power cord from the wall AC outlet.

Formats
“GM (General MIDI)” is one of the most common Voice allocation formats. “GM System Level 2” is a standard specification
that enhances the original “GM” and improves Song data compatibility. It provides for increased polyphony, greater Voice
selection, expanded Voice parameters, and integrated effect processing.
XG is a major enhancement of the GM System Level 1 format, and was developed by Yamaha specifically to provide more
Voices and variations, as well as greater expressive control over Voices and effects, and to ensure compatibility of data well
into the future.
GS was developed by the Roland Corporation. In the same way as Yamaha XG, GS is a major enhancement of the GM specifically to provide more Voices and Drum kits and their variations, as well as greater expressive control over Voices and
effects.
The Yamaha XF format enhances the SMF (Standard MIDI File) standard with greater functionality and open-ended expandability for the future. This instrument is capable of displaying lyrics when an XF file containing lyric data is played.
“SFF (Style File Format)” is an original Style file format by Yamaha which uses a unique conversion system to provide highquality automatic accompaniment based on a wide range of chord types. “SFF GE (Guitar Edition)” is an enhanced format of
SFF, which features improved note transposition for guitar tracks.

Extraordinarily expressive and realistic Voices
page 35
The PSR-S970/S770 has a comprehensive and sonically
stunning set of authentic Voices, and gives you the tools to
play these Voices more naturally and with greater
expressiveness.
Play along with a backing band
page 48
The Styles of the PSR-S970/S770 make it possible to perform
in a wide variety of music genres with full instrumental
accompaniment, just by playing chords. Moreover, the PSRS970 features Audio Styles which bring a fresh level of realism
and expressiveness, featuring actual audio recordings of topclass studio musicians. These impart all the original feel,
ambience and excitement to the drums and percussion parts
of the Style, and retain the subtle nuances and grooves that
are difficult to reproduce using the preset drum kits.
Voice and Style expandability
page 46
The PSR-S970/S770 is an open-ended instrument that lets you continually expand the available content for your creative
explorations. Featured on our special website (http://www.yamaha.com/awk/) are many Voices and Styles (called
Expansion Pack data) that you can get and load to the PSR-S970/S770. By using the “Yamaha Expansion Manager”
software, you can manage the variety of Expansion Packs and create your own custom Pack for installing on your
instrument.
Powerful DSP effect for enhancing the sound
page 42
The PSR-S970/S770 has new and high-quality effect types, including Real Distortion and Real Reverb. On the PSR-S970,
these also include VCM effects that use the same technology as the professional-level processing on Yamaha’s high-end
mixers. It is provided with beautifully designed virtual panel displays, with highly intuitive controls—just like actual effect
devices.
Audio playing and recording with a USB flash drive
Audio files (WAV or MP3 format) saved to a USB flash drive can
be played back on the instrument. You can also record your
performance as audio files (WAV format) to a USB flash drive—
making it easy to edit your recordings on computer as desired,
and share them over the Internet, or burn your own original CDs.
The instrument also provides a variety of advanced, convenient
audio playback and processing functions, including Time Stretch,
which lets you slow down or speed up an audio file without
changing the pitch, and Pitch Shift, which allows you to change
the pitch without affecting the time. Moreover, a Vocal Cancel
function effectively attenuates the vocals which may be
positioned in the center of a file, allowing you to sing “karaoke”
style with just instrumental backing.

Connect a microphone and sing along with your keyboard performance
page 88
Versatile real-time controller — Live Control
Welcome to Digital Workstation
You can directly connect a microphone and use a variety of
sophisticated processing tools. The PSR-S970 features an
amazing Vocal Harmony function, which automatically produces
backup vocal harmonies for lead vocals that you sing into a
microphone. You can even change the gender of the harmony
voices — for example, adding female backup to your own male
voice (or vice versa) — or use the Vocal Doubler to make your
single voice sound like many. The PSR-S970 also has a Synth
Vocoder feature, recreating that popular effect for a variety of
luscious, other-worldly sounds.
Both the PSR-S970 and PSR-S770 let you connect an electric
guitar, and you can even use powerful DSP effects to process the
guitar sound instead, and play that along with the keyboard
sounds.
page 40
The two knobs to which various functions can be assigned
lets you intuitively control your performance in real-time. For
example, you can use the knobs to control the brightness
(cutoff frequency) of the sound being played or to control the
volume balance between the parts such as Voice and Style.
Thus you can easily add variations to the sound without
interrupting your performance.
You can also control your performance easily by using the
two wheels — PITCH BEND and MODULATION. The [PITCH
BEND] wheel lets you bend the notes up or down, while the
[MODULATION] wheel can be used to apply a vibrato effect
to the notes you play (page 39).
Playing with Arpeggios
page 44
You can play arpeggios (broken chords) by simply
pressing the appropriate notes on the keyboard,
allowing you to instantly and automatically have
complex and otherwise difficult-to-play phrases
backing your performance.
Explore the Demos
page 19
The Demos showcase the instrument’s high-quality sounds, the variety of advanced functions, and provide helpful
information for learning about your new keyboard.
These are just a few of the many functions that enhance your musical enjoyment and expand your
creative and performance possibilities. Try them out and enjoy your new keyboard!

Voice Characteristics
The Voice characteristics are indicated above the Voice name — S.Art!, MegaVoice, Live!, Cool!, Sweet!, etc.
• S.Art! (Super Articulation) Voices
The word “articulation” in music usually refers to the transition or continuity
between notes. This is often reflected in specific performance techniques, such as
staccato, legato and slur. You can call up helpful information on how to play these
Voices by pressing the [6 ] (INFO) button on the Voice Selection display.
• Drums/Live!Drums/SFX/Live!SFX Voices (called up via the [DRUM KIT]
button)
These let you play various drums and percussion instruments or SFX (sound effects)
sounds on the keyboard, collected together in what are called Drum/SFX kits. For
details, see the “Drum/SFX Kit List” of the Data List on the website.
• Organ Flutes Voices (called up via the [ORGAN FLUTES] button)
These let you recreate all of the classic organ sounds by adjusting the flute footage
levels and the percussive sounds, just like on conventional organs. For details, refer
to page 45.
NOTE
• S.Art! Voices are only compatible
with other models which have those
types of Voices installed. Any Song
or Style data you’ve created on the
instrument using these Voices will
not sound properly when played
back on other instruments.
• S.Art! Voices sound differently
depending on the keyboard range,
velocity, touch, etc. Hence, if you
turn on HARMONY/ARPEGGIO
(page 42), change the transpose setting (page 38) or change the Voice
Set parameters (page 47), unexpected or undesired sounds may
result.
For information about other Voice types, refer to the Reference Manual on the
website.

Applying Voice Effects
You can apply various effects to enhance or change the sound of the keyboard parts (LEFT, RIGHT 1 and 2). The
effects can be turned on or off by using the following buttons.
These effects only apply to the
selected part (the PART SELECT
button is on).
• HARMONY/ARPEGGIO
The Harmony or Arpeggio is applied to the right-hand Voices. Refer to “Applying
Harmony/Echo to Your Right-hand Melody” (see below) or “Triggering Arpeggios
with Your Right Hand” (page 44).
• TOUCH
This button turns the Touch Response of the keyboard on or off. When off, the same
volume is produced no matter how strongly or softly you play the keyboard.
NOTE
You can change the Touch Response
type. For instructions, refer to the Reference Manual on the website.
• SUSTAIN
When this Sustain function is on, all notes played on the keyboard with right-hand
part (RIGHT 1 and 2) have a longer sustain.
• MONO
When this button is on, the part’s Voice is played monophonically (only one note at
the time) with last note priority, letting you play single, lead sounds such as brass
instruments more realistically. Depending on the Voice, Portamento may be
produced when notes are played with legato.
When this button is off, the part’s Voice is played polyphonically.
• DSP/DSP VARI.
With the digital effects built into the instrument, you can add ambience and depth to
your music in a variety of ways — such as adding reverb that makes you sound like
you are playing in a concert hall.
The [DSP] button is used to turn the DSP (Digital Signal Processor) effect on or off
for the currently selected keyboard part.
The [DSP VARI.] button is used to change between variations of the DSP effect. For
example, this could be used to change the rotating speed (slow/fast) of the rotary
speaker effect while you play.
NOTE
Portamento is a function that creates a
smooth transition in pitch from the
first note played on the keyboard to the
next.
NOTE
The DSP type can be changed. On the
Voice Selection display, select [5 ]
(VOICE SET)  TAB [E][F]
EFFECT/EQ  [A]/[B] 2 DSP. For

Styles
– Playing Rhythm and Accompaniment –
The instrument features various accompaniment and rhythmic
backing patterns (called “Styles”) in a variety of different musical
genres including pop, jazz, and many others. The Style features
Auto Accompaniment, letting you produce automatic accompaniment playback simply by playing “chords” with your left

section is shown on the Main display (page 24).
NOTE
Press the [START/STOP] button to stop Style playback.
NOTE

Style Characteristics
The Style type and its defining characteristics are indicated above the Style name. There are various Style
characteristics; however, only the following ones are covered here. For information on others, refer to the Reference
Manual on the website.
160% of the default tempo
• DJ Styles
These Styles can be selected from the category called up via the [DANCE] button.
These contain their own special chord progressions, so you can add chord changes to
your performance simply by changing the root key. The Multi Pad (page 76) data in
the “DJ Phrase” folder are specially created for these Styles. You can call up the
suitable Multi Pads by using the One Touch Setting function (page 53).
• Audio Styles (PSR-S970)
The audio Styles (+Audio) have been specially produced by adding audio recordings
of studio musicians playing in various recording studios worldwide. This adds all the
natural feel, ambience and warmth to the drums and percussion of the Style, giving
your performance greater expressive potential. Specifically, it retains the subtle
nuances and grooves that are difficult to reproduce using the preset drum/percussion
kit. Yamaha Time Stretch Technology allows the audio to follow your tempo
changes without changing pitch, so everything stays in perfect sync.
NOTE
You cannot specify the chord type,
such as major and minor, when using
the DJ Styles.
NOTE
• If the tempo is set to over 160% of
the default, the audio part is muted.
The maximum tempo (at which the
audio part can be played) is shown
in brackets at the upper right corner
of the Style name.
• Keep in mind that the audio Styles
may take more time to load than others, and that they may have certain
restrictions and differ in the specific
functions that can be handled.
Style file compatibility
This instrument uses the SFF GE file format (page 8). This instrument can play back existing SFF files, but they will be
saved in the SFF GE format when the file is saved (or pasted) in this instrument. Please keep in mind that the saved file
can only be played back on instruments that are compatible with the SFF GE format.

Microphone/Guitar Input
– Using a Microphone or Guitar with the Instrument –
By connecting a microphone to the [MIC/GUITAR INPUT] jack,
you can enjoy singing along with your keyboard performance or
with Song playback. The instrument outputs your vocals through
the built-in speakers. Moreover, on the PSR-S970, you can
automatically apply various Vocal Harmony effects to your voice
as you sing, or you can use Synth Vocoder to graft the unique
characteristics of your voice onto synthesizer and other sounds.
You can also connect a guitar to the [MIC/GUITAR INPUT] jack,
and output the sound from the speakers of the PSR-S970/S770.
Connecting a Microphone/Guitar
1
Before connecting a microphone or guitar, set the [GAIN] knob
to the minimum position.
NOTE
Make sure to use a conventional
dynamic microphone.
NOTE
• When you are not using a microphone/guitar, disconnect the cable
from the [MIC/GUITAR INPUT] jack.
• Always set the [GAIN] knob to minimum when nothing is connected to
the [MIC/GUITAR INPUT] jack.
Since the [MIC/GUITAR INPUT] jack
is highly sensitive, it may pick up
and produce noise even when nothing is connected.
2
Set the [MIC GUITAR] switch.
When connecting a microphone, set it to “MIC.” When connecting a guitar, set
it to “GUITAR.”

Troubleshooting
Overall
A click or pop is heard when the power is turned on or off.
This is normal. Electrical current is being applied to the instrument.
The power is automatically turned off.
This is normal and due to the Auto Power Off function. If necessary,
set the parameter of the Auto Power Off function (page 17).
Noise is heard from the instrument’s speakers.
Noise may be heard if a mobile phone is used near the instrument
or if the phone is ringing. Turn off the mobile phone, or use it further
away from the instrument.
Noise is heard from the instrument’s speakers or headphones
when using the instrument with an iPhone/iPad application.
When you use the instrument along with the application on your
iPhone/iPad, we recommend that you set “Airplane Mode” to “ON”
on your iPhone/iPad in order to avoid noise caused by communication.
In the LCD, there are some specific points that are always lit or
unlit.
These are the result of defective pixels and occasionally occur in
TFT-LCDs; they do not indicate a problem in operation.
There is a slight difference in sound quality among different notes
played on the keyboard.
This is normal and is a result of the instrument’s sampling system.
Some Voices have a looping sound.
Some noise or vibrato is noticeable at higher pitches, depending
upon the Voice.
The overall volume is too low or no sound is heard.
The master volume may be set too low. Set it to an appropriate
level with the [MASTER VOLUME] dial.
All keyboard parts are set to off. Use the PART ON/OFF [RIGHT 1]/
[RIGHT 2]/[LEFT] button to turn it on.
The volume of the individual parts may be set too low. Raise the
volume in the BALANCE display (page 57).
Make sure the desired channel is set to ON (pages 56, 65).
Headphones are connected, disabling the speaker output. Unplug
the headphones.
Make sure that the Speaker setting is set to ON: [FUNCTION] 
TAB [E] MENU 1  [J] UTILITY  TAB [E][F] CONFIG 2
Depending on the function assigned to the LIVE CONTROL knob
or how you move the knob, you may not hear the sound properly.
Check the knob settings and reset the value (page 40).
The sound is distorted or noisy.
The volume may be turned up too high. Make sure all relevant volume settings are appropriate.
This may be caused by certain effects or filter settings. Check the
effect or filter settings and change them accordingly, referring to
the Reference Manual.
Not all simultaneously played notes sound.
You are probably exceeding the maximum polyphony (page 110)
of the instrument. When the maximum polyphony is exceeded, the
earliest played notes will stop sounding, letting the latest played
notes sound.
The keyboard volume is lower than the Song/Style playback volume.
The volume of the keyboard parts may be set too low. Raise the
volume in the BALANCE display (page 57).
The Main display does not appear even when turning the power
on.
This may occur if a USB flash drive has been installed to the instrument. Installation of some USB flash drives may result in a long
interval between turning the power on and appearance of the Main
display. To avoid this, turn the power on after disconnecting the
device.

Troubleshooting
The [FADE IN/OUT] button is on, which mutes the sound. Press the
[FADE IN/OUT] button to turn the function off.

Some characters of the file/folder name are garbled.
The language settings have been changed. Set the appropriate
language for the file/folder name (page 18).
An existing file is not shown.
The file extension (.MID, etc.) may have been changed or deleted.
Manually rename the file, adding the appropriate extension, on a
computer.
Data files with names of more than 50 characters cannot be handled by the instrument. Rename the file, reducing the number of
characters to 50 or less.
Voice
The Voice selected from the Voice Selection display does not
sound.
Check whether or not the selected part is turned on (page 35). If
necessary, press the appropriate PART ON/OFF button to turn the
part on.
A strange “flanging” or “doubling” sound occurs. The sound is
slightly different each time the keys are played.
The RIGHT 1 and RIGHT 2 parts are set to “ON,” and both parts
are set to play the same Voice. Turn off the RIGHT 2 part or change
the Voice of one of the parts.
Some Voices will jump an octave in pitch when played in the
upper or lower registers.
This is normal. Some Voices have a pitch limit which, when
reached, causes this type of pitch shift.
Style
The Style does not start even when the [START/STOP] button is
pressed.
The Rhythm channel of the selected Style may not contain any
data. Turn the [ACMP] button on and play left-hand section on the
keyboard to sound the accompaniment part of the Style.
Only the rhythm channel plays.
Make sure the Auto Accompaniment function is turned on; press
the [ACMP] button.
Make sure to play keys in the chord section of the keyboard (pages
58, 59).
The Track Mute function may have been assigned to the LIVE
CONTROL knob(s). Check the knob settings and reset the value
(page 40).
Styles in a USB flash drive cannot be selected.
If the size of the Style data is large (about 120 KB or greater), the
Style cannot be selected because the data is too large to be handled by the instrument.
Song
Songs cannot be selected.
This may be because the language settings have been changed.
Set the appropriate language for the Song file name.
If the size of the Song data is large (about 300 KB or greater), the
Song cannot be selected because the data is too large to be handled by the instrument.
Song playback does not start.
The Song has been stopped at the end of the Song data. Return to
the beginning of the Song by pressing the SONG [J] (STOP) button.
In the case of a Song to which write-protect has been applied,
there are some restrictions and playback may not be possible. For
details, refer to page 27.
Song playback stops before the Song is finished.
The Guide function is turned on. (In this case, playback is “waiting”
for the correct key to be played.) Press the [GUIDE] button to turn
off the Guide function.
The measure number is different from that of the score in the
Song Position display, shown by pressing the [G](REW)/
[H](FF) buttons.
This happens when playing back music data for which a specific,
fixed tempo is set.
When playing back a Song, some channels do not play.
Playback of these channels may be set to “OFF.” Turn playback on
for those channels that are set to “OFF” (page 65).
The tempo, beat, measure and music notation is not displayed
correctly.
Some Song data for the instrument has been recorded with special
“free tempo” settings. For such Song data, the tempo, beat, measure and music notation will not be displayed correctly.

USB Audio Player/Recorder
A message indicating the USB flash drive is unavailable appears,
and the recording is aborted.
Make sure to use a compatible USB flash drive (page 100).
The USB flash drive may not have enough memory. Check the
recordable time on the display (page 75).
If you are using a USB flash drive to which data has already been
recorded, check first that no important data remains on the device,
then format it (page 101) and try recording again.
Audio files cannot be selected.
The file format may not be compatible with the instrument. The
compatible formats are: MP3 and WAV. DRM protected files cannot
be played back.
An existing recorded file is played back at a different volume
compared to when it was recorded.
The audio playback volume has been changed. Setting the volume
value to 100 plays back the file at the same volume as when it was
recorded (page 74).
Mixing Console
The sound seems strange or different than expected when
changing a rhythm Voice (Drum Kit, etc.) of the Style or Song
from the Mixer.
When changing the rhythm/percussion Voices (Drum Kits, etc.) of
the Style and Song from the VOICE parameter, the detailed settings
related to the drum voice are reset, and in some cases you may be
unable to restore the original sound. In the case of Song playback,
you can restore the original sound by returning to the beginning of
the Song and playing back from that point. In the case of Style
play, you can restore the original sound by selecting the same Style
again.
Microphone/Vocal Harmony, Guitar
The microphone or guitar input signal cannot be recorded.
The microphone input signal cannot be recorded by Song recording. Use the USB Audio Player/Recorder function (page 74).
(PSR-S970) Harmony can be heard in addition to the microphone
sound.
Vocal Harmony is set to “ON.” Turn Vocal Harmony off (page 91).
(PSR-S970) The Vocal Harmony effect sounds distorted or out-oftune.
Your vocal microphone may be picking up extraneous sounds,
such as the Style sound from the instrument. In particular, bass
sounds can cause mistracking of the Vocal Harmony. To remedy
this:
• Sing as closely to the microphone as possible.
• Use a unidirectional microphone.
• Turn down the Master volume, Style volume, or Song volume
control (pages 18, 57).
Foot Pedal
Change the polarity settings: [FUNCTION]  TAB [E] MENU 1 
[D] CONTROLLER  [I] (PEDAL POLARITY).
Troubleshooting
The on/off setting of the footswitch connected to the FOOT
PEDAL jack is reversed.

1-YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY
ON ARRANGER WORKSTATION KEYBOARDS
Thank you for selecting a Yamaha product. Yamaha products are designed and manufactured to provide a high level of defect-free
performance. Yamaha Corporation of America (“Yamaha”) is proud of the experience and craftsmanship that goes into each and
every Yamaha product. Yamaha sells its products through a network of reputable, specially authorized dealers and is pleased to offer
you, the Original Owner, the following Limited Warranty, which applies only to products that have been (1) directly purchased from
Yamaha’s authorized dealers in the fifty states of the USA and District of Columbia (the “Warranted Area”) and (2) used exclusively in
the Warranted Area. Yamaha suggests that you read the Limited Warranty thoroughly, and invites you to contact your authorized
Yamaha dealer or Yamaha Customer Service if you have any questions.
Coverage: Yamaha will, at its option, repair or replace the product covered by this warranty if it becomes defective, malfunctions or
otherwise fails to conform with this warranty under normal use and service during the term of this warranty, without charge for labor
or materials. Repairs may be performed using new or refurbished parts that meet or exceed Yamaha specifications for new parts. If
Yamaha elects to replace the product, the replacement may be a reconditioned unit. You will be responsible for any installation or
removal charges and for any initial shipping charges if the product(s) must be shipped for warranty service. However, Yamaha will
pay the return shipping charges to any destination within the USA if the repairs are covered by the warranty. This warranty does not
cover (a) damage, deterioration or malfunction resulting from accident, negligence, misuse, abuse, improper installation or operation
or failure to follow instructions according to the Owner’s Manual for this product; any shipment of the product (claims must be
presented to the carrier); repair or attempted repair by anyone other than Yamaha or an authorized Yamaha Service Center; (b) any
unit which has been altered or on which the serial number has been defaced, modified or removed; (c) normal wear and any periodic
maintenance; (d) deterioration due to perspiration, corrosive atmosphere or other external causes such as extremes in temperature
or humidity; (e) damages attributable to power line surge or related electrical abnormalities, lightning damage or acts of God; or (f)
RFI/EMI (Interference/noise) caused by improper grounding or the improper use of either certified or uncertified equipment, if
applicable. Any evidence of alteration, erasing or forgery of proof-of-purchase documents will cause this warranty to be void. This
warranty covers only the Original Owner and is not transferable.
In Order to Obtain Warranty Service: Warranty service will only be provided for defective products within the Warranted
Area. Contact your local authorized Yamaha dealer who will advise you of the procedures to be followed. If this is not successful,
contact Yamaha at the address, telephone number or website shown below. Yamaha may request that you send the defective product
to a local authorized Yamaha Servicer or authorize return of the defective product to Yamaha for repair. If you are uncertain as to
whether a dealer has been authorized by Yamaha, please contact Yamaha’s Service Department at the number shown below, or
check Yamaha’s website at www.Yamaha.com. Product(s) shipped for service should be packed securely and must be accompanied
by a detailed explanation of the problem(s) requiring service, together with the original or a machine reproduction of the bill of sale or
other dated, proof-of-purchase document describing the product, as evidence of warranty coverage. Should any product submitted
for warranty service be found ineligible therefore, an estimate of repair cost will be furnished and the repair will be accomplished only
if requested by you and upon receipt of payment or acceptable arrangement for payment.
Limitation of Implied Warranties and Exclusion of Damages: ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING
WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE SHALL BE LIMITED IN DURATION TO
THE APPLICABLE PERIOD OF TIME SET FORTH ABOVE. YAMAHA SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR FOR DAMAGES BASED UPON INCONVENIENCE, LOSS OF USE, DAMAGE TO ANY OTHER
EQUIPMENT OR OTHER ITEMS AT THE SITE OF USE OR INTERRUPTION OF PERFORMANCES OR ANY CONSEQUENCES.
YAMAHA’S LIABILITY FOR ANY DEFECTIVE PRODUCT IS LIMITED TO REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF THE PRODUCT, AT
YAMAHA’S OPTION. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS OR THE
EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION
MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. This Warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to
state. This is the only express warranty applicable to the product specified herein; Yamaha neither assumes nor authorizes anyone to
assume for it any other express warranty.
