Important Safety Notice
The Q-chord has been designed as a live performance instrument, and so we felt that the ‘power off’ facility usually associated with battery powered items can be frustrating at times and has not been built into the design of the instrument.
Whilst this will give you uninterrupted use of the Q-chord during a live performance, it does have one drawback:
Because of the high power of the instrument, current drain is heavy and cheaper batteries will wear out in a matter of hours. Although unlikely, it is even possible that leakage may occur with some lower grade batteries if they begin to overheat.
Although we may supply batteries with the unit, these are simply to get you started with your new Q-chord and should not be used for long periods of time. If you intend to use the instrument with batteries then you should purchase heavier duty units.
We always recommend using the AC/DC adapter available from your Q-chord agent or Suzuki Europe. Ltd
! ALWAYS TURN THE INSTRUMENT OFF WHEN NOT IN USE !
! ALWAYS REMOVE THE BATTERIES WHEN NOT IN USE !
Using the correct mains adapter.Use only recommended AC/DC adapter (available from your Q-chord agent or Suzuki Europe. Ltd). This should be a regulated negative polarity. Do not use cheaper low amp multi adapters, these are prone to overheating or burn out. It is always advisable to remove AC/DC mains adapters from the supply when not in use.
If you are in doubt always check with your Q-Chord supplier or contact us
