To keep your ARIUS in optimum condition, we recommend that you periodically follow the maintenance points below.
Instrument and Bench Maintenance
• When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry or slightly damp cloth.
Do not use paint thinners, solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.
• In the case of a model with a polished finish, gently remove dust and dirt with a soft cloth. Do not wipe too hard since
small particles of dirt can scratch the instrument's finish.
To keep the surface polished, apply commercially available piano polisher to a soft cloth and wipe the instrument's
surface with it. Then, polish it with a separate cloth. Before using any piano polisher, make sure to read the instructions
for proper usage.
• Tighten the screws of the instrument and bench periodically.
Pedal Cleaning
As with an acoustic piano, pedals may become tarnished over years of use. When this occurs, polish the pedal with a
compound designed for piano pedals. Before using the compound, make sure to read the instructions for proper usage.
Unlike an acoustic piano, this instrument does not need to be tuned by an expert (although the pitch can be user-adjusted
to match other instruments). This is because the pitch of digital instruments is always maintained perfectly.
When transporting
You can load this instrument onto a truck, either fully
assembled or disassembled. When doing so, do not lean
the instrument (especially the keyboard unit) against a
wall, and make sure to lay it horizontally in the truck. When
transporting by truck, do not subject the instrument to
excessive vibration or shock. If you transport the
instrument fully assembled, make sure to check all the
screws then tighten them as necessary.
The volume level does not change at all regardless of whether you play the keyboard soft
or hard.
The volume level does not change much when you play the keyboard soft or hard.
This is the standard piano touch response.
The volume level changes very widely from pianissimo to fortissimo to facilitate dynamic
and dramatic expression. You have to hit the keys hard to produce a loud sound.
