View Full Version : mounting click station

is there any way to mount a Yamaha click station?
I'd misread somewhere it could be mounted on an L-arm but that seems not to be the case. It now looks as tho it will mount with an "optional mount" but I can't find said optional mount anywhere on the net - I was gonna order one from Wembley Drum Centre cos my click station arrived today with a hole in the LCD display so it's being exchanged early next week - I want to have all the gear so I can just mount it up and get going!

Nobody else mounted Yammie click station? I find this slightly difficult to believe!

I'm finding it hard to believe that no one here has a Yamaha click station and further still that they haven't mounted it to a cymbal stand...

All the information you need can be found on the net/Yamaha catalogs - to install a Clickstation on a L rod type mounting system you have to purchase the MAS1 adapter. If you want to install the metronome on a microphone stand or a classic cymbal stand, you need to buy the BMS 10A adapter.

Thanks, I had a look on the Yamaha Europe web page and couldn;t see the info on there about mounting it and the instruction book is ridiculously vague.
Cheers for that!

Glad to have been of some service. How are you liking the CS?

It hasn't arrived yet haha, it's meant to arrive tomorrow I think. I had a bit of a game with Newcastle Drum Centre, the first one they sent was broken and they said they should be able to get me one for this coming week, when I spoke to them on Friday they said that Yamaha UK had none in stock and wouldn't be getting them til January, so I cancelled the order and ordered one from Wembley Drum Centre and it'll be here this week haha. I'll post back when I get it, but the broken one looked like a good bit of kit, beside the hole in the LCD! I was recommended the CS over the Tama Rhythm Watch and everyone I've spoken to about them has said the CS is leagues ahead of the RW.

I don't really understand, is the Yamaha catalogue calling an L-rod a cowbell holder? I've never mounted a cowbell, so please excuse my ignorance!
Cheers for posting that up, it makes things a bit clearer when you can visualise it!

OK, my click station came today and it is an awesome bit of kit, but I am a bit confused by the booklet. Can you program it so that it will, for instance, play 4 bars in 3 and a bar in 4? cos the way I'm reading the chain function is like that but I can't get the chain function to work properly. Can someone describe exactly what the step function is meant to do? I'm a bit confused, but it's gonna be awesome for rudiments and stuff.

Is there some bias against the click station or something? Or is it only Joey and Drum-Head that have one of these? I'm kind of confused by the book. I think it's probably the way it has translated from Japanese to English, but I'm totally confused by how to make a chain of different time signatures with this thing!

I have one but I've only used it for 4/4 stuff. I'll see if I can figure it out for you. Gimme a day or so.
