When attaching the BeatJack, place a finger between the BeatJack and the installation position to slowly attach the shaker to the position. We recommend using a sheet of cushioning or a Docking Base to reduce the impact on your instrument during the installation.
Contents of BeatJack are called Sound balls. You can change the sound by the difference of shape, size, weight and quantity of sound balls. Mixing different kinds of sound balls gives you a fun to create an original sound.
Positioning Magnet is used to attach a BeatJack or a Docking Base to an instrument. BeatJack or Docking Base is mounted by attracting a Positioning Magnet and a BeatJack or a Docking Base each other through sound board. Be sure to check the magnetic poles of the BeatJack and Positioning Magnet before the attachment.

Adjust the shape that is easy to handle depending on the instrument and the position to be mounted, and put a magnet on the tip of the Positioning Magnet Setter. For less impact of attracting the magnets, press the magnet on the sound board, and attract the BeatJack ( or the Docking Base ) and the magnet slowly by a finger sandwiching a finger then taking the finger off between the installation position and the BeatJack ( or the Docking Base ).
Docking Base is made of a material that attracts magnets, and it is used to keepa Positioning Magnet set on sound board. A Positioning Magnet can be easily mounted at any position with a Docking Base, so a BeatJack can be quickly attached and detached. When removing the BeatJack, pull the BeatJack apart while holding the both ends of the Docking Base with your fingers on the sound board. When removing the Docking Base itself, press a end of it with your finger to lift the center plate of the Docking Base and take it off. Before removing the Docking Base insert a Positioning Magnet Setter inside of the instrument and attract the Positioning Magnet and the Setter. Pull the Setter with the magnet out after removing the Docking Base. Use a hand instead of a Positioning Magnet setter if a hand can be inserted inside of the instrument. There are two kinds of Docking Base. Docking Base α ( alpha type ) has a ribs with grooves, and by engaging the convex of the BeatJack, the aspect of the BeatJack can be kept so that the BeatJack does not turn due to the vibration of the sound board. The aspect can be turned easily by hand, so you can play the BeatJack at a angle of your choice.
Tap Point Sticker
Tap Point Sticker is a sticky sponge sheet. Stick it on the tapping position of an instrument. Because the attack sound of the tap is softened by tapping on the Tap Point Sticker, the sound of the BeatJack is more pronounced. The size for ukulele. If you are concerned about the influence of adhesive on your instrument, please do not use Tap Point Sticker.
Double Adhesive Tape
Double Adhesive Tape is used to fix a Positioning Magnet. If the position to use the BeatJack do not be changed, fixing the position of the Positioning Magnet with a Double Adhesive Tape makes it easy to attach and detach the BeatJack. Double Adhesive Tape is not included in any BeatJack kit and sold separately. It may be difficult to remove the Positioning Magnet after fixing with a Double Adhesive Tape. Please use the tape at your own risk.
Transparent Sticker for protection
Please use if you are concerned about the friction between the instrument and the BeatJack or its accessories. The sticker is separated into a lattice pattern layer and a transparent layer as peeling . The transparent layer is a protection sticker. Put the sticker on the instrument surface where the BeatJack is positioned. The sticker uses static electricity instead of adhesion, and it can be re-sticked several times without sticking.
Felt Sheet ( Cushioning )
Felt Sheet is used when the BeatJack is installed on a surface with strong oscillation such as a skin head of a percussion. By sandwiching a Felt sheet between the beat jack and the strike head surface, the BeatJack can be inhibited from bouncing due to the strong oscillation.
Rubber Sheet ( Cushioning / Nonslipping )
Rubber Sheet is used between a BeatJack and soundboard as nonslipping. Rubber Sheet inhibits a BeatJack from moving or turning. Also used as cushioning.
There is also an interesting use besides the use as a pouch. Please see a video (will be posted later) for the details.
