Hold Lever

Good afternoon,

I went through the manual, spent some time messing with it and still do not get:

What is the hold lever for on the handle??

Originally i thought it was a standby so you do not wear the drums, but doesn't seem so.


Thanks,

Dale Guthormsen

The one on the top handle with the REC button in the middle of it? Page 25 (24 for the Z5E or P). The HOLD button enables the REC button on the top handle. It's there so you don't accidentally start or stop recording using the top REC button on the handle while holding it.

You mean I need to do more than look at the pictures?? LOL

Youd think it would not be under tips sense it is a control.


Thanks,
