Overview by GAK

The THR5A is specially designed to work with electric-acoustic guitars, whereas most THR amps are designed for electric guitars. It has realistic microphone modelling including condenser, dynamic, and tube mic emulations, mics for nylon and steel-string guitars, and even a clean amp model for electric guitar. It also includes built-in effects to really enhance your sound - compression, reverb, delay, flanger, phaser, tremolo, chorus and more. The THR5A only weighs 2kg, so you’ll have no problem taking it wherever you go. It can also be used as a recording interface, has a built-in tuner, and a headphone output. This is a great ‘Third Amp’, meaning it’s not just a large amp made smaller, but it is specially designed to be a portable unit for electric-acoustic guitar players to practice on.

There’s the Yamaha THR5 Modelling Guitar Amp which is more suited to electric guitar players, or if you want more power, you could try the Yamaha THR10II Desktop Amplifier or the Yamaha THR10II Wireless Desktop Amplifier.

THR-II Series

Yamaha THR30II Wireless Desktop Amplifier has 30 watts in total, a Line 6 Relay wireless receiver, Bluetooth, rechargeable battery, a line out for recording. The Yamaha THR30IIA Wireless Acoustic Amplifier is designed for acoustic guitarists who want the same wireless capabilities of other amps in the THR range.

There’s also 20-watt versions in this range - Yamaha THR10II Desktop Amplifier, which is the more conventional wired version, and the Yamaha THR10II Wireless Desktop Amplifier, the wireless version, which also has a rechargeable battery.

THR Series

The amps featured here have 10 watts, with options designed for acoustic guitarists and electric guitarists.

The Yamaha THR5 Modelling Guitar Amp is the little brother of the THR10, with the same great quality but in a more portable form. The THR5 has a few different electric guitar channels, offering five realistic, built-in amp sounds and a USB interface.

The Yamaha THR5A Acoustic Guitar Amp is optimised to work with electric-acoustic guitars, with realistic microphone modelling, and built-in effects that enhance the acoustic sound.

Overview by Yamaha

It’s not a stage amp, but it’s not a practice amp either. THR is something totally new – the amp for everywhere you play that isn’t on stage. Designed from the ground-up to be the perfect amp for the way guitarists really play when they’re not playing live, THR-toting guitarists are joining the tone revolution and rewriting the rules on how your guitar should sound away from the stage.

But what if you like the THR concept but want it more specialized, with even more focus, to get the perfect sound for you? What if you’re a real tone-hound and already know your sound down to the smallest detail, but are constantly on the search for that tiny detail, that certain ‘something’ to perfect it everywhere you play? What if there was a THR that was dialed into a specific tonal direction, a THR that was focused on

the subtleties of tone and dynamics between amps that are similar in most people’s eyes but are worlds apart in the eyes of the experienced?

Get ready to spend even more time playing guitar. You’re going to like this…

THR5A is optimized for use with electric-acoustic and Silent Guitars. Utilising advanced modeling technologies developed by Yamaha, THR5A offers simulations of classic tube condenser and dynamic mics combined with studio-grade effects to create recording-studio tone direct from your guitar and wherever you are.

The only time most electric-acoustic guitars get plugged-in is when they’re on-stage. But by matching your guitar with THR5A the expressive tone of a studio-mic’d acoustic together with incredible effects will unlock more creative expression than ever before for the ultimate practice, writing or recording experience.
