Introducing the Yamaha THR5 10W compact electric guitar amplifierDesigned from the ground up to be the perfect amp for when you're not playing live, the THR is at the forefront of the “Third Amp” revolution—a new concept from Yamaha aimed specifically at guitarists who are serious about their off-stage sound, and don't always have access to an elaborate studio or stage setup. Whether you're warming up backstage for the next big gig, brainstorming with the band at the hotel, or just jamming around a campfire, the THR is the perfect amp for everywhere you play that isn't on-stage.
This five-model series of portable guitar amplifiers utilizes Yamaha's acclaimed Virtual Circuitry Technology to deliver authentic tube amp sound, incredibly realistic effects, and hi-fi quality stereo playback, so that no location is too remote, no tone too elusive, for those moments when you just want to play.
The most portable of the THR amps, the THR5 offers a brilliant sound quality and great power, all in a smaller package. Perfect for use at home or when travelling.
VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling)
VCM effects are capable of capturing subtleties that simple digital simulations cannot even approach, going beyond simple simulation and delivering the truly musical performance that makes classic analog gear invaluable even in today's digital production environment.
Yamaha hi-hi audio technology
THR was developed with Yamaha's award-winning AV division to offer true hi-fi stereo sound and a new experience in guitar amplifiers. The exclusive, specially designed speaker enclosure is optimised to handle both guitar and stereo playback sounds making THR uniquely capable of giving you amazing tone for both your guitar and your track from a compact, portable amp.
New extended stereo technology
THR incorporates Yamaha's new Extended Stereo Technology to create an incredibly wide, spacious audio image. Stereo tracks and studio quality reverb take on a depth unimaginable from such a small enclosure.
THR features dual effects circuits providing natural, ultra-musical effects. One circuit handles stompbox-style modulation effects while the other provides outstanding studio-grade delays and reverbs. With the THR Editor software, both effects processors can be edited in incredible depth.
THR's design provides stereo playback from your smartphone or other device through its AUX jack or direct from your computer via the USB connection.
THR is bundled with Cubase AI, Steinberg's professional music production application that offers full-fledged recording and editing.
Battery powered or AC powered
THR's two-way power supply lets the unit operate on AC (PSU supplied) or battery power.
THR Session is an iOS app which is optimized for THR. You can slow down songs without losing audio quality, change the pitch or repeat any segment of a song to learn even the trickiest guitar part. It even allows you to cancel out the original guitar sound; it’s like playing a session with your dream band! This app is the perfect audio toolbox for today’s guitarist and with a Yamaha THR amp, gives you a practice experience like no other.
