Yamaha THR5 Desktop Guitar Combo Amp

Developed by a team of guitarists in search of the ultimate tone, the Yamaha THR5 delivers the sound that you want and the feeling that you need. Effects that enhance and complement your playing combine with room-filling reverbs and delays to push your playing to greater levels. And thanks to the Yamaha THR5's unique design and focus, stadium-filling volume isn't a pre-requisite - everything about this amp is designed to fit the way you play, right down to the need to keep it quiet sometimes. With tone and feel like this, you'll appreciate the ability to keep playing all night!

Most of THR's effects feature VCM effects processors. Based on the technology used in Yamaha's professional audio mixers, VCM effects give unsurpassed realism and quality.

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.

THR was developed with Yamaha's award-winning AV division to offer true hi-fi stereo sound and a greater experience in guitar amplifiers. The exclusive, specially designed speaker enclosure is optimized 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.

THR incorporates Yamaha's 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's two-way power supply lets the unit operate on AC (PSU supplied) or battery power.

THR is bundled with Cubase AI, Steinberg's professional music production application that offers full-fledged recording and editing.

The THR Editor, available for download from http://download.yamaha.com, offers deep editing of amp and effect parameters using a computer. Additional in-depth controls include compressor and noise gate functions.

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.

Tap tempo function to quickly set delay time.The built-in chromatic tuner features accurate, stable tuning and an easy to read display.

THR's Virtual Tube Illumination includes a simulated orange tube glow from the metal speaker grille.

"The ultimate home and studio amplifier?"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I just got the little thing and played with it for a while and I am in awe. The tiny retro-designed package includes everything a guitarist needs for indoor guitar playing and recording! The sound is clear, crystalline and rings in a wide range of frequencies making it hard to believe this quality tone eminates from such a tiny box.The various tone-tweaking effects and controls run a full gamut as might be expected from a high-end multieffect and not a home use oriented amp. Combinations of amp model with modulation and reverb-delay effects - all at professional level allow almost endless sound options. I own an electric with a piezo circuit and it handles the 'acoustic' tones in stride - ringing like a true acoustic. Switch to the magnetic and turn the knob to brit asmp model and I got searing lead and hard-rock tones! Amazing versatiliy.I also tried to use this amp as a pre-module or an effect for recording direct into a multi-track - works wonderfully with stereo sound making my guitar fill the soundscape like when using a profesional studio effect rack. In short - A versatile, high quality, multi-use-multi-purpose guitar amp you can use for recording, practice, or playing with friends at home. It can also be plugged through into a PA if you'd like to carry these cool tones to a large gig. An excellent amp!
