THR is designed to fit where, when, and how you play when you’re not on stage. With big amp response, incredible effects, and hi-fi stereo sound in a package that’s built to meet all of your off-stage needs, you’re about to begin a new chapter in your playing.
Conventional amps work great on stage. But what about everywhere else you play? Most amps are just small versions of stage amps - but how you play at home isn’t just a small version of how you play on stage, so why would an amp based on that really give you what you need?
THR is the first amp truly designed to fit how you play off-stage. Everything you need is here: tones that push amp modeling to a new level, recreating the exact response and experience of playing a tube amp thanks to Yamaha’s exclusive Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology; ultra-realistic reverbs and effects to complement your playing and push you further; and true hi-fi quality stereo audio playback that no guitar amp can get close to - all wrapped up in a package designed to mirror how you really play off-stage.
You have your big amp that sounds great cranked up to 10. Maybe you have your practical, smaller amp for rehearsals and smaller shows. Now you have the perfect third amp. The amp for everything else, THR. Prepare to spend a lot more time playing guitar…
Developed by a team of guitarists in search of the ultimate tone, THR delivers the sound that you want and the feeling that you need. Every part of its design, from the preamp to the speaker enclosure, is focused on delivering an outstanding playing experience that suits its ultra-compact size.
Thanks to Yamaha's exclusive Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology, stadium filling volume isn't a pre-requisite to the unmistakable tone and feel of a cranked amp. VCM gives THR the power to model real amps incredibly accurately, with each control responding and working exactly as it does on the real thing. Turn the master up on THR and it doesn't just get louder, the gain, tone and compression characteristics change in exactly the same way they do on the real thing. Add in modeled stompbox effects and incredible reverbs and delays using technology based on Yamaha's industry standard audio mixers, and you have the recipe for a sound that will make you want to keep playing all night...
