It’s still about the sound
THR desktop amplifiers have revolutionised the guitar amp world since their debut in 2011. The amps established an entirely new 'third amp' concept for players who demand high-quality sound and versatility even when they aren’t on stage or in rehearsal. With this next generation, Yamaha has introduced a new wave of THR amplifiers which have been updated to reflect how players want to connect to their gear, their music, and their sound. Above all, THR remains a peerless desktop amp for players who put a premium on great tone, in a form that fits perfectly anywhere their music takes them.
Welcome to the world of wireless
The THR10 Wireless is a fully cable-free guitar amplifier, with all the freedom and versatility that implies. No cables mean no limits on where you play – stroll around your home, lounge around outdoors, or cut loose in a jam session. Combine this with Bluetooth functionality and the built-in rechargeable battery, and you have a complete wireless package that offers a performance experience like none other. You can even use the mobile editor app over Bluetooth for precise wireless control of your sound in realtime, without even getting up from the sofa. With your THR, guitar, and Line 6 Relay G10T, you are free to explore both your sound and your surroundings. Cord length... no worries. Amp placement... wherever you like. Sound shaping and control... no need to get up. Just choose a location - any location - and play.
Fully Wireless Guitar Amp
All you need to enjoy the freedom that only wireless performance can provide is a compatible THRII Wireless guitar amp, a guitar, and the Line 6 Relay G10T wireless transmitter. The built-in wireless receiver and built-in rechargeable battery mean that you can put your THRII Wireless anywhere you want - on a shelf, on the table, or even in another room - and then just kick back and play, free from the limitations of conventional cable connection.
Wireless Bluetooth Connectivity
Built-in Bluetooth functionality lets you connect the THRII to any Bluetooth-compatible media player for seamless audio playback. Play along with your favourite songs, or just sit back and enjoy the music. You can also use Bluetooth-compatible controller pedals (sold separately) to call up your own customised presets without the need for any manual parameter adjustment or cable connection.
Mobile Editor for iOS & Android
The dedicated THR Remote Mobile Editor app provides users with convenient remote amplifier operation from your smartphone. There’s no need to be directly in front of your amplifier to dial up your guitar sound anymore; just open the app and tap to shape your own unique sound while sitting on your sofa. PC and Mac versions of the editor are also available.
The sound says it all
Our sound design team leveraged everything we know about guitar amp construction, physical modelling, and high-fidelity audio to create the THR series: the most authentic-sounding, versatile desktop amps in the world. Offering massive tone in a compact size, the sound of THR has to be heard to be believed.
Our patented Virtual Circuitry Modelling (VCM) technology simulates each circuit down to the component level, capturing subtleties that typical digital simulations cannot even approach. VCM models the interactions between each component, delivering truly musical performance virtually indistinguishable from the classic analog gear that remains sought after even today.
Hi-Fi Audio Technology
The THR guitar amps were developed with our award-winning AV division to offer true hi-fi stereo sound and ultimately a new experience in guitar amplifiers. The exclusive, specially-designed speaker enclosure is optimised to handle both guitar and audio playback sound making the THR uniquely capable of giving you amazing tone for both your guitar and your favourite music from a compact, portable amp.
Extended Stereo Technology
THR incorporates our new Extended Stereo Technology to create an incredibly wide, spacious stereo audio image. Stereo tracks and studio-quality reverb combine to add a depth to your sound that belies such a small enclosure.
THR features dual 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 remotely.
That sound in your head? We’ve got it
Three banks of amp models offer everything from shimmering cleans through bluesy overdrive and crushing high-gain. Each bank also features a unique bass amp model, mic model for electric-acoustics, and flat mode without any modelling, for anything else you might want to connect.
Look the part
The versatile sound and capabilities of THR amplifiers are reflected in an appearance inspired by decades of iconic amplifiers. Every detail of the design has been meticulously considered, for a form and style that fit perfectly wherever you play.
Simple operation and behaviour
The THR series features the intuitive and instantly familiar controls of your favorite tube amps, so you can quickly dial in your sound without ever needing a menu or manual.
Virtual Tube Illumination
Lights behind the grill provide a familiar glow that will make people wonder if there are tubes inside. The tone will do that too.
Easy to record
The new THR-II series amps are USB Class Compliant, allowing easy connection with PC/Mac and mobile devices without the need to install drivers, so that you can record your guitar in in any location.
Cubase AI / Cubasis LE bundled
THR10IIW is bundled with Cubase AI and Cubasis LE. Cubase AI is Steinberg’s professional music production application that offers full-fledged recording and editing. Cubasis LE is a multi-touch compatible DAW application that allows instant music production on the iPad.
Don’t stop the music
The music doesn’t have to stop just because you’re done practicing, rehearsing, or recording. With hi-fi grade audio speakers, a compact design, and audio playback via Bluetooth or USB, the THR isn’t just for playing guitar, it’s also ideal for use as a portable audio solution.
