A New Way to Experience your Electric-Acoustic Guitar

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.

VCM Amp Models

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. Effects that enhance and complement your playing combine with room-filling reverbs and delays to push your playing to new levels. And thanks to THR'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…

THR5A offers four acoustic mic simulations and one clean amp modeling for electric guitar:

  • CONDENSER
  • DYNAMIC
  • TUBE
  • NYLON
  • EG CLN

VCM Effects

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 (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-Fi 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.

Battery Powered or AC Powered

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

Cubase AI

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

THR Editor

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.

USB Connection

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 & In Built Tuner

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

Questions & Answers

Answer

Hi Jerry, thanks for getting in touch. If you tend to prefer clean electro-acoustic tones, the THR5A is the one to go for - its microphone modelling is superb and hugely playable.

Answer

That's right; the THR10C focuses on tube amp modelling but does include the 'ACO' setting - this simulates the tone from a studio microphone (either with an electro-acoustic or electric guitar) through an acoustic amp. The 'EG CLN' setting on THR5A models a low-gain, clean tube amp sound (which can be used with electro-acoustic or electric guitar).

It's fine to use pedals with the THR Series (though you do have high quality effects built into each model).

We think that if you're after an amplifier for an electro-acoustic guitar (or an electric guitar always played with a clean tone), the THR5A is your best option. 

If you're looking for a good all-round model for both electric and electro-acoustic guitars, try the THR10 v2 - this has a variety of tube amp models as well as clean, acoustic and bass modes.
