Overview

The Yamaha THR10 combo amp packs in everything you need from an off-stage amp. Real tube amp tone and dynamics, great sound at low volume, genuine hi-fi quality stereo playback and full recording capabilities.

Developed by a team of guitarists in search of the ultimate tone, the THR10 combo delivers the sound you want and the feeling 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.

Most of THR's effects feature VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling) 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.

The THR10 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 optimized to handle both guitar and stereo playback sounds making it uniquely capable of giving you amazing tone for both your guitar and your track from a compact, portable amp.

The THR10 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. Also bundled with Cubase AI, Steinberg's professional music production application it offers full-fledged recording and editing. The THR Editor offers deep editing of amp and effect parameters using your 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. The user memory function lets you save up to five amp settings of all controller and switch settings for quick recall. The tap tempo function allows you to quickly set delay time. A built-in chromatic tuner features accurate, stable tuning and an easy to read display.

Finally, the THR10's Virtual Tube Illumination includes a simulated orange tube glow from the metal speaker grille.

      Comments about Yamaha THR10 Modeling Combo Amp:

      Amp for band practice. Enough power to compete without blowing your ears out. Enough simple effects for practice without needing to carry and set up a bunch of junk. My band mates were amazed at the tone. The gain, delay and reverb are great. You just twist a knob to suit your needs. If you can't get what you need with this amp you're trying too hard.
      Downside is loading drivers. I plugged it into computer before downloading software then I saw the warning. ...too late.

      Easily Transportable Practice Amp

      By 

      from Arizona

      Comments about Yamaha THR10 Modeling Combo Amp:

      I purchased this thing on a July 4th Sale. Local out the door price was better than anything found on line. The THR10 is light weight and moves easily from home to remote practice sessions. The sound output quality for electric and acoustic/electric guitar is quite good. Can easily enjoy this amp at distances of 50 feet. The Yamaha THR10 is a nice piece of equipment. Get one.

      Wow!

      By 

      from Salt Lake City, Utah

      Comments about Yamaha THR10 Modeling Combo Amp:

      I never give 5 star ratings for anything, until now that is. Yamaha accomplished what I was beginning to think would never happen in my lifetime. They made a solid state practice amplifier with the warmth and subtleties of a large tube amp. It used to be that if you wanted a tone that sounded distorted when you played hard but sounded clean when you played soft (and do it instantly without changing the amp channel or settings), it had to be a tube amp. Solid state amps just couldn't do it, until now! This amp sounds so amazing. All the amp setting and all the effects sound great. The range of different styles you can mimic is astounding. I can get AC/DC style crunch, heavy metal distortion, country twang, mellow jazz, folksy acoustic, rockabilly, modern clean and crunch sounds like The Police, U2, R.E.M etc. and on and on. I believe the THR10 is the most versatile of the 3 available Yamaha practice amps and is the one to get if you like lots of different music styles. However, if you only play classic rock and blues you would likely find the THR10C better. If you only play hard rock and heavy metal get the THR10X. As other reviewers have said, this is a practice amp. It won't compete with a drummer without other equipment attached (though that can be done as the headphone jack can be used as a line out). But finally, finally, finally you can have a practice amp that sounds good. You no longer have to sacrifice tone to play at lower volume.

      Amazing bang for the buck!

      By 

      from San Francisco, California

      Comments about Yamaha THR10 Modeling Combo Amp:

      I can't say enough good things about this amp. Let's start with the size. It's about the size of a Marshall 5 watt head, which if you're not familiar with that little guy, think of a small amp head. Yes, this amp is solid state, and no, it doesn't suck. All 5 models on the amp are able to be changed to your liking thanks to the THR editor (which opens up so many possibilities for the amp). I've been blows away by the tone I'm able to dial in from this guy, and I couldn't be happier with it. I love the classic look to it, and the orange glow adds to it-I actually forgot it was just for effect and tried to turn it to standby once. It surprisingly works very well with pedals, too, which makes me really happy. I use this with the bundled Cubase software to record for 3 projects (groove metal, post-hardcore, cinematic instrumental), and have been VERY happy with how it sounds. If you want a lot of high-gain, go ahead and order the X, because while this is alright for heavy metal, the X was made for all things metal and heavy rock. This version of the THR gives you a lot of options, and the THR editor really helps fine-tuning a tone (you can choose a few cab models like 4x12 or 2x12). So if you play more than, say heavy metal, I'd go with this version. It suits many needs, it sounds good, you can use it for bass and acoustic guitar, and it has Cubase bundled in with it.

      Phenomenal Amp/MIDI Hub

      By 

      from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

      Comments about Yamaha THR10 Modeling Combo Amp:

      While I'm not seasoned enough to compose my own pieces, yet, I have had the ability to experience a wide variety of amps. From modeling, to tube, to simulator's, the THR10 has blown me away. As of now, I play covers, and the amp allows me to recreate ANY sound. From dark and distorted, to mid-crunch, to sharp clean, sounds. I have had NO trouble with it. I rate it 5 stars, as the amp is, far more than, good enough. I have experienced troubles with the driver, and Cubase, but those aren't the amp's fault. Just my lack of knowledge, and probable user mistake. I've posted several covers on YouTube, using this amp, which all came out great. While I haven't yet sat and worked out how to run the recording software, any other recording programs work, fine. I currently use 'MixCraft 6', and have, absolutely, no problem with compatibility. For anyone, either well seasoned, or beginner, or even those who have a few years under their belt. It's a great amp, that is sure to provide, anything you need. The effects are flawless, and the peripherals are outstanding, I would encourage the use of pedals, and out-board effects. I run it with a Boss DS-1, and couldn't be happier. If you need a practice amp, or even one for small gigs, I would highly recommend this one. The price is remarkably low, and the tuner/effects provided, are professional grade and if the amp has it built in, I don't usually have to worry about finding a pedal for it. I hope this helped. Cheer's and happy shredding!

      Amazing combo amp

      By 

      from San Francisco, CA

      Comments about Yamaha THR10 Modeling Combo Amp:

      I've had my THR for just 24 hours and I am massively impressed. My main reason for buying the amp was to have something that would work out fairly well for recording, but since I was moving and my half stack and tubed combo would be too loud for my studio apartment, I was even more intrigued by the THR. This thing is small, but it packs a mighty punch at 10 watts. I've installed the THR editor software to my computer and have been messing with that for the past few hours, and I'm even more impressed at the functionality it has and offers. The only thing I would think that it could be cool to have are some sort of stompbox simulations, like a fuzz or overdrive unit, but even then I'll just go to the editor and tell the amp I want it to be a heavily distorted sound with a 1x10 speaker, and it gives me a fuzzy tone. Having the ability to plug a bass and/or an acoustic into the amp is another great thing, and you do have presets specifically for those in the editor as well. If I was to ever take this thing anywhere, I wouldn't have any issues with weight, as it weighs virtually nothing, and has amazing battery life to it. All in all, a very solid practice amp and (in my case) an ideal home recording amp.

      Desktop amp with the swagger and attitude of all the top dollar tube amps...

      By 

      from Utah

      Comments about Yamaha THR10 Modeling Combo Amp:

      This amp is a diamond in the rough. In a market full of modeling amps that just don't sound musical, this amp is the beacon of light in the darkness of solid state technology. My hat is off to Yamaha, for they have truly created a musician's tool, a portal that will allow the things you play on your guitar to take life and form in sound waves, and exist outside of your mind. This amp is amazing. I really love this amp for what it is. A home practice amp that will do just about everything you throw at it, and then some. The speakers don't have the biggest bottom end, but you would be surprised at how full sounding they really are. Definitely go and check one out!

      Very Good Practice Amp

      By 

      from Kalamazoo, MI

      Comments about Yamaha THR10 Modeling Combo Amp:

      "Third Amp" is the perfect name for this amp. It isn't a a replacement for your gig or studio amp. But it's great for practice with headphones at night. Unlike other amp modelers, since this is an actual amp, it feels like your playing a amp. The speakers are amazingly good for the size, but seem a bit harsh to my ears. The variety of tones is useful, although slightly limited, but the editing software that comes with the amp actually gives more tone shaping options which greatly expand the capabilities of the amp. There are controls for a compressor, more reverb options and more controls over effects and cabinet selection. While the unit is somewhat costly, it is well built, sounds good, looks cool and interfaces with the computer, so it is good value for money.
