Overview

The Yamaha THR10C classic combo modeling amp takes the personal amp concept to a new level of audio fidelity. This amp will respond to a player's every touch. Using Yamaha's exclusive VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modelling) technology, the THR10C perfectly recreates the unmistakable response and dynamics that only a boutique tube combo can provide.

THR 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. Thanks to THR's unique design, stadium-filling volume isn't a prerequisite, everything about this amp is designed to fit the way you play.

The THR10C offers five amp types, Deluxe, Class A, US Blues, Brit Blues, Mini, plus Bass, Acoustic and Flat. You'll also get VCM effects processors that are based on the technology used in Yamaha's professional audio mixers.

This combo offers amazing tone for both your guitar and your track. The Extended Stereo Technology gives a wide, spacious sound unimaginable from such a small enclosure. The THR10C features Cubase AI, THR Editor and USB Connection so it's great for recording and editing. The User Memory function lets you switch between five settings quickly. The Tap tempo function and built-in chromatic tuner are super useful. Finished off with great style and Virtual Tube Illumination's simulated orange glow from the metal speaker grill, it looks as good as it sounds.

This amp is amazing. Great sound, and SUPER lightweight/portable. The only downsides are the toggle switch, it seems easy to snag on something while packing, and the battery compartment is located on the bottom of the amp... It's just kind of annoying to have to turn the amp over to change batteries. But the most important things are there. Amazing sound, easy to use, very lightweight.

Amp Meets the Need

By Mark Lewellen

from Dallas, Texas

Comments about Yamaha THR10C Classic Combo Modeling Combo Amp:

I recently had to move out of my humble abode. With divorce at hand, me and my gear had to salvage and flee. I had to move in with my Father so needless to say my living and practice quarters had to make some accomodations. I quickly found that my 100 watt Fuchs head and cabinet combo was not going to suffice in my new environment. So with that said, I found myself in dire need of a practice amp. I needed something that sounded like a real tube amp and could be quiet and managable at low volumes. Being spoiled to the greatness of my Fuchs TDS, I was prepared to settle for the dull and lifeless world of solid state. After reading all of the reviews of the offerings from Fender, Marshall, Vox, Roland, etc. I was going to find something that would sound better than the unplugged acoustic tone of my Strats and Gibson 359. I stumbled on the Yamaha THR series of amps and although they were pricey and atop the food chain of practice amps, I found myself intrigued by the reviews. Being a jazz, blues and fusion player I decided to give the THR10C a chance. I contaced my local GC and by luck they had a floor model. I was happy to get the amp at a discount without software and a box. I took it home and tooke it for a spin. I was very skeptical but was blown away at how good this thing sounded. Not only did it sound clean but it was very warm with the response of a real tube amp. Just plugging in could render enough tones to practice for hours without waking my Dad and shaking the foundation. Being able to use headphones was a nice touch. I tried a couple of pedals and this thing even got better. This is just what I needed. I can run my backtracks through the auxillery input and have everything I need. I have not used the editing software as of yet but I am looking forward to playing with it. This little amp is a keeper and was a perfect fit for my needs. It is not intended to be a performance amp but I can see myself recording with it. It is very quiet in all settings and the digital signal processing is outstanding. The reverbs and effects are a really versatile and sound great. If you are in my situation, I highly recomend this great little amp. Yamaha engineers have hit a major home run with this.

Quality Product and sound!

By ROBERT SALVATORE

from Visalia, CA

Comments about Yamaha THR10C Classic Combo Modeling Combo Amp:

Have had the THR10C for about 2 weeks and have plugged several instruments into it. I am amazed at the quality and big sound from such a small unit. On the settings for bass and acoustic; my Taylor 6 string steel and nylon guitars and even my Fender bass sound excellent. The effects, chorus,reverb,tremelo,etc are great also. For convenience and quality, this is a keeper.

Compact QUALITY sound!

By Jim

from Grand Junction, CO

Comments about Yamaha THR10C Classic Combo Modeling Combo Amp:

I rely on reviews for many purchases, and reviewing this Yamaha THR10C is a pleasure. Initially I cringed a bit at the price, as it's awfully small, but in this case a good thing comes in a small package. I went with the THR10c because I tend to play with mostly clean sounds. This amp is fantastic for this purpose. You can get some dirt using the gain on the Brit Blues & mini channels, but the clean sounds just keep amazing me! As for effects, the reverb on the "hall" setting will just have you wondering how you were suddenly transported to a concert hall! It absolutely blows me away how great the quality of sound is out of this little amp. Usually I don't muck around much with the effects like phaser or flanger, but on this amp they both sound great! One thing I was hoping for and couldn't find much in the way of reviews was at least a decent sound on the ACO setting for an acoustic electric guitar. Again, 5 out of 5 stars...it's the best amp I have now for acoustic sounds. As long as you keep the guitar 2-3' from the amp, feedback is not an issue. I have not gone on Yamaha's website yet to get the extra features, but even if I never did I'd still be extremely pleased with this amp. Any improvements will just be a bonus. As far as portability, they just don't get much more portable and the option to use it with batteries makes it a great choice for the camping trip, jamming in the park or at outside BBQ's. The fake "tube glow" lights when the amp is on are a cool, well thought out feature especially playing some slow blues in the dark. This amp is not a replacement for a larger amp capable of live performance as it just doesn't get that loud, but for a practice amp that you can play without annoying your family or neighbors the sound quality cannot be beat! As soon as I can save up some extra dinero, I intend on buying the THR10 for those times when I feel like getting dirty. This amp proves the point to me that a cheap guitar can sound great from a good amp, whereas a great guitar through a cheap amp? Well just don't go there. Get a good amp!

      Comments about Yamaha THR10C Classic Combo Modeling Combo Amp:

      This amp is billed as "your third amp", but I'm using it as my only amp now. I traded in a much larger + louder Yamaha DG-100, which is an earlier generation of Yamaha's digital guitar technology (and also sounds great). I'm very happy with it thus far!

      The THR-10C gives a beautiful range of guitar tones from "crystal clean" to "pretty dirty", but if you want high gain, you might want to look at the other THR models, or just, you know, put a pedal in front of it. I'm playing mine with a TS-808 Tube Screamer, and that combined with this amp is pretty much all the gain I'll ever need. The nice thing about it is that all of the tones sound wonderful! I've found that with modeling amps like this, I usually only like 2 out of 5 settings, but I like them all on this one. The built-in effects sound very good too.

      Two things make this amp stand out for my studio/home practice use: You can plug it into your computer and it acts as an audio interface, and it comes with software that lets you tweak patches. The computer interface actually gives you access to more settings than you get with the hardware knobs + buttons. It really can't be overstated how nice it is to be able to fine-tune the sound from a computer interface, and also how nice it is to be able to record the sound you're hearing, directly, without worrying about mic placement, etc.

      Comments about Yamaha THR10C Classic Combo Modeling Combo Amp:

      This is exactly what I needed. It's small, it can get pretty loud, and it has a ton of options. I went with the THR10C because I really didn't need the high gain amps the regular TRH10 has. I want a clean tone that I can get some gain out of and really boost it with a couple pedals. This does exactly that.

      It's well worth the money and the computer application you download from Yamaha gives you a lot of useful features. You can fine tune the level of delay, reverb, chorus, and all the rest. You can also add a compressor which will add a lot of extra gain if you need it.

      If you are looking for heavy distortion this isn't the amp. You're better off with the regular or X model. If you want a classic rock tone, this is the one.

      It takes pedals very well. The tuner is an awesome thing to have as well and it's really helpful. Having 5 storage presets is also a huge bonus for this.

      It's also worth noting it does very well as a bass amp too. This gets overlooked a lot, but it has a great tone and sounds just like any other bass amp I've used.

      Comments about Yamaha THR10C Classic Combo Modeling Combo Amp:

      The THR10C is like a Bose Wave Radio for guitarists. Audio from aux or USB sounds excellent, and the amp models are very good. I would give it 5 stars except: * The USB port isn't iPad compatible * It doesn't charge its own batteries.

      Yamaha Software works as expected, with MacBook Air with standard USB ports . Will test with windows next.
      Guitar models sound as expected. Great practice amp small light. Stereo separation is great like a wave radio when using as a computer monitor, with pre recorded music. Asio driver seems to work with all my DAW's. Free software download process is a little confusing but did install correctly.

          This little amp is awesome. I mainly play acoustic guitar now but I bought this amp to record some licks and solos on my Strat. I've had a Fender Deluxe Reverb RI & Fender Blues Jr. in past but sold them as I only play at home now and I can tell you that when I play my Strat though this little gem, the sound is pure tube heaven. It's mind blowing. I think Yamaha doesn't get enough credit for this little amp. When other musicians hear my recordings they are also amazed how this little guy sounds 95% like the real thing at low volume for bluesy and jazzy sounds. I haven't utilize the software yet as the live sound is good enough for me, so I'm recording it with an SM57 or condenser microphone in front of it. For home practice it's inspirational and for the price, you can't beat it. My advice, if you can't afford the real thing or you're looking for a low volume practice amp buy this amp, you won't regret it. Cheers:)

          Comments about Yamaha THR10C Classic Combo Modeling Combo Amp:

          Don't even know where to begin. I spent the last several months researching the perfect little practice amp I could play at home that wasn't too loud, had great tone, and was easy to record with. I tried out tons of options and was close to honing in on a Blackstar amp but this one just kept coming up in forums as "the perfect practice amp". I had a hard time buying into the hype for this little tin box, and was only able to try out the THR10X in a loud Guitar Center so I couldn't quite be captured by the tone. Eventually, after buying a Blackstar BEAM (and quickly returning it for being too weak and glitchy) I finally gave in and ordered the THR10c online to test out at home.

          And wow.

          Sure, (to get out the bad) it's not the biggest loudest kid on the block compared to other $300 amps, and it can get a little fizzy when fully cranked, but that's not the point of it. It's not a gigging amp, and when cranked even halfway, it's got tons of volume and sounds GREAT.

          As for the good. It's hard not to love this thing:
          -It looks awesome, the wifey instantly approved when she saw me open it. The black looks great in my studio.
          -Sounds fantastic. It really sounds natural and lush, and the 5 amp settings really sound like 5 different amps. You get tons of versatility within those. Great range from glassy clean to dirty bluesy crunch. Love that you can save the settings.
          -Features! Love the battery power, I can use it anywhere in the house. The tuner is great, aux in is useful, and other amp settings (bass, acoustic, flat) are great perks to have.
          -USB recording! Only tried once, but it is super easy to use and gives a pretty nice useable sound.
          -Volume. You get plenty. Have to keep it below 50% most of the time. Pretty nice sounding bass too, even out of this little box.
          -Easy. It's just simple to use! All the knobs make sense and no iPhone app required.

          Finally, it's just inspiring. I play it everyday and I'm every time I'm excited to see what tones I can get out of it

              I use it around the house as a portable practice amp. I also use it to play outside or in the park etc.

              Service and delivery comments:

              I ordered the amp in store to be shipped to my house because the store didn't have the version I wanted in stock currently, except for the floor model that I tried out to decide to buy it. I asked if I could buy the floor model and he explained to me that he couldn't because it was the only demo they had. I was fine with that and then asked if there were any used ones on guitar center's website because I had seen some when I was looking into buying the amp, but he told me no so I jut told him to order a new one. When I got home I looked online and on the Guitar Center website there were two used ones available. I had already gotten the email that the order had been processed and it was scheduled to ship so I didn't think there was anything I could do. I wish the person who helped me would have let me order the used one.

                  Comments about Yamaha THR10C Classic Combo Modeling Combo Amp:

                  Quick introduction: I gig in a blues band roughly once or twice a month. This is the perfect practice amp for my small, Japanese apartment. I can get some very good tones at a reasonable volume. Most of all, it inspires me to keep on playing and practicing. I haven't plugged it into my computer yet because I haven't found a need to. I can get all the tones I want by just playing with the controls on the amp. If you need a desktop practice amp, this is the one to get. You will not be disappointed.

                    Really happy with this as a tool to develop sounds and play riffs with backing tracks. Really surprised at the acoustic amp sound. Its a Yamaha product so there was no doubt it would be solid
