Your Third AMP
Playing shouldn't be a compromise. You need tone, dynamics and response everywhere you play – not just when your amp's cranked and at the back of the stage. By ignoring the convention that an off-stage guitar amp is simply a small version of your stage amp, THR gives guitarists what they really need to play anytime and anywhere. If you care about tone and sometimes when you play it's not on a stage, there's a place in your setup for THR.
Just don't forget that you probably have other things to do aside from playing guitar…
Think of how much time you've spent agonizing over your guitar sound; the countless hours spent tweaking and testing until finally you get the perfect expressive platform for your live performances. Why settle for less when the gig is over? Designed from the ground up to be the perfect amp for when you're not playing live, the THR is at the forefront of the “Third Amp” revolution—a new concept from Yamaha aimed specifically at guitarists who are serious about their off-stage sound, and don't always have access to an elaborate studio or stage setup. Whether you're warming up backstage for the next big gig, brainstorming with the band at the hotel, or just jamming around a campfire, the THR is the perfect amp for everywhere you play that isn't on-stage. This five-model series of portable guitar amplifiers utilizes Yamaha's acclaimed Virtual Circuitry Technology to deliver authentic tube amp sound, incredibly realistic effects, and hi-fi quality stereo playback, so that no location is too remote, no tone too elusive, for those moments when you just want to play.
The third amp revolution is sweeping the nation… don't get left behind.
A new take on classic tone
The little brother of the THR10, the THR5 offers the sound quality of the THR10 in a more portable form, making it perfect for use at home or when traveling.
Now the THR5 has been upgraded version 2, with an even better sound that defies the convention that sound quality has to be sacrificed in a small amp with a small sound.
V.2 Modefied Edition
The THR5 and 10 have been updated V.2 with new speaker simulations that deliver more depth and character than ever before. V.2 delivers you more cleaner cleans and dirtier distortions.
[ For current THR5 and THR10 user ]

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…
THR5 offers five amp types
Rich clean tones from a 6L6 power section with early breakup for incredible jazz, blues and country sounds.
Low-powered EL84 class-A tube output with bright, clear, dynamic power amp distortion characteristics.
Low-gain preamp section and EL34 power section for rich, controllable distortion with great midrange definition.
EL34s keep the classic British clarity while a higher gain preamp allows you to push the amp into serious distortion.
Ultra high-gain input section combined with 6L6 output section delivers smooth, powerful distortion
High-power all-tube design for dynamic, driving bass tone.
Electric-acoustic optimized input with mic simulations for natural, clear tone.
Flat response clean input for line sources, tone and effect controls allow shaping of non-guitar sources.
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 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.
