The Yamaha THR10 amp is the result of Yamaha's accumulated research into what the guitarist of today needs from a practice amp. Great functions, beautiful tone and hi-fi stereo sound are all housed in a head turning, vintage styled exterior. You get all of this in a head amp-shaped cabinet that gives you the option of being battery or mains powered and its small enough to be truly portable.
It may sound like an obvious statement but the Yamaha THR10 amp has been purpose built for practice. This is to say that Yamaha's idea with this amp was to create something unique for the practicing guitarist, rather than create a cut down version of a larger amp. With this in mind Yamaha researched the environments that guitarists like to practice in and how they like to practice to create an amp that would sound amazing for the purpose it was created for. This has been paired with a range of functions that you'll actually want to use in practice, that have again been fine-tuned to give you the best sound possible.
Saying the Yamaha THR10 amp is portable is an understatement. With a battery-operation function, built-in tuner, top-quality stereo speakers, tube amp sound and 8 onboard effects all housed in a small beautifully form retro box you'll want to carry it everywhere with you, and weighting just 2kg you can! The simplicity of this practice amp is what guitarists have been crying out for. It’s about as 'plug and play' as you can get without cutting down the quality, just add batteries! Also for the home recording beginner the amp can be used as an audio interface, coming supplied with Cubase AI.
When it comes to guitar sound quality, reproduction is key. You want the best from your guitar; an amp that isn't speaking the same language won't impress anyone. Knowing the importance of this Yamaha have used their Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology in the Yamaha THR10. Based around the circuitry of legendary amps this technology will give you the tonal breadth and sound shaping of the original tube amps. It also never loses sound quality when the volume is reduced, an essential feature of a practice amp.
Based around Yamaha's extended stereo technology the speakers give great breadth to your sound, as if they are separate from the main unit. This alongside the Yamaha THR10 amp's wide frequency range and ability to meld sounds naturally with your guitar give a high quality of sound that belies its small dimensions.
Having a larger enclosure than the THR5, the Yamaha THR10 adds more mid and low range its sound. On top of the five amp type modes available on the smaller model you also get bass amp modeling, electro-acoustic mic simulation and a flat channel (for keyboards and vocals). With a 3-Band EQ and memory function (located on the top of the control panel), you can save up to five amp sounds with the amp set up for various effects.
