The new Yamaha THR5A was designed with electro-acoustic and silent guitars in mind. Making use of Yamaha's advanced modelling technologies , you have studio-grade effects, simulations of classic tube condenser and dynamic mics and USB connectivity all in one lightweight, beautiful looking unit.

Built in powerful effects

With 8 stunning effects, including chorus, phaser, flanger, delay and reverbs and with 10-watt Hi-Fi stereo sound, you get incredible tone from a unit a fraction of the size of what you would expect to achieve this kind of result. This is on top of the 3 mic type models – condenser, dynamic and tube, and a nylon and clean electric setting that give you an unbelievable range of sound and all levels are adjustable to suit your ideal mix.

In the studio, the Yamaha THR5A really shines, with USB or line out connectivity you'll get the tone and response of an amp that's cranked and mic'd straight into a mixing desk or computer. The THR5A also comes bundled with Steinberg's Cubase AI music production software to make professional studio grade recordings. For added production, you can use the included THR editor software to modify the amp sounds with incredible depth.

Compact and clear amplification

The THR5A is designed to be played when and how you play, when you're not on stage, it makes the ideal backstage warm-up partner or if inspiration hits it can be plugged in or run from batteries and ready to play instantly. Want to jam along to a track? Then connect any external audio source via the ¼ inch stereo jack input.

The Yamaha THR5A delivers the sound that you want and the feeling you need in an all in on powerful and portable package that is the ideal companion on the road, at home or in the studio.

Posted on 22/03/2016 by BobC I've owned one of these for about two years now and it's honestly one of the best bits of gear I've ever bought. I'm quite different from the "intended" market for this product in that I'm not so interested in using it with the software provided, but rather for live use. I play solo instrumental fingerstyle and have found this perfect for lifting the volume slightly at folk clubs, etc, where playing unamplified is just a bit too quiet. More than that, I've used it on larger stages too, mic-ed up through the PA and the sound guys invariably love it. The mic modelling is very good and adds a real warmth to the standard pick-up sound. Invest in some rechargeable batteries and the ability to run on battery power is a real plus (a set will last about 3 hours or so). If I have a criticism, it's that it would be great to have a proper line-out rather than just a headphone jack, and the on-board reverb is a bit enthusiastic (I tend to use it just at the very lower part of the dial) and it would be nice if patches could be saved to the amp as they can be on some of the other THR models. But generally, this is a superb little amp and I'm surprised that more isn't made of its live potential for very small venues or for mic-ing up.
