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.
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 cleaner cleans and dirtier distortions.
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 (Virtual Circuitry Modeling)
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 analogue gear invaluable even in today's digital production environment.
