Works beautifully and powerfully, with various classic modelling and effects for electric guitar, as well as a bass guitar setting, acoustic guitar settings and a flat setting for everything else!
Guitarists are familiar with the tube amp stacks that sound amazing when turned up loud on a big stage, and with combo amps that are a perfect fit for smaller venues and rehearsal. THR ignored the convention that a practice amp should simply be a smaller version of a larger amplifier, creating a new “third amp” category designed around what players need when they’re playing at home.
All THR-II models feature Bluetooth connectivity for audio playback, the “THR Remote” mobile editor app, and third-party footswitch support.
THR10II Wireless and THR30II Wireless also feature a built-in rechargeable battery and Line 6 wireless receiver. Just grab your THR, your guitar, and a Line 6 Relay G10T transmitter (sold separately), and play anywhere your music takes you.
Mobile Editor for iOS®/Android™
The “THR Remote” mobile editor provides users with convenient remote amplifier operation from your smartphone. There’s no need to be directly in front of your amplifier to dial in your guitar tone. Just open the app and tap to shape your own unique sound while sitting on your sofa. PC and Mac versions of the editor are also available.
THE SOUND SAYS IT ALL
Virtual Circuitry Modeling
Yamaha’s patented Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology simulates each circuit down to the component level. By modeling these components and the interactions between them, VCM realistically recreates the nuances that give boutique tube amplifiers their unique sound and feel.
15 Guitar Amp Models + 8 Effects
Three banks of five guitar amp models offer everything from shimmering cleans through bluesy overdrive and crushing high gain. Each bank also features a unique bass amp model, mic model for electric-acoustics, and a flat voicing without any modeling, for anything else you might want to connect.
In addition, THR features dual circuits providing 8 natural, ultra-musical effects. One circuit handles stompbox-style modulation effects while the other provides delays and reverbs.
A compressor and noise gate are also available via the THR Remote editor software.
Hi-Fi Audio Technology
The THR guitar amps were developed with Yamaha’s award-winning AV division to offer true hi-fi stereo sound. The exclusive, specially-designed speaker enclosure is optimized to handle both guitar and audio playback sound, making the THR uniquely capable of giving you amazing tone for both your guitar and your favorite music from a compact, portable amp.
Cubase® AI / Cubasis® LE
All THR-II models are bundled with Cubase® AI and Cubasis LE. Cubase AI is Steinberg’s professional music production application that offers full-fledged recording and editing. Cubasis LE is a multi-touch compatible DAW application that allows for music production on the iPad®.
Integrated Audio Interface
The new THR-II series amps are USB Class Compliant, allowing easy connection with PC/Mac and mobile devices without the need to install drivers, so that you can easily use your THR-II as an audio interface for recording.
