OVERVIEW

A personal amp with enough flexibility to keep up with any player.

The Yamaha THR10C classic combo modeling amp takes the personal amp concept to a new level of audio fidelity. This amp will respond to a player's every touch. Using Yamaha's exclusive VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modelling) technology, the THR10C perfectly recreates the unmistakable response and dynamics that only a boutique tube combo can provide.

THR delivers the sound you want and the feeling you need. Effects that enhance and complement your playing combine with room-filling reverbs and delays to push your playing to new levels. Thanks to THR's unique design, stadium-filling volume isn't a prerequisite, everything about this amp is designed to fit the way you play.

The THR10C offers five amp types, Deluxe, Class A, US Blues, Brit Blues, Mini, plus Bass, Acoustic and Flat. You'll also get VCM effects processors that are based on the technology used in Yamaha's professional audio mixers.

This combo offers amazing tone for both your guitar and your track. The Extended Stereo Technology gives a wide, spacious sound unimaginable from such a small enclosure. The THR10C features Cubase AI, THR Editor and USB Connection so it's great for recording and editing. The User Memory function lets you switch between five settings quickly. The Tap tempo function and built-in chromatic tuner are super useful. Finished off with great style and Virtual Tube Illumination's simulated orange glow from the metal speaker grill, it looks as good as it sounds.

FEATURES
  • Amp types: Deluxe, Class A, US Blues, Brit Blues, Mini, Bass, Acoustic* and Flat (*Mic simulation)
  • Effects: Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Tremolo, Tape Echo, Echo/Reverb, Spring Reverb and Hall Reverb
  • Chromatic tuner
  • Controller/switch: Amp, Gain, Master, Bass, Middle, Treble, Effect, Dly/Rev, Guitar Output, USB/AUX Output, User Memory
  • Two 8cm speakers
  • 10W

Had this for almost a year so thought I'd write a review for once. Won't go over the numerous features as its already been covered on the interwebs. Great amp for what it is, and it's exactly what Yamaha promises it to be. The tones are about as authentic as you can expect them to be for a modeler. The whole speaker system is executed to perfection. At super low volumes you still get the tone and FEEL of the modeled amps. I find that with digital modeling it always helps to be familiar with the amp being modeled to get the best results, as in owning or having owned one. The only amp of the ones represented by the THR10C that I have is the Deluxe Reverb, and let me tell you, it's almost spot on. Well, the real thing sounds better, of course but subjectively speaking I'd say you get 75% of the tone (and that's me being super critical) and it feels like you're playing a "big" amp with great nuances and touch sensitivity. The effects are pretty good, they are in your face and if you want them to be more subtle you have to hook up to a computer to do some deep editing. Yamaha also has some presets on the computer software that were better than anything I dialed in in the first few months (I was sorta humbled by that). Reverbs are amazing, especially the extended stereo "hall" setting. Make sure you study the manual to see how extended stereo is applied to effects and auxiliary input, it really is something to hear. My favorite thing about the THR10C is how the auxiliary input sounds when mixed with guitar when you're playing to a backing track. I haven't heard anything like this in any other modeling amp I've come across. It actually sounds like you're there with the band playing a real amp instead of just playing over a track. And this is all at a volume that won't wake a sleeping baby. Speaking of volume, this thing is pretty loud for a living room when cranked, but looses some definition at higher settings. It's about as loud as a good flat screen TV. I haven't used it for recording yet so can't comment on that. Overall, I feel that it's one of the best purchases I've made in a long while. Thank you Yamaha for thinking outside of the dreaded box.

Clean has no volume. Work-around is use "studio" compressor and boost output from there. That works for a decent Jazz sound. Used for giving lessons 15V power jack broke in less than a year. Money totally wasted on NON-PROFESSIONAL toy. Basically a cheap overseas made boom-box with nice features. Save your money for something built stronger.

    Comments about Yamaha THR10C Classic Combo Modeling Combo Amp:

    A friend recommended this amp to me and I've been playing it since it's arrived. I think the longer I play through it, the more I love the simplicity and clean sound. This is an excellent travel practice amp, so much so that I'm tempted to get a cigarette lighter adapter and play it in the car during lunch hour.

        Comments about Yamaha THR10C Classic Combo Modeling Combo Amp:

        These things should come with guitars. Even the acoustic patch sounds decent enough. It is inconspicuous, has a headphone outlet and is simple to use. The aux input sounds great and I will probably use it on occasion just for listening to MP3s, especially with the batteries somewhere I don't have power. The tone can be a little edgy but can be tamed with amp and guitar tone controls. Effects controls are limited but usable and sound good enough. I would certainly recommend this for any guitarist that can justify an extra little practice amp. You will probably find a place for it on your recordings but for most guitarists, it is not versatile enough for serious rehearsals or full time use. It is certainly several notches over a Pignose if that helps.

          Comments about Yamaha THR10C Classic Combo Modeling Combo Amp:

          This is hands down one of the best, most inspiring pieces of guitar gear that I have ever purchased. Tired of spending 10 minutes of valuable practice time setting up your amp, plugging in pedals, waiting for tubes to warm up etc.? And then once you've got it all ready the thing is just too loud for you to enjoy? If so, this little guy has you covered. Leave out a guitar on a stand near this amp and a cable nearby and you can't avoid practicing. Setup is instantaneous. This product negates all the excuses you are making for yourself. Sounds great with all my guitars even at the very quietest levels. The line in is great for practicing along with a backing track, it runs for 9 hours on AA batteries! I never plug it in -- when my rechargeable batteries run out I give a little shout of celebration because I know I just played 9 hours of guitar! The software for deeper tweaking is great, and knob twiddling can be very rewarding. Don't be afraid to go crazy...there are no tubes to burn out or speakers to blow! All the amp models sound very good and realistic...I've actually never had so much fun playing a modeler before. The speaker cabinet simulation is very good and must be designed to pair perfectly with the speakers in this thing. Can even handle your overdrive, fuzz, and treble boosters! I can't say enough good things about this product. THANK YOU YAMAHA. AND THANK YOU MUSICIANS FRIEND!

            I bought this after the 10, in that the low-gain modeling on the 10 just loved my custom tele. Yami nailed the gain stage, that you can literally tune in the sweet-spot where a very natural sounding break-up, and overdrive begin. If you have nice guitars, you'll fall in love with these puppies. As close to analog as I've ever heard in my 40 years. Bravo Yami. Ditto Musicians Friend.

                The Youtube reviews and Yamaha's hype are, amazingly, all true. This is an incredible amp for the money. You can almost believe you are playing the boutique valve amps it models. The only thing missing is a proper line level output. Don't get this is if you like to shred; get the 10X or the original THR10 instead. This is the one to get if you love small valve combos. I purchased a restock item and it arrived fully operational and without a scratch or dent on it.

                Comments about Yamaha THR10C Classic Combo Modeling Combo Amp:

                My son just gave me a review of this, his latest birthday present: "It's fantastic!" I'd doodled around w/ it when it arrived, and it took a little tweaking for me to get sounds I like, (love the 5 user presets)but the most impressive feature was the huge, all-encompassing delay functions. Reverbs, slapback - whatever - it's there, and unGodly spacious sounding too. My son immediately hooked up his I-pod, found a good mix w/ the Aux - In Vol. pot, and jammed away. Sounds like this could be a busker's tool, w/ prerecorded backing tracks from an Ipod. I'm glad he loves it, and am that much closer to getting my own. For me, the one thing I'd want added would be a stereo line out to a power amp. Maybe the headphone outs would
                work - I don't know.
