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.

This little amp has a lot of functions, but very 'user friendly' and easy to use. I like the portability of it, and the batteries are lasting a good time as well (at least 2 to 3 hrs) This amp has a very warm sound. Most folks won't believe me, but it does sound a lot like a 70's Fender tube amp.. just quieter. I would recommend playing thru one to become a believer... when you buy one (and you will) make sure that you are buying the full function/effects model. Mine is the THRc (classic) and you won't be disappointed. I play a Rover travel guitar that has a Martin Thin-Line bridge pick-up and Martin Silk strings.. the sound I get at outside Drop-in Gigs is phenomenal! no electricity and totally portable! awesome set-up! Buy one!

I wanted to like it and tried to like it, but at the end it is a small metal box with little speakers and sounds like it. I was able to get some nice sounds to be fair but they still sounded weak. For its purpose in an apt. or low volume it's fine, but for me still sounded small. To get any crunch I had to turn the gain and master on full. I played it with a friend who owns a guitar shop, has been in music retail for over 40 years and played longer and it just did not impress either of us. It gets great reviews so try it, but for me I returned it after two weeks.

    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!

      Comments about Yamaha THR10C Classic Combo Modeling Combo Amp:

      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.

          Comments about Yamaha THR10C Classic Combo Modeling Combo Amp:

          I'v we owned this amp for a couple of weeks...its replacing a vypyr 30 amp for bedroom late night noodling. where as the digital was working against the transtube vypyr with an annoying noise gate and artifacts...yamaha has done a great job making this amp react like a tube amp with all the richness and dynamics at low volumes.

          when I first picked up a guitar 20 yrs ago i never understood why an amp didn't respond like
          a stereo's volume...this amp does!!! no more massive jump in volume from 1 to 3.

          Im using this amp mainly for my tele but i also have a js1000. For single coils i recommend a tube screamer type pedal for smoother overdrive tones. With the stereo imaging and hi-fi components this tiny amp really sounds like a beast when you're in front of the amp. I've played through many tube amps from cheap all the way to boutique...technology really is blurring the lines between digital and analogue. This amp really feels like a living breathing entity!!! from holy grail blues tones to super organic country tones this amp is perfect for my room.

            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.

              I read all the reviews and check out all the videos.
              So I purchased the Yamaha THR10C (black one) and when it arrived
              I pulled it out of the box and plugged into it,I have one thing to say AMAZING!!!! This little amp not only looked good but sounded Amazing!
              The twin speakers are rich sounding and full you would not believe the sound of the reverb and other effect that come from this little tone machine..Also you will not believe how loud it can sound when its sitting in front of you...remember this amp will not replace the amps you come to know and love but it will be something you most likely will use every day...it truly makes you sound good and family and friends will come to love it too...plug you mp3 player in to it and it sounds great..Every time I plug in I can't put my guitar down its been addictive!!
              The overdrives and distortions are touch sensitive you can go from a little hair on the notes to full blown overdrives to distortions.
              It electric and can take batteries and it has a tuner on board ..plus all the other features that are listed on ads ...I owed many of the mini amps like Fender,Vox, and they sound great for their size...but I am Addictive to this amp...so much I will be ordering the THR10 (cream color one )and the gig bag...Any one wanting something portable and sounding great should buy this amp ..YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!

                Love this thing. It is now the center of my home practice space. The big things I think that Yamaha has missed is the software to do everything from an iPad and a line out to send the output to a mixer. Frankly I would buy another one for those 2 features... in a minute.

                I play jazz, almost every musician I know uses an iPad for charts and performance support. Sure laptops are fine but in a professional pickup environment what we have is music stands. iPads fit on music stands and are much less a worry if you break one. So it would be really good to transition all my things to just an iPad and this little amp is really the only software holdup I have. Please, please just make it so that all the functions can be connected via the camera connection kit so that we can all move to the next level together.

                Large iPads are coming. This amp is a real winner. Please yamaha make this happen.

                    This amp has traveled with me in my checked bag on probably 50 flights. I suggest the Yamaha bag for it inside the suitcase to give it some additional protection (airline baggage handlers take destroying your bag and it's contents as a personal challenge) and this amp has survived 3 suitcases damaged beyond repair. With my clothes I pack... this amp, a small pedal board with about 6 pedals, and all my clothes and personal effects for the week and it usually weighs well below the 50 lb limit. (about 41 lbs).

                    The amp models and effects are decent too. I can dial in a Vernon Reid - Living Color "Cult of Personality" sound, ZZ Top - LaGrange, SRV or Hendrix sound reliably and quickly... and on my strat. I don't really like it with my Les Paul with active pickups. ...but great with my Epiphone Les Paul, Strat, Tele and Kramer.

                    It's the perfect volume for a hotel and still delivers a pretty Hendrix-like sound from my Strat through an Fulltone OCD pedal. You can play your phone through it too with an aux cable and play along with the music on your phone or just use it to play back music from the phone.

                    I love this amp because it exceeds all the expectations I had for it when I bought it. I have used it almost every day for about a year and taken it with me all over the country coast to coast. ...but get the bag to put it in before you pack it into a suitcase!

                    This little amp is great in concept,poor in execution.Amp models are good,and it really does respond to right hand technique very well.Factory FX just so-so,and I couldn't get the Yamaha software to activate to change any FX parameters.Frustrating,that....Battery power is nice feature.Perfect size for nightstand/bathroom/van/cell etc. The thing is,it sounds really good,enough to make you want to use it live...I back up an acoustic singer/songwriter,small rooms,low volumes....I'd still have to close mic (2mics;it's stereo,right?)it.Not worth the hassle at a gig.Version 2.0 Mandatory Upgrades:Stereo Line Out A Must!!!! Just a little more power,please! Just a few more measly watts.More flexible FX control;Rate,Depth,Regen.Some way to attach to a mic stand.Better software/site access.Carrying case w/room for cables/pwr.supply,etc. So,if you really need to practice in a closet at 4am,and don't mind spending the price of a small combo amp to do it,By all means,pick one up.It really does sound very nice....

                      Comments about Yamaha THR10C Classic Combo Modeling Combo Amp:

                      Much like the other THR amps, this is an amazing little box for practicing and recording. The sounds are excellent. I was torn between this classic model and the normal THR because I love combos, but tend toward a fairly gainy blues/rock tone. Turns out these amp models do have enough gain to get where I want and still retain a great boutique feel and sound.

                      This amp has some of the best modeling out there and the use of a hi-fi speaker is brilliant. You get great frequency response from a small package. Also, this thing can get LOUD. It can't compete with my 50 Watt tube combo, but I have used it at church (we usually run between 100-110 db at mix) and it is powerful enough that I can use it as my stage monitor without worrying about blow it up. (it needs to be MICed/DIed for the main mix, of course)

                      It works great for recording as well, and the added editor features you get when you plug it in to the computer are just the icing on the cake. I loved the beautiful, pure gain on the Z model, but when I used the editor to put it through a 2x12 model I loved the sound even more. Effects, delay and reverb are also excellent and very usable.

                      I highly recommend this to anyone whether it be a second or third amp, starter amp, or even an only amp if you don't play out much. It's that good!

                        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.

                        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.

                        I had never heard of this amp until I saw it at a major music store and started reading reviews online. I was impressed with what I read and the employees highly recommended it. I bought it that same day and have not regretted my purchase. The THR10C is my favorite amp for practice. It can run off of batteries (which last a long time) and I now find myself going outside on the porch and playing for hours. I primarily play acoustic and I have to say that this amp has made it fun to play my electric again. It sounds amazing and it has even inspired me creatively. Looking at the amps small size you would not believe that it sounds as good or projects as loud as it does. You could play a small coffee shop with this amp, but I agree with one of the other reviewers that Yamaha should have included a line out. While it is a great practice amp, having the ability to route it into a mixing console would make it an amazing performance amp and/or recording amp. If Yamaha brings out this feature in a future version I will definately be buying one! I would buy a much larger amp as well if Yamaha put the THR10C technology into it. It is really that good! Don't hesitate; buy this amp!

                          This little amp has a lot of functions, but very 'user friendly' and easy to use. I like the portability of it, and the batteries are lasting a good time as well (at least 2 to 3 hrs) This amp has a very warm sound. Most folks won't believe me, but it does sound a lot like a 70's Fender tube amp.. just quieter. I would recommend playing thru one to become a believer... when you buy one (and you will) make sure that you are buying the full function/effects model. Mine is the THRc (classic) and you won't be disappointed. I play a Rover travel guitar that has a Martin Thin-Line bridge pick-up and Martin Silk strings.. the sound I get at outside Drop-in Gigs is phenomenal! no electricity and totally portable! awesome set-up! Buy one!

                            OK.. here's my funky rig.. Wasburn Rover Travel guitar with a Martin saddle pick-up installed.. the Yamaha THRc amp... totally portable with the guitar in it's travel case fitted with shoulder straps, and the THR amp fitted into a small travel case Velcro'ed on the back of that.. totally unbelievable sound I get with my 'drop and play insta-gigs..' I set up in less than 90 seconds .. hit the 'memory' button on the amp of a selected tune..play.. re-secure into the cases in another 90 seconds and I'm gone.. freik'in weasel's are on their way and I refuse to get a permit.. everyone standing around saying "who was that guy" totally blows people away !! the sound of this amp is unbelievable! looking for a portable loop to stretch the sound even more... keep on rockin in the 'free' world ! just one of the tunes I play...

                            I am still learning about all the capabilities for this amp, but what really stands out for me is how you get the outstanding tone, sustain and dynamics of a full size amp at conversation level volume. It's perfect for when you want to practice or play without blasting everyone else in the house (or neighborhood). I have had small amps in the past, but they still required some volume behind them to reveal any playing dynamics and tone. Not so with this amp.

                            I downloaded the THR editor which has a lot of slots for creating and saving settings. I believe you save can them to the presets on the amp. The editor has slots for 100 different user preferences, or models. I just need to figure out how to fully exploit it's capabilities.

                            There are 2 knobs for on-board effects which are limited to chorus/flanger/phaser/tremolo, the other is tape echo/echo-delay/spring/hall reverbs.

                            So far I am spending most time with the Class A amp model, but did try the acoustic and flat sttings with a Yamaha AC3R. It sounded better in the flat setting with the built in mic modeling on the AC3R, to me.

                            I am anxious to try it out as a recording interface.

                            It would be great if it had a looper!

                            I use this amp on small gigs, in a semi-acoustic duo, where I play electric guitar and my partner plays acoustic guitar and sings. This amp is just loud enough to compete with her as amplified by our Yahaha Stagepass 400 PA. The tone is fantastic, and the amp holds the bottom end of my Strat, where my Roland Minicube would not. The amp models are useful, and the effects are nice sounding.

                            The biggest drawback is one that was completely avoidable: printing the labels for the controls gold on black makes them hard to read in dark rooms and on stage. They should have been printed in white, for maximum contrast.

                            A line out would be a great feature in order to go direct to the PA. Last but not least, the on off switch on top can easily be flipped on when in the gear bag, and it is prominent enough, and flimsy enough that I could imagine it getting broken off. So it's perhaps not the most road worthy piece of gear I've ever seen.

                              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:

                                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.
