Comments about Yamaha THR10X High-Gain Modeling Combo Amp:

Standout as a desktop guitar solution. Perfect for recording and low volume practice. Integrates very easily into Studio One and Mixcraft. Download drivers, editing software and good to go. NO latency thru the unit. Easy blending between DAW(usb) and Guitar. The fact that it records L/R processed tracks AND L/R DI's is killer(if that is what you want). Like all gear, seems a little pricy but sounds good and I don't have to mike my amps from another room. Keeper.

    Comments about Yamaha THR10X High-Gain Modeling Combo Amp:

    Got this for my vacation since it's size and battery operated, I hooked it up to my PC to get more out of it than knobs let's you get like different cabs, compression and noise gate, so fun making my own presets ! The Southern High thru a vintage 4X12 is my favorite, and adjusting the volume, gain & master give you ANY tone from Blues to full blown metal and clean with compressor & reverb will be all you need for your Tele and Strat ! I played my American Precision Bass and Martin thru it too with equally pleasing results. Just pull the trigger and get one, I went with this high gain after trying the Classic which lacked the amount of gain I was wanting and was pleasantly surprised at the cleans on it ! Be sure to download Yamaha's link and let the tone tweaking fun begin, i sat messing with it for hours yesterday and going back today to readjust more for my upcoming vacation

          Comments about Yamaha THR10X High-Gain Modeling Combo Amp:

          Incredible. Sounds like a half stack in your bedroom at minimal volume levels. I've owned Super Lead Plexis, JCM 800s, AC30's, an Orange Dark Terror, etc and this is my favorite amp to play on. It's so easy to use and all you have to do is turn a couple knobs to dial up your favorite metal tones. I'm a huge White Zombie fan and this amp nails it. Cleans sound amazing as well, although the quality of your guitar matters (I'm using a '95 USA Robin Machete and it's great). If you're on the fence and not sure about it DO IT. You won't regret it.

            I did lots of research prior to buying this. I had no idea how great it would sound. I have briefly play aq JCM stack, and even a dual rec. This thing sounds so close to those. Seriously it sounds like a tube amp. This is the best amp I have ever played. I was looking for the tube warmth of mesa/marshall but at bedroom levels, I went thru tons of amps, spent thousands and found this. I will never buy another amp. Do yourself a favor buy this and buy it now. If you need a tube warm distorted sound at bedroom levels this is your answer. Do not hesitate. If you do not like it just return it with musicians friends 30 day return policy. Just try it. I promise you will not return it.

              Comments about Yamaha THR10X High-Gain Modeling Combo Amp:

              I just got this little monster in and I am very very happy I bought it. I researched many practice amps and was almost ready to spend about a grand when I came across this dude. It has all the sound of the bigger amps in a compact easy to use 10w version, which is great if you have little people in your house who like to sleep!

              This thing got 5 stars because it is worth it! great price and very fun to play with. I think my favorite part about this amp in general, is that you can plug in your phone or IPOD and jam to any music you want while all through your head phones and not get on your wife or girlfriends nerves.

              Listen I am a tube snob and was very skeptical about this amp at first, but once I got it dialed in- I couldn't stop playing with it. The sounds this thing can make are limitless, anything from Bluesy all the way through to the most metal sounding bands. I play a lot of rock/metal and so I really like that you can dial in a lot of gain all while at low volumes. the clean channel is very poppy like an old Fender reverb amp very clean and clear.

              The only thing I would have done differently, was I would have bought the tote bag that comes with it- that way you can keep up with the cables it comes with. Not a big deal, but would be worth the extra cash if you can swing it. GO BUY THIS AMP- if you still aren't convinced just check out all the videos on youtube. that's what sold me on it.

                I bought the 10X high-gain after buying both the 10, and 10C. The 10 covers the spectrum of low to high gain, The 10C low-gain modeling loves Fenders, and the 10X high-gain loves Les Pauls. The gain stage on all of them is very accurate, and they all clean up wonderfully. If you have nice guitars you'll love these puppies.

                  Comments about Yamaha THR10X High-Gain Modeling Combo Amp:

                  First of all I would like to thank the very knowledgeable customer service rep that took my call. I was going to order the THR10 and then he questioned what type of music I played. After listening to me he recommended the THR10X (high gain) model over the THR10. I didn't even know they had the THR10X which is much more suitable to my style of playing.

                  This is the consummate portable amp with all the whistles and bells. This will be excellent to travel with its light weight and size.

                  I had originally ordered a Vox Mini Soundbox and fortunately for me it was on B.O. for months. I finally tried one at my local GC and the THR10X blows the Vox out of the water in every category. MF and Yamaha can't be beat:-)

                    Comments about Yamaha THR10X High-Gain Modeling Combo Amp:

                    It sounds very good and when miked it has an incredible tube type feel , the warmth and pick attack especially if you play fast . It also brings out your guitars natural timbre and percussive feel , which a lot of amps do not .
                    One sweet bonus is the fact that has a transparent auxiliary input , that works great and your devices sound is not manipulated by the amplifiers knobs , just the auxiliary volume , so it's cool if you want to jam with songs, or listen to tunes .
                    The sound is awsome , and the brown II sound is definitely 5150 ish . Totally worth the money . The clean channel is not that loud , but sounds very clean .
                    Miked up with a senheiser e-609 it is almost a dead ringer for my 50 watt 5150iii . It will smoke any line 6 product on any day . I love it and even though it's not super loud it's fun enough and miked through a p.a , could totally be justified in a performance setting. try it !

                        If this was a tube amp, players would be falling over themselves and paying thousands to get one. But this is a solid state modeling amp, so some "tube snobs" may dismiss the amp. Huge mistake. Their loss.

                        I own tube amps from Marshall,Mesa Boogie,Hughes and Kettner, and Blackstar, and my THR10x gets played the most. So easy to play and so easy to dial in and get the sounds you want. Want AC/DC? Van Halen? Ozzy? 80s rock? Modern metal? Blues? Even cleans. This amp does it quick and easy, and sound great doing it.

                        Yamaha markets this as a player's 3rd amp. It is PERFECT for practicing in your room. While it can get loud, I really like how I can get huge distortion at very low volumes. It has multiple presets, built in effects, is portable, and can even run on batteries if you want to use it where there is no power. This is an amazing amp that I wish was available when first started playing guitar. It would have saved me plenty of time and money I spent searching for other amps.
