Yamaha Guitar Amplifiers
Each of Yamaha's modeling guitar amps is designed and built for a certain type of player, which means that it's a straightforward process to match the right model to your playing style. If you're looking for versatile modern sounds, a good starting point is the THR10. This combo amp has settings for clean, crunch, lead, Brit hi, modern, bass, ACO and flat tones, and a pile of effects and output controls on top of that. It also offers a USB connection so you can do direct recording to your digital workstation. For those who want a heavier, more metal-friendly sound, there's also the THR10X High-Gain Modeling Combo Amp, which models in two "power" and two "Brown" modes as well as Southern hi, clean, bass and flat.
Are you more of a vintage rocker? If so, the THR10C Classic Combo may be the Yamaha guitar amp for you. This model is designed to create the warm, rich tones needed for more laid-back genres like blues and classic rock. Acoustic guitarists aren't out in the dark, either: the THR5A is the perfect companion for an acoustic-electric guitar, giving you a great combination of natural acoustic tone with the versatility of modeling and effects.
It's okay to geek out a little about Yamaha guitar amplifiers, considering that their classic-looking exteriors hide some high-tech modeling on the inside. It's tough to look at these amps without wanting to take one home - and Yamaha seems to realize that, since they're all available bundled with carrying bags if you like. If you're searching for a durable and versatile modeling combo amp to add to your collection, these options are sure to fit the bill.
