Developed by a team of guitarists in search of the ultimate tone, THR5 delivers the sound that you want and the feeling that you need. Effects that enhance and complement your playing combined with room-filling reverbs and delays to push your playing to new levels. And thanks to THR5's unique design and focus, stadium-filling volume isn't a prerequisite - everything about this amp is designed to fit the way you play, right down to the need to keep it quiet sometimes. With tone and feel like this, you'll appreciate the ability to keep playing all night…
Most of THR5's effects feature VCM effects processors. Based on the technology used in Yamaha's professional audio mixers, VCM effects give unsurpassed realism and quality.
VCM effects are capable of capturing subtleties that simple digital simulations cannot even approach, going beyond simple simulation and delivering the truly musical performance that makes classic analogue gear invaluable even in today's digital production environment. Effects on the THR5 include Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Tremolo, Delay, Delay/Reverb and Reverb.
Yamaha H-Fi Audio Technology
THR5 was developed with Yamaha's award-winning AV division to offer true hi-fi stereo sound and a new experience in guitar amplifiers. The exclusive, specially designed speaker enclosure, is optimised to handle both guitar and stereo playback sounds making THR5 uniquely capable of giving you amazing tone for both your guitar and your track from a compact, portable amp.
THR5 incorporates Yamaha's new Extended Stereo Technology to create an incredibly wide, spacious audio image. Stereo tracks and studio quality reverb take on a depth unimaginable from such a small enclosure.
Battery Or AC Powered
THR5's two-way power supply lets the unit operate on AC (PSU supplied) or battery power.
THR5 is bundled with Cubase AI, Steinberg's professional music production application that offers full-fledged recording and editing.
The THR5 Editor, available for download from Yamaha, offers deep editing of amp and effect parameters using a computer. Additional in-depth controls include compressor and noise gate functions.
THR5's design provides stereo playback from your smartphone or other device through its AUX jack or direct from your computer via the USB connection.
Tap Tempo and Tuner
Tap tempo function to quickly set delay time. The built-in chromatic tuner features accurate, stable tuning and an easy to read display.
Virtual Tube Illumination

The Yamaha THR5 was bought after a good deal of review reading and trying other small amps. So far and I remain happy with it. The sound output is rich and full even at fairly low volumes but it can fill a room easily enough without distorting. The different filters add interest but with the ability to alter the setting using an app and USB connection (not yet tried) it does seem able to grow and expand in the sound signatures it can deliver. I was caught out by the headphone out being a 6.35 jack size, are many headphones still 6.35mm jacked nowadays? Needed a trip to Maplins before headphones could be used but the unit does give a decent headphone out sound. The power supply is 15v and needs a specific power supply which is a pain (expensive to replace) but the AA batteries are easy to get and modern rechargeable are pretty good. The stated life on battery is six hours and so far that seems accurate. The red glow behind the speaker grill, to emulate valves, and retro styling do make an attractive unit and has had a few nice comments.
In all whilst accepting it is rather at the upper end of price for small practice amps it is definitely substantially better in the sound, features and looks of cheaper battery practice amps.
|Will need another, this amp ok for practice, but finding it limited for control|
|Great wee practice amp - this is my second one - unobtrusive with nice tone|
