A Surprisingly Awesome Sounding Little Amp
I had read all the hype surrounding the THR10 and the variants. I was cautiously optimistic, but frankly expecting to be a little let down. But, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that, overall, it's quite an impressive bit of gear. It sounds *way* better than it should. The amp models are pretty decent, but I mostly used the Deluxe model or Flat (for testing pedals). Like many other modelers, in my opinion, the most convincing models are the cleanest and the dirtiest, and the THR10C is no exception. The medium-gain models are quite good, I should say, but they don't quite react like the amps that they model. And that's not a negative, as frankly they all sound good and are usable. The effects are also very good. The separation that you can get from the speakers is quite shocking, actually. This little thing can fill a small to medium room with very compelling stereo sounds. Reverb is exceptional, and the delay/echo is also very very good. The other modulations effects are all respectable and very usable in mosts contexts. I love the USB out for recording, which works very well. And of course, you can use this as a somewhat expensive headphone amp, but if you have small children or live in an apartment, it's very nice feature and well worth the price. Pair this with a Digitech Trio and a nice set of headphones, and you can have a really authentic-sounding jam at nice volumes that won't bug the neighbors.
