Amazing Acoustic Guitar Tone - Anywhere!

Yamaha's THR5A portable acoustic guitar combo amplifier is much more than a great-sounding, battery-powered amp. Optimized for use with acoustic-electric and silent guitars, the THR5A delivers impeccable simulations of dynamic and classic tube condenser mics along with studio-grade effects to give you polished, professional tone wherever you are. You can use the THR5A's stereo speakers for external playback from your iPod or computer. Battery power lets you take your tones anywhere, and thanks to its USB connectivity, you'll also love the way your Yamaha THR5A guitar amplifier fits into your studio.

Yamaha THR5A Portable Combo Guitar Amplifier at a Glance:
  • Loaded with essential mic models and onboard effects
  • Battery powered, so you can take your music anywhere
  • USB connectivity for recording, playback, and preset editing
Loaded with essential mic models and onboard effects

By splitting the effects and mic models across three independent knobs, Yamaha built the THR5A guitar amp to let you combine tones and effects in fun and creative ways. First, pick out your mic model. Condenser, dynamic, tube, and nylon mic simulations, as well as EG CLN (a clean electric guitar setting) give you everything you need to cover a wide range of styles. The THR5A's modulation effects live on a second knob and its delays and reverbs live on a third. The result is a full acoustic-electric amp rig worth of effects and tone combinations. And thanks to Yamaha's Virtual Circuitry Modeling, the THR5A emulates each component of each mic model and effect, giving you super-realistic sound and feel.

Battery powered, so you can take your music anywhere

Want to rock out on a street corner? Pick up your iPod for backing tracks and your battery-powered Yamaha THR5A guitar amp, and you're good to go. What about your next long car trip? With up to six hours of running time on just eight AA batteries, you'll be able to rock out from state to state. Even if you're flying, the entire THR5A fits easily in your carry-on, so you'll be ready to rock as soon as your plane lands.

USB connectivity for recording, playback, and preset editing

There's a hidden side to this go-anywhere, sound-like-anything guitar amplifier: its USB computer connection. There's a lot you can do with the THR5A's USB jack. For one thing, it lets you record right to your DAW. A complimentary copy of Cubase AI is included, so you're set even if you don't already have recording software. You can also use the THR5A's USB for audio playback, letting you rock out to your favorite tunes without reaching for your iPod. Last but not least, there's Yamaha's THR Editor software, which lets you use your computer to dive deep into the THR5A's amp models and effects to create your own presets. It also gives you access to the THR5A's compressor and noise gate for even more tone-tweaking possibilities.

Fantastic technical achievement

The tonal range of this amp is fantastic. It sounds "big" for such a miniscule piece of gear. The output is perfect for playing in the living room / bedroom etc. The effects are studio quality. If you want off-the-wall Pink Floyd sounds, look elsewhere. If you want to dial in the tone of an acoustic guitar to fit any mood, this is exactly the amp for the job.I have been using it as a pre-amp for praise and worship. I take the output from the headphone jack and feed it to the PA and what I dialed in at home is exactly what I get out of the mains. I have also been using it for my electric guitar on the electric guitar setting. With the gain up, I get exactly the crunch I need for contemporary praise.The 'build the tone from the ground up using software' approach is an impressive technical achievement. Kudos to Yamaha for this one. My other acoustic amps are collecting dust at this point.

Yamaha THR5A Acoustic Amp

Perfect with the Yamaha silent classical guitar. Once you get the sound right (I recommend reading the short manual that comes with it) it has a very good nylon string guitar sound with no harshness. This box is loud enough for a large room as a venue and certainly loud enough for practice. I have not tried any editing or recording. But just as an amp, this is an excellent buy for the price and so small and easy to move around.

Best $ I ever spent.

I wanted a small sized amp for practice playing at home for my own pleasure and it has met or exceeded everything I expected from it. If you're looking for a small, easy to carry, great sounding, amplifier, look no further. It may seem expensive a $200 but once you start using it, you will not regret the price at all. In addition to great sounds, it is built very well, controls are all buttery smooth and fit and finish are perfect. Overall, I am delighted with it and give it my highest recommendation.It sounds great with both guitars and ukuleles too. Go for it!
