YAMAHA THR5A ACOUSTIC ELECTRIC GUITAR MODELING AMPLIFIER
THR5A is optimised for use with electric-acoustic guitars.
Utilising advanced modelling technologies developed by Yamaha, the THR5A offers simulations of classic tube condenser and dynamic mics combined with studio-grade effects to recreate recording studio tone direct from your guitar – wherever you are.
The THR5A delivers 10 watts of power through two YAMAHA designed Hi-Fi stereo speakers and features Virtual Circuitry Modelling (VCM) for authentic tones, four mic models plus ‘Nylon’ setting for classical guitars, morphing tone control, dual stompbox and delay/reverb effects. There is also USB connectivity, Steinberg’s Cubase AI DAW software and may be either battery or AC powered.
Developed by a team of guitarists in search of the ultimate tone, THR delivers the sound that you want and the feeling that you need. Effects that enhance and complement your playing combine with room-filling reverbs and delays to push your playing to new levels.
As a result of THR’s unique design and focus, stadium-filling volume isn’t a pre-requisite – 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 THR’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 VIRTUAL CIRCUITRY MODELING
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 analog gear invaluable even in today’s digital production environment.
