Comments about Yamaha thr10c:
This is a great amp to use for practice and small jam sessions. I love the amp modeling choices especially the class A and Deluxe options...but they all have their own unique sound and I do use them all..and even the flat setting for plugged in Acoustic sounds great. The amp is light, rugged, has tons of tone choices, has a aux input for ipod playalong,headphone jack and recording software and Editing software which was a bit problematic to download but offers a nice way to capture and save settings...along with the six built into the amp. The only downside of the amp..is you have to crank the volume up if you're playing with others or mike the amp, that and the fact that the built in effects are combined, can't select each one separately..but for this price..that is really nitpicking. The amp has great tonal qualities at bedroom volume levels.

Comments about Yamaha thr10c:
I am still learning about all the capabilities for this amp, but what really stands out for me is how you get the outstanding tone, sustain and dynamics of a full size amp at conversation level volume. It's perfect for when you want to practice or play without blasting everyone else in the house (or neighborhood). I have had small amps in the past, but they still required some volume behind them to reveal any playing dynamics and tone. Not so with this amp.
I downloaded the THR editor which has a lot of slots for creating and saving settings. I believe you save can them to the presets on the amp. The editor has slots for 100 different user preferences, or models. I just need to figure out how to fully exploit it's capabilities.
There are 2 knobs for on-board effects which are limited to chorus/flanger/phaser/tremolo, the other is tape echo/echo-delay/spring/hall reverbs.
So far I am spending most time with the Class A amp model, but did try the acoustic and flat sttings with a Yamaha AC3R. It sounded better in the flat setting with the built in mic modeling on the AC3R, to me.
I am anxious to try it out as a recording interface.
It would be great if it had a looper!
