VCM AMP MODELS
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. And thanks to 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…
THR5 offers five amp types
Rich clean tones from a 6L6 power section with early breakup for incredible jazz, blues and country sounds.
Low-powered EL84 class-A tube output with bright, clear, dynamic power amp distortion characteristics.
Low-gain preamp section and EL34 power section for rich, controllable distortion with great midrange definition.
EL34s keep the classic British clarity while a higher gain preamp allows you to push the amp into serious distortion.
Ultra high-gain input section combined with 6L6 output section delivers smooth, powerful distortion
High-power all-tube design for dynamic, driving bass tone.
Electric-acoustic optimized input with mic simulations for natural, clear tone.
Flat response clean input for line sources, tone and effect controls allow shaping of non-guitar sources.
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.

Comments about Yamaha thr5_v2:
I love this amp. Why hasn't someone done it like this before ? I have had many amps before ( Fender Princeton reverb 2 , Fender deluxe ,Peavey ,Roland micro cube , among several others ) I loved the big tube amps but totally unrealistic when just wanting to practice in my bedrooms or apartments. To get the sound you have to crank them . The Roland was good but still to get the sound you wanted you still had to turn it up and the sound just wasn't the same . like the difference between a old 33 LP and a cd or mp3. the old tubes had the richness that couldn't be matched like the 33 LPs and the Roland has the sound of the cds , how to combine the two and sound good ? Yamaha has done it . This amp is awesome it truly reproduces the richness and sound of the old amps while being modern , so you can listen in your apartment or bedroom . It can get loud if you want it too , it is 5x5 watt but you don't NEED too . I have this next to me on the table and play while the others are watching tv and not be disturbed or I take it to my guitar class and can jam with the students . Loudness can be about as loud as other 5watt practice amps out there but it doesn't have to be . This is also awesome in that I can hook it up to my computer and change the different amp models and even create my own sound on the fly . The Cubase Ai software it came bundled with is more complicated than I want use , if you have a mac Garage Band would be a great alternative .Overall Im very pleased and much enjoy my THR5. Thank you so much Yamaha for creating the amp I have so been looking for , for so many years .
