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…
THR5A offers four acoustic mic simulations and one clean amp modeling for electric guitar.
CONDENSER / DYNAMIC / TUBE / NYLON / EG CLN
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 thr5a:
I just recently started playing guitar and this is my first amp. I'm VERY meticulous about the things I buy and I research everything to find the best bang for the buck. After hunting the web I came across this little beauty and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I picked it up and, needless to say, I couldn't be happier! The sound from this little amp is so clear and much louder than I expected it to be. I can plug it in and play in the house with the volume low and still feel/hear all of the effects. I also love the tuning and effect options that it has. Being a beginner, it really gives me so much room to really find the sound that I like. It doesn't have individual knobs for Bass, Mids and Treble but that is perfectly fine because the pickup on my guitar has adjustments for these. The construction is super solid, which is a big deal to me. It doesn't feel like it's going to fall apart. Having the option to run it on batteries or plugging it in is another great feature. Bottom line is that if you want an acoustic amp that is easily portable, sounds great and has a number of sounds to play with... You can't go wrong with the THR5A!!!
- Excellent Craftsmanship
- Great Sound
- Highly Responsive
