Loaded with essential amp tones and onboard effects

By splitting the effects and amp models across three independent knobs, Yamaha built the THR-5 guitar amp to let you combine tones and effects in fun and creative ways. First, pick out your amp model. Clean, Crunch, Lead, Brit Hi, and Modern amp sounds give you everything you need to cover a wide range of styles. The THR-5's modulation effects live on a second knob, and its delays and reverbs live on a third. The result is a full amplifier rig worth of effects and tone combinations. And thanks to Yamaha's Virtual Circuitry Modeling, the THR-5 emulates each component in each amp model and effect, giving your 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 THR-5 guitar amp and you're good to go. What about your next long car trip? With up to 6 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 THR-5 fits easily in your carry-on, so you'll be ready to rock out 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 THR-5's USB jack. For one thing, it lets you record right to your DAW. A complimentary copy of Cubase AI comes included, so you're set even if you don't already have recording software. You can also use the THR-5'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 THR-5's amp models and effects to create your own presets. It also gives you access to the THR-5's compressor and noise gate, for even more tone tweaking possibilities.
