Excerpt: Ordered this little gem online and got it in the mail yesterday. Played with it for 5 hours straight - couldn't keep my hands off it. Not sure why others wouldn't gig with this thing. I plugged it straight into my mixer board and it sounds awesome thru the PA. I'm a professional, working musician and I would trust this thing in just about any type of setting. Every setting on this thing is perfectly thought out by the Yamaha engineers.
Pros: Durable, Excellent Craftsmanship, Great Intonation, Great Sound, Highly Responsive
Summary: Really can't get over how good this sounds! I have to be honest and say I sometimes spend more time trying to get a good sound than I actually do playing my guitar. However, with this magic box I was able to create 5 quality tones (and save them in the presets bank) pretty much straight out of the box. When I loaded up the THR editor I was able to do my usual tweaking to get the sound perfect.
Summary: I think this is a great little amp. The sound is really good at low levels (if practicing at night). I was looking for a good clean sound in a small amp, and I'm really pleased with both that and the higher gain settings on this amp. The ability to play along with your backing tracks makes it ideal for practicing with. I mainly use this in conjunction with the THR editor software which I find really useful to fine tune the amp and effects settings.
Summary: After owning the amazing THR5 for six months I decided to upgrade to the THR 10. The extra outlay is definitely worth it. Better bass, bigger sound, acoustic/bass amp fx and the ability to store sounds directly to the THR. This is the perfect home amp/recording package. I can't recommend this enough !
Summary: A wide variety of sound and it looks great too. The ability to connect the amp to my PC via the supplied USB cable means I can use the THR software to adjust the sounds even more than the top panel controls allow, and I can now record my dubious playing. Awesome.
Summary: this is probably the best practice tool you could own. with a 2 year old and 2 month old babies, practicing had become almost impossible in my house, except for unplugged. its really easy to use and once you've dialed in your sounds you don't want to stop playing. those tiny speakers really kick out some sound! i'm chuffed with mine one anyway.
Summary: My initial thoughts- -Clean sound is forgiving compared to a valve amp. Well built, great looking. Impressive stereo imaging. Good for rock music but it's not going to replace monitors and a subwoofer. -The low end is fine for electric guitar. I think pushing an acoustic or a bass through it would be asking a bit too much. Having played with it for two weeks- The Jcm800 sound is great fun!
Summary: I bought the THR-10 on reading some of teh reviews and to use with my new JTV-59 as I was left a bit disappointed playing the 59 through regular guitar amps. The THR gives a fantastic sound particularly with the acoustic models on the 59 and acoustic amp model setting athough I can get realy convincing Stones and Zepellin tones as well from it much better than you would imagine from such a small package.
