Summary: Fantastic for practice at home at low volume. But once I get "that sound" I want to use it in performance or in a jam, and here is the limitation of THR. Give us a line out to plug into a cab or mixer when volume is required. Also, please Yamaha, give us an iOS version of the THR Editor. These little amps are so portable, but I am limited to the 5 presets. I have dozens of patches on my desktop computer that I created with Editor.
Pros: At Home, Great Effects Weditor, Great Effects With Editor, Jamming With Friends, Outstanding Sound, Totally Portable
Summary: I have been playing with a friends THR10C and I am going to buy one next week. There are so many good things to say about this amazing little amp, already said in the other reviews. I will reiterate the one negative... if this had a line-out, I would line it into my 200W acoustic amp... the THR10C would become my primary effects interface for both electric and acoustic guitars.
Pros: Acoustic And Electric, Battery Power, Both Acoustic Electric, Excellent Effects, Excellent sound, Glow Light Is Cool, Good For Acousticelect, Lightweight
Summary: I had never heard of this amp until I saw it at a major music store and started reading reviews online. I was impressed with what I read and the employees highly recommended it. I bought it that same day and have not regretted my purchase. The THR10C is my favorite amp for practice. It can run off of batteries (which last a long time) and I now find myself going outside on the porch and playing for hours.
Pros: Durable, Excellent Craftsmanship, Great Intonation, Great Sound, Highly Responsive, Looks Great, Makes Me Play More, Runs Off Batteries, Runs Off Electric
Summary: Love this thing. It is now the center of my home practice space. The big things I think that Yamaha has missed is the software to do everything from an iPad and a line out to send the output to a mixer. Frankly I would buy another one for those 2 features... in a minute. I play jazz, almost every musician I know uses an iPad for charts and performance support. Sure laptops are fine but in a professional pickup environment what we have is music stands.
Pros: Durable, Excellent Craftsmanship, Great Intonation, Great Sound, Highly Responsive
Excerpt: I've been a street musician for years and avoided electric amps due to all the cons against traveling with too much equipment. An acoustic guitar and strong voice work well. This little box sure packs a lot of options and paired with my Yamaha silent classical guitar this is one fine sounding setup. I love the presets so I can switch from blues to country to folk with a button.
Pros: 5 Presets Quick Adjust, Durable, Great Intonation, Great Sound, Highly Responsive
Summary: This amp seemed way to quiet until I worked out what it's all about. If you need good tones at surprisingly low volumes then this is definitely the amp for you. You really can play it in the living room and I have to agree with Yamaha' saying it will make you play more. Then of course there's the recording and playback side to this amp and bundled Cubase software. Realistically you could not ask for more in a home practice amp.
Summary: 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...
Excerpt: Overall an excellent product featuring everything you can get out of practice/recording amp. The 5 vintage modeling amp types are very precise to the original sounding amps plus they can be modified on top of that. Phones are a giant plus if you want to practice and not make a ton of noise. AUX input is great for practicing to your favorite tunes or learning them.
Pros: Compact, Extremely versatile, Great sound, Looks great
