Started a thread about these about a month ago. It died pretty quick. I love Yamaha; I hope they use their new modeling technology to make more products.

I just jumped though the Yamaha videos - kinda frustrating. Was there any playing through the amp - or just people talking?

Hi,

I have the THR10 at home for a review I'm writing for FUZZ, the Swedish guitar mag (www.fuzz.se).

I have just tried it and there are some questions I want Yamaha to answer before I say anything.


Cheers,

Mats N

Cool, I'm curious to see the review but....simulated glowing tubes? Come on. They make some very bold promises, can't wait to hear about it.

Agreed, they do make some bold claims about the tone of the amps. They'll have to "put up" to survive in the market with the Fender Mustang series and all the $300-$400 modelers out there.

I do think the THR offers some unique features that I would pay for....but it's gotta sound great...bottom line.

I'm very intrigued. If it performs as promised I can see one of these in my future.

Also intrigued. It might have the stuff from the AG Stomp and the DG Stomp in it. Both were pretty cool, imho, especially the AG. I'd hope that they've done some updating, otherwise... not so cool... depends on price, eh?

I like the beer bottles on the side of the couch.

Kinda disappointed they went right from the 'clean' to the 'lead' setting and skipped over 'crunch' which is the one I would want to hear most. 'Clean' and 'lead' did sound good... the higher gain/modern stuff? Eh... not my cup of tea and I didn't care for it, but I'm sure it's useful to a lot of folks.

Interesting concept, and although there is more talking than playing, the demos don't sound bad. I personally don't have a need for it but if it's priced right and sounds good it might fill a gap.

Just the other day I was thinking about the great effects in the Magic Stomp. Too bad it didn't have an editor. Hopefully the THR will inherit effects from the Magic Stomp.

I've been reading up on it on their site. Looks like the THR5 doesn't have presets and neither has foot switching capability. However if you have another modeler laying around the hifi output could make a great amp for that.

Saw a video on YT that says these will retail for 299 and 199 in The UK. The exchange rate would make the THR10 $473 in the US. So maybe $400 street. I gotta say though, I hope they sound better in person than on the videos. They seem kind of harsh.
