Whenever, Wherever

The THR is the perfect amp for everywhere you play that isn't on-stage. This series of portable guitar amplifiers utilizes Yamaha's acclaimed Virtual Circuitry Technology to deliver authentic tube amp sound, incredibly realistic effects, and hi-fi quality stereo playback, so that no location is too remote, no tone too elusive, for those moments when you just want to play.

THR5A: Natural Acoustic Tone
THR5A is optimized for use with electric-acoustic and Silent Guitars. Utilising advanced modeling technologies developed by Yamaha, THR5A offers simulations of classic tube condenser and dynamic mics combined with studio-grade effects to create recording-studio tone direct from your guitar and wherever you are.

USB Connectivity
Built to ensure that you sound great and play better, THR amps deliver quality audio playback that allows you to practice along with external audio sources in hi-fi sound. When inspiration strikes, the integrated USB port means that you can lay down tracks effortlessly with your bundled copy of the renowned Cubase AI DAW software. For even more flexibility, you can download THR editor, giving you more detailed control of your THR's tone, effects, and overall sound.

Personalize Your Sound: THR Editor and THR Session
The THR Editor, available for download from download.yamaha.com, offers deep editing of amp and effect parameters using a computer. Additional in-depth controls include compressor and noise gate functions.
THR Session is an iOS app which is optimized for THR. You can slow down songs without losing audio quality, change the pitch or repeat any segment of a song to learn even the trickiest guitar part. It even allows you to cancel out the original guitar sound; it's like playing a session with your dream band! This app is the perfect audio toolbox for today's guitarist and with a Yamaha THR amp, gives you a practice experience like no other.

THR amps come bundled with CUBASE AI, Steinberg's streamlined version of CUBASE. Cubase AI is the perfect entry into the world of computer-based music production and offers powerful, yet easy-to-use software tools for all genres.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreMoncton, New Brunswick
I've had this amp for a couple of weeks now, and it hasn't disappointed. I already own a THR10 but it's mostly for electric amp models with only one acoustic setting. The THR5A, on the other hand, is only for acoustics. I play my Yamaha LL6 and Epiphone EL-00 through its five acoustic model channels, and it sounds, well, amazing ..... just like its THR10 cousin. They're both great amps at 10 watts, and they can also be used as preamps with more powerful amps with watts but few or no amp models or effects. This is exceptional value for the money and the big sound that comes out of these little amps.
