Incredible tone? Check. Outstanding effects? Check. Unbelievable stereo playback sound? Check. Small enough to fit on a crowded desk or in your carry-on? Check. Needing your amp to be small and quiet doesn’t mean sacrificing tone and feel any more.


Developed by a team of guitarists in search of the ultimate tone, THR delivers the sound that you want and the feeling that you need. Effects that enhance and complement your playing combine with room-filling reverbs and delays to push your playing to new levels. And thanks to THR's unique design and focus, stadium-filling volume isn't a pre-requisite - everything about this amp is designed to fit the way you play, right down to the need to keep it quiet sometimes. With tone and feel like this, you'll appreciate the ability to keep playing all night…

THR5 offers five amp types:



Most of THR's effects feature VCM effects processors. Based on the technology used in Yamaha's professional audio mixers, VCM effects give unsurpassed realism and quality.

VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling)

VCM effects are capable of capturing subtleties that simple digital simulations cannot even approach, going beyond simple simulation and delivering the truly musical performance that makes classic analog gear invaluable even in today's digital production environment.

YAMAHA Hi-Fi Audio Technology

THR was developed with Yamaha's award-winning AV division to offer true hi-fi stereo sound and a new experience in guitar amplifiers. The exclusive, specially designed speaker enclosure is optimised to handle both guitar and stereo playback sounds making THR uniquely capable of giving you amazing tone for both your guitar and your track from a compact, portable amp.

New Extended Stereo Technology

THR incorporates Yamaha's new Extended Stereo Technology to create an incredibly wide, spacious audio image. Stereo tracks and studio quality reverb take on a depth unimaginable from such a small enclosure.


THR's two-way power supply lets the unit operate on AC (PSU supplied) or battery power.


THR is bundled with Cubase AI, Steinberg's professional music production application that offers full-fledged recording and editing.

THR Editor

The THR Editor, available for download from http://download.yamaha.com, offers deep editing of amp and effect parameters using a computer. Additional in-depth controls include compressor and noise gate functions.

USB Connection

THR's design provides stereo playback from your smartphone or other device through its AUX jack or direct from your computer via the USB connection.


Tap tempo function to quickly set delay time.The built-in chromatic tuner features accurate, stable tuning and an easy to read display.

Great sound and looks from a small amp.

Stephen C. - 17/2/2019

good for quiet practise, which is what I bought it for

Andy . - 29/1/2019

Brilliant sound, I practice in a conservatory and at the low volumes you have to use in a family house the sound quality is the best I've heard from a small amp. All the different modes are fun to play with as well so with built in reverb, phaser and delay as well as various overdrive modes you can easily change the sound to whatever your playing without the bulk of lugging a pedal board around. The built in tuner is also more useful than you would first think.Can't really fault it at this price.

Adrian F. - 15/8/2018

Lots of effects, very compact in size. Perfect for bedroom playing. Great price
