Yamaha’s original VCM technology*. With this new technology, the user interface is able to reproduce the operational characteristics of each control to deliver guitar amp sound with greater
realism.
* The THR10/5 offers high quality audio sound that only a company like Yamaha, with its expertise in advanced audio technologies, can deliver. Its ability to playback audio files on a computer via a USB connection, or playback audio files on a smartphone or other audio playback
device connected to the AUX IN jack, makes it feel like you are in the studio, playing along with
the musicians as they record. And because the THR10/5 is portable, you can enjoy this experience wherever you like.
• Incorporates VCM Effects similar to those found in Yamaha’s high-end mixers for high
quality effects.
• Utilizes Yamaha’s original Extended Stereo technology to deliver an unbelievably wide
stereo image, wider than the unit’s compact size.
• Includes Steinberg’s professional quality music production software Cubase AI that lets
you enjoy full-fledged recording in the convenience of your home.
• Two-way power system allows the unit to operate either on AC power or battery power so
you can use the amp outside and other places that lack access to AC power.
• Includes a chromatic auto tuner.
*What is VCM Technology?
An original physical modeling technology developed by Yamaha, VCM Technology reproduces the characteristics of
analog circuitry at a micro level to accurately reproduce the modeled equipment.

[About amp types]
THR’s GAIN t and MASTER y controls
work in the same way as the preamp and
master controls on a tube amp. The GAIN t
control provides preamp gain and distortion
while the MASTER y control affects power
amp level. The response of the MASTER y
control differs depending on the amp model
used but it affects volume, gain and power
amp compression.Using the GUITAR OUTPUT !3 control you can use the amp’s GAIN
t and MASTER y controls to set your tone
at any level.
THR utilizes a newly designed amp-modeling
technology using Yamaha’s Virtual Circuitry
Modeling (VCM) technology. VCM gives
THR the power to model real amps incredibly accurately, with each control working
and responding exactly as it does on the real
thing.
CLEAN: Rich, clean tones from a 6L6 power
section with gentle breakup for incredible
jazz, blues and country sounds.
*When the BASS, MIDDLE, and TREBLE controls

with bright, clear, dynamic power amp
distortion characteristics.
