Yamaha's expertise shows again

Avison_UK, 17.03.2016
Use: for practice with my electro acoustic guitars, and my Yamaha Silent Guitar (361839). With the SLG I would use the pre-amp in the THR5A output to headphones for truly silent playing (at night, for instance, at home).

What is it? I find many reviews less than clear on this. Yamaha THR devices actually 'model' sound, and also have a small amplification (the THR10's are 5W+5W and, importantly, that's the same for the THR5's). I own 3 THR's (2 10's for general and electric guitar, and now the newest THR5A - which I should have bought a long time ago). The THR5A is SPECIFICALLY for acoustic guitars, modelling types of microphones for variety I suppose, but also to enable simulation of a live environment where the sound engineer, for instance, might want to use a dynamic mic, but where you tend to prefer the balance and depth of a large condenser. Well, you can model all of that and put your views intelligently to the engineer, who may help.

[Notes for the Silent Guitar: turn off the mic emulation (use PU only), and turn off the effects (reverb and chorus) and let the THR process the guitar's output 'dry' with its own magic.]

Pros. Lots of pros for this thing. Firstly, it's small despite it's identical power to its bigger THR10 brothers. And it's a lovely sort of gold colour - really nice, with that glowing grill when it's on. But the quality of the sound (pre-amp stage) is wonderfully rich and thought through. Better I think than the THR10 range, which seem less controlled (but, let's face it, they're geared towards electric guitarist winding up the effects). The compressor (which I don't use much just on my own playing) is actually controlled on the device rather than only available by computer link, and lets you blend into an instrument mix better during recording. Look it up.

Cons. I don't want to say anything bad, but there'll be somebody that will point out that if you pump up the amplifier volume the bass corrupts. Look - this is a small amp, with 2 smallish speakers, so there are limits. Pass through it to a larger amp (through the phones jack or USB) if you need volume. A good trick is to not drive the THR too hard from your instrument - let the volume control on the THR give the punch. On a silent guitar that means lowering its own output volume to about 1/3rd ideally, then turning up the THR volume to compensate.

Conclusion: this is a fantastic help for acoustic players which looks groovy, fits in a tiny bag (camera case, for instance), and makes cleverly engineered sounds. My silent guitar is nylon (I use a mix of guitars) and the 'nylon' setting (not sure what mic that's emulating) allows all the subtlety of nylon to come out, and that's why finger style players like me have nylon-strung modern guitars - expression. But my steel-strung guitars get 5 star treatment from the mic types. Condenser always my favourite on my Takamines, as they's already put 'tube' into the equation through CoolTube technology in their own pre-amps.

Carefully and quickly brought to me in the UK from Thomann, as always. Make your guitar happy - it's infectious!

Great sound for a small unit

Tiappa, 31.01.2018
This is a great sounding amp! I had mistakenly bought it to use as an acoustic guitar and a vocal amp, all in one, but later realized that unlike the Roland Mobile AC it only has one jack input and an aux input which isn't great as a mic in. However, for just guitar, it sounds fantastic! Big sounding despite the small sound, some cool EQ presets (and I think you can tweak them very precisely, digitally, although I did not try this feature), two excellent and simple to use FX channels (compression is a huge plus and not something you usually see on these kinds of amps, and the reverb sounds great) and very light so it's great if you are on the move. It's slightly more expensive than the Roland AC but comes with it's own power adapter and weighs less as a unit.
