Those Yamaha amps that look like transistor radios

Recommended Posts

There seem to be three of them. Which to buy?

I am asking because I am interested, but also because I wanted the first post in one of the forums. I am shallow that way.

If you want a broad range of sounds the standard THR10.

if you prefer blues and rock tones then the THR10C.

If you are a metal head the THR10X is the one.

 

I have the 10C and think it's great. The Andertons guys reckon the wee Vox thingy has the edge on sounds, but it looks like a knock-off handbag while the Yamaha looks cool as. Suppose it depends if these things matter to you.

I have a THR10 - the original one that is a cream colour. Very good amps, now there is a whole load of others. I got mine for bass

How do you find it for bass?

I tried mine when I first got it but wasn't that impressed. Just as well I bought it for guitar use I suppose! 😂

Not bad. I mean there is a limit on what you are going to get from something that size for bass, but for just carrying round to places and fiddling before gigs I loved it. I can’t say I use it as much now but I still hang on to it, great for the garden!

The standard cream THR10 is the one to get, I think. There is a mod you can by using the EQ of the delay which tames some of the top end in a very pleasing way. I think the guy posted it on YouTube.
