Yamaha THR Guitar Tone Settings

Whether you want to sound like Jimi, Slash, Iron Maiden, Keith Richards or Angus Young the THR range has an amp model for you. With a range of tone controls and effects to tweak you can dial in the best guitar tone for the job every time.

We've already covered how you can use your THR to play along and practice, plus Natalie McCool has laid out how to get better acoustic sound on stage and at home with the THR5A. Now it's time for some good old fashioned rock, from classic to modern with metal and pop thrown in for good measure.

With Cubase AI included with every THR you have what you need to start working on that album, great software and a huge range of pro tones!

It's not just the THR amps which are versatile, Yamaha make great guitars to suit every budget too. You'll see some featured in the videos above.
