New to Yamaha Thr10x & having problems

Unread post by natas2000 » Thu Jan 17, 2019 3:32 am

I was getting back into guitar after 15 years and I was never that good and never had a good amp.
I got this because I like Thrash,metal and ACDC.
I was lured to the Thr10x because in reviews I saw it was awesome sounding on Youtube. Nobody had one in stock to check out so usually I wouldn't buy it,but of course this time I thought do the opposite. I'm not sure I made a mistake yet. I maybe should of bought a Boss Katana.
I heard many play just a few chords and it sounded like Metallica or Van Halen without altering it through the computer,that's what the Youtubers said.
I did notice many mic'd the amp. I know some of the sound is because of the Youtubers playing ability.
I cant get the top ( E and sometimes A) strings from thumping. Not much crunch. Like I said I not that great at playing but I can palm mute an open E
I haven't turned it up because I cant (apartment) I mainly use headphones.
Guitar in a new Epiphone Les Paul Pro.
I haven't tried the software yet.
It DIDN'T come with a CD,gives a code so I don't think it needs one anymore?
Any Ideas I should try?

Hi natas2000,

welcome to the THR forum !

Concerning the softwares, download links are in this post: viewtopic.php?f=135&t=12521
The THR Editor allows you to memorize more presets and to access some functions that can't be accessed with any knob on the amp. So, it is not compulsory but it's really interesting.

I have a THR10, so I don't know how should sound a THR10X. But note that the THR10 does not sound as good through headphones as through its speakers. See this post: viewtopic.php?f=135&t=9834&p=60542&hili ... nes#p60542

YES, you need to download the software needed to run the THR editor,
then get a sound library from here: viewtopic.php?f=135&t=9613#p56106

That will give you a bundle of sounds to experiment and work with.


...and …

Welcome to the forum and the string section :D

Best Regards

Is that the version of Cubase Ai that comes with the THR? Have you installed it anywhere else before?
