Hi linleechiun, welcome to the forums :)

I assume you mean a new "version" of the THR5A because of course it has been out since 2013? Quite a while anyway.

I have not heard anything about new versions of the THR5A or any other THR models but it would make sense if there were to be new versions as they have been on the market unchanged now for several years and the competition have upped their game since the THR was first released.

I am checking on this now and will update if I hear anything.

Welcome to the forum and the string section. :D

A new THR-5A is breaking news to me,
but I honestly haven't heard about it before your post.

Please fill us in if there is anything to it.

Best Regards

Thanks, guys
Thing is I was looking to buy a thr5a in Feb, all the stores were out.
One of the owner contacted the Yamaha Taiwan office for stocks, then got the "info".
They didn't say much about the whole series, just something like "5a is out even in Japan, will be a new replacement"
Now it's April.Still waiting. Just hope they will get it bluetooth-ed or app-ed .


I've been wondering how is thr5a gonna sound by plugging my full hollow archtop guitar into.
So far I kind of like my archtop on Roland micro cube Acoustic mode, just looking for more possibilities.

Checked with Yamaha UK and they don't know anything about a new THR. Or if they do they can't say which would mean if there is a new one it is probably a while off yet. If it was imminent they would have put out an embargoed press release.

That is a good guitar the SLG200N. I have not tried the Roland CM30 monitor so don't know what that is like.

Still no new THR5 but I assume you saw the THRII series that has just been released?

:clap: :clap: :clap:
Roland CM30 is simply a little PA monitor work with anything into it. Love it.
And I use some "cab-sim" pedals to get those typical big brand amp sound.
And a blue tooth receiver so I stream my phone and laptop into it. Tough working horse. (Y)


Still waiting for the "a".
Let's say "THR10a II " maybe? (Y)
