Yamaha’s THRII portable amp range has proved extremely popular. Improving on the original THR which was released back in 2011, the THRII brings Yamaha’s portable amp range bang up to date with features such as Bluetooth support, Wireless audio and built-in rechargeable batteries.
That was all fine for electric players but there was nothing for acoustic guitarists, until now! Enter, the new THR30IIA.
The new THR30IIA boasts three authentic-sounding microphone models — dynamic, tube and condenser—as well as onboard effects, including compression, chorus and studio-quality delay and reverb. The stereo reverbs and audio playback, in particular, utilize Extended Stereo Technology (EST), which results in a more immersive listening experience than standard stereo.
The THR30IIA incorporates a professional-quality Yamaha D-PRE microphone preamp, as well as a dedicated mode for nylon-string guitars and a multipurpose flat setting. Three-band equalization provides for comprehensive tone shaping, while a specially designed playback system was optimized to provide hi-fi sound quality through two 3.5″ speakers. This perfect combination of innovative technology and inspiring tones enables players to experience their acoustic-electric guitar sound as if it were produced in a professional studio.
A built-in rechargeable battery lets musicians play anywhere their music takes them, while the integrated wireless receiver combines with an optional Line 6® Relay® G10T transmitter to offer players a fully cable-free performance. The amp also includes a USB port for direct recording and playback, facilitated with the bundled Steinberg software for desktop and mobile recording. The amp can also be used with the free Yamaha Rec’n’Share app (available for iOS and Android) which allows musicians to record audio and video along with songs from their music library, then easily share performances online.
Bluetooth support enables wireless playback from Bluetooth audio devices, MIDI footswitch control and communication with the included THR Remote editor/librarian app, compatible with Mac®, PC and mobile devices.
Finally, the amp is equipped with 1/4″ instrument and XLR combo mic inputs, stereo 1/8″ Aux-In and Phone jacks, as well as 1/4″ line-level outputs.
