Yamaha has unveiled its new THR-II desktop amp series, an upgrade to its beloved, Paul Gilbert-approved THR line.
The THR-II features 15 new amp tones, in addition to three modeled mic sounds for acoustic-electric guitars, three bass amp models and three flat voicings for use with other instruments.
Effects-wise, like the original THR, four delays and reverbs - echo, echo/rev, spring and hall - plus four modulation effects - chorus, flanger, phaser and tremolo - are included.
New options for the THR-II wireless models include Bluetooth compatibility, a built-in wireless receiver - compatible with a Line 6 Relay G10T transmitter - and a rechargeable battery with up to five hours of battery life.
Three models of the amps are available; the THR10II, THR10II Wireless and THR30II Wireless. The THR30II, unlike its counterparts, features two stereo 1/4” line outputs.
Standard features across all three models include aux, phones and input jacks, plus a USB port for direct recording and playback. Users can also edit their sound on all three amps with Yamaha's free THR Remote app for Mac, PC and mobile.
The Yamaha THR10II ($299), THR10II Wireless ($449) and THR30II Wireless ($499) desktop amplifiers will be available later this year.
