Hey all, I'd consider myself a fairly versatile guitarist, but around 70% of my tones involve gain/overdrive in some form. I've heard very good things about the Yamaha THR series, and I needed a good sounding practice/recording amp but i'm torn between the 10 and 10x (I'm sticking with the 10 over the 5 because of the ability to use it as a bass amp, which I may need in the future). My current guitars include: Fender 2010 Japan Std Telecaster: Used for treble-y clean tones, light distortion/fuzz (basically think punk/grunge), some modulated cleans (funk, indie etc.). Epiphone Les Paul Standard: Used for Thicker cleans (usually as an offset for the tele), blues-y crunch tones, thick gainy leads, MAYBE metal if I find that I need a slightly different tone to accompany my M-1000. ESP LTD M-1000: ESP 81 loaded. Used for shred, metal, occasional modulated crunch/cleans (think stuff by akira yamaoka), basically all the kinds of stuff you'd use EMGs for. My amps: Fender Mustang I: Been using it as a practice/recording amp for a while, and while the fender sounds are fairly decent anything gain-related just sounds kinda fuzzy and awful. Will probably put it in storage and keep it as a backup when I get my Yamaha. Fender Super Reverb blackface: Kind of a hand-me-down, dont have many opportunities to use it as I live in an apartment so I suppose i'm just keeping it in the off-chance I find myself gigging. In Summary: So basically i'd like enough versatility to be able to comfortably achieve all the cleaner tones i've listed, but i'd also like my dirtier tones to be as authentic as possible. THR10x owners, do you think that amplifier would be a better choice for my setup than the 10/ can it still achieve good cleaner tones? The price difference is negligible, and i'd like to settle on an amp for practice and recording use basically until it dies, which is why i'm being so careful.
