more importantly THR30 wireless
A THR30... thet would be the only thing that would make me think on changing my old THR10
appears they have listened
I have the THR10C and a Line 6 G10 Relay Wireless so I’m not upgrading to the new one.
The THR10II Wireless has 15 new sounds, rechargeable battery, and Bluetooth for $449. It looks like the G10 receiver will cost extra. Not available until the end of the year according to Guitarworld.
THR30 wireless is $499
Going to have to strongly compare it to the katana air now...
I have a wireless Yamaha too, 800C. Only used batteries. Lol.
Actually that looks cool. It's nice to see the UI is basically the same and they didn't mess up a good thing (simple but effective) there. Hopefully it sounds just as good. Interesting they are dropping the 5 version and adding a big brother, since these are supposed to be dedicated low-volume amps / stereos.
I know what I'll be replacing my 10C with when I wear it out.
IM very interested in this kind of new tech... stereo little amps.
Very cool to practice, travel and play electric guitar. my only fear is if they sound like a ss amp.
I enjoy my THRC very much. It IS a SS amp, so by definition, it sounds like a SS amp. It also happens to sound incredibly good for its size, cost and feature set.
I've had my THR5 since... 2013? It's a great little amp IMO. I also owned a THR100H for a while but sold it. It wasn't what I needed although it sounded great.
I think the THR30 is what people expected when Yamaha hinted a new THR product that turned out to be the THR100. The question is if those little speakers will keep up in a band setting and also, is it really 30 watts? The THR100 is specced at 100 watts but is around 40-50 in reality.
I see line outs but no mentioning of external speaker output.
Sweet! I just plucked courage to get a THR-10. I can hold off for the II version when it rolls out. Seems like there’s everything to gain and nothing to lose from the upgraded model. I’ll probably get the BT version, but I don’t imagine needing the Line-6 model(s).
I've been gigging with the same wireless gizmo, the Line 6 G10T transmitter, albeit with a Line 6 Spider V 120W amp. Cost me $100 and well worth it. Easy to charge, easy to switch the transmitter between instruments - I often gig with 2 or 3 insts, no cables.
The big question is why put the 30 watt version in the same little box with the same tiny speakers?
A 30 or 40 watt 2 x 8 would have sold boatloads.
The argument that the THRs do one thing only went out the window when Yamaha released the THR100.
I would have settled gladly for two 5" to 6" drivers. The Line Out is an improvement. The built-in Wireless receiver I don't need; how faraway is someone going to sit from it with 2 x 3.5" drivers to require wireless capability? 25 to 50 feet across the room? It is one of those decisions that increases the cost, with a feature that I didn't ask for, and serves no practical purpose except to make me buy more unnecessary gear like the Line6 GT10 transmitter. Not! I am going to be cabled up. A footswitch would have been really useful but that is excluded.
That said, I preordered one. It has all the modelled amps that I could conceivably use. I like what I hear. Now for Yamaha to make one in RED!
