Yamaha amp THR10c/x presets for THR10 ?

Unread post by mungiga » Sun Feb 28, 2016 11:21 am

I have seen several people with Yamaha THR10 confirming presets for C and X model work on their vanilla THR10 and I wonder if that still work with firmware version 1.0.4 and 2.0 on the THR10?
People confirming the C/X presets worked was using firmware version 1.0.0 on their amp.
I have not seen anyone with vanilla THR10 say it does not work, only people with the THR10C model say it does not work..
Can you guys with this amp shed some light on this?

And by the way is there any hardware difference on model C and X compared to vanilla THR10?

Hejsan mungiga , Welcome to the Yamaha Forums. :D

I have both the THR-10 (vanilla) upgraded to the version 2.0 firmware, and a THR-10C (standard, no firmware upgrades so far)
In fact, so far, there's no firmware available for the THR-10C , THR-10X or THR-5A

Both THR's can use the same computer and software, ONE at a time, sharing the same software, but NOT the libraries.
A patch for my THR-10 , WILL NOT work on my THR-10C and vise versa.

There might be som computer wizzards out there that can run both amps simultaneously on the same computer,
and share patches on different THR models, but so far I haven't found the way or the need.

I don't know for sure if all THR (5 and 10) amps have EXAXTLY the same hardware inside,
but I would not risk trying to install THR-10 firmware to my THR-10C.
There's no going back since the firmware/upgrades are only for the (vanilla) THR amps.

Best Regards

Thanks for the reply and the welcoming to the forums! :)

I wonder, if I make my own presets, can I make presets that sounds the same on Vanlilla and C version?

The thing is, I want THR10 vanilla because it looks better and I want the diversity of the original presets, but I also want some of the presets with the nice sounds from the C version.
I wonder if it's possible to mimic all those sounds on the normal THR10 with home/custom made presets?
My plan is to then buy THR10 and make my own presets to make it have some of the THR10C sounds.

Or is the features to make custom presets different from each models and perhaps limited to fit that model?

The "vanilla" THR-10 amps are the most versatile, the C and X models are more "specialist".

If you have the "vanilla" amp, you can almost make the same sounds.

THR10 Amp Models:

THR10/5
Clean (American Tube Amp- 6L6)
Crunch (British Class A- EL84)
Lead (Low Gain British- EL34)
British Hi Gain (EL34)
Modern (Hi Gain- 6L6)
Bass (Hi Power Tube)
Acoustic (Ideal for Acoustic Electric)
Flat (Flat Response ideal for non-guitar sources)

THR10C
Deluxe (6L6)
Class A (EL84)
US Blues (EL84)
British Blues (KT88)
MINI (Boutique like- EL84)
Bass, Acoustic, Flat (Same as THR10)

THR10X
Power I ("Crunch Ch" European 6L6)
Power II ("Lead Ch" European 6L6)
Brown I ("Crunch Ch" U.S. 6L6)
Brown II ("Lead Ch" U.S. 6L6)
Southern Cali Hi (U.S. 6550 Tubes)
Clean (Classic American 6L6 12" Speaker)
Bass, Flat

THR5A
Condensor (Microphone)
Dynamic (Microphone)
Tube (Microphone)
Nylon (Ideal for Nylon String Guitars)
Electric Guitar Clean (Classic American Low Gain Tube Amp)

Even though the amps are different, you can make settings close to the original, and you're good to go.

:idea: THR patches on Yamaha Forums: viewtopic.php?f=135&t=9613 :idea:
......... orI can recommend the patch libraries for THR-10 and other amps:
http://guitarpatches.com/patches.php?unit=THR10
http://guitarpatches.com/patches.php?unit=THR10C
http://guitarpatches.com/patches.php?unit=THR10X

I have made custom sounds for both "vanilla" and "C" amps and my favorites like ACDC or Status quo is in both sound libraries.
The patches may differ slightly, but close enough to enjoy playing on either amp.

Hi Peter,
Good stuff, Thank-You for the links. I see quite a few patches I want to try out for the THR-10, Hank Marvin is one of them, I've always liked his version of Apache.

:idea: The THR amp itself, is only part of the magic, your guitar, and mainly the pickups makes the other half. :idea:

Some of the patches may sound muddy if your pickups are too "hot" ......
Either roll back a bit on the volume, or alter the patch a bit with less gain.

When using single coil pickups, some patches may need more gain to get the right growl, but it's doable. ((i))

A few days ago, I bought a second hand THR-10x.
Until then, I thought I had all my sounds covered, including the metal sounds, from my THR-10 and THR-10c
The THR-10X really delivers buzzsaw metal like no other, and even some subtle overdrive on the "clean" channel ...... happy I got it. :wink:

INTERESTING ..... :idea: IF you didn't "upgrade" the firmware to your original THR-10 V.1, you may be able to use patches from THR-10c and THR-10x :idea:

Read about it here: :idea: http://www.tdpri.com/threads/got-my-yam ... ts.577932/ :idea:

FOR SURE, once upgraded, your THR-10 V.2 can not use patches from "10C" and "10X" models,
and the "10C" and "10X" models can only use patches made specifically for each model.

Only THR-10 (V.1) owners who didn't make the v.2 firmware upgrade have a chance of testing if other patches can be used.
The sounds will however NOT be correct since the modeled amp types are different in the 3 THR models.
