New amp. THR-10X

Unread postby Buzzard » Sun Mar 05, 2017 8:49 pm

HNAD to ME. ((i))

I bought a second hand THR-10x yesterday, half price, dusty but in great condition.

Since I already have the THR-10 and THR-10c , the only software required is the Preset Library for patches: :idea: https://uk.yamaha.com/en/support/updates/57651_en.html :idea:
This library contains 23 patches, giving you a good start and idea on how to develop your own patches.

I have barely scratched the surface of the THR-10x possibilities yet, but so far I'm VERY pleased with metal sounds already available in the library.

I wasn't in a hurry to get the THR-10x because both my THR-10 and THR-10c can produce decent metal sounds ..... BUT .....
this one churns out the most wicked buzz-saw on steroids, far more powerful than expected. If I knew this before, I would have reached out sooner. :wink:

HNAD Peter!
I've wondered how much different all the THR's sound from each other. I'm curious now to hear the metal sounds of the THR10X.

Hi Jeff.

A nice surprise in the THR-10X sounds, the standard PRESET 1 makes a great Twisted Sister rythm guitar sound.
I could get that from the other two, but not quite as close, this one is spot on to my ears. ((i))
Now I'm working on getting a decent Judas Priest sound. :wink:

Hi Peter,
Some great bands to be dialing up the sounds for sure. I bought my THR-10 new, and debated over the THR-10X (music store did not have one in stock)and ultimately decided the 10 would give me the broader range of tones. I will probably buy one also as it is so convenient and simple to practice with, compared to my other options. (I own 4 amps and 3 sets of effects pedals.) I find myself fiddling with the parameters on these options as opposed to just plugging in and playing. I use the modern setting for distorted settings but would like more options. Does this amp give you a lot of other good options for down and dirty chugging and heavy metal settings? Thank-You. (your link for the clip does not show up for me)

Hi Jeff.

If you add a distortion or overdrive pedal to further boost the signal going to your THR amp, you'll get even heavier distortion.

That being said, the THR-10X is born with some awesome metal amps built in,
and even though I can get close with my THR-10, it's just not quite the same.

If you find a good used one at a good price, I'm sure you won't regret it.

The entire forum has been modernized, and that knocked pictures and youtube clips out.
Saul has restored, and gone back for the time being to keep the forum alive,
so the clips and pictures should be available again.

Regards
Peter

Hi Peter,
Yes, Saul's efforts have paid off and the videos are there now. I've been looking and will grab one when the price is right. (currently most selling for almost new prices) The THR's are truly a great practice amp.
