    Looks like Quilter is getting some competition.

    Found a pre order on Dolphin music, looks like it will be around $720 US street price, maybe less...

    That's pretty cool.
    too bad it doesn't have the same effects as the other THR's.

    I have to say I don't get it. I love my THR10, it sounds great. Works fantastically with headphones, and I can plug it straight into my laptop to record. It is almost the perfect practice tool.

    This? I have no idea what it's for. You want to take your THR sound to the stage? Why? You want to practice at ear splitting volume through multiple 12" speakers? We already have tube amps for that. On stage? We already have tube amps for that. In the studio? We already have tube amps for that! Plus it seems to have done away with the Marshall-esque amp models.

    $1300 for the head and another $820 for the cab! :wow: You can buy a lot of tube amp for that money. Insane.

    Please tell me I'm missing something.

    It's yamaha. They tend to live in their own delusional world that they're the only player in the industry.

    There seems to be a slight disconnect between Yamaha's amp pricing and Yamaha's guitar pricing. :wtf:

    Well, considering the price of a 10w amp, the 100w head is not that expensive.
    I agree that's a huge price, but the thr series is well known for their great sound and they clearly sell the product as a competitor of tube amps. A 100w tube amp head is quite expensive, especially the official price whe the product is announced.

    It's too expensive for what I do, just for fun at home, but I would love to see a thr30 or thr50 head, with a better price. The problem of the thr10 is the street price is not bette than the official price...never found a great deal on a brand new one. Always 299€ in EU.

    Edit : one weird thing though....i see the cabinet speaker is not FrFr....I've read all the litterature of yamaha about FRFR and why it sounds so good....but the thr100h is not the same concept as the thr10 so !

    1. Get a line 6 cab or ones you want (they're FRFR speakers)

    2. Connect the THR10 to a power amp of your choice using it's headphones out. If using non-FRFR, disable cab emu in THR10. If using Line 6 FRFR cab, leave the cab emu on. Then connect the power amp to the cab.


    I am pretty sure it should not cost up to 1000 dollars to do that.

    Have to compare that price to it's competition. Its pricier than other options in that niche, by a bit.

    I'm building on my other thread, but I could buy a used Bandit and Line 6 board (or many others used) for $500 and this would include every FX under the sun. How much better will this unit be?

    Well the thr is known for its great sounds, and many sounds. Usually, with tubes amp, you get one type of sound and that's it. I love tube amps, but you have to realize one day the technology will beat tube amps. Just a matter of time.

    I would not bet any tube any tube amp can defeat the thr100h and you would beed many tube amps to face the many voicings of the thr100h.

    I'm not saying the thr100h is not expensive, or that it will eat tube amps for breakfast...i'm just saying don't judge before you try it. After all an axe fx is much more than $1,300

    Yet a Fender Mustang IV is only $500. And it has FX. So again, why spend so much? Will the Yamaha be that much better?
