  • THR10 owners...

    I have the THR5 and I am considering an upgrade to the THR10 or perhaps getting the acoustic specific model THR5C once it is released.



    If you had a THR5 instead of the THR10 what are there features exclusive to the 10 that you would miss the most? I am talking mainly about the acoustic model, tone stack, and presets. Recording features and bass model are not something I need.

    Well the bass model is a big deal to me, as is the overall "better" tone of the bigger cab on the THR10. I also like the acoustic model, which I use mainly for stellar hi-fi cleans with an electric guitar.



    Of course, being able to save your presets and having full EQ is just a given.



    I played the THR5 and 10 side by side when they first came out, and the 5 was never even on my radar.





    The THR10 is one of my favorite amps I've ever owned - love it as much as my big rigs.

      Seperate USB/AUX and GUITAR output controls are pretty handy IMO. Being able to lower the guitar input withuot effecting the tone is the main reason. Sure, you could tweek it on the AUX device, but it's pretty nice to have the controls right next to the others. I haven't used the presets yet, but will once I've loaded some patches some that other players have made, just to get an idea of what others are doing with it.

          Bass model is a must for me. I like the flat one as well. Acoustic channel is cool for lead tracks.

            It extra $100 spent on the THR10 is well worth it.







            The much smaller THR5 would make a great little camping amp.

                I just got a thr10 today from HelloMusic



                I wish it was working out for me but it isn't so I plan on sending it back. I'm experiencing the problem of it shutting off when using Batteries which defeats the whole purpose for me. Brand new Fresh Batteries and it shuts down after a very short time, turn it off and back on, repeat. No problem plugged into AC. I suppose I could adjust my playing style and maybe cut back on the drive to lessen the problem but, nope. Don't know if all of them have this problem, if I got an older stock model or what.



                there's a thread on the battery problem here: http://www.thegearpage.net/board/sho....php?t=1077873

                    When I turn mine up ridiculously loud playing with batteries, it will shut off.



                    Playing loud not what the THR is about. I get around 8 hours on a set of rechargeable batteries when I play.

                        What would be great is if the THR10 had a charging circuit (like some RC controllers) built in, so that you wouldn't have to remove the rechargeables between charges. Just plug it in.

                          Sounds like with it running on battery power, it's running with an under-voltaged power source. The AC power supply undoubtedly delivers the required voltage and current required to operate the amp at 100 percent volume.



                          Rechargeable NiMH batteries only produce 1.2 volts, whereas alkaline batteries produce 1.5 volts. The problem is probably a bit worse with NiMH batteries.



                          PS: I own a THR-10, but have yet to run it on batteries.

                            I have purchased four things from HM. Three had problems.



                            I think they get/sell B stock. Or have awful QC.

                              I think you are exactly right. When the batteries start to run down, I get the same thing. I generally use it plugged in too.
