Yamaha Unveils New Wi-fi Guitar Amp
Given that a lot of speakers these days are going wireless, it doesn’t really come as a surprise to learn that the same can be said for guitar amplifiers too. In fact, Yamaha has been doing that for a while now, and the company is back with their latest model in the form of the Yamaha THR30IIA.
However, unlike some of the company’s other THR series of wireless guitar amplifiers, this one seems to have been created for acoustic guitars in mind. This is a 30W amp with dual 3.5-inch speakers and a built-in D-PRE microphone preamp. There are three microphone modes to choose from, such as dynamic, tube, and condenser, and there are also settings for users to choose if they’re playing a guitar with either flat or nylon strings.
When it comes to the wireless connectivity, guitar players will need the Line 6 Relay G10T transmitter which is sold separately. If you don’t own it, you can always connect your guitar directly to the amp using a cable or you can mic it up. There is Bluetooth connectivity as well which allows the amp to double up as a stereo speaker, so it’s like you’re getting the best of both worlds.
Unfortunately, the Yamaha THR30IIA does not come cheap with a price tag of $869, but if you want something small to bring around and also wireless connectivity, it might be worth checking out.
