Yamaha THR100 played by Nick Johnston

Nick Johnston’s guitar playing is simultaneously acrobatic and delicate. His pick attack and use of the guitar’s volume control bring for bringing out an amplifier’s dynamics, and that’s exactly why we asked him to test out the Yamaha THR100 level of heads and cabs. Both the THR100HD and THR100H and their respective cabinets were mic’ed up with Shure SM57s.
