What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

Beautiful warm tone.

Love the trem and reverb which can be used separately from the amp as an effects unit !!!

One of my favorite sounding small amps.

Comes with a Toolbox Case!

Manufacturer's Description from Other

Quality, Versatility and sweet tones have always been the hallmark of the Burriss Design philosophy and the Royal Bluesman is no exception. Despite it's ultra portable stature the Royal bluesman is really 2 high quality audio devices in one.

It's primary design intention is a warm and expressive tube-type guitar amp with on-board spring reverb and tremolo features unheard of on an amp of this size. By moving the power switch down to the "FX" mode the Royal Bluesman takes on a whole new identity.

In the FX mode the Royal Bluesman can be unloaded from the speaker so that it can be used as a stand-alone reverb tremolo unit into another amp or mixing console. The features dont stop there, also included is a series effects loop complete with send and return level controls which allows the return to be used as a quasi 2nd channel.

Burrriss was first to the market with a handy pedal board power supply built right into the amp which supplies 9vd@1A to your pedal board via the footswitch cable. The included VIB+ footswitch has a 2.1mm power outlet jack that allows guitarists to daisy chain out of the VIB+ to power most any standard 9V effect pedal.
