NAMM 2013: Burriss Amps Introduces New “Royalty” – The Royal Bluesman v2

Burriss Amps is pleased to introduce a new version of its popular Royal Bluesman amp head – the Royal Bluesman v2. Introduced in 2008, the Royal Bluesman quickly became the company’s most popular amp. “The Royal Bluesman has been doing very well but it was time to make some refinements to increase the amps already unparalleled versatility; I couldn’t be more proud of the results,” says amp designer and builder Bob Burriss.

The Royal Bluesman was an early entrant into an emerging area of small, powerful amps but, as Hall of Famer John Sebastian says, “don’t call it a lunchbox.” The hand-wired, all tube, 18 watt, Royal Bluesman v2 maintains all the quality; tone and power of the original but brings a more aggressive gain that retains a nice clean character based on touch response.

“One of the trademark features of the Royal Bluesman is the on-board Tremolo, which has been stretched to deliver more selectivity in the lower settings while the minimum tempo has been reduced to provide an even cooler vibe in the lower settings as well. A more versatile Master Volume dials in some juicy overdrive tones,” added Mr. Burriss.

The Royal Bluesman v2 delivers every nuance that made the original a star from the living room to Carnegie Hall but with some tasty refinements that come with age. See, hear and play the all-new Royal Bluesman v2 at winter NAMM booth #5899.

Burriss Amps and Effects Pedals also offer the popular Dirty Red head; the DC Cab and Tone Classic 112 cabinets; the Boostiest 2.5 effect pedal; and, the Chaloopa single-loop pedal. For more information about Burriss Amps, please visit them at, or by calling 866-997-4546 or 859-381-0152
