The BluesMachine is an amp that oozes tone and touch responsiveness from a tweed style clean channel that cascades into the overdrive channel. Expanding on the TweedyVerb platform, there is a two-tube reverb and tube buffered effects loop with an active master volume along with the previoulsy mentioned overdrive channel. The BluesMachine has 50 watts of power from a pair of 6L6 tubes, a fixed (50 watts)/cathode (40 watts) switch, and a switch to go from 50 watts to 18 watts.
A touch responsive tweed based amp that is a gigging blues or blues-rocker's dream.

- Tone Stack Bypass - Turn the tone knob all the way counter-clockwise or just step on the Boost footswitch, and remove the whole tone stack from the circuit to get a “guitar-straight-to-master volume” path that is clean and powerful.
- Presence Bypass - Dial in just the right amount of brightness or remove the presence control from circuit.
- Tube Serial Effects Loop – Fully buffered effects loop – adds to the tone even when no external effects are used.
- Two-tube reverb that can be bypassed
