Why specifically those two amps?

The marshall is a hunk of overpriced junk. I've never played a fender 85, i know Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead has/does play one, but there are much better choices for what you play, which is what Matrixclaw is saying with his suggestion.

The Vyper wil be far more versatile, and get you a decent sound for what you play

What's your budget?
Where are you?
Gigging or only at home?
Willing to buy second hand?

Deluxe 85 red knob? If you only want good clean Fender tone the 85 will do it. Distortion is pretty awful though. The MG is a boat anchor and no more. For $100 you should be able to find a used Vox VT that will sound WAY better than either of those.

^ yeah that's it.

And since we're at it, I think a TW rocket boosted with a klon might do the job pretty well...

Get a Peavey Vypyr, a Roland Cube, a Fender Mustang or a Vox Valvetronix (in that order of preference). Go for used ones if you need to.
I'd advise you to save money for a while if you can't afford one of those right now, they're definitely worth the investment.


If you're 100% set on getting one of the two you mentioned, go for the Fender Eighty-Five. With a nice overdrive/distortion pedal it may get the job done.
Just don't get the Marshall MG, they sound awful.

"Let's make a thread asking what amp to buy, completely disregard everyone's suggestions and get the amp that everyone said not to buy," pretty much sums up this thread. Yep.

Its even worse than that.
He asked about 2 amps, was told neither one but if he must, choose the OTHER ONE.
