Value For Money : Excellent
The Fender Eighty-Five is a 85 watt amp transistors dlivrant.
A 12-inch HP for Fender spring reverb and a bowl easily accessible.

The space is minimal, and finishing average.
Two inputs, whose use can be simultaneous, but just to jam.

There on the front two channels that share the rglages gnraux mm.

In order: acute middle treble, adjusting the reverb, and the Overdrive channel: gain, an Limiting rglage that compresses the sound and a presence knob of a switch + Mid boost.

the exit sign offers an effects loop and headphone jack of the footswitch +.

UTILIZATION

Easy to use, Eighty-five to RULES easily and quickly obtained a DSIR within the capabilities of the amp.
The 85 watts are just good to repeat and small volume MODR scnes.

SOUNDS

This amp is Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Perfection and horror combined.

The clean sound is amazing. Rgl a little cold neutral (of course ... these are not lights) but with a little low it really gets a beautiful sound. Ditto for the reverb, smooth and progressive rglage.
It's really the main strength of this amp (Fender forces) clear sound worthy of a high-end amp. HP does not saturate even if you play full ball, rgl max.

Saturation is a horror worthy of a 10 watt Frontman. Crunches are the shrines, but they Exceeds ds couple on the gain, we plunge into an abyss of sounds dirty and ugly.
Surprising as it may seem, is yet paid donf it gives the best. Grungy guys, you will like it.

Basically, go your way when playing anything but jazz, blues and pop.

BUT!

The slightest distortion pedals to put you in the hand of a good quality amp trs!

OVERALL OPINION

Bought two years ago, this amp makes me happy because I gave him a good assistant distortion. I had bought as a first amp for playing the era flok and blues-rock.
The clear sound MRIT a visit. Type Fender but REALLY beautiful.
Found for 2500 francs OCCAZ the ratio quality price is excellent given the quality of its light, and power. A box of blues.

Today I think I would do the same no choice because I use my guitar only in home studio, not in groups. My choice would focus on a smaller amp power tubes but trs typ big sound, because I have put together a game mtal rather than post-rock and blues.
