    I want to buy an amp, my budget is around 9k. I need good distortion particularly, I have shortlisted the following.

    1. Marshal MG15 CFX
    2. Peavey Vypyr 15
    3. Laney Prism 20

    Which among these are the best?

    I have a Schecter Damien 6 Guitar.

    Peavey Vypyr 15 if you want it for a long time.
    If not, buy a simple amplifier and buy a good dist. pedal.

    for 9k
    u can get the Peavy Vypr or Line 6 spider IV which are good for metal
    or You can get the Roland Cube 15 for a lot less with great cleans and distortion and okay metal tone
    or You can get the Fender Mustang I and get a truck load of features with it....

    I would have chosen this......A little over your budget but built like a tank and has really sweet sounding distortion......can get into Hard Rock Territory easily.....and with the help of a pedal can get into Metal easily too....

    Here are a few demo's I did where this amp was used....

    Blackheart Little Giant Demo - YouTube

    Epiphone Les Paul Standard Demo - YouTube

    Guitar Overdrive (Gainier) Pedal - Handmade by Arya Pedals - YouTube

    Green Screamer High Gain Demo - YouTube

    Hope this helps......

    isn't it just the cab? amp head would cost even more...

    Its the combo, no need for a separate cab, and the speaker in it is an Eminence.....Which is a win........and it is 12" - Another win......

    Overall a freaking awesome deal for the price.....

    I bought the head as I had a cab that i made for myself.....for those who don't and in a budget, the combo is great.....

    That is the cab... The BH5 112 costs a lot more...

    SHIT.......My bad..........However for a little less than the OP's budget he could get some really nice amps, HT-1 combo for example is a good amp, for about 14k or so

    Dood! Another Pathfinder user here and I'm thinking of picking up a Bad Monkey. Would really appreciate any sound clips / demos.
    You went in for the 15R?
