I'm thinkin Peavy or Marshall but I want to get my bf something special for his guitar. He likes distortion and wah effects, does a bunch of Van Halen-like solos, and he likes it loud. Which amp is best for that??

I can only spend close to $300, so the Van Halen ones are out lol.

Well, if he is an Eddie Van Halen fan, Eddie has his own musical instrument company that makes the exact same amplifier he uses - the EVH 5150 III. It has three channels, plenty of Van Halen-esque distortion, and it is very loud. That amp would probably suit him, although it is a rather expensive amplifier. As for the wah effect, Jim Dunlop makes an EVH wah pedal (the EVH95).

I'm not too sure on what to adivise, but what's the £££ you're limiting yourself to?

I second the EVH 5150 III + EVH wah, if you have the money for that.
