I was looking for a decent practice amp that sounds good with distortion pedals. Budget is around 400. Thanks

For "around" $400 I'd start with a Blues Junior and work down from there depending on what you play.
Dean Icon PZ
Line 6 Variax 700
Dean V-Wing
Dean ML 79 SilverBurst
MXR M 108
H2O Chorus/Echo
Valve Junior (V3 Head/Cab and Combo)
VHT Special 6
Phonic 620 Power Pod PA
Wampler Super Plextortion
Line 6 Pod HD

anything with a clean channel will work if you mostly want to sound like the pedal. there really is no point to choosing one good amp over another if your not going to use the dirty channel of the amp. but on the other hand, you may want to find something in the $400 range that has a dirty channel you like. then you can forget about the distortion pedal completely. if your using a boss DS-1, that thing has got to go. even if you like it right now, trust me on this. my favorite cheap practice amp with distortion is the orange crush 30R. but if you have $400 - $450 try getting used mesa boogie caliber .22 (the DC-2) on ebay or craigslist. its a tube practice amp that works great with pedals, great reverb, independent controls for each channel, super powerfull interactive EQ. you'll be happy you did.

You're not truly playing guitar unless you know theory.
