Pedals won't help.

The sound you want is best achieved from a nice tube amp.
I guess you'd better put some money away for later.

But, the bandit should be able to get some form of similar sound IIRC.

The smooth harmonic sound can only be achieved via a tube amp [yes, there are exceptions].

o right
well any way i can simulate a tube smooth distortion sound?

Buy a tube amp and an OD pedal.

Also transtube isn't emulating tube sound. "Trans is a Latin noun or prefix, meaning "across", "beyond" or "on the opposite side"." So transtube is just a fancy name for solid state.
My Gear:
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Peavey Vypyr 30
DW Collector's 3 pc drums
Mapex Black panther snare
Sabian AAX/Zildjian K cymbals.

An EQ pedal makes a Peavey Bandit sound like a whole new amp, best investment you can make by far.
Actually called Mark!

I used to have a Peavey Bandit 112.

Then I sold it for a Peavey Classic 30. The Bandit doesn't even sound that similar to the Classic in terms of overdrive. Transtube technology is just a marketing gimmick. That being said, the Bandit does have really good cleans for a solid, but you're looking for tube distortion. There is no substitute for it, and you can look all you want for a pedal that will do it, but at the end of the day you'll either come up empty handed or with a modelling pedal/amp that only does it half way.

Just save up for a tube amp. They're expensive, but there really isn't another way. Go used, or buy an Epi Valve Junior or something.
