Right now i have an Epiphone SG G-400, an RP-80 effecs pedal,and my dad and i play through a Crate mixer and about 4 speakers....(2 12in..and 2 15in..).. so what do you guys suggest? (new amp, pedal, pickups, ect.)........

Make sure your pickups aren't too close as their magnetic field can affect your sustain.
Do you use a BR-600?

You can get a compressor, but I think a new amp would be better

More volume, plain and simple.

If there's one thing I've learned playing in a stoner rock band, it's that volume = sustain. Gain definitely helps, but there's nothing like plugging a guitar into a blazingly loud amp and holding a note for 30 seconds. There's just no substitute for feedback.

the weight of your guitar affects it, there there things which you can buyto clip onto your head stoch which act as a weight hich creates more sustain, the name f wich i forget, reelia ll you need ita compressor pedal

You might be able to thicken your sound and add a little sustain by turning on a little delay on your RP80. Compressor/higher gain are also your best options.

Up.

I have an RP-50 (same w/o pedal), but I hardly use the compressor on it.
