^Does it muffle the distortion?
Or can I still get a really heavy and trebly bite out of it?

usually comp pedals do a good job of evening volume of notes and uncreasing sustain

I used to have trouble with sustain on my seymour duncan dimebucker. I switched to bill lawrence 500xl 's and it solved my sustain and tone problems. best pickups ever!

get a compressor pedal, the big muff will make you're treble range run thick and slightly muffled, thats not what you want.

All I've ever needed for decent sustain is a properly set up guitar, a decent amp and proper EQ'ing...the spider's not a great amp but there's no reason you can't get decent sustain from it. You won't get the endless sustain that you associate with controlled feedback from tube amps but there should be enough, if there isn't then a pedal isn't going to help, you need to look at learning how to use the equipment you already have properly.

dude a ibanez tube screamer works wonders else use the regular compressor. i got a tubescreamer on for all my solos i like the extra bite it adds as well

A compression pedal for nice clean sustain, or even on the OD channel. I'll combine my Big Muff with the Dyna Comp and it'll sustain for days

Things that eat sustain...

Old strings
Action that's too low
Pickups too close to the strings
Over-zealous noise gates
Too much digital stuff in your signal chain (RP70+Spider = )
Poor technique
Not enough volume (not gain)
Lack of string tension (low gauge in too low a tuning)
Dodgy EQ'ing ie not enough midrange

^I know the RP70 plus the spider shouldn't be done, but the spider's stock tone sucks....bad.....so anything I can do to use it to my advantage?

He just said everything not to do, so get new strings and setup your guitar right with lots of mids and a little more volume. There should be a setting on the RP70 for a comp, but it won't sound to sexy.

Just got new strings, and I don't know how to set up a Floyd Rose, so I'll get that done.
