Right!

The wife was working on the west coast for 6 months so I could have stuff everywhere :) and play as loud as I wanted. So nice. Hoping we get this place sold this weekend and the offer in on the new place.

Maybe this will make you feel better, or maybe worse. :D

OK, its a bit complex, but here goes,
Left rack -
1. Sound Sculpture Switchblade Gl. ( matrix routing loop switcher and line mixer)
2. Mesa Studio Preamp.
3. Engl E580 Preamp.
4. ADA MP1 Preamp (3 tube mod)
5. Randall RM4 Preamp (input bias mod)
6. Mesa TriAxis Preamp
7. Mesa Two-Nintey Poweramp.
8. Peavey Rock Master Preamp.
Right rack
1. Furman Power Conditioner.
2. KHE Electronics 8x4 Amp and Cab switcher.
3. Pedal Drawer
4. Pedal Drawer
5. Samson Patch Bay.
6. Fryette Power Station
7. Randall RT2/50 Poweramp.
8. Two Notes Torpedo Reload ( Only being used for replay function, I will sell it soon)

On top of the racks.
1. Synergy Syn 1
2. Peavey 6505+ (modded with a 2nd master volume post effects return for use with preamps and bias modded.)
3. Universal Audio Ox Amp Top Box.
4. EBS Reidmar Bass Amp

And on top of the cab is of course a Marshall JCM 800 2210. ( modded with a second master volume post effects return for use with preamps, and also modded with a resonance control)
On the floor is a Fractal Audio FX8.

This rig is designed for re-amping.
All preamps, the Fractal FX8 , and 3 loop's on the patchbay are connected to the Switchblade GL.
All Poweramp and Amp heads and Loadboxes are connected to the KHE Amp/Cab switcher.
All pedals and the Powerstation's effects loop are connected to the patchbay.

This allows me to route pretty much anything to anything in any order. I can very quickly audition different Preamps with different Poweramp and also different Cabs and Mic's through the Ox.
It was a nightmares to set up but it runs flawlessly now and sounds killer.

How does the Mesa 395 sound? I've been on the hunt for one but no luck so far.

The 395 is my third favorite power section to be honest, the Jet City/Soldano design has the advantage of a full tone stack after the insert return, which makes the RM4 and modules really shine. The Sound City is loaded with vintage Mullard EL34s and has that massive Partridge output transformer, but is bass shy when going into the effects input, needs a beefy sounding 4x12 to balance all the midrange push. The 395 is more balanced sounding but less exciting.
