John Driskell Hopkins, a founding member of the Zac Brown Band, recently included a Radial Powerhouse 500 series chassis in his updated version of Brighter Shade Studios.

The chassis is loaded with 10 Radial modules.

“They were used during the recording of our most recent ZBB album, entitled Welcome Home,” says Hopkins. “The guys in Nashville couldn’t say enough good things about the Powerhouse, the preamps and working with Radial in general. I was sold immediately.”

The Powerhouse’s ten slots are fully loaded with duplicate Jensen Twin-Servos, Power Pres, Power Tubes, JDV Pres as well as EXTCs (reamping guitar effects interface).

“We used these all over the Christmas album, and I have really been enjoying how they sound on my room mics with the drum tracks we have been cutting for the new Americana records we are doing,” he adds.
