Zakk Wylde’s Brand New Home Studio Features dbx ® Compressors – New Black Label Society Album Due Out This Summer

Professional technical A/V consultant Under the Wire, recently completed construction on the home studio of guitar legend Zakk Wylde, installing a multitude of dbx® equipment to help Zakk and his band, Black Label Society record their new album, which is set to be released the summer of 2010.

Featured in the installation is a dbx 160SL Compressor, four dbx 160A Compressors, a dbx 386 Dual Channel Tube Mic Pre and a dbx Tube Channel Strip. “We were specifically looking for the dbx sound,? said Zack Fagan, sound engineer and founder of Under the Wire. “The dbx 160A and SL both have a very unique sound that no studio in complete without.?

Black Label Society’s FOH man, Dave Allen and Fagan have been friends for numerous years before the two met again at Wylde’s new studio. Allen put Fagan in touch with Jeff Harris of dbx when BLS was looking for a total sound turnaround. “Jeff came on board and provided us with great advice for the studio, recommending all of the equipment that would give BLS the ultimate sound for their new record,? continued Fagan.

At the project’s completion, the eager team patiently waited to hear their recordings through the latest dbx equipment. Fagan continued, “The only issue we had with hooking up the new equipment was doing it as fast as we could to start using it.? The team couldn’t be happier with the results as the entire renovation plan went flawlessly, with no problems stemming from either the gear or installation. “The entire process from start to finish went so smoothly and quickly that the soldering iron was still hot when I ran into the studio to start working on the new album,? stated Wylde.

In the two decades since Ozzy Osbourne hired him away from his job at a New Jersey gas station to become his new guitarist, Zakk Wylde has established himself as a guitar icon known and revered the world over. Writing and recording with Osbourne led to multi-platinum success, inspiring him to create the now legendary Black Label Society in 1998. In the decade plus since, BLS has turned the notion of what a rock band should be upside down by inspiring legions of fans (known as Berserkers) all over the world to follow the mantra: Strength, Determination, Merciless, Forever (SDMF for short). Wylde and his Berserkers have established a heavy metal institution true to the vision of uncompromising, unfiltered and unrestrained rock n’ roll.
