Jim Scott Kit 1
One of L.A.'s most respected producers, engineers and mixers — and one of the busiest — Jim Scott has built his rep off of crisp, live-off-the-floor sounds and attendant good vibes. Scott picked up his first Grammy in 1995 for engineering Tom Petty's Wildflowers, scoring two more for his work with Santana on Supernatural and the Foo Fighters' One By One. In 2007, he doubled his Grammy total, scoring a hat trick for his recording of the Dixie Chicks milestone Taking the Long Way (Bud Scoppa, Mix Magazine July 2007).
Kit 1 is one of Jim's own personal Ludwig drum kits and was recorded at Jim's own PLYRZ Studios through his Neve 8048 console.
Jim Scott Brush Kit
Recorded by Jim Scott, the Brush Kit is one of Jim's own personal Ludwig drum kits and was recorded at Jim's own PLYRZ Studios through his Neve 8048 console. The Brush Kit includes long and short brush sweeps as well as a cowbell.

Microphones used included Telefunken ELA M 251's on the Overheads and the Floor Toms, AKG C12A's on the Rack Toms & Neumann M49's on the Stereo Room.
