From EpiK DrumS - A Ken Scott Collection the 70s EJ Kit is a single head vintage concert tom kit recorded in the style of classic Elton John records, many of which Ken Scott recorded and produced. A kit similar in sound to the one Nigel Olsson played with Elton in the 70s was recorded with the same microphones and recording techniques Ken used on the original albums. A beautiful retro sound with a punchy large sized kit with unique tone due to the single head tom sound. This is a must-have for anyone looking for classic authentic vintage drum sounds.
