Jim Pavett
Jim holds a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and is an experienced educator and clinician. He understands the dynamics between the music and the recording equipment. Throughout his career, he has served as a panelist for the PotLuck / TapeOp Recording Conventions, written for and featured in national audio magazines including Mix, Pro Sound News and Pro Audio Review, and has created audio samples and beta-tested new products for several pro-audio manufacturers.

One of his recording projects was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2007, and in 2010, he recorded and mixed Jack Gladstone’s Native Anthropology, which won Gladstone the Historic Recording Artist of the Year. He created and produces the The Studio Edge Pro Audio Recording Series, which allows Jim to give back to the world by providing education. He has added TV personality to his credentials by regularly appearing as a judge on the CBS show, Lucky Break.

Jim has had the privilege of recording Alisha Keys, Doyle Bramhall, Marty Friedman (Megadeth), Barry Sparks (Yngwie Malmsteen, Dokken, Ted Nugent), Boyz II Men, Cyndi Lauper, Jack Gladstone, Thomas Jane (Punisher, HBO Hung), Vera Farmiga (Source Code), George Clooney, and Patrick Stump (Fall Out Boy).

Jim is equally as talented behind a drum kit. Listeners and audiences are treated to his unique “theater of percussion” during live shows and on recordings. Over the years, Jim has played and recorded with many groups including Warp 3, Barry Sparks (Michael Schenker and Yngwie Malmsteen), JV Collier ( Bruce Hornsby, Pointer Sisters, Motown Records), and Tony Kishman (Wishbone Ash, Beatlemania) Betty Stress, Grimble Wedge, Rich Hopkins & the Luminarios, to name a few.
