The album was recorded by Wes Linenkugel at his home studio in Toledo, Ohio on April 26 & 27, 2000. All of the tunes were played live to a Tascam DA-30 DAT and appear without any cuts, edits, or punch-ins.
The mic used was an Audio-Technica 4050 set about one foot from the head. A minimum of “presence” was added, but no other effects in order to maintain a natural sound. The same set-up was used for recording all four banjos.
