All Cab Packs were produced by AustinBuddy along with Matt Gerhard as engineer and assisted in tracking room by Max Lorenzen at Public Hi-Fi Studios owned by Spoon drummer Jim Eno in Austin, Texas. 

The speaker cabs were provided from Austin Vintage Guitars and Public Hi-Fi studio.  Mics used included a R121, M160, SM57, MD421, and U67 through a vintage Neve 1073 preamp channel strip, in an early edition Neve console board.  All IR's (except for Bass) were captured "clean" with no additional EQ processing added.

A special thank you to Austin Vintage Guitars for making this possible!
