This is what I like to use on drums

Kick- 421 inside AT4047 on the outside

Snare- Beyer 201 with an old SM98 taped to it. The beta98 won't sound right so try and find an old SM98

Toms- CAD M179's or ATM25's

Overheads- My favorites are Violet Designs Amethyst Vintage but on the cheap would be ATM450's

Hat and Ride- Violet Design Black Fingers

Room Mics- any pair of cheap ribbons will do.

So you're checkin' my theory, Vahevahe..... always thought the 4047 might be great on a bassdrum since it uses a lot of tricks of the old Neumann 47/67 Models (e.g. the FET-circuit). How's your impression?

For Toms I use the 421 or 521 models of Sennheiser - they still are a blast if you have the space to mount them.

On the Snare I use a Violet "Dolly" for the top. It really gets it all (unfortunately often catches a hit too).

I love the at4047. It's great in bass cabinets as well. I use to use 421s but I find the bleed to be trashy. The atm25 and cad m179
have less bleed and it's smoother and more musical. The violet globe vintage is great in bass cab and bass drum as well.
