We used mono setup for the drums, utilizing only one pencil condenser as the overheads, and mic up the snare and bass drums. Piano were comfortably covered by dense fabrics and comforters, shielding the sE4400 pair from excessive leakage of sound. Bass was direct in to the Chandler TGII and Portico 5043 compression.
We had a pair of RT1s ribbon tube for the room as well, which then being used widely during the mix for its natural and warm character.
