Concert Band Positioning Spot Mics

like your setup for front/mains and rear pickup with cardioids. i'd use the d12 on the bass drum, revox m3500=beyer m201 on glockenspiel, mk41 for percussion/drum and tympany overheads - and use all other spot mics on the most important soloists/on softer instruments (bass clarinet) and/or euphoniums
