Snare: 57-->API 312
Kick: D112-->API 312
Close Room Mics-->Neumann km184s, but NOT overhead...3 feet in front of the kick, spaced out according to image desire..."ground zero" location where the kick and snare meet. This really tames harsh cymbals, nice overall image of the kit.
Room Boom: Rode K2-->Avalon vt737sp with EQ/slammin comp.

Been using T.Bone SC 140s as drum OHs for a while now: the t.bone SC 140 Stereoset - Thomann UK Cyberstore

Cheap as chips and sound fantastic as OHs IMHO! Much prefer over a pair of AKG 414s which was my previous set up. I sold one of my 414s a while after buying these as not only do I like the sound better as an OH mic, they are lighter and easier to position and don't droop mic stands (although I've now permanently installed the T.Bone mics onto a mic stand bolted to the ceiling).
