Soundelux e49?

I'll be recording an album in a largish (45X30ft) wooden and tile room. Chamber music: Piano, Flutes, Clarinets, Tabla, Electronics. The space has a very nice monitoring situation in the control room—looking forward to showing up to a tuned acoustic for monitoring! The space has plenty of excellent gear—most of it tube, very colored, a lot of Chandler stuff. I will still bring all my usual preamps and mics because I want to use what I am comfortable with, since I wont have tons of time to audition. But, and here is my question, I am curious about the possible uses of a pair of Soundelux e49? I was thinking of using them as ambiance mics, but tell me what you like a tube mic for on contemporary classical music.

My main setup will likely include Schoeps CMC6 (Rens Mod) with Mk2 or 21 and Pueblo Mic amps. Several AEA mics and Senn MKH as well. Do these Soundelux fit into this party?

There is also an ELAM 251 and a few other heavy swingers I am not used to having around.

I got two direct messages saying the same thing. These mics are too dark for this application.
