Which mics in this Sakamoto live piano set?

Could you help me identifying the piano mics used in this recent Sakamoto live-stream?
I really like the sound...

Around the Piano

The big blue ones look like ELAM 251.
The far ones from the piano that look like earthworks. They have many models that look like that.
The overhead LDC,s I'm not sure but the bit of red on black implies Audio Technica.

Could be over $30,000K in mic's

Over the piano are Sennheiser MKH800 Twin.

I don't think the big ones are Elam 251 because it's not the Telefunken logo.
The telefunken logo looks like the Neumann one, a diamond. This one is a square (9'24'')
The 251 has also a switch to select the figure, I don't see any switch on this one.
Maybe a clone of something, hard to say...

Sound is muted and with treble rolled off.

I am wary of the various confusing pickup positions pictured in this video. Some of the mic positions taken together compete with each other and don't make sense.

It sounds like very few mics were used for the recording in the video. The rest of the mics offered alternative pick up positions in case the engineer and producer wanted to compare and contrast the various mic pick ups.
