Miles Davis 1969 Newport Jazz festival microphones

Hello everybody, I was listening to the audio recordings from Miles Davis 1969 Newport Jazz festival and wondering about what microphones were used to record the band, especially the drums microphones. It seems from the web pictures that only two microphones where used in the drums, one in fron of the kick and one more above the kick below ride (an Omni mic? and maybe schoeps or neumann?) Sorry for my english, greetings from Argentina.

Lives for gear
First guess is MD211
A fantastic omni dynamic mic.
The only downfall of that mic is if it's dropped, it can break.
