U47, U87, U47 Marimba overheads - API 3124m
SM69fet in front - CraneSong Flamingo
M149’s (wide card) on the Piano - John McAllister Audio MP2.

All into CraneSong HEDD 192’s.
nice - i've been using a somewhat similar three-front-mic setup on marimba but added either a u47fet or blm3 to pick up the lowest notes (and rear ambis in wide a/b).
