Michael Tretow got some great drum sounds in the early 70's with ABBA. I know he was a big fan of having a 176N over the kit and bass, then mixing that in with the dry signals. I'76 reminds me a lot of that sound.

Great work.
There were quite a lot of different setups used on that. roughly half the songs were recorded out in a large-ish room with some gobos around the kit and the other half was recorded in a booth. I think if I had a chance to listen to the recordings again some of the detail about the setups would come back to me. I'll try to post some more stuff when I've had a chance to do that.
