I am not able to see closely enough to tell, but they appear to me to be either Royer 121 mics Royer R-121 Studio | Sweetwater, or RM BIV1 mics RM BIV Ribbon Microphones and YouTube.

They both look quite similar. The Royer mics have the "fins" while the RM BIV1 mics do not. To my eyes, the photo isn't close enough to see if the "fins" are present, or not. Both are excellent mics. The RM BIV1 mics are about $1000 less per mic.

HAS to be 121s. Just found this:

Not only is that shot from Royer's site, that's Alan Meyerson.

Actually R-122. According to Royer it is the R-122V but it looks like a "regular" R-122 (I don't see the "vents" of the V)
