at-atm33or at4033 or km184 for overheads

I've got funk RnB type group coming to do a session. I don't normally track drums but will be doing so for this project. I want to pick up either a pair of atm33,s, or a 4033 to go with the one I already own or a Km184 to go with the one I already own. Have not used 4033s or atm33s as overgheads before. Any sugestions would be helpful.

I used to flip between a pair KM184 or AT4033 depending on the drums, player and song.. The KM184's were prefered more times than the 4033's, but the 4033's aren't bad, just a bit different.

The KM184's give a very nice high end of the cymbals with less of the toms/snare and room.. The At4033 are a bit more mid rangey, with more of the drums in the overheads and a bit more room resonance.. So, it kinda depends on how much of the drums you want to hear..

Now, I'm pretty much going with a SF12 for overheads, and if the song or drummer needs more tingle, than I'll use a pair of KM84's....
