Everly Brothers style

I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on how to get drum sounds in this style.

I've got 2 options for rooms: One is much more open and live, and is roughly 20ft. x 30ft. with 14ft. ceilings, the other is a super dead, small booth.

I've gotten pretty good sounds out of both rooms, and alot of times I prefer the small booth, especially with the way the toms sound.

I'm leaning more towards the live room for this though, with a minimal (maybe 3 mic) set-up in addition to some distant room mics.

Here's my mic options. I have my go-to preferences for rock drums, but for this style, I'm not quite sure.

Beta52
D112
421
SM57 (4)
D6
AT4033 (pair)
MC012 (pair)
SM81 (pair)
PPA ribbons (pair)
PPA Tube mics (pair)

As for preamps, I've got 14 channels of quad eight MM61 modules, so I should be fine in that dept..

Also the drumset is a 70's slingerland with a solid ply wood snare (D.W.)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I'd use ribbon microphones on the overheads. and that's all

the 70's slingerland sounds good to help achieve this sound but I'd look around for a different snare drum. a D.W. snare is just not going to get the desired effect your looking for. most important though, the best way to achieve a vintage sound is to find a drum set from the era ...... I'd like to hear the out come.
