Mic choices 76-77

Hey folks,
I was hoping someone could shed some light on the mics that the crew were using on amps drums and voice in the post wall of sound 70’s. I know bear pretty exclusively used Electro-voice RE15s, and the WOS is a whole other beast, but I just love the drum sounds in 76-77 so any info would be appreciated.
Thanks!
Matt

Looks like Sennheiser MD421s on the vocals. I think I've seen shots of them on the drums too from this era, though didn't find any good ones while looking just now.

Looks like Sennheiser MD441s (or even longer?). New Haven 5/5/77

I think we should have a PA and recording sub-forum here!
