The main asset is the room itself: 35sqm with heights of 4-5m, specifically designed to record drums. Absorbers control the reverb but can be modified in order to capture a more reverberant sound.
A selection of drum mic classics record closely and from far away. 16 channels of class A preamps (8x Api + 8x Millennia) are in use. But what is a good sounding room, top mics and preamps without great Drums? My main go to set is a vintage Ludwig Clubdate from the 60ies, but i also use Gretsch, Tama and an Alto Beat drumset. I mostly stick to my classic Ludwig Snares (Black Beauty, Supraphonic and Acrolite).

All tracks marked with „@Studio PB40“ I recorded myself in my own studio, and you can also listen into the isolated drum track of these songs. On all the other tracks I played in external studios.
