Have you looked at Pressure Zone Microphones? (PZM) (aka "boundry mic")

I was told many many years ago that Rat Shack hold the patent on them - but
don't let that put you off - they are great devices.

talks about how to make one

Will tell you how to balance a Rat Shack branded one

You can place a few at varying distances from the drum kit or guitar and
record them all seperately, then mix down the most satisfying sound.

Consider placements in harmonic and non-harmonics wavelength differences
from the sound source.
As the root, consider the root note of the key you are playing in.
