How did you record it, is it only two tracks or multitrack? It's not very easy
to come up with a good answer for you here. :-) It's not very much meaning to
suggest adjustmens as the mix sounds like now. A new raw mix please! :-)

If possible, you should record the drums one more time. You write that you use
the recorderman technnique, wich surprises me a little bit because the kick is
so week and sounds more like a tom - I expected more body and room. The HH
sound is also a little strange because the sticks' sounds are very dominating.
Maybe you should consider to use just one mic and do some experimenting: Go
mono on drums and try just one condenser mic right above the kick and listen
how the kit sounds sounds. You might very well get a well balanced drum sound
that way. That might just do the trick. Experienced engineers do very often
adjust the placement before it sounds as good as possible. On the other hand:
I like the drums ringing body and that might disapear if you do any changes.

Do a little more accurate raw mix first that we (or at least my tinitus
infected ears) can listen to again, then it will be slightly easier to come
with a little more meaningful suggestions. :-)
