Very faithful to the originals.

You can experiment with these samples I've attached. These are pre-amplified to as loud as possible without clipping and resampled to 33144hz (approximately the NES DPCM channel's sample rate; the FT DPCM editor doesn't seem to be good at resampling from other rates, so using 33144hz .wavs from the start is one way to ensure OK-quality samples). I haven't got a lower-pitched OPNA tom sample, though, but I find pitching a second instance of the sample in the DPCM editor to 14 works well as an alternative.

I'm not sure, but it seems like the OPNA does not play back its drum samples with perfect quality (proof: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=318PT1GomIY), so I tried putting them into the track and it doesn't sound good.

Hertz used PMD98 for that cover, which is the same driver that ZUN himself used for th2-5. PMD auto-overlays the OPNA Rhythm channels with SSG percussion sounds, which is what causes the drums to sound "without perfect quality" in that YouTube video. The original version of Highly Responsive to Prayers uses a different driver and does not overlay SSG drums on the Rhythm drums, using the Rhythm channels alone (as heard properly in the video linked in your original post). Because your cover is based on the Magic Mirror variations from said original version of HRtP, I uploaded vanilla OPNA rhythm drum sounds.

Your updated .ftm does still sound better than your first, though, and I do agree that the Rhythm channel drums with SSG overlaying them do generally sound better than just the Rhythm drums alone.
