I've seen pictures of them in pale blue and yellow, yellow and pale blue and dark blue and red. Anyone know which uniform would be correct?

As a best guess I would say that they wore the same uniforms as the rest of the regiment (place blue with yellow facings) but with red-and-white lace edging the cuffs, collar and lapels.

The use of red-and-white lace to distinguish drummers was also used in the line and light regiments.
