A lot of people really love this mic on the kick drum, but against my Beta 52, I don't have as much love for it. The mic can sound great, but it needs quite a bit of EQing to get it to sound the way I usually like, and it's much more picky about its placement. Though it has a higher frequency range than the Shure, the natural EQ of the mic doesn't tend to sit as well in a mix for me, and I often have to dial in a little more mid-range to get the "click" to sound more full and less puny.

On a bass cab, however, I absolutely LOVE this mic. Not sure what it is about this thing, but it just sounds fantastic on bass amps. It's not often that I'm micing bass amps, but when I do, the D112 is always the mic I try first; on very rare occasion do I ever even try a different mic. The D112 just works on bass.
