I use both for many years. They're just regular mics that can be substituted with many others ..and mostly good because they are dynamic mics.

If Ringo did in fact use them, and they didn't change mics out for the photos, which would take a minute of the second-engineers time, then I guess what they'd shine on is bass and overhead. Crank up Beatles Revolver, it is SO good.

The D12 is good for bass cab or bass drum. And if you like it on bass drum, you can leave it permanently set up and be able to jump on the kit and hit record at any moment. I love that.

As for D19 .. think of it as a lesser beautiful R15 that it can do anything, acoustic guitar, vocal, or on any drum, etc.
