Very different mics...D112 is "scooped" (kind of smile EQ).

D12 doesn't go as low but is more natural sounding.

Indie band? I'd go D12.

Metal? D112.

I'd check out the Heil pr48 before I go hunting for a D12 in decent nick, it'll be a lot cheaper and easier to find.
It's a very natural sounding mic and it'll work great with blues rock.

Or have a go with a Sennheiser 421. Coupled with condenser on the outside that'll give you a great sound.

I have a D12 metal band, what band should I use it on?

D112 always sounds like a basketball on Kicks.
D12 for "more natural/vintage" recordings - agreed!

I've always hated the D112 and like the sound of a D12e much better
