Seems like a pretty versatile setup!
Yup. The B52 is also very popular for micing bass guitar cabinets, and the D112 is my favorite tuba mic (for whatever that's worth). One big usability difference between the two is the B52 is very sensitive to mechanical noise (vibration from floor through stand, etc.), where the D112 has good mechanical isolation.
The more I learn about drums, the better I do my job.
