For something like drums you might put a limiter on the drum reverb bus as well, to heavily smooth out the signal going to the reverb.
Though you might still want to put an EQ after the reverb, because it does create new frequency content beyond what's going in.
Exactly what i'm talking about. Lately, I've been using a stereo reverb on a send, followed by a mono plate reverb for vocals. I've also compressed with a Fairchild and added EQ after that!! All on a send. Totally not the same as just EQ'ing a vocal and just sending that signal to a send that only has one plug-in reverb by itself on the insert.
