Default Signal Chains?

When tracking a band, do you more or less have default signal chains that are your "go to" for all instruments (ie pretty much the same mic and pre choices on guitar cabs, always same mics used on drums no matter the artist etc etc) or do you go in and choose your setups different for each and every project?

Thanks!!

I admit to being spoiled with having dozens of Neve 1073 mic/pre EQs for my front-end. Don't need much more than that!!!!
If the sound is thuddy, I lean towards using an Shure SM57 or Sennheiser 421.
If the sound is bright, I'll lean toward a Telefunken U47 mic.
And if it needs compression, the first thing I'll think of will be the Universal Audio 175b.
Of course there are all kinds of variations to this template, but these are my top-drawer tools.
