A talk about tube gear


I am wondering how good you are familiar with preamp tubes. I don't do guitars and bass amps, but love the line-level based pro dynamic processors. I am talking about the Vari-Mu units, or any proper tube compressor/limiter/EQ/. Loving the Russian tubes, they have insane specs, and sound very nice, linear IMO.

I now have the Drawmer 1968mk2 and it's decent. Gives this smooth'ness on groups or mixbus. I once had the HCL Vari-Mu and that one made me an addict for good tube compressors.

What is your attitude against these tube products? Let aside the guitar/bass amps. What do you recommend how to set-up such units in practice? Any general sayings, words of wisdom, or good practical guidance?
