I'm more on the move the mic side of things but that's not to say I don't crank EQs around but I use them less extreme because not all my engineering philosophy takes place in the control room, get you source as close to what you want as you possibly can and then EQ... A typical rock kick and snare for me would be through a Neve 1081 or API channel with the EQ set to boost top, carve out middle, boost bottom, and then often into another more fine tunable EQ to shape it even further in a more subtle way or especially in the midrange dial back a frequency that I couldn't grab on the Neve or API
