Nice thread.

For me, the combo of mic/pre/and (sometimes) compressor has a spatial and tonal stamp that I try very hard to remember, so that I can apply that combination where I want it.

I also find that I like to have many oddball mics rather than multiple "standard" ones. One favorite is the AKG D224 - unique, midrangy, spacially small, but very clear.

Between making these selections and mic placement I find that the use of eq and whatnot is pretty rare.

I'd love to hear some more responses on this topic...
