Drum track reverb

Ok, from where do you guys like to send to reverb, you have a reverb on a aux channel, three channels kick, snare, hihat going to a stereo bus, what do you like to do, send from the individual channels or from the stereo bus?

It's easier to determine how much reverb to send from the individual tracks (kick, snare etc), but if I have added some eq on the stereo bus the reverb isn't going to get fed the eq'd signal.. Or should I send from the stereo bus and eq the reverb.

Well it usually sounds ok either way, but I was wondering what you all like to do?

I like to send from the individual tracks. BTW, I don't have an EQ on my close drum mic bus, instead I EQ the individual tracks. The kick drum isn't actually in the close mic bus. Toms, snare and hihat are, though. The snare goes to a different reverb than the rest of the kit. I do EQ and compress the reverb, depending on what I'm doing.

Sometimes I get an Eventide Princeton 2016 on loan, and I don't end up EQing that one much.
