Favorite "Go To" pieces for certain instruments

Hey Jay!

I'm quite curious as to if you have any favorite "Go to" pieces of gear (Eqs, compressors, other) that you gravitate towards first on certain instruments.

example:
Any certain compressors or EQs (or other favorites) that you tend to reach for first on Bass guitars, guitars, vox, drums, etc?

The first thing I do is listen with no processing, then determine which piece of gear I'll go to. For bass, it's usually a Fairchild or DBX 160. I really like 1176's. They work great on guitars and drums. Fairchild or LA-2A on vocals. I have an API Lunchbox with 2 512b mic pre's and 2 560 EQ. The 560's work well on almost everything.
