Printing separate tracks through Buss EQ

My question to all practicing mixing engineer and hobbyists: is it a big discrepancy to mix full drum kit through drum buss's EQ or print each part of drum kit (kick, snare, toms, oh, etc.) separately through the this EQ with the same settings and then mix together? This issue is only about EQ and its various behavior in analog (Pultec style EQ, Chandler TG Channels, Neve 73, etc.) or digital domain (PSP, Brainworx stuff, various LP or MP EQs). The mixing environment is constant.

I guess it mainly depends on EQ settings and mic technique... Otherwise I'd rather print the tracks separately cos you might need them when mixing. At least I'm usually not happy with all in one drum takes (except for addon submixes/room mic etc.).

Sounds like too much to me. I would get the EQ right with mic choice and placement, room, and a GOOD drummer (I know, that last one is really hard to find)
