Thoughts About Using A Tube Mic And A Tube Preamp/Compressor

Just wondering about this as the title says.

Anyone use both together, or does it end up becoming a sonic nightmare - like it could be a new movie ‘The Clash of The Tubes’ [instead of the Titans].

Or - do you just tame down both gain or output levels to keep things reasonable?

Any thoughts - and/or advice?

Thanks Buds,
