RE: Tube Preamp Vibration Control Suggestions?

I'm a big fan of vibe control, but it can be hot or miss. Many/most footers and such have a tendency to change the tone and/or perspective. Weather or not you like it will depend. Herbie's tube dampers? They work well. That said, they can either bring you closer to the music or they can suck the life out of it. sometimes, a little microphonics can be a good thing. I've never had good luck with footers, personally preferring platforms of various types, but they aren't cheap. If you don't mind DIY, do a search here for "sandbox". Cheap and effective.
