To add to the current discussion, I've found that changing tubes in my JCA20h made a big difference. The swap gave new life to the low end, and removed the brittle highs.

Rock/Fusion Improv video. (C4C)

Here's an improv solo over a backing track I thought was pretty fun. Reminds me of something along the lines of the Aristocrats or Chad Smith's Bombastic Meatbats.
