eqing the high end on electronic/ pop

What are some of you guys skills on mixing the top end of the mix. How do u mix a keyboard clap or 808 hi hat? Where are u hi passing and low passing. my mixes always seem to be to bright on top and i never boost on anything but vocals. highs hats always seem to bright. claps and snares are always to bright, I need some pointers on gettting my high instrumnets right. I cant imagine boosting highs like people say for brightness. I guess they are talking about real drum recordings that sound kind of flat from the beginning.

For instance a shaker Ill cut below like 1k dip around 5 to 10 k to get rid of harshess and lowpass everything above maybe 12 to 13k
I do about the same for high hats.
snares i cut around 1 to 3 k to get rid of harshness and lowpass above 10 k
keyboard sounds like pianos or rhodes I cut everything off the top thats not heard.

kiks i cut above 5 to 6 k.............

this is kind of how IM working.

Any Ideas
