    Need Ride Suggestion

    I am looking for a ride that is very pingy that doesn't have a lot of sustain. I also want it to be a very aggressive cymbal. A ride that is crashable is not really a concern so if anyone can help me out please let me know. I'm open to any suggestion of a semi pro to pro grade cymbal.
