Pretty much any ride marked as "dry" will fit the bill.
Paiste Masters dry and extra rides have a very nice shimmer to them like all Paiste cymbals, and the ping is quite defined, but you might just as well go with, say, a K custom special dry, a Byzance dry ride...
If you want some more tail/wash and a longer decay then there's the Paiste Masters dark crisp ride, the Signature Dark Energy ride mkI, the regular K custom ride and medium ride...

Or you could just find a ride you like and up some tape on the bottom, that'll dry it up very effectively while still maintaining its character.
