I have the straight up "Ride" and when I play it by itself, or with just the kit, it does seem have a little of that "clang" someone mentioned. It can also start to build up the wash when laying into it, maybe losing some definition...Is your ride a "Ride" or a "Medium Ride"?
Can you expound on what it is about that ride that you don't love?
No issues at all with it in a live band or recording situation. It sits very well in the mix. The bell, btw, is great IMO...
I say it's not my favorite only because my other rides are a 60's A Medium (2285g), a Hollow Logo Ping (2629g) and an EAK (2423g)...all 20"...one of those three always seem to get chosen over the A Custom - usually the 60's Medium or the K for most things and the Ping on louder rock gigs - but I definitally consider the A Custom a keeper...
