Most rides and hats are quite bright yet not so crystal as I would like, the question is: what frequencies must I touch to make them crystal. I mean like triangles for instance.
This is the sound of the ride that I want to have:

I generally use EQ to boost the frequency ranges that I want and drop the volume on the hi-hat channel to suit.
The key frequencies I use for tweaking hi-hats are:
200 to 300 Hz - This is where the metallic "chink" sound usually is.
6,000 Hz + - This is where hissy "tsss" sound usually is.
To get a more metallic sound, enhance with a mid to narrow band at 200-300 Hz. To get more 'sizzle', enhance with a high-shelf from around 6,000 Hz.
You should use these as approximations and adjust to suit your particular tastes but I hope it serves as a starting point at least.
To make it 'ring' more you'll need to play about with ring modulators and reverbs.
