Additional Info & Links
For 375 years, 70 of those years in the United States, the Zildjian family has made cymbals. Avedis Zildjian brought both his company and his family over to Massachusetts in 1929. Perhaps the best known of all Zildians is Armand, Avedis' son, who was very instrumental in developing working relationships with many great jazz and rock drummers like Max Roach, Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa. He also began Zildjian's product line of drumsticks and is still involved in research and development.
