From its beginnings in 17th-century Turkey to its position today as the top name in cymbals for drummers and percussionists playing every type of music in every corner of the word, the Zildjian company has traveled a unique path. The journey started with the founder, Avedis Zildjian, an Armenian alchemist whose quest to create gold by combining base metals resulted in an alloy of copper, tin, and traces of silver that achieved world renown, thanks to its unique sound qualities. Fourteen generations later, Zildjian is officially recognized as the oldest continually family-owned business in America. The story of Avedis and his legacy is told in Zildjian: A History of the Legendary Cymbal Makers.



Newly updated and filled with never-before-seen photos, memorabilia, and recollections from legendary drummers, this book tells the exciting story of the world's most popular cymbal company. Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa, Max Roach, Ringo Starr, Charlie Watts, Dennis Chambers, and Steve Gadd are among the many great innovators who have crashed, splashed, choked, gonged, and ridden Zildjians to make music history on some of the most ground-breaking recordings of this century. See what these and other stars as well as the Zildjian family today have to say about these premium cymbals and their rich history.
