THE GOLD STANDARD

When it comes to making cymbals, we are referred to as the “Gold Standard”. This is ironic because, in 1618, alchemist Avedis Zildjian was trying to make gold. Instead, he accidentally formulated what's arguably the best cymbal material on the planet. Today at Zildjian, we still use that same secret alloy in every cast cymbal we craft. Avedis’ spirit of experimentation and discovery lives on in our factory; it continually drives us each day to create the highest quality instruments we can, so you can continually create, experiment, and discover your own sound.
 

ZILDJIAN LITERALLY MEANS
"CYMBAL MAKER"

In 1623, the Sultan granted Avedis the family name "Zildjian," which literally means "cymbal smith". After leaving the palace and starting his own foundry, he spent years perfecting his cymbal-making techniques. His process of combining copper, tin, and silver is still a closely guarded family secret, and the casting it produces possesses an extraordinary musical quality and tone. Our skilled craftsmen combine old-world cymbal-making artistry with modern technology, and a dash of cutting-edge innovation to transform Avedis’ alloy into boundless varieties of superior-sounding cymbals for every genre of music.
