Cymbals company who made the first drum-set cymbals and invented names such as ride, crash, splash, and hi-hat. Artists from early jazz drummers such as Buddy Rich, to drummers of all genres today use their gear. New innovations include an electro-acoustic range and apps. Zildjian was founded in Istanbul in 1623 by an Armenian alchemist who invented new alloys - still a family secret. His descendants moved to the US and started what is now the oldest family-owned business in America.
