The Avedis Zildjian Company, more commonly known as Zildjian, is an Armenian-American musical instrument manufacturer and the largest cymbal making company in the world. Founded in 1623 by Avedis Zildjian in Constantinople, Zildjian have been setting the world standard of cymbals for centuries.
Avedis stumbled across the Zildjian alloy in 1618 while working on a formula for the creation of gold. This secret alloy has been at the core of their world class cymbal making ever since. 15 people work together to make every single Zildjian alloy cymbal, while specific ranges are pored over and handcrafted using an intense 14-step process. Each cymbal is then sonically tested by a team of experts (with a combined experience of nearly 100 years) to ensure that they meet the high standards you’ve now come to expect from Zildjian products.
K Custom cymbals are based on the darker, dryer sounds of the legendary Zildjian K line, but have been customised with unique finishes, tonal modifications, and manufacturing techniques. The combination of K hammering and a variety of modern hammering techniques have made K Custom one of Zildjian's most popular lines and the choice of artists from a wide range of genres.
