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.

Zildjian K cymbals are known for their dark, warm sounds that harken back to the original K cymbals developed by Zildjian in 19th Century Turkey.  Instantly recognisable by their "vented K" logo, K cymbals capture the aura of the original K's but with far greater consistency, making them the choice of drummers from genres as diverse as Jazz, Country, and Rock. Clarity and brilliant projection are present in each of the ranges hi-hats, crashes and rides. The rides ping and shimmer, while the crashes dark tones resist becoming muddied. The hats are precise and sensitive, with a wash that isn’t overstated.
