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 S Family cymbals are perfect for the intermediate drummer looking to enhance their cymbal setup and explore the world of Bronze alloy cymbals. Crafted from Zildjian's B12 alloy, S Family features the kind of musicality and versatility not normally found in a line of non-cast cymbals. Zildjian's B12 alloy sits between B8 (used for entry-level cymbals) and B20 (which is used for the majority of Zildjian’s other cymbal products). While not featuring as wide of a frequency response as B20, B12 excels with its balance instead. It has spawned a range which is bold, dynamic and versatile.

The S Family range offers huge assortment of cymbal sizes, weights and FX options allow you to curate a sound that's exactly you. Each cymbal features extensive hammering and lathing for the most musical and dynamic non-cast cymbal you've ever heard, with an eye-catching brilliant finish.
