  • Avedis Zildjian I (the first) was an Armenian alchemist in the city of Constantinople in the early seventeenth century. While attempting to create gold by combining base metals he discovered an alloy of copper tin and traces of silver with unique sound qualities. In 1618 Avedis used his secret alloy to create cymbals of spectacular clarity and power. The sound of the instruments was so extraordinary that the Sultan invited Avedis to live at court (Topkapi Palace) to make cymbals for the Sultan's elite Janissary Bands. As Avedis' reputation grew the Sultan gave him the name Zildjian in Armenian (Zilciyan in Turkish) a word meaning son of cymbal maker. In 1623 Avedis was granted permission to leave the palace in order to start his own business in a suburb of Constantinople named Psamatia. That same business is now nearly four centuries old and has been passed down to Zildjian heirs for fifteen generations. Relocating to America in 1929 Avedis III moved the Zildjian factory to Quincy MA and then to its current location in Norwell MA for Zildjian's 350th Anniversary. The business passed to Avedis' son Armand in 1977 and then to Armand's daughter Craigie in 1999. Currently Craigie and her sister Debbie continue the family tradition in what is recognized as the oldest family-owned business in America. The Zildjian Artist MIDI Groove Library features MIDI grooves performed by 24 artists who have endorsed Zildjian over the years. All grooves were performed on a Yamaha DTX900 electronic drum kit and are concise examples of each player's styles.
