Zildjian is, quite simply, the most recognizable name in cymbals. Their incredible family business can be traced back nearly 400 years and 15 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. Zildjian is recognized as our country's oldest family-owned business. All of this institutional knowledge is what defines the legendary Zildjian mystique, and you can hear it in each one of their finely crafted cymbals.
From the classic, bright tones of the Traditional Avedis line, to the high end complexity of their K series, more drummers choose Zildjian to express their musical voice. Zildjian has managed to stay true to their Turkish roots, while at the same time pioneering new innovations for a new generation of musicians. At the Drum Center of Portsmouth, we carry a massive inventory of Zildjian cymbals for every style of music and every budget.
