Farewwell to Robert Zildjian-- his company makes iconic drum equipment in USA
Last week, we reported on Zildjian cymbals, which are used by drummers around the world. Zildjian still manufactures its cymbals in the United States, and the owners have no plans to change that.
Sadly, the news has come that Robert Zildjian has passed away at age 89. After leaving the family business, Zildjian launched Sabian Drums, which grew into a large, successful company. A fond farewell to this strong advocate of quality musical equipment.
