Robert Zildjian, Sabian cymbal manufacturer, dies

BOSTON (AP) Robert "RZ" Zildjian, founder of the Sabian Inc. musical cymbal manufacturing company, has died. He was 89.

Sabian announced Zildjian's death on its website Thursday. The firm was closed until Monday and the company announcement had no details about his death.
Zildjian founded Sabian in 1981 after a legal battle with his brother, Armand, over their inheritance of the family business, Avedis Zildjian Co., a major cymbal maker. The companies remain competitors.

The family's U.S. business was founded in the Boston area in 1928 by their father, Armenian immigrant Avedis Zildjian, and a great-uncle. The rock 'n' roll era brought an expanding demand for its percussion products.
RZ Zildjian began working for his father as a teenager and set up a subsidiary, AZCO, in Meductic, New Brunswick, Canada, in 1968.

Sabian. Cool company name created from the names of his children. I remember when the younger Avedis died a few years back. I disliked that they couldn't make their peace but their competition sure produced some awesome freakin hardware.

Thanks for posting

Thanks for helping thousands of musicians music sound better. As a volunteer drummer for my church, these are the best made cymbals in the WORLD.

RIP Mr. Robert Zildjian.
