Sabian was founded in 1981 by Robert Zildjian, who was unsatisfied with the cymbals being manufactured at the time. Since then, the SABIAN Vault (in Meductic, New Brunswick) has become a global centre for cymbal and sound innovation. And that same SABIAN innovation has resulted in an unprecedented level of choice from the most diverse offering of cymbal designs ever available. As a result, modern drummers and percussionists can choose from models that range from vintage to modern, from dark to bright, from traditional to downright eclectic. Ask any employee why SABIAN exists, the answer is obvious: "Because Sound Matters!"
