You must not be a drummer.
I have 14 Zildjian cymbals from "that country."

And Sabian cymbals are from the same family, relocated to Canada after a family shake-up.

Most cymbals are turkish, or based on turkish practices and manufacturing techniques handed down for hundreds of years.

Maybe once or twice you have been "excited" about something from That Country and you don't even know it.

I was a personal acquaintance of the late Armand Zildjian,(former president of Zildjian Inc),who is Armenian,and who was the descendant of Avedis Zildjian, also Armenian.The company has a subsidiary branch,"K.Zildjian,which are manufactured by the Turkish hammering process.As far as the majority of Zildjian cymbals,they are made in the USA,Norwell,Mass to be exact.

I guess that you would agree that these are great cymbals.
Love those K's.
I have some so old that they were not made in Mass.
They were made in the old country.

Zildjian celebrated it's 385th birthday this year.
The comapny was started in the Ottoman empire in 1623.
Avedis was born in 1889 in Samatya, not far from Constantinople.

From the Zildjian website (They think that they started in Turkey, too.)
Like a lot of influential people in music, Avedis came from humble beginnings. "My father was born in 1889 in Samatya, not far from Constantinople," recalled Armand Zildjian (who succeeded his Father as President of the Zildjian cymbal company). "As a boy, Dad spoke Greek, Armenian, Turkish, French, and later (after coming to the U.S.), English. He emigrated to America in 1909 and got a job working in a candy factory in Boston. He was a quick learner, and soon started a candy business of his own. As he told me, "Why would you want to work for someone else when you could have your own business?"'

In 1927, Avedis received a letter from his uncle, Aram, telling him that it was now his turn to take over the ancient family art of cymbal making. But rather than return to Turkey, where the Zildjian family had crafted cymbals since 1623 (and where he himself had apprenticed as a young boy), Avedis convinced Aram to move the company to the U.S.

This is how they got to Mass., as our friend PM has pointed out they are today.

Thanks for reminding me that they are made in Mass now PM, I had forgotten. I almost went to the factory after the 1996 Namm show, but the trip got cancelled.

Now, to make this about BOATING....

Armand was in the Coast Guard during WWII.
