Sabian Crash Cymbals

Sabian, one of the "big four" manufacturers of cymbals, was formed in 1981 after a dispute between brothers Armand and Robert Zildjian. Family tradition had it that the head of the famous Zildjian company would pass its secrets down only to the oldest son, but Avedis Zildjian III gave the information to both his sons, Armand and Robert. Robert formed the word Sabian from the two first letters of the names of his three children Sally, Bill and Andy (a nickname for his son Armand). Sabian cymbals have been used by many famous drummers in the world, including Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Peart of Rush, and Mike Portnoy, formerly of Dream Theater.
