SABIAN was founded in 1981 by Robert Zildjian in the Canadian village of Meductic, New Brunswick. SABIAN innovation is about creating new sounds. Like the dark, tonal complexity of an Artisan Ride or the quick, trashy response of an O-Zone Crash. X-Treme Crashes produce raw glassiness, while X-Plosion Crashes delivers with raw power. There are 100s of models, both traditional and innovative, producing vintage and modern sounds for drummers and percussionists from all genres.
