Armand Zildjian

The Zildjian family has been in the cymbal-making business for close to 400 years, using a secret alloy of several metals. All manner of percussionists and drummers use Zildjian cymbals. Michele Norris notes that last week, the company lost its president of a quarter century with the passing of Armand Zildjian, who died of cancer at age 81.
