Quite a package of mostly K. Series/K. Custom here.  My idea of the ultimate big-band swing set-up would call for, in addition to the K. Hi Hat pair 14"/36cm, K. Splash 12"/30cm, and ORIENTAL™ Classic China 18"/46cm, models that don't exist as of 26 April 2015, but which AZC could easily enough tool up for:  a K. Mega Bell Ride 21"/54cm, plus four mega-bell band cymbals (as crashes) for the K. Zildjian® Constantinople™ range: the 16", 17", 18" and 19" Janissaries.

The Zildjian Symphonic Tone Series Hand Cymbals are a staple in the Zildjian Hand Cymbal family since 1980. Check out the Viennese and French Tone models for something a little different. #handcymbals #zsymphonic

Story
Tagline
Every Company has a story: Ours starts in 1623.
Introduction
Avedis Zildjian I (the first) was an Armenian alchemist in the city of Constantinople in the early seventeenth century. While attempting to create gold by combining base metals, he discovered an alloy of copper, tin, and traces of silver with unique sound qualities. In 1618, Avedis used his secret alloy to create cymbals of spectacular clarity and power. The sound of the instruments was so extraordinary that the Sultan invited Avedis to live at court (Topkapi Palace) to make cymbals for the Sultan's elite Janissary Bands. As Avedis' reputation grew, the Sultan gave him the name "Zildjian" in Armenian (Zilciyan in Turkish), a word meaning "son of cymbal maker."

In 1623, Avedis was granted permission to leave the palace in order to start his own business in a suburb of Constantinople named Psamatia. That same business is now nearly four centuries old and has been passed down to Zildjian heirs for fifteen generations. Relocating to America in 1929, Avedis III moved the Zildjian factory to Quincy, MA and then to its current location in Norwell, MA for Zildjian's 350th Anniversary. The business passed to Avedis' son, Armand in 1977 and then to Armand's daughter, Craigie, in 1999. Currently, Craigie and her sister Debbie continue the family tradition in what is recognized as the oldest family-owned business in America.
