The limited edition Zildjian 400th Anniversary design celebrates the prevalence of Zildjian cymbals in popular music. With the British invasion, Zildjian became the standard in popular music. When The Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, demand for Zildjian cymbals exploded so much that the company ended the year with 90,000 cymbals on backorder. This design is our way of paying homage to 60’s style, inspired by concert posters of that era.
To celebrate 400 Years, Zildjian is releasing a collection of Limited Edition apparel and drumsticks that pay tribute to five major milestones in the company’s history. From the discovery of the proprietary Zildjian alloy to the highlights of our journey that got us to where we are today, these key moments in time will resonate with consumers looking for additional ways to show their love for our iconic brand. Only available in 2023, the 400th Anniversary Collection offers new opportunities for self-expression—inviting consumers to choose one or all of the designs that speak to their personal style and connection with Zildjian’s storied past.
