Founded in Constantinople, Zildjian is one of the oldest companies in the world and are known for their cymbals. If you want to by drums online or a complete beginners drumkit online, Zildjian is the company to start with. They also manufacture accessories, so you can find drumsticks online too – especially since their association with the Vic Firth company in 2010. The first Zildjian cymbals were created in 1618 by Avedis Zildjian, an alchemist who was looking for a way to turn base metal into gold. He was unsuccessful, but 400 years later you can buy musical instruments online that he inspired.
