SABIAN was founded in 1981, when Robert Zildjian - one of the world's great names in cymbal making came to the conclusion that drummers needed a better choice of cymbals. Unsatisfied with the quality, the sound and the very relevance of the cymbals being manufactured at the time, he opened SABIAN in the small eastern Canadian village of Meductic, New Brunswick.
At 247Drums in Winchester Ma (just 20 minutes north of Boston) we are extremely proud to sell Sabian Cymbals.
Made in Canada and among the leaders in Cymbals manufacturers, Sabian has been delivering quality and innovation, year and after year. This is why whether in Boston or online, when you are looking for drums, a single drum or cymbals, you owe us a visit. 247drums is the largest owned and operated store in Boston. (Just 20 Min north of the city), and its owned and operated by Sergio Bellotti (faculty at 247drums and Berklee College of Music Percussion Department of Boston)
Since that time the SABIAN Vault has become a global center for cymbal and sound innovation. And that same SABIAN innovation has resulted in an unprecedented level of choice from the most diverse offering of cymbal design ever available. As a result, modern drummers and percussionists can choose from models that range from vintage to modern, from dark to bright, from traditional to downright eclectic.
Visit Sabian.com to discover the vast range of cymbals and percussion instruments available to you - be sure to listen to sound clips and watch performance video. You will quickly agree that SABIAN innovation is all about creating new sounds that matter to musicians. 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. And these are but a few models. There are hundreds of others, both traditional and innovative, producing vintage and modern sounds for drummers and percussionists from all genres.
Today, with offices and depots around the globe, and distribution into approximately 120 countries, SABIAN is exactly what Bob Zildjian and his family envisioned back in 1981. But it's really only the beginning. As musical styles and tastes are continually evolving, so is the art of cymbal making. And no company is better positioned to meet the demand for innovative sounds from artists around the globe. Ask any employee why SABIAN exists, the answer is obvious: "Because Sound Matters!"

SABIAN is located alongside the St. John River, in the forests of New Brunswick, eastern Canada. This is a very wild and green area, so it is only natural that we not only take pride in our cymbal making, but also our record for recycling and ensuring our presence has an absolutely minimal impact on our surroundings.
