Sabian was founded in 1981 by Robert Zildjian. Having concluded that the choice of dishes available at the time for drummers was insufficient, he set up his company in Meductic, New Brunswick, Canada.
Since the founding of the factory Sabian has become a global innovation center in terms of variety of design and the sound of dishes and sound. Today drummers and percussionists can choose between models ranging from vintage to modern, from bright to dark, from traditional to totally eclectic.
At present it is a global company with distribution in 120 countries, continuing to evolve because worldwide artists are looking for innovative sounds.
