SABIAN was founded in late 1981, on the banks of the St. John River in the tiny village of Meductic, New Brunswick. Here in this quiet peaceful hamlet in eastern Canada, we produce instruments played by some of the world's most famous players.

Playing the very same instruments as the garage band down the street, these artists have come to rely on the quality, durability and sound selection available within our various series. Drummers aren't the only ones choosing SABIAN. Percussionists in many major orchestras including the New York Philharmonic, the Montreal Symphony and the Philadelphia Orchestra, as well as major marching bands around the world, are also playing SABIAN.

What is it about a SABIAN cymbal?

When leading artisans from the ancient city of Istanbul (formerly Constantinople) moved to the New World, they came to SABIAN, bringing their ancient skills with them. Today SABIAN is the only major company producing cymbals hand hammered in the ancient Turkish style. But we don't stop there. At SABIAN we take special care to ensure every cymbal in our seven different series and collection of Signature models is skillfully crafted to meet superior standards.

We craft our cymbals from the purest, most durable bronze alloys. They are available in a wide range of models and sounds that speak to tradition and innovation, with a variety of series and models for every style of music.

The Sound Heard 'Round the World

The first cymbals bearing the ringed SABIAN logo (denoting tonal grooves of a cymbal) emerged from our vaults in early 1982, when that initial pouring of hot, molten bronze was cooled, rolled and hammered out. And thanks to the support of drummers and percussionists around the world, SABIAN continues to make history as the fastest growing cymbal company. You can find SABIAN cymbals in approximately 120 countries!

Our artisans will continue to help more and more musicians express themselves wherever they may be: in the streets, the pubs, the concert halls, the parks—in the towns, villages, countryside, and big cities, listen, and you'll hear the unmistakable, and unparalleled sound of SABIAN.
