Sabian is a Canadian cymbal designer and manufacturer. It is one of the "big four" manufacturers of cymbals, along with Zildjian, Meinl and Paiste.[citation needed]

History[edit]

Sabian Cymbals 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. Armand Zildjian was in the lead to operate Zildjian, even though Robert also knew the formula for Zildjian Cymbals. Unsatisfied with the quality, the sound and the very relevance of the cymbals being manufactured at the time, Robert opened Sabian in the small eastern Canadian village of Meductic, New Brunswick.
