Made in the United States, the Avedis Zildjian Company recently showcased how their cymbals are made via a hypnotizing industrial video that follows the process from start to packaging. 

The process which starts at the Avedis Varteresian Melting Room continues with heating, shaping, and hammering and comes to a glorious conclusion after the cymbals are tested. The company prides themselves because they use both old and new world techniques to create their world-famous products.

Almost now 400 years old, the cymbal manufacturer is now based in Norwell, Massachusetts, and is proud of being one of the oldest cymbal manufacturers in the world.
