Old news, named for Robert Zildjian's kids: Sally, Billy, and Andy.

Andy takes great pleasure at NAMM calling himself Andy Sabian. :)

Just to make you feel better, SM, I wouldn't have known, just as I had no idea that the first Paiste Cymbals were produced in 1906, by Estonian Musician, Michail Toomas Paiste, in his instrument repair shop in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

It's a play on the French words C'est bien... Seeing as it's a Canadian company in New Brunswick...

Was hoping it had some tie-in to the illuminate... guess the illuminati have little/no interest in the drumming world.

I use this as fun trivia thing in my drum lessons from time to time.
I have a lot of useless product knowledge gained in my former years as an AR guy over at Calato.

Little know fact. It's actually a combination of two Armenian words -- "sab" which means "Screw you bro, I'll just make my own damn cymbals.", and "ian" which means "son of".
