How true. I doubt there's a family name that's more synonymous with the industry than Zildjian. Very sad, but what a legacy!

R.I.P Bob.

Indeed, what a legacy... one of the giant legend of the cymbal industry has gone, a huge sad loss in the drumming community.

R.I.P. Robert Zildjian.

What a legacy to uphold; art and science combined to create beautiful and amazing instruments. At once an innovator and a traditional craftsman...my best to his family and friends.

Farewell Robert. You made some great cymbals. I was very fond of the Sabians I owned.

A sad loss. But I am soooooo happy he did what he did! He kept the cymbal-making industry on its toes and pushed innovation that benefits all of us, no matter what brand of bronze we use.

Interesting twist that a Zildjian created Sabian, a rival company. Did you know the company name is a combination of his three children, Sally, Bill, and Andy?

May the family and friends who are grieving for him have the peace that surpasses understanding. I love my Sabian cymbals. Peace and goodwill.

Sad news. I don't really know the full story of how he came to set up Sabian, but I may well look into it.
