Celebrates the history of Zildjian and its pairing with the golden era of jazz music.

These limited-edition Zildjian 400th Anniversary acorn tip jazz drum sticks features a design celebrating the birth of jazz music and the role of Zildjian cymbals in that era. During the 1930s to 1950s, Avedis Zildjian was quick to embrace the talented musicians who were leading the jazz movement. Having been discriminated against during his own childhood as an Armenian living in Turkey, Avedis vowed there would be no place for discrimination at the Zildjian Company. He worked closely with African-American artists like Chick Webb and Papa Jo Jones (who helped Avedis develop the hi-hat). During this period of innovation the “paper thin crash,” “ride,” “splash,” “hi-hat,” and “sizzle” cymbals were all developed and named by Avedis. To celebrate this rich time in Zildjian history, the jazz design on this limited-edition 400th Anniversary acorn tip jazz drum stick evokes the collaborative spirit and continuous movement of jazz music.
