Coming to America - Avedis Zildjian III's 100 Year Anniversary

11/3/2009

AvedisNov. 3 Marks the 100th year anniversary of Avedis Zildjian III coming to the US through Ellis Island. The steam ship, The Martha Washington (pictured left), departed from Greece with the 20 year old "Father of Modern Cymbals" on board. He first came to the states, as many Armenians did at the time, looking for refuge and to fulfill the American Dream. Twenty years later, Avedis took over the family business relocating the factory to Quincy, MA months before the Great Depression in 1929. The rest is history!
