While at this year's MusikMesse in Frankfurt, Germany, Zildjian was awarded the 2011 PPV Medien/DrumHeads Magazine - Leser Award for the A Custom EFX series of cymbals!
Every year, thousands of readers of SOUNDCHECK, KEYS, TASTENWELT, DRUMHEADS and GUITAR magazines take part in the voting for the best musical instruments and equipment, the winners of which are honored with the PPVMedien Reader Award. What makes this award so special is that the Reader Awards are given by the users themselves, which makes it a unique distinction for the winning products.
The PPVMedia Reader Awards 2011 were presented at the Musikmesse/Prolight+Sound in "Saal Illusion" of Congress Centre Messe Frankfurt on Wednesday, 6 April.
