Zildjian’s New UK Artist Facility
The Avedis Zildjian Company hosted a UK Artist Session and celebrated the official opening of its new artist facility at Cato Music Ltd, London, on April 1, 2011.
Approximately 130 Zildjian Artists from all over the UK were treated to demonstrations of over 100 new Sound Lab Prototypes, cymbals that are not yet in production, by Paul Francis, Zildjian’s Director of Research & Design/Quality,
An addition to the UK Artist Session this year was Zildjian’s new digital division, Gen16. Artists got a firsthand look at Zildjian’s new electronic sound technology, including the Gen16 Digital Vault and Gen16 AE Cymbals, which won two MIPA awards at this year’s Musikmesse.
The opening event was also attended by James Laney, Lindsay Harvey, and Andy Sadowski from Headstock Distribution Ltd (Zildjian’s UK distributor) as well as Johnnie Allan, Yard Gavrilovic, Nick Simms, and Jamie Henry (John Henry Enterprises).
