Paiste decided to concentrate on cymbal production and export. In 1940, the family and the cymbal-making operation moved to Poland, where they continued under extremely difficult conditions, and in 1945 to Germany. Finally, in 1957 a new headquarters and production facility was established in Switzerland.
Zildjian and Sabian both produce a wide range of comparable cymbals that are mostly similarly priced, though some Sabian models are slightly cheaper. Sabian is popular for genres like worship and metal, while Zildjian is more popular for classic rock, punk and is the go-to cymbal brand for jazz drummers.Aug 16, 2021

The result of radically different rotary hammering techniques, thin weights, and a brilliant finish, the A Customs found a happy niche in Zildjian’s lineup. With their crisp, sweet, sophisticated sound, drummers found colorations perfectly suited to modern music.Jan 9, 2014
