The jazz drummer rides it, the marching band member crashes it, and the concert percussionist rolls it. What is it? A cymbal. In 1623, Avedis Zildjian created a secret alloy for making cymbals. When his family immigrated to America, they set up shop in the Boston area. Today, the oldest continuous family-run company in the United States is leading cymbal production with innovative sounds and cutting-edge materials, as in the Fast Splashes and Fast Crashes pictured here ($128-$312). Made in Norwell, Massachusetts, by the Avedis Zildjian Company. 781-871-2200; zildjian.com
