    The following is from the October 2002 issue of Modern Drummer:

    Sabian president Robert Zildjian is an authority on cymbal history. He provided the following information.

    “Zanki cymbals were made by the Zanchi family in Pistoia, Italy. You’ll also see cymbals with the Zanchi name, which is just a differently spelled Trademark.

    “After World War II, four Italian cymbal making families- the Tronchi, Biasi, Busani, and Zanchi families- combined to form the UFIP Company in Pistoia. Since they all used the same process- called roto-casting- it wasn’t too difficult a merger. But the merger didn’t last too long. The Zanchis broke away and stared their own company, producing fine cymbals under their own name. As far as I know, the family still makes cymbals in Pistoia. The sell to a small clientele, mostly in Europe.”

    The best 'thin' crash I ever owned was a 16" Zanki I bought in the mid 70s from a music store in Michigan in the US. It lasted me through 3 decades of weekend warrior bands (rock, reggae, R&B, country, etc.). I made the mistake of letting it go. The guy I sold it to managed to crack it after only another 10 years (or more likely one another drummer to his regular jam sessions did). I wish I could find another. It was a great 'live' cymbal - I'd love to see what it would do in the studio...
