Interesting read. The article seems to skip around 200+ years. Also, understandably since this is a Turkish article, It also fails to mention any details about the business continuing in the US in 1927 as Avedis Zildjian, or the transfer of the ownership of the K .Zildjian brand to Armand in around 1977. There are likely other flaws or misstatements in the article, but I'll leave that to Drumaholic and others to correct.
