“Sabian Ltd., one of the top two cymbal manufacturers in the world, laids its roots in Canada a quarter century ago after a bitter dispute over ownership divided the business… The company, which employs 150, produces 1.2 million cymbals every year. Sabian makes more than 1,500 different types with rides, crashes and hi-hats being the most popular. Most are made by machine… Cymbals cost between $64 and $770 for individual pieces, with custom-made cymbals commanding a premium.” Sharda Prashad, Toronto Star
