Universal Percussion Zildjian

Universal Percussion, distributor of Wuhan cymbals, has voluntarily dismissed the trademark infringement action it filed against Avedis Zildjian last month relating to Avedis Zildjian’s allegedly unauthorized use of Universal Percussion’s S mark.

After discussions between principals of the two companies, Universal Percussion has accepted that Avedis Zildjian adopted its stylized “S” for a new line of cymbals to honor and celebrate Sally Zildjian, one of the matriarchs of the Zildjian family. Universal Percussion retracts its prior claims that Avedis Zildjian intentionally adopted a similar S mark for its cymbals to confuse or deceive customers into believing that Avedis Zildjian or its products are affiliated with, or sponsored by, Universal Percussion or Wuhan.
