"The files collected by paula horn contained not only air corn statements but accounts from other witnesses about the native curtis francis and jennifer gets murders. What i was reading on them was unbelievable. There were witness statements out of an investigative files in the pike. County sheriff's office contained in this box of records to this box records contained every document. That somebody like me could only dream of having when you start investigating a murder. That's ten years old at that point in time and what she had in her possession documents that ultimately provided a whole lot of answers for jimmy's family. We win every shred of paper in this case file. I made sure. I understood who every person was who these players are how they were connected. Next job was then to go talk to the victims families. So i went to judy conley. Who is kurt francis. His mother jody bar revealed some of the other statements taken by police in their investigation into kurt. Jennifer's murderer to the family. These accounts however seemed to contradict what era corn initially told authorities. Here again. angie. Montgomery one statement is from a gentleman whose house courtesy was at the night that he got murdered. He stated that his brother and his friend eric corn had left after curtis had left about ten thirty or eleven and took a rifle off the wall and went in killed curtis jenny and that they came back with bloody clothes in the shower took a shower. Got the blood. Often them took their clothes out in the yard and put them in a black trash bag in burnt them all at the command of his mother. Because apparently curtis owed the mother's fiance. Three hundred dollars is what i was told. And then there's another statement and they told the same story that they took a rifle off. The wall came back. Bloody took a shower bird. Close eric. corn denies any and all involvement in curtis and jennifer's murders. Jody bar knew that the information he had could help track down curtis and jennifer killers. But there was one problem. Jody couldn't get any more information from investigators. We can't pull the records in this case. They're all under seal. This is still considered although it's cold it's attending open investigation regardless of whether investigators are actively working or not. These are not records. You can get a hold of under the open records. Act so what you have at that point. The only thing you have are the witnesses and family members who may have been in contact or who may have remembered something from from back when this began. But i knew there was something here. I just had to get somebody from the family to work with us to help us. Then all the sudden this guy was huge. Winter jacket walks in from the backyard and greasy. He's been working on a car. And it's paul francis. His brother is kerr trances and judy. Introduces us and i tell him why why i am there. In his whole demeanor changed he looked angry. And i'm thinking okay. This is this going to be one of those where i get hauled out of the by collar belt loops and paul tells me is. Let's get your car. i've got something to show you. So get the car and we drive from his home over to win road and he walks me out to the edge of the property and he says this is a well and then he starts telling me the story about the story that this well told that he just happened to find. Paul jody that in july of twenty sixteen. He was doing the plumbing job at the same house on winn road that curtis was last seen at the night of his murder in two thousand six. By this point the previous owners had moved out doing plumbing work. So he sees a waterline running outside with an electrical wire running out alongside the pipe. So he's trying to pull this water lineup and it gets to a point where he he can't pull it up out of the ground any longer so then starts pulling this electrical wire and it snakes across the yard and it goes down a hill under a pile of junk in the yard as you described it and he digs down in. He finds this well. Shaft paul told me in the back of his mind and suspicion was that this could hold some sort of answer to his brothers. It sister-in-law's murder. You told me. He had a gut feeling about it. So paul francis called the pike county sheriff's office into investigate by two thousand sixteen. The department was headed up by charlie reader who as we know would later be jailed on charges related to corruption in office at the moment when an twenty six. What were you guys feelings about. Charlie reader were you hopeful. Yeah you're hopeful with every new. Sheriff he also had his hands full because the road and massacre had just happened. We knew that resources were probably stretched. But we also thought the bci the fbi. They're already down here in our county that gave us a little bit of hope of maybe The sheriff will say something and and pick up on this too. We were very hopeful that he would do something and something would happen. So the sheriff. Charlie reader paid a local plumbing company to run on plumbers camera down the well they were able to capture images of a handgun ant then this lever action rifle been that is very similar to the gun that air corn described in his two thousand eight letter that he sent his mom from prison.

"Playing as Zillions and the reason that they're called as is not because Alvis said Meisel. My symbols symbols are called as the trademark that he had to use like we use on the as today in the drummer short to as versus what was coming out of Turkey which were case. Okay so the drummer's Kinda took hold of it and made it their own. So that's where the aim moniker came from. Oakland is based off of the trademark kind. So he's he's doing very very well and he's probably selling fifteen to twenty as soldiers for every one ks all gin. That's being unsold. So they're doing. It's very very successful. Business and Armand and and I'm Bob the growing going up in the business when arm and turned fourteen Alvis brought him in and taught him the secret. Let's just wrap our heads around this for a second rate so he's fourteen years old and dad's GonNa teach you how to play with molten metal right. Yeah really yeah and so so you know Arman would melt with his dad During school vacations in the entire summer break lake from school. So when he wasn't in school he was in. You know pouring molten metal and then two years later. Abbot has taught his his other son. I'm Bob the secret formula. So you had three engines in the United States that that knew how to mix the COP Renton to make the bronze in as time goes on we end the United States into World War Two Arman Goes into the coastguard. And I think Bob went into into the army and So they were they. Were you know fighting for their country. And this is the first time that Abbott essentially writes down the recipe and puts it in a safe safe in case something happens to arm and Bob and something happens to him. Somebody can come along and continue The Children Asian family legacy of symbol. Making sure but nothing. Nothing happened to Bob. Nothing happened arm. And he came back from war and they continued their roles at the company. arm was more of the Foreman of the factory you know working with the Drummer's and picking orders orders and you know Doing symbol making end and and bob kind of more more into sales and marketing and he would travel a lot over to Europe to the distributors. And you know so. They they were really forced to be reckoned with for a long long time but Kazin was still kind of a thorn and alvanos's backside. Yeah and he was just irritated you know in. In from time to time he would himself travel to Turkey. And he'd he'd go to Istanbul Campbell and and go visit the cousins and they would just end up in a fight every time you know because Abbas Khan said you know you really shouldn't be making simple you not real JEN's and they're like well you know. We have the trademark with Fred Gretchen. We're GONNA keep making them so nothing got resolved But there were some time in the in the sixties where Bob Soldier had heard his dad complaining about this and he said well. Jeez you know. I'm going over to to Europe on business. What an I go to Istanbul and talk to the cousins and see if they might be interested in selling us the factory so so let's just think about that for a second? The cousins are the dog. Arians Adele Gary Gotcha. which which their name would have been changed now to Zilch in which is Z.? The I L C A N Some people say they'll can but that's not how it's pronounced the C would have a little Tail on the bottom of it. So it's pronounced Zilch which means Big Bell cymbal related and obviously. Yeah so the the reason that they had to change your name from Dell Gary into Zilch because as the Turkish government decided there could be no more Armenian ending names. Wow so they changed it to something that sounded more like Zil Jn which infuriated addidas even more? I'm sure But they wanted some continuity with with the symbol making legacy but so Abbas the third agreed with with ball. Okay go over and talk to the cousins. So ball went over and said well. We don't have any control over the trademark but we WANNA buy the factory from you in literally. They wrote a check to the cousins and bought the foundry back. That really should have been then. There's in the first place in that kind of goes back to what I was saying where they were selling fifteen. Twenty as agents for every one ks and so they were doing very well all financially so they had the means to be able to buy the factory from them. So now we're going to get into how. How did the American Zilch and company get the Keizo trademark back right so they just bought the factory and Abacus you know he had talked to Fred in the fifties and there was a big court battle? I'm sure that you read about where you know. A jury determined that as children symbols weren't the same as Casals and symbols so they weren't Necessarily the same instruments occasion can continue to be in existence but Alvis went back to Fragrant said you can keep the trademarks you never get another symbol again. Just bought the factory so what that did was for us. Fred Gretchen hand and Fred. Sold the trademark trademark back to Alvis so now Alvis third is is the rightful owner of the factory over in Istanbul and his family's trademarks right. Yeah and what does he do intern. He gives Fred Gretchen other. Tenure exclusive distribution rights for Casals and symbols. Coming out of Turkey. Could why not make some money off of them right so So now I have a disowns. The factory the foundry over there and Because Kissel jains really really associated with with gretch drums. They kept that relationship going in. Addis kept the factory going until about nineteen seventy six thousand nine hundred seventy seven over over in Turkey And and it was decided that you know this was too much of a hassle and they were going to shut it down. So Gosh but I WANNA I WANNA back up into history if I can if I go back to around nineteen sixty eight. Sure this is going to get into the split with Armada Bob so at the time at the Quincy Foundry The teamsters were unionizing the companies in the area and there was a fear that The teamsters are gonNA come in and unionize the factory and Abacus would have no control over his his company that he built through the depression again. Bob Talk to his dad and said listen I I go hunting and fishing coming up in New Brunswick Canada and you know. There's there's guys up there that we could teach how to make symbols. We can build a factory up there and if the teamsters get in in the factory and Quincy we we can. We can lay everybody off and we can make symbols up in Canada. And so what that meant meant was that they would still poor meddle in quincy arm and Bob would go in and And Mel to make the castings. And they would truck to castings castings up like twelve hours to Madonna to You know heat them enrolled them hammer them and leave them up in Canada Alvis. This agreed out of fear that a a union was going to get in so this was going to be the backup plan so they didn't know whether or not the union was going to get in and out so they had to build. This factory has kind of Plan B. Right sure so the factories up there and they're making symbols or making symbols. Call Zilk OHS and that's not to be confused with diesel coz that might have been made In the early thirties so the Zilk does that. Were being made in Canada They they were a little bit center and they were pressed into shape with With a hydraulic. Press and shaping dies Kinda like how we make the as today and then they were laid so so they weren't hammered. Gotcha so it was like a second line. Yeah was the company called as Co.. was that the kind of father. Yes company. Okay Yep now before moving on who was. Is there any relation resilience in the thirties. Was that just another company company like who were those someone different. No that was evidence. Just having like a separate brand didn't know that so as the story goes The teamsters didn't get in by one vote so they didn't have to lay off the workers so They they had this factory factory up in Canada and they were making symbols and come to find out There were selling a lot of Zoll Coz and the the As sales were going down and you know because Alvis you know he he got all the invoices and all the bills and all the payments everyday he he was seeing the decline as soldiers is going up so he made a decision one day. No MOORESVILLE COZ if if people want symbols are going to buy as diligent so a lot of the production in Canada Became as children as well. And there's Canadian ks that are very like sought after her line as well right. Yep so that was when When Avid Society didn't want to have a factory in Turkey anymore any just shut it down Some of the cousins runs were brought up to Canada and they started to make KS up in Canada for very very short. Time was probably only NIA couple of years before Abbas passed away in the difference between the Canadian KS versus the Istanbul cases. The Canadian kids were very flat. It and I remember asking Bill Soldier one day. So you know this whole thing with the Canadian ks. Why would they so flat? Why why weren't you making them like? What Elvin Jones played are Tony Williams play or whatever and he said when the cousins had come over and they started to kind of teach them? You know some of the the Keizo Jen way of doing things because we have to remember making symbol since the thirties. The way that Abbas to third develop right. Yeah he said you know. When the cousins came up they found that the orchestral stroll music was was the most respectable and and they were making symbols for that kind of genre? And that's why when you find a Canadian K.. They're very flat flat So the good for like orchestras but for really great jazz drumming. Like what Elvin Jones are Tony Williams or Philly Joe Jones would play. It was a a different instrument Got Yeah so avid passes away in nineteen seventy nine and and the way that the company was set up because arm was the eldest Son He got more of controlling share Kazoo shares in the company and so he was in control he had. Let's say fifty one percent in bobbehead. Forty nine okay and You know if if you read about any he kind of siblings and business. They don't always get along sure of course so it. It kind of came down to this that Bob Bob didn't WanNa work for his older brother But they both have secret. So that's probably where things get a little sticky right so bob decides that he wants to divorce himself from the Avid Zilch and company and go do his own thing. Arman says you can't do that. You know this Zoll Jn. You can't go in and and make your own symbols and it came down to lawyers and then a judge to make a decision and it was finally decided because was Bob. Zimmerman was taught the secret by his dad And he can't like unlearn at he can't annot it's his birthright to do with it as he wishes so he can he can go ahead and make symbols and the way that he get out of the Avid Company and end got bought out was it. He got the the factory up in Canada and all the equipment inside of it and the only thing that wasn't up there was a melting room. There was no foundry up. They're so It was around one thousand nine hundred eighty that everything was finalizing. Bob Got the the factory up in Canada But part of the deal is is that He can make symbols but he can never use Zilja name in conjunction with this product nor can his ancestors for the rest of time. It's interesting to have these things that for the rest of time. You can't use your name name and I don't think it should be taken for granted that a lot of people don't realize and I didn't until I was in my early twenties I didn't realize that As as we're getting to with the company he started which has Sapien I don't think a lot of people realize it's run by it was started by Robert or Bob Zilja and now run by Andy. Zil Gen That's just such a piece of history that it's just mind blowing so some of the the long term employees I grew up with because I've been here since I was twenty years old. They kind of said that you know they. They saw that that After Abbas was going into to no longer be with us that bobbing arm and weren't going to work together and this was kind of Bob's exit strategy on how he could continue to go and do kind of what he thought was the best way to make symbols versus his His older brother Armand So you know some people say that that Bob kind of orchestrated this through the teamsters potentially coming in and you unionizing Quincy Quincy factory really making the best of that situation right so Part of the deal to we.

"Yes stall number six and you'd go and you might see rugs and who goes and symbols. What's up against the wall? And you say I want some symbol so you pay them for them and they would go back to the neighborhood and and not alloy create the casting and make the symbols for you cool. That's such a different like you said. Now we are word like we get online and we ordering where we go to our music store but man such different Different Time obviously but so going forward a little bit Obviously in what I've seen and correct me if I'm wrong so AVEDIS. The second is more of a modern quote unquote modern Player in this story right doesn't a lot of it. picks up with him correct. Yes I wish. I was up in the hallway because we have tom these tiles on the wall with with kind of the timeline of stuff. So Abbas the second was a very good symbol maker. He actually Lee Built a schooner so he could Sale this symbols to the World Trade Fairs and display display them and he won A lot of awards for the Sound and clarity of his symbols versus what else is being made at the time and and the thing that people don't realize I I don't know about you. I have a mechanical engineering degree. In Deir build a boat would probably sink. No you know he. He said well I need to do this. So he built himself a schooner and he loaded up with you know symbols and he went to the world trade fairs which is unlike the NAMM MM show if the listeners are familiar with the NAMM show. That goes Thursday Friday Saturday. Sunday out in Anaheim The trades fears went for six months. Wow I didn't know that okay. Okay display your wear so you would yeah is really really fantastic so he. He won a lot of awards In the eighteen hundreds so after Avid Nisa second it went to Caribe or Caro- p- both pronunciations are correct therapies more formal. It's like being named John and some people call you jack. So Corollas Open like the like the Jack version of John and Caribe was was Even better than Abbas seconds for as being craftsman he continued to refine stuff but but still away that they were casting the metal and working the metal. You know not a lot of things changed. You know they might have brought in more Heavy machinery like rolling mill. And you know they would have electricity in the factory with lights and stuff like that. But they were still you you know heating the ovens with with Wood and you know and hammering stuff out At an anvil that was attached to a tree. Trunk that's cool so he kinda takes it to the next step. Basically just I mean you're getting into the early nineteen hundreds now correct so it seems like the world is becoming Yup different place in general. So he's he's moving it forward there was there was something not an older worker. Here mentioned to me Because he got to work with Alvis third. We'll get to him in a second butter. Abbas the thirties ago over to Turkey And see the the Keizo factory over there and you know he would come back and say you know they get a donkey walk in inner circle running some gears to run the rolling mill. You know. Why don't they just put a motor on the rolling melt man even so that you know some of the stuff was still very very kind of Archaic that they were doing. But I'm getting ahead of myself shared with the story. Yeah so after Addis the second it went to Arum Arum that that people would be more familiar with sorry the average the second corrupt to Arum okay. in Aram's Zillion he was Alvis. Thirds uncle okay. Hedges that makes sense. Yeah Yeah Yeah. So avid is the second to Caro- p- to Arum who is address. The thirds uncle right. Obviously they kept the company running. So that's worth note but arum pushed the ball forward in in any significant way. I'm GonNa say that he just kinda maintained it At at the time that Arum was running it. There was a lot of Cousins that were working in the factory so Their last name was dull. Gerry and their mother was his ogen MHM But they're they're father's surname was dog and so they they were like the workers during the day and Arum would probably go in and melting the alloy for the castings and then the the cousins would be doing the The rolling in the hammering in the leading. Okay I'm GonNa just chime in with some probably things things that you're gonna just say that's like just folklore. Okay so I think I read somewhere. That arum was a member of an Armenian nationalist group and had a plot plot to kill Sultan Abdul Hamid the second with a homemade bomb. And I read that the story percent true okay and he created an identical carriage bridge to the Sultan and planted a bomb inside. He parked it outside of the mosque. Where the Salton was praying and wanted to blow up Abdulahmad? I'm probably saying that wrong. But the bomb unexploded a few hours early and he was linked to it so he was forced to leave the country and opened Zilch and factory in Bucharest arrest correct. Wow I can't believe that's correct. That story is so nuts. One hundred percent true Arum was a troublemaker. We we we we have to understand too that Being an Armenian in Turkey back then was not good. Yeah there's a whole Armenian gene genocide. That's still not talked about yeah The decisions were spared of course because they were world famous and also It was it was Abbas. Two thirds father horr- Ocean. He was like Attorney General in Turkey so he didn't WanNa get involved in in cymbal making waiting anywhere any way shape or form because it's not like what we see. Today is a real. You know self sustaining business Let's talk about the the The blowing up of the Salton because this is a great story. Because when I give a tour I talk about it. So Arum and His partners in crime crime they had gone to Bucharest and found a carriage maker and they had the carriage maker make an identical version of the sultan's carriage and then Eram and his friends. They bribed the guards like the Sultan secret service to have them switch the carriages outside of the mosque. So they had this like Gilgen bomb. And it's really kind of like if you think about the old cartoons like Wylie Coyote and acme bombs and stuff. I like that. That's the type of bomb was with a fuse. And the Salton went into pray in the bomb went off before he came back and so the plan was he was going to get in the carriage. They were going to assassinate him. So so how did they find out it was. It was aramis friends while the carriage maker that they hired to build this replica. Put put put a tag on it made by you. Know so-and-so carriage makers and Bucharest Romania so word got out that the January massery guards That weren't part of the plot Found this this tag from the carriage and they started to go looking for the guys and and the great thing is not like today where you know. Everybody's being tracked with their phones in their cars. ARUM had time to get out of out of dodge. So he went he went to Bucharest and he set up shop there for an I say this kind of in a facetious funny way for about forty five minutes because he he made very a few symbols there okay but if you find one that says a period Zil Jen NCI Bucharest. They're extremely mainly rare. Man That is unbelievable and then things blow over with with the default and stuff and then he came back to Turkey. Okay okay. There's a couple of times throughout history that I've read about where there's multiple zillions running simultaneously. Be at the as Elgin and the Kaysone and I and are those referring to Caro- or therapy and they would be avedis whatever the would stand for so those are both happening at the same time. We'll get into that. Sure sure and the right now we can because so arum arum goes back to Constantinople. Istanbul whatever the whatever the date is and then he he doesn't really want to be involved in the symbol making businesses getting old So he writes to his nephew in the United States. This is evidence. The third Abbas said come over around nineteen O nine Abbas the third didn't want want to have to go into the Turkish army which is really bad for Armenians and so he came over he he what was he he. It was like a For lack of a better term he escorted a a wealthy families Children on the boat over to the US and he he landed at Ellis Island and then he ended up in Boston and he ended up working for another Armenian making candy and he decided decided. Well why do I want to work for somebody else when I can work for myself. So we started his own candy business so it was something like the New England Confectionery Candy Company or something like that. I don't I know the exact name in. He had quite a few people working for him. And he was selling candy to Sears Roebuck S S Kresge is and Woolworth's and and and stuff like that and so he was doing really well and he received this letter one day from his uncle. You know saying you're the next eldest this mill member of the family. I'm getting old. I don't have any children to pass onto. You need to come back to Turkey and take over our three hundred year Family family business and funny enough. I having been here as long as I have. I got to work with Armin. Zola in the last seven or eight years of his life and and I asked him if your dad got this letter and you know so. I'm sure he was reading it and I said what did he think and arm and said he and my dad read this letter said. I'm not going back to Turkey and I'm not making symbols. They don't make any money doing it because he had a successful candy business so so it was actually Alvis thirds wife Sally that convinced him to look into it and one of the things things will that she said was we have these two young boys at the time Armand was eight and Bob was six and she said something to the effect well. Jeez Abbas Abbas anybody. Anybody can make candy but you know maybe the simple thing would be something that you could take advantage of. Pass it onto the boys because it's kind of unique you know your family's there's been doing it for hundreds of years so he said okay. I'll look into what so. He went on to some music stores in the Boston area and said when he when he got into the shops he said my last name Zoll. Jen does that hold any significance and they all said the same thing if if you want the best symbols in the world you you by soldiers symbol man so he decided to write back to his uncle and say well if if you're willing to come to the US I'll take over the family business and we can set up shop here. 'cause you know if we if we think about the timing timing of this this is around nineteen twenty seven. He gets a letter from his uncle. And you know this correspondence back and forth and decide. Yes okay I'll come over now now. I'll teach you or re teach you how to make symbols. I guess avid so third worked as a teenager as a boy and the factory in Constantinople and Abacus ended up our ring. Something somewhere in the neighborhood of thirty thousand dollars from his wife's family now think about that amount of money back in one thousand nine hundred twenty eight. Yeah big time so let. Let's say it's probably in the magnitude of five five or six million dollars today right. Gosh Yeah and he bought. He bought now the great thing about this other stories I got this right from Armant so I you know. I can't talk about avid a second in detail but I can talk about would arm and told me about his dad. We started this whole thing up and he took the money he bought a a big garage. That was housing housing taxicabs and arm and said Yeah. I remember me and my brother and my dad pushing these old taxi cabs out of this this garage so we could set up you know factory tree and Abbas bought you know a box oven you know like a more modern day pizza oven that you'd see now like a metal one rolling mill copper warrenton hammers Anvils big sledge hammers that would be especially ground Seek put the Cup San and the uncle came over and they started to make symbols and what they what they were making at the time. We're smaller symbols Ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen inches and they would be symbols. That would be used more for like a marching band or Orchestral so so essentially if you think about it you know. You're asking KS NASAL JEN you know. What Albert asserted making the very beginning would essentially be a Casal Jin symbol in in the reason that the symbols coming out at Turkey even into the late nineteen seventies Caucasian because they didn't change trademark so when Arum took over the symbols coming out of Turkey still said Keizo Gernon I'm K- periods Villigen So the thing is is that Abbas the third had no control over the factory in Turkey because Arum signed an agreement prior to writing to his nephew in nineteen in twenty seven Giving Fred Grach Control of the Cajun trademark in total distribution of Casals and symbols in United States. Oh boy so Alvis once. He was re taught how to make symbols by his uncle. He couldn't shut down the factory in Turkey because he didn't control the trademark. Let me ask you it makes sense. Yes it does completely let me ask you this something that I remember reading but not exactly knowing it goes back to the dog Aryan side of the family which I guess is cousins correct. Yep Did Mikhail Dog Aryan run that factory in Turkey and from what I remember hearing that upset arm because it wasn't an exact Zil Jen who's controlling the factory is that right..

"Two dollars a month and get some really cool perks now onto the show walk into the drum history podcast. I'm I'm your host Bart vendors e and today's a really special episode. Because I am talking to Mr Paul Francis of Zil. John Paul how are you. I'm great thank you for having me on the show absolutely This is so cool for me because Some people know this. The very first thing I did ever for drum history was an episode. That didn't get released least and it was all about the children and I did a ton of research and ended up. Just Canyon the whole Episode because I said no any to interview people and get the Real L. Stories. So you have been at Zillion for thirty years and I'll tell people your title is director of symbol innovation so What exactly does that mean? Well my title used to be Director of research and development but it it it really encompasses even more than that because We're we're looking for ways to improve how we currently make symbols New Symbol models to make or even you know new approaches which is to symbol making so they felt that the innovation title Better suited. What I do WANNA daily basis coal honestly honestly for a company that's been around since sixteen twenty three to be so having someone who was just still innovating is is really cool which we'll get get into all that but what I would love to hear is as far back as you can go? Let's just go. Through the whole history of Zillion so along the silk secret alloy that we still make to this day. There's four employees that no the secret that work in our foundry which is about. Let's see three walls behind me where I'm sitting right now and they mixed the copper and tin to make the A. B. Twenty prawns and this recipe to put the copper and tin together was actually first develop discovered In sixteen eighteen and what had happened is the Sultan of Turkey wanted sounded symbols to be made and he summoned Avedis the first to the palace and Constantinople and asked him to make Kim some symbols so avid us went back to his workshop and he put together Eighty percent copper twenty percent ten in such away that you could. He repeatedly enroll it out in hammered in shape it and lay that and it wouldn't break and it had had such a great sound that the sultan gave him the name Zilch which is an Armenian Name it means son of the symbol maker. So it's really really fantastic that Abbas the first was named for the product that he made The alloy is already eighty four hundred years. Old Sales were twenty nineteen. And let me just get into how we got to sixteen twenty three and why that's the beginning of the company is okay so when when avs did this for the sultan he became part of the sultans court so he worked in the palace. So Alvis was it's primarily a metalworker. This is how he he knew what to do with the copper and tin and he probably knew other stuff too like iron and steel and whatnot and he You know work for the Salton for a few years. Then he asked permission if he could leave the palace to start his own little symbol making endeavor and because he was a non Muslim because he was Armenian he added to ask permission in the sultan granted him Permission to leave even go set up a shop in section of Constantinople Kalsa macchia and that was in sixteen twenty three so that was the official establishment of the company. Wow and that has to be one of the oldest companies I'm sure there's older companies. In the world but ZILLION has got to be up there with one of the oldest still existing companies In existence right. Yes one of the the oldest continuous leave running family run businesses. That still makes the same thing I I think there's some older Japanese companies but they started off making bricks. And now they're like a bank. Gotcha okay is the name. There's IT might be the same family but they don't do the same thing so it's like the same name but it's been around for a long long time and it it's just really fantastic. Four hundred introduces a really long time. Yeah now before we go on further let me ask to just symbol history. The act of making kind of noise making things for like parades and military bands and all that stuff that that goes back a ways to correct old the yes. The Chinese have been making symbols for thirty years. What would happen in Turkey is at? The Sultan had the January army and they would march to the the music of horns horns and drums and he wanted some symbols as well on the. There's a lot of you're where the symbols are also used in religious ceremonies and orgies and and and and whatnot but primarily. They were they were used by the genus jerry marching bands and unlike the Chinese symbols. If you if you look at Traditional shape of a tiny symbol and it has that kind of Reversed Type Cup. It looks like Upside Down Triangle. Yeah if you can visualize so if you think about that. Those are handles The original Chinese symbols didn't have any holes in them so when Alvis the first started to make aac symbols and they were very very small. We're talking ten eleven twelve inches in diameter the way that they would put the bell in in Turkey is they would use is on a like a sledgehammer the special keen on it. So if you visualize a symbol today it's hard to to hold it by the cup. So they put a hole in it in you so fed leather straps through them. And that's how they would. They would play the symbols so you got a different type of sound and the Chinese made symbols and because of the the combination of the copper intend to make this be twenty bronze. It's just a beautiful sounding alloy. I mean even to this day. I'm I'm surprised. How many different ways that we can manipulate and get a different sounds? Yeah so avedis though. Oh he this special formula Abbas the first he he came upon something special that was unique. And that is why Zoltan is still so unique. is because of the alloy that he created in sixteen eighteen. Yes tackle YEP so The recipe to make the alloy would get passed on to the eldest next eldest male member of the family and really for three hundred years symbols remained the same way. And if you if if we really look at it what would happen is you'd have to rate to say. I need some symbols and it was kind of a made to order. Thank for the longest time as we get up into The nineteenth and twentieth century. You would see more more Maybe some music stores ordering symbols from from Turkey were they would come in a crate and they were really know models as we we know of today the different sizes might might be in the crate and they would land in New York or Chicago Philadelphia via and if you're privy enough to know that there was going to be a delivery of symbols You could get down there as a as a drummer or percussionist orchestral Castro player and hopefully find something that would work for you which is Pretty different than than what we have. Now Yeah Really. There was no no Keiji have one. That's a little bit brighter or a little bit darker this this like this is what we got so you you had to kind of Make it work but they were. We're very very good at making Symbols I I was just talking to somebody today about having had a old Constantinople Danton Opel K analysed by metallurgy firm alongside with a brand new symbol that was made and the metallurgy is on the money money. It's exactly Eighty twenty bronze with trace elements of silver. And some other stuff in there too. You know when we get when we talk about trace elements were talking about point zero zero zero one one percent so they really had a handle on making the alloy. What was the factory like then early? Like let's say kind of in that early Turkish era they were making these because I think I heard something that was very like part of it was the the open air and the sea kind of salt in the air was a part of it and all that is that is there any truth to that. I think you know those. Those are urban legends. You know the where the factory was was was near the Bosphorus does. It does a lot of stuff that that's made up to to you. Know keep the mystique going on but You know having to have the factory near near the sea is not really necessary. The factory was very very small. Actually it was just a small building. It could've even been just due to Roma's one big room where they would take the castings and put it in a stone oven. And what I'm talking about and Alvin I'm talking about like a pizza. You know like if you go to you you know a A restaurant that that does coal fired pizzas and they have this stone oven and and the corner. That would be the size of the oven. And I'm not sure of this but probably in the very very beginning. They didn't even roll the metal out. They might have hammered the mental out in the beginning before you know they had big steel rollers There was was a separate room to mix the alloy though that was always kept secret from the rest of the workers because from what I understand it was always like relatives that were part of the the symbol making the process. But unless you were a soldier and you didn't you didn't get to go into the area where they would Mussa copper and tin and pour the castings dot shell. It was a it was a very very small Area like I'm right now. Sitting in the driver's lounge of ZILLION factory and it's probably I don't know twenty by twenty and that's probably how big that factory was back in Turkey. Well how many employees think were there early on at that point from from what I understand you know they would. They would gather family members to come in and help them when they would get a water and then they would go back to doing what they were doing. I think is agents had and I'm going back a couple of hundred years. They would have like a stall in the bizarre and Constantinople and they'd have symbols in there. And if you were looking for symbols if you were in Constantinople so you would be walking through the bazaar and you'd you'd say Zoll Jen and they go..
