Reverend Sets a Guinness World Record With a 813-Piece Drum Kit
The Daily Mail is reporting that a reverend has broken the record for world's largest drum kit.

Reverend Mark Temperato (who goes by the stage name RevM) has constructed a kit that features 813 pieces and weighs more than 5,000 lbs. The kit is made up of a mixture of drums, cymbals and cow bells and was assembled by Temperato over a 20 year period.

In order to prove that the kit was fully functional, Temperato had to be able to hit all pieces from either a standing or sitting position without taking a step to either side. With some pieces being up to eight feet away from each other, it takes the drummer an hour to strike each piece on the kit. The mammoth kit also requires up to 17 hours of maintenance a week. Temperato is reportedly already working on ways to make his kit bigger.
