World’s Largest Drum Set Is Made Up Of 813 Pieces Of Awesomeness

worlds-largest-drum-set

I haven’t written about someone who’s broken a world record in a while. Those people are always inspiring to me because they believe they can create or do something that has never been done before, and they push themselves until they succeed. Snagging a world record is actually on my own bucket list. I don’t know a lot about drum sets, but I do know that they don’t usually consist of hundreds of pieces. This one is different though. It’s the world’s largest drum set.

When Dr. Mark Temperato got confirmation that his set was in fact officially the world’s largest drum set, it only had 340 pieces. That was in October of 2011. Since then, he has been meticulously added a lot more pieces to it. Now it has 813 pieces, and he’s stopping for now. His birthday is on August 13, so he thought 813 would be a good place to take a break. He plans to hit 1,000 pieces before it’s all said and done.

You might wonder how long it took him to build this…it took him 36 years! Keep in mind, he’s not finished yet. It’s obviously become a life long passion of his. It takes him a whole hour to hit each piece (he has a custom chair that’s extra high so he can reach each one). It takes 4 people 15 hours to put it all together. You can watch the video below to learn more about this incredible feat.

What’s the purpose of building the world’s largest drum set? Mark is a minister at the Breath of Worship Church in Lakeville, New York. He uses his drum set to attract attention and spread the word of God in a unique way. Even though he’s just an amateur musician, something tells me he has built a huge following. Congratulations Mark!
