Largest percussion group in the World
Mark’s temperato drum kit weighs two and a half tons and includes 813 individually assembled parts that the Lakeville, NY, resident can get to without taking a step. That’s a world record, according to the folks at OWR, who know about such things.
Temperato, who goes by the name RevM, says he stores the kit – which took him 20 years to complete – at Lakeville’s Breath of Worship Church. The 56-year-old temperate works there. He also plays his massive game there. “I use it to worship God,” he told WTEN in 2011. “We love to get the word of God in a very different way.” At the time, the kit boasted a mere 340 pieces and OWR was not ranking the category.
