Default Worlds Largest Cymbal

Found This:

Made of NS12, 86.6", 253lbs.

The cymbal was used in a recent Sea Odyssey parade
which marked Liverpool's connections with the Titanic.
The story that goes with the cymbal is that its reappearance
was brought on after it was discovered by a giant diver
searching the seas for his young niece.



The Paiste cymbal, made from the same alloy as Paiste Gongs (Nickel Silver NS12), measures a whopping 86.6 inches in diameter and weighs 115kg. It took more than 1,200 working hours to create the massive metal.




Where are those Big Sticks! I wanna hit that!

You would need a cymbal stand the size of a telephone post and tractor trailer tires for cymbal felts

Would love to hear what it sounds like. Who can make a scale stick, so you could hit it proper and record some sounds?

Very cool!
