Mark Temperato, otherwise known as 'RevM', entered the Guinness Book of Records this week with his attempt at the World's largest drum kit.

Mark Temperato, otherwise known as 'RevM', managed to get into the Guinness Book of World Records by proving he could hit every part of it from a seated or standing position, without having to move to the side.

The kit takes 14 ours to assemble and 10 hours to take down, and Temperato uses an 18-wheeler truck to take his mindblowing kit on the road. It's currently kept at the church he works at in Lakeville, New York.
