Mike had a large gong hanging behind him for the Teargarden tour. Zildjian makes them in 26", 30", 34" and 40" (based on the photo and assuming a 22" kick drum, Mike's appears to be a 30" or 34"), and they're "one-piece cast construction crafted in China in a Centuries-old tradition. A complex blend of highs and lows with beautiful warm overtones and plenty of attack when necessary."
