Dale Crover and Joyful Noise present to you a truly groundbreaking innovation in modern vinyl record / musical instrument hybridization. Never before has one item so accurately resembled the properties of both.

Its name, Thunder Pinky, perfectly sums up the dichotomy of this amazing piece of doubly functional art. As a playable record for your turntable, it (and the music contained within its grooves) is noisy, and sense-rattling like thunder. When percussed, its Bell-less Splash technology (patent pending) sings with an elegant *ping*- a touch of class that your Grindcore, Ska, or Western Swing band has been lacking.

Each of these artisanal cymbal records was hand-crafted in Tucson, AZ, by master record maker and sub-amateur cymbalsmith, Michael Dixon.

Dale Crover demonstrates proper handling and storage of expensive records at approximately 1:15 into the video.

I never knew! Thanks Dale!

Your headband looks good, Flutternuts!  :buzz:

Coming up next from joyful noise: a Dale drumhead that also doubles as a record!

I'd recommend he uses it in Broken Heart Collector - he doesn't hit them very hard in that band and he could save the Thunder Pinky for the most romantic bits.
