It doesn't have a stand. What do I need to throw together to play this thing?!? Should have set it on fire!

sabian.c** says "Stand shown for illustration only.'
that's some mess

a couple of 9000 stands and a cross bar, or you could go full 1.5" rack components

Or, get your local welder to hook you up

Google search / gong stands
there ya' go!

If its for at home thunder only, a couple eyebolts into the ceiling joists should do the job. For travel and on a budget, when I had a borrowed gong I used a cheapy old tubular keyboard stand

I watched a vid with Evelyn Glennie demoing one that was super fun. Didn’t look like $400 worth of fun but it did look interesting as she hit it with sticks and scraped it with steel brushes.

If its the gong style, you’ll need this so it doesn’t fall if you set it on fire

Definitely hoping for gong-style!
