Bonham's gong sold for $64,000 to an anonymous collector in 2009.

PS - regarding the actual rock gongs in the video, interesting and thanks for posting, but isn't it a bit of a stretch to call them "gongs"?

Yes I know that's Rodgers Waters, but he's the bass player. Nick Mason (drummer) owned the gong and would typically have it suspended behind him in concert.

I didn't call it a rock gong. But I thought it was an interesting video. It shows that the rock "gong" or "drum" could possibly be older than the log drum or other type of drum/gong.

Dr. Mitch still needs to get me out to Ringing Rocks next time I'm out that way.

If I were Nick Mason and it was my gong I wouldn't have let Waters beat the hell out of it!
I would have told him to get his own.
No idea what make and model it is?

The Pink Floyd Gong is just a Paiste Symphonic. It looks to be 36" - that's what Mason is listed as having back then in the 'Paiste Profiles' book. Nick Mason is a lifelong Paiste endorser.
