This gong is believed to be one of two made for MTV [the other with a slightly different logo design], with this gong being used on MTV throughout the 1980s. It was famously used by Tina Turner when she appeared as a guest presenter for a show where she talked about her favorite music videos in 1986; she kicked off the show by turning upside down on the gong stand [not present] to bang the gong with her feet.
