Max. acceleration of a pendulum changes with its length and mass?

Hi,

If I find out the tangential force on the bob at position 1, it turns out to be m*g*sinθ. From this if I find out acceleration by dividing this equation by m, I get only g*sinθ.

Does it mean the max acceleration of pendulum has got nothing to do with its length or mass but theta?
