DW Debuts Terry Bozzio “Black Page” Icon Snare at NAMM 2017

The latest DW Drum Workshop Collector’s Series® Icon Snare honors legendary drummer, Terry Bozzio and the extraordinarily complex percussion piece written for him by iconic American composer and musician Frank Zappa entitled, “The Black Page.” Paying homage to this infamous composition for drumset and percussion, “The Black Page” Icon Snare Drum features a laser-engraving of the drum notation and Zappa’s trademark mustache logo in Dyed Black Pear wood which is meticulously inlaid into a background of highly-figured White Birdseye Maple. Each drum is hand-signed by Bozzio and will be accompanied by a limited edition vinyl recording of “The Black Page Drum Solo/Black Page #1” (Zappa Records).  A portion of proceeds from the sale of the snare will be donated to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
