DW DRUMS LATEST ICON SNARE HONORS BOZZIO AND ZAPPA

Frank Zappa’s “Black Page” Immortalized on a Limited Edition Collector’s Series® Snare Drum a Portion of Proceeds to Benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital

The Black Page Icon Snare

(January 18th, 2017 - Oxnard, CA) The latest 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 moustache 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 7” 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.

“Legends live forever,” said Terry Bozzio.

Hand-crafted in DW’s California Custom Shop from 11 plies of select North American Hard Rock Maple, the 6.5” x 14” drum features HVLT shell technology and comes standard with professional snare drum features including True-Pitch 50® Tuning, True-Tone® Snare Wires, True-Hoops®, MAG Throw-Off™ with 3P butt plate™ and DW® Heads™ and special Remo USA® Black Suede® drum heads. Protected by an ultra-thin coat of hand-sprayed polyester gloss lacquer, the limited edition collectable is complimented by black nickel hardware, and includes a deluxe DW carrying case and certificate of authenticity. Only 250 of these drums will ever be produced.

“This marks the 6th DW Icon Snare we have produced,” said DW Executive Vice President and Drum Designer, John Good. “These snares aren’t just signature snares, but rather a tribute to the artist and their musical legacy. It has been an honor to work with the Zappa Family Trust to create this hand-crafted work of art commemorating the incomparable Terry Bozzio and the genius of Frank Zappa’s enduring composition, “The Black Page #1.”
